As 12G-SDI becomes more widely adopted with its ability to carry low latency video up to 4K/60fps resolution over coaxial (12GSDI) cable, Marshall Electronics announces its CV420-30X 12GSDI camera at NAB 2021 (Booth C5636). This all-in-one model with 12GSDI, HDMI and IP (HEVC/SRT) simultaneous outputs fits into a wide variety of broadcast and professional A/V workflow capable applications.
The CV420-30X utilises a high performing Sony Exmor-R sensor to capture crisp 4K (UHD) video up to 3840x2160p at 60fps through a long 30X optical zoom range. Its straightforward design and ease of use make this a valuable camera for live broadcast, houses of worship, sportscasts, newscasts, reality television, concert production, corporate video, courtroom capture, government assembly, education, social media streaming and more.
The long 30X optical zoom lens offers an extended zoom range from 4.6- to 135-mm, starting at just under 70° all the way out to 3° horizontal angle-of-view for maintaining image crispness from ultra-wide to ultra-long telephoto shots. The CV420-30X also operates with exceptional low-light sensitivity, ensuring a clear picture in variable and challenging lighting conditions.
“Marshall is getting more and more requests for 12GSDI as 4K becomes more widely adopted,” says Tod Musgrave, Director of Cameras for Marshall Electronics. “The CV420-30X is suitable for use in networked UHD and HD workflows with one-cable to camera ease of setup while leaving the 12GSDI output available to plug into video switching or uncompressed video capture. This new model represents best-in-class within our 30X zoom block camera range, and we are excited to showcase this at NAB, along with our other new camera and monitor products from Marshall.”
The CV420-30X offers 12GSDI (BNC) output as well as three IP streams with multiple protocol support including HEVC and SRT (4K60). SRT is an open-source video transport protocol and technology stack that optimises video streaming performance across unpredictable networks. Protocols including DHCP, DNS, HTTP, HTTPS, IPv4, NTP, RTSP, TCP, MPEG-TS, RTMP and RTMPS are also supported. One ethernet (CAT) cable to camera provides up to UHD video, audio, control and power (PoE+) over one cable with IP (HEVC) and 12GSDI/HDMI simultaneous outputs with stereo audio embedding.
CV420-30X further extends the Marshall IP camera line to offer solutions for every IP network project. Marshall also now offers NETGEAR’s full line of AV Managed Switches with compatible assurance, endorsement, unmatched technical support and ultra-easy setup and management.
The Marshall VS-PTC-IP broadcast-style controller is an easy setup command source for the CV420-30X with one cable IP (Ethernet) plugin, however it can also be controlled via Video Management Software (VMS), OBS Studio Plugins/Docks, Software GUI (web browser), and a variety of other command sources using Marshall Electronics’ open-source command structure.
