Marshall Electronics brought three new cameras to NAB Show New York, including two compact 4K cameras (yes, they really shoot at a full 4096 x 2160) and a high-speed camera with a two megapixel sensor.
The CV420-CS targets live events, film production, sports broadcast, and reality TV, with 12G-SDI and HDMI 2.0 outputs. The 12 megapixel Sony-built 1/1.7-inch sensor captures 4K, UHD, 1080p, 1080i, or 720p at up to 60 frames per second. The CV420 has a varifocal or fixed CS/C lens-mount with DC Auto-Iris capabilities. Mic and line-level TRS stereo audio inputs are provided.
Marshall suggests considering it for a fixed position where its true 4K wide shot can be broken down into smaller, HD-resolution windows. It is expected to ship in November.
The CV380-CS is a POV camera designed to fit in tight locations, limited to 6G-SDI and HDMI 1.4 output. Much like the CV420, it has a varifocal or fixed CS/C lens mount with DV Auto-Iris capability and mic and line-level TRS stereo audio inputs. But both 4K and UHD recording top out at 30p. (HD recordings can still go up to 60, though.)
It should ship in December.
And the miniature CV506-H12 is built for slow-motion video. Supporting RS485 control, it has a 2 megapixel 1/2.8-inch image sensor and M12 interchangeable lens mount with a single, HDMI 2.0 output. Frame rates range up to 120fps in 1080p or 720p resolution.
It’s also designed to be highly compact for getting unusual angles, Marshall said. It’s coming in January.
The CV380-CS and CV506-H12 share a redesigned body style with “wings” designed to protect the rear connectors, Marshall said. Pricing for the three cameras was not announced.
