An interview with Tod Musgrave of Marshall Electronics about some of their latest offered cameras.
The Marshall CV506 Full-HD Miniature Camera with HDMI offers performance, flexibility, and value in a tiny form factor. Built around a next generation 2.5-Megapixel, 1/2.86-inch sensor, the CV506 delivers ultra-crisp, clear progressive Full-HD video up to 1920x1080p at 60/59/50fps and interlaced 1920x1080i at 60/59/50fps.
The CV506 utilizes full-sized BNC (3G/HDSDI) and HDMI outputs on rear panel and locking I/O connection for power, control, and stereo audio input (embedded on 3G-SDI output). The CV506's threaded M12 lens mount offers a wide range of prime and varifocal lens options.
The CV506 can capture detailed shots while maintaining an ultra-discreet miniature point-of-view perspective without sacrificing versatility or convenience. Remote adjustment and picture settings commands are delivered via common RS485 (Visca) or OSD menu joystick on locking breakout cable. A wide range of picture adjustment settings are available and adjustable from a distance including paint (red/blue), white balance, exposure, gain control, pedestal (blacks), white clip, gamma, and more.
The Marshall Electronices CV226 All-Weather HD Lipstick Camera is small in size and can be mounted virtually anywhere. It features an IP67 rating for dust and water intrusion so you can use it in dirty and wet environments. The camera can capture at 1080p, 1080i, and 720p, outputting through a full-size BNC output. An interchangeable M12 3.6mm lens is included and provides a 72° horizontal angle of view; the lens is covered by a cap that enables the camera to maintain its IP67 rating.
The integrated 10' long breakout cable features a locking power cable connector, a full-size BNC cable, a Phoenix connector for RS-485 Visca control, and a built-in jostick that enables navigating the OSD menu system. The body of the camera incorporates a 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole, allowing you to mount the camera to a variety of mounting systems.
