This year’s NAB in New York has kicked off and Marshall Electronics has revealed and number of new products ranging from a new weatherproof camera to a new rackmountable LCD display. Let go over what they revealed.
First up is the CV502-WP Weatherproof POV Camera. Marshall says that this camera has been built to withstand a lot. It’s able to be submerged up to 1m in water with housing and has “total” protection against dust, dirt and sand. The camera features a 2.5 Megapixel sensor that’s reported to deliver 1080p, 1080i and 720p at 59.94/29.97fps.
The camera supports three interchangeable M12 lenses, those being a 2.8mm, 3.6mm, 6mm.
Marshall says that the camera has 3G/HD-SDI outputs and that it can be controlled through RS-485, so you can fine tune the its broadcast settings like exposure, white balance, black level, gamma, brightness and color.
Marshall revealed its second camera at NAB NY, this one being their next generation full HD compact 10X zoom camera, the CV350-10XB/10X. With this camera, they promise twice the zoom range of their previous versions. This camera is built with a 2.5 Megapixel sensor capable of up to 1080p output at up to 60fps.
There was a third camera revealed at NAB NY, and that was the CV225-MB/M Lipstick IP67 HD Camera. Marshall says this camera is capable of capturing full HD video, with a 2.5 Megapixel sensor capable of 1080p, 1080I and 720p at 59.94/29.97fps. It’s also supposed to be waterproof and sealed against rain, dirt and dust and can be mounted in tight spaces thanks to its 3.4” diameter barrel. It definitely looks like it’s pretty compact.
Also announced, was the CV-RCP-100, which is a touchscreen RCP camera control that’s supposed to let you control up to seven cameras at once over RS-485 control. Its controls are all touch screen, except for two knobs for fine-tuning. The remote is able to adjust a number of things like brightness, white balance, exposure, gamma and Pan-Tilt-Zoom-Focus.
For more professional production audio/video, the new AR-DM61-BT multi-channel digital audio monitor is reportedly designed specifically for TV stations, broadcast trucks and transfer stations, offering what Marshall calls “versatile audio analysis functions” and “flexible matrix conversion tools.” The AR-DM61-BT was nominated for Best of Show at this year’s NAB, so it looks like it hold a lot of promise.
Lastly, Marshall announced the M-Lynx-702 Dual 7 LCD Display. It’s a 7” Rackmountable 1024 x 600 LCD Display that Marshall says is a “feature-packed, economical solution perfect for fly-packs, control rooms, routing rooms, and countless other video system applications," with one of those features being dual-loop inputs in 3G-SDI, HDMI, component, and composite.
