Marshall Electronics Partners With BR Remote to Create Micro P/T Head
Marshall Electronics has partnered with pan/tilt head designer, BR Remote, to design and build a micro P/T head — the CV-PT-HEAD — for Marshall miniature cameras. The new P/T head is compatible with all Marshall 500 series cameras, including the CV503, CV503-WP, CV506, CV506-H12, CV565 and CV566.
According to Marshall, the CV-PT-HEAD body is fewer than 3.5-inches tall and fewer than 2-inches wide, creating one of the smallest P/T footprints available. The CV-PT-HEAD comes with an IP65 weatherproof rating, which means it is dust-tight and protected against water under pressure from any angle. When paired with Marshall’s weatherproof CV503-WP camera, the CV-PT-HEAD creates a movable camera position that can be left out in wet and dirty environments. There is a built-in camera power supply delivering a constant 12V to the camera socket and camera control data. The input voltage is from 12V to 35V, allowing operators to run up to 3,000 feet with a common four-pin XLR cable. Unique for a small head, the input socket for power and control data is on the fixed base. This allows for better freedom of movement, with the camera socket on the moving part with the camera.
All the cameras work with Marshall’s CV-MICRO-JYSTK controller with thumb joystick control.
