Marshall Electronics CV346 Cameras Used For Streaming

Marshall offers customer testimonies of its CV346 Compact HD camera.

“Today’s current situation has highlighted the importance of being able to successfully live stream productions from various locations for a multitude of applications,” says CEO and founder of Leading Edge Multimedia, David Anderson. “Marshall fits the bill really well because they are so small and yet their image quality is on par with much larger, more expensive cameras. The Marshall cameras shade so well that it is very tough for the untrained eye to tell the difference between many of the extremely expensive, large format broadcast cameras versus a Marshall camera.”

Two recent projects where Anderson found Marshall to be ideal was for Full Gospel Tabernacle Church in Graham, North Carolina and Common Thread Church in Raleigh, North Carolina. “On very short notice we were able to bring in our mobile streaming platform featuring the Marshall CV346 mini cameras and get set up and running in less than an hour,” adds Anderson. “This allows both facilities to produce a quality live-stream on a weekly basis during and after the current COVID-19 pandemic, giving them a means to continue services online despite the inability of having members attend in person.”

Marshall’s CV346 Compact HD camera is built around a next generation 2.5-Megapixel, 1/2.8-inch sensor. It shoots 1920x1080p at 60/59/50fps as well as 1280x720p and interlaced 1920x1080i at 60/59/50fps. The CV346 utilizes a full-sized BNC (3G/HDSDI) and HDMI output connection on the rear panel and locking I/O connection for power, control, and stereo audio input (embedded on all available outputs). The CV346’s CS lens mount offers a wide range of prime and varifocal lens options from ultra-wide to telephoto.

Another recent project where Anderson relied heavily on Marshall was for The World Women’s Wholeness Summit (3W Summit). “We did a full-scale production with a talk show type of set that featured five of the six cameras being Marshall. It was streamed online via Vimeo and Facebook and was a great success.

“Before Marshall we were using consumer cameras in places that we needed a small form factor and to be able to just get a picture,” adds Anderson. “But when we went into different lighting or lower lighting situations, the weakness of that consumer camera was just glaring. Marshall’s CV346 is a balance of image quality and cost. The majority of what I do is streaming-based and with Marshall cameras, we are consistently getting big results that exceed the capabilities of most streaming environments. Our goal at Leading Edge Multimedia is to create a production that will grab the viewers’ attention and thanks in part to Marshall, we are doing just that.”
