An interview from the 2015 InfoComm Show in Orlando, Florida with Devan Cress of Marshall Electronics. For almost 30 years, Marshall Electronics has specialized in the development, manufacturing, and distribution of leading edge technology products for a wide range of professional Audio / Video applications. In this interview Devan talks with us about a wide range of products including their Broadcast Monitors, POV Cameras, and the VSW-2200 four channel switcher.
The OR-701A takes the same multi-function waveform and Vectorscope features found in Marshall's OR-702 and adds full range audio speakers and a new vertical audio bar layout for real-time audio monitoring. Any two of the sixteen audio channels being de-embedded from the HD-SDI source may be monitored through the built-in full range speakers. The same audio is available from balanced XLR outputs on the rear panel, along with the two front panel headphone jacks (3.5mm and 1/4'). Each audio output has its own level control. The front panel speakers have Volume, Balance and Mute controls that operate separately from the rear panel line and front panel headphone outputs.
The OR-701A is 3RU and has 11 user-assignable function keys as well as 4 user-assignable rotary encoders. This unit also utilizes a 5 button menu system. The built-in waveform monitor (which includes adjustable White and Black clip level indicators) can be displayed in three different aspect ratios including Full Screen.
The built-in Vectorscope displays in full color and can also be displayed in three different ratios. The Vectorscope has adjustable gain from 1x to 5x. All screens are color matched at the factory and can be auto-adjusted in the field using an optional color probe system. The 64-segment tri-color bar graph meters have user-adjustable reference levels. The OR-701A comes standard with auto-sensing HD-SDI inputs, re-clocked output, and an open modular slot for additional input options.
Ranging in various screen sizes, Marshall Lynx Monitors offer an economic price point and high performance features for any application requiring a high quality, professional-grade LCD monitor. The 7" Rackmountable 1024 x 600 Dual LCD Display is a feature-packed, economical solution perfect for fly-packs, control rooms, routing rooms and countless other video system applications. Multiple video inputs set this product apart from similar-looking products. The M LYNX-702W provides maximum versatility with multiple inputs and Waveform/Vectorscope display with full screen and overlay modes. Dual 1280 x 800 displays with tilting rack mount and 178-degree viewing angle.
Marshall Electronics' MD Series of rack mount monitors offer a flexible modular solution to system integration.These monitors are the World's First HD Monitors with Direct Fiber Optic Video Inputs. All models include Status Display, False Color Filter, Markers, Freeze Function, Color Temperature Presets, RGB Gain / Bias Adjust, Pixel-to-Pixel, Blue Gun, Hard Tally, and more. A variety of modules will become available including the availability of 3G/HD/SDI with loop-through, Fiber-Optic input/output modules, and more.
The CV350-5X features an extremely reliable Canon® Auto Focus System with full HD quality 2 Megapixel 5X Optical Zoom (4-20mm) lens and chip-set with fast, precise Auto-Focus features. The camera comes with an IR Remote Control for zoom and menu functions as well as RS-485 interface using Pelco-D and Sony-VISCA protocols. CV350-5XB cameras deliver high quality full-HD video in 1920x1080i- 59.94fps, 1920x1080p-59.94/29.97fps and 1280x720p- 59.94/29.97fps. CV350-5X models have 60/50/30/25fps in the corresponding resolutions. Output options such as HDSDI, 3GSDI and HDMI are very useful for a variety of applications.
The CV200-MB has a 1/3-inch 2.1 Megapixel CMOS Sensor and 3.6mm 3MP M12 Mount Lens. At 19mm long, the CV200-MB is ideal for hidden camera television shows and webcasts, reality TV, sports broadcasts, and any application requiring a small, broadcast-quality camera. The CV200- MB offers 1920x1080i-59.94fps, 1920x1080p-59.94/29.97fps and 1280x720p-59.94/29.97 plus Auto White Balance, Double Shutter Wide Dynamic Range, Color and Gamma control and other broadcast features not found in other small POV cameras. CV200-M models are available in 60/50/30/25fps for each corresponding resolutions.
Marshall also introduces its mini VS-PTC-50 Joystick Controller that works with all Marshall mini HD cameras that have RS-485 control features. This small footprint PTZ Controller allows users to control menu features and functions from a distance or back in the control room.
The VSW-2200 Seamless Switcher is ideal for small to medium-sized conferences or productions requiring up to four cameras. The switcher has four inputs and supports auto-switching between 3G/HD/SD-SDI formats. The VSW-2200 is controllable via RS-232 or IR remote control. It supports re-clocking and equalization. The VSW-2200 has an SDI out and its firmware is upgradable via the RS-232 port.
The VSW-2200 is part of Marshall’s Unified Communications solutions. This collection of products addresses audio and video needs with a collection of interchangeable components designed to work with a variety of teleconferencing systems and software. Solutions include Marshall POV Pro-Series Cameras with HD-SDI outputs. Up to four Marshall POV Pro-Series cameras can be fed into the VSW-2200 switcher. The SDI output can then be converted to USB 3.0 using Marshall’s VAC-11SU3 converter for videoconferencing. Individual cameras and microphones are interchangeable, allowing the user to customize an affordable, versatile solution.
