An interview from the 2018 NAB Show in New York City with Jackson Root of Marshall Electronics. For over 30 years, Marshall has been a trusted provider of high quality and reliable video, audio and multimedia systems for Broadcast Video, Pro A/V, Pro Audio and OEM applications worldwide. Marshall is dedicated to supplying the Pro A/V market with innovative POV and PTZ cameras, format converters, conferencing microphones and production equipment at great value without sacrificing quality or reliability. In this interview Jackson announces two new compact True 4K Cameras, the 4K60p CV420-CS & the 4K30p CV380-CS, as well as the Miniature High Speed CV506-H12 Camera.

Built around a 12.4-Megapixel, 1/1.7-inch sensor, the Marshall CV420-CS delivers crisp, clear 4096x2160p video with vibrant colors and fast frame rates. The Marshall CV420-CS has outputs of 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI and HDMI 2.0, and it has a Varifocal or Fixed CS/C lens mount capability with DC Auto-Iris plug-in for custom lens adaptions. The CV420-CS also offers the following resolution modes and frame rate settings (industry standard for US broadcast, PAL, NTSC and cinematic 24 fps):

- True 4K (4096x2160p) at 50, 59.94, 60, 25, 29.97, 30, and 24 fps
- UHD (3840x2160p) at 50, 59.94, 60, 25, 29.97, 30, and 24 fps
- Interlaced HD (1920x1080i) at 50, 59.94, and 60 fps
- Progressive HD (1080p and 720p) at 50, 59.94, 25, 29.97, and 24 fps

Remote control for the CV420-CS is operated by RS485 (Visca) or ODS menu joystick, and a wide range of picture adjustment settings are available such as Paint (Red/Blue), White Balance, Gain, Pedestal (blacks), Gamma, Shutter and more. The CV420-CS can capture detailed shots while maintaining a discrete presence and can be used as a fixed “e-PTZ” camera, where select windows of the image can be zoomed and panned within the frame.

The CV380-CS is designed for any point-of-view (POV) camera application where a small, miniature camera can fit into unique locations for compelling angles and viewpoints. The CV380-CS has a varifocal or fixed CS/C lens mount with DC Auto-Iris capability and can accept a range of interchangeable lenses for enhanced customization.

The CV380-CS is among the first additions to Marshall’s latest generation of compact and miniature cameras utilizing a fully redesigned body style and form factor. Special attention has been given to enhance durability in the field with the addition of new structural ‘wings,’ designed to give greater protection to rear connectors during use.

The CV380-CS offers three resolution modes with the following frame rate settings:

- True 4K (4096x2160p) at 30, 29.97, 25, and 24 fps
- UHD (3840x2160p) at 25, 29.97, and 24 fps
- Progressive HD (1080p and 720p) at 50, 59.94, 25, 29.97, and 24 fps
- Interlaced HD (1080i) at 50, 59.94, and 60 fps

The CV506-H12 is among the first additions to Marshall’s latest generation of compact and miniature cameras utilizing a fully redesigned body style and form factor. Special attention has been given to enhance durability in the field with the addition of new structural ‘wings,’ designed to give greater protection to rear connectors during use.

The CV506-H12 offers the following resolution and frame rates settings:

- Progressive HD (1080p and 720p) at 120 fps
- Interlaced HD (1080i) at 50, 59.94, and 60 fps

The M12 lens mount can be used with fixed prime or varifocal lens options, and the lightweight, small footprint build enables it to be placed easily into tight, hard-to-reach locations for unique angles and viewpoints. The CV506-H12 is designed for use in broadcast, live sports, machine vision, process analysis and any other slow-motion application.
