Marshall Electronics announces that their new compact true 4K camera is shipping. The Marshall CV420-CS, built around a 12.4-Megapixel, 1/1.7-inch sensor 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 has a Varifocal or Fixed CS/C lens mount capability with DC Auto-Iris plug-in for custom lens adaptions.
The CV420-CS offers the following resolution modes and frame rate settings (industry standard for U.S. 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 OSD 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.
“Releasing an affordable true 4096 x 2160p camera further expands our reach to cinematic and film production,” says Tod Musgrave, Director of Cameras at Marshall. “Additionally, we were able to cater to our broadcast customers with the addition of 24fps, which has been requested for some time now.”
The CV420-CS is suitable for use in live events, where large projection screens require true 4K resolution image capture, as well as film production, sports broadcasting, reality TV shoots and more.
CV420-CS is available now to order for a list price of $4624 including GST. Lens options are also available including fixed focal length and varifocal models.
