Marshall Electronics, a leading manufacturer of broadcast and proAV cameras and equipment, will showcase its CV730-ND3 PTZ Camera at the 2022 IBC Show (Stand 11.C23), which features the latest NDI®|HX3 technology.

In addition, all Marshall PTZ cameras boast a flexible and smooth 340° horizontal pan range with 120°vertical tilt with speed adjustments from slow to fast depending on how quickly you want to setup the next shot.

Marshall Electronics, an industry leading developer and manufacturer of Broadcast proAV video equipment, debuts the CV620-TBI PTZ camera at the 2022 IBC Show (Stand 11.C23). Designed to auto-track and follow presenters using more natural Pan/Tilt/Zoom movement methods with AI accuracy, the CV620-TBI uses new facial recognition technology and intelligently learns motion dynamics of the subject and anticipates movement. This removes much of the guess work for camera intelligence reducing late or inaccurate maneuvers that require corrective adjustment, greatly minimizing viewer fatigue and motion sickness.

The CV620-TBI (black) and CV620-TWI (white) PTZ cameras are built around new highly sensitive Sony sensor technology with 20x optical zoom range of 5~110mm starting at roughly 60° angle-of-view. The CV620-TBI delivers outstanding color reproduction with exceptional detail even in challenging light environments. These new PTZ cameras feature simultaneous HD outputs of 3GSDI, HDMI and IP ethernet connectivity with up to 1920x1080p resolution at 60fps. Also boasting a flexible 340° horizontal range of movement and 120° vertical tilt, the CV620-TBI provides a large reachable viewing area for the new auto-tracking feature.

Since 1997, TWIST Integration Solutions Technology (TWIST IST) has been supplying the professional broadcast markets of Houston and the surrounding areas with AV integrations for optimum performance.

To satisfy these requirements, Cantrell turned to JVC Professional Video, a division of JVCKENWOOD USA Corporation.

While planning the AV integration for the dedicated marriage space, which includes a chapel and reception hall, Cantrell selected two GY-HC900 CONNECTED CAM™ camcorders, each with a 20x lens and seven-inch JVC ProHD on-camera viewfinder monitor, as well as four KY-PZ100 PTZ cameras. Cantrell and his team also designed a new central control room/studio, which features a JVC DT-N21H ProHD Broadcast Studio LCD monitor, along with the RM-LP250M and RM-LP100 Remote Control Panels, to manage the GY-HC900 and PTZ cameras, respectively.

Navori Labs returns to InfoComm next month with an emphasis on merging the consumer-facing and business elements of digital signage and out-of-home media. InfoComm marks the North American debut of Navori’s groundbreaking QL 2.7 software release, a new StiX hardware media player solution, and its groundbreaking Aquaji marketing analytics solution introduced last year.

QL 2.7 was introduced to significant fanfare in the weeks before this month’s ISE 2022 show. QL 2.7 introduces an expansive suite of new features that cross all core software elements, including a completely rewritten content management user interface, improved native media file support and real-time data feed filtering. QL 2.7 also enables direct integration to Aquaji, which helps businesses and DOOH advertisers precisely measure in-store performance, strengthen operations, and improve customer experiences. As a result, customers using QL and Aquaji now have the added power of combining AI and computer vision technologies built into each solution.

Marshall Debuts Expanded Features for its POV and PTZ Camera Lines

Marshall Electronics, a leading manufacturer of broadcast and proAV cameras and equipment, continues to update and add features to its POV and PTZ camera models with accessory add-ons and easy field-upgradable firmware. These updates are in direct response to customer requirements.

Marshall now offers three levels of Neutral-Density (ND) filters for its IP67-rated CV226 All-Weather Lipstick Camera and CV503-WP All-Weather Miniature HD Camera. In photography and optics, an ND filter reduces or modifies the intensity of all wavelengths, or colors, of light equally, giving no changes in hue of color rendition. It can be a colorless (clear) or grey filter, and is denoted by Wratten number 96, a labeling system for optical filters. The purpose of a standard photographic neutral-density filter is to reduce the amount of light entering the lens. Doing so allows the photographer to select combinations of aperture, exposure and sensor sensitivity that would otherwise produce overexposed video.
