Marshall Launches POV Global Shutter Cameras With Genlock

Its CV568 and CV368 POV global shutter cameras with genlock are for applications requiring high speed or low light capture.

The cameras offer a 1/1.8” global shutter 3.2MP sensor and 25% larger pixel size, for fast, low latency capture even in low light environments. The CV568 Miniature HD cam is built into the same miniature sized body as other Marshall CV503/CV506 cameras, and have rear panel protection, interchangeable M12 lenses, locking connections and remote adjust/match features.

The CV368 Compact HD cam follows the same body design as the CV344/CV346 cameras with slightly larger CS mount lens type and a wide variety of variable and fixed lens options available.

The CV568/CV368 models pack a much larger, more powerful global shutter sensor with Genlock (signal-sync), producing crystal clear images at affordable price points.

“Global Shutter camera sensors are nothing new to the broadcast pro AV industry, however when our customers are challenged to capture ultra-fast motion within the field-of-view, motion anomalies become more of a challenge,” says Tod Musgrave, Director of Cameras, Marshall Electronics. “Global Shutter sensors perform better in these environments as all pixels are exposed simultaneously. Rolling Shutter sensors roll through the sensor array in sequence (usually top to bottom), which can cause warping or motion blur in extreme speed environments. This is not to say one is better than the other, each play a role and have a purpose in video production.”

The CV568 and CV368’s tri-level sync allows multiple cameras to be plugged into HD workflows already in sync (genlock), which enables seamless transitions between cameras with minimal amount of delay. Tri-level sync runs at higher frequency making the signal sync more accurate and more seamless.
