Marshall Electronics Unveils New IP POV Cameras With 30X Optical Zoom

Marshall Electronics has introduced two new POV cameras—one HD- and the other 4K UHD-capable—that offer 8.5 Megapixel IP acquisition with smooth 30x Optical Zoom and triple-stream H.265/H.264/MJPEG capabilities. The new models actually represent a product relaunch of IP cameras for the company.

The Marshall CV420-30X-IP model delivers up to UHD (3840x2160p) resolution at 60fps through simultaneous HDMI and IP streams, while the CV355-30X-IP delivers up to HD (1920x1080p) resolution at 60fps through 3G/HD-SDI (BNC), IP and HDMI. Both models feature a Sony 8.5 Megapixel 1/2.5-inch sensor and 30x optical zoom block, providing flexible integration in networked HD and UHD workflows. The 30X optical zoom range offers a flexible 4.6mm to 135mm focal length range, providing 68 degrees horizontal angle-of-view (AOV) at its widest through 3 degrees when fully extended. This helps them capture crisp images in both wide and tight shots from longer distances.

An Ethernet I/O port supports triple stream H.265/H.264/MJPEG video with MPEG-TS support, common IP control protocols, and power (PoE) over a single Ethernet cable with stereo audio embedding through a 3.5mm input on the rear panel. The CV420-30X-IP and CV355-30X-IP utilize common control protocols including Visca over IP, Onvif and Pelco, and are compatible with the new Marshall VS-PTC-IP IP Camera Controller. They also feature exceptional low-light sensitivity.

The CV420-30X-IP (UHD) is shipping now, while the CV355-30X-IP (HD) is slated for release on November 11, 2019.
