Marshall Electronics continues to develop new cameras designed to improve IP workflows. Marshall released two levels of 4K PTZ cameras within the last year with 30x optical zoom and professional grade sensors: one with up to 4K30 (CV630) resolution and one with up to 4K60 (CV730) resolution. Marshall also recently offered two levels of fixed position cameras with 30x optical zoom and professional grade sensors: one with up to HD60 (CV355-30X) resolution and one with up to UHD60 (CV420-30X).
In looking forward to 2021, Marshall is scheduled to launch a High-Bandwidth NDI® PTZ camera (CV730-BHN) late Q3 with up to 4K60 resolution and 30x optical zoom packed with High-Bandwidth NDI®, NDI®|HX and simultaneous 12GSDI/HDMI2.0 outputs. Also planned for later this year, Marshall has its CV620-BI with 20x optical zoom 3GSDI, HDMI and IP/HEVC/SRT, and the CV620-BN with 20x optical zoom 3GSDI, HDMI and NDI®|HX on its product roadmap.
Lumens® Digital Optics Inc., today unveiled the new VC-BC301P 4K IP POV camera that delivers 4K ultra-clear image at 60fps along with IP connectivity. The camera is applicable for remote communication and video content production in a wide range of markets such as e-sports, live broadcasting, corporate, house of worship, and more.
The VC-BC301P 4K IP POV camera delivers a 4K 60fps crystal clear and ultra-low latency image quality with its 1/1.8” SONY high sensitive sensor. The camera is capable of capturing 102 degrees wide viewing angle in spite of its compact design. It supports Ethernet, HDMI, and USB 3.0 video output that brings simple installation and operational flexibility. Besides, the camera is equipped with an ePTZ function via VC-IR01 remote control that easily controls the camera including pan, tilt, zoom, and other settings. Thanks to its built-in tally light, this gives a director or a presenter visual confirmation that the camera is in operation.
Marshall Electronics, a leading manufacturer of industry leading broadcast and proAV cameras and equipment, has collaborated with CyanView, designer and manufacturer of premiere universal camera control systems, to ensure that select Marshall cameras are compatible with its RCP control panel. This cooperation brings advanced color shading control to several Marshall cameras, as CyanView’s RCP supports Marshall Electronics Miniature HD Cameras (CV503, CV506, CV344, CV346, CV380, CV502), Zoom Block cameras (CV355, CV350) and its Lipstick cameras (CV226, CV225).
“Marshall grew up in the broadcast industry and we’ve been designing equipment for video engineers for over 40 years,” says Tod Musgrave, Director of Cameras at Marshall Electronics. “One of the key features of any camera used in a production workflow is to be able to remote paint and match cameras from the control room. We decided early on that all of our POV cameras had to have this ability and they needed to get integrated into as many third-party RCP and CCU decks as possible. The bottom line is making the customer’s job easier and that is what we have done with this collaboration.”

“At Sony, our purpose is to fill the world with emotion through the power of creativity and technology so we designed the FE 35mm F1.4 GM to perfectly capture the moments that need to be saved forever,” said Neal Manowitz, deputy president for Imaging Products and Solutions Americas at Sony Electronics. “With exquisite resolution and intelligent focusing technology, all in a small, lightweight design, this is an indispensable lens that does not compromise on image quality.”
RTI, a leading control and automation manufacturer, today announced a new Video over IP (VIP) platform that allows integrators to distribute 4K UHD video over a 1GB network switch. This exceptionally flexible system can be installed in minutes, scaled to a virtually unlimited number of endpoints, and controlled natively within the RTI control environment. For the user, everything in the system is conveniently displayed on an RTI touchpanel, remote, or mobile device with video preview, making it easy to align any source with any display.
“Our new VIP platform allows integrators to take advantage of existing network infrastructure to cost-effectively distribute crystal-clear video to displays across installations of any size,” said RTI Director of AV Product Management, Neal Ellsworth. “We’ve designed it so that integrators can deliver the benefits of Video over IP without the need for a deep understanding of networking or the need to manually assign IP addresses. It’s fully integrated into the RTI Integration Designer APEX programming and configuration platform, so all endpoints auto-discover and configure. This saves time on every installation.”
Luxul, the leading innovator of IP networking solutions, today introduced a new five-port PoE+ powered Gigabit switch with PoE pass-through.

Lumens® today unveiled the new professional VC-TR1 auto tracking camera. The VC-TR1 is equipped with an exclusive auto tracking facial detection technology. There are three advanced tracking modes; Stage Tracking, Everywhere Tracking and Partition Tracking. Each advanced tracking mode has its own unique function.
Each tracking mode has its own unique style making the camera applicable for multiple video applications. The Stage Tracking Mode ensures a target on a stage will be tracked fluidly and steadily to present high quality video. For the Everywhere Tracking Mode, a speaker can leave the stage to interact with audience and is capable to move around without wearing any type of tracking device. There are no restrictions for space or connectivity, even if the speaker is obscured by other people. Finally, the Partition Tracking creates up to four preset zones for a presenter to walk in a specific area. The VC-TR1 will capture the content on display and a presenter with the innovative auto tracking feature and smooth PTZ functions. Finally, these three tracking modes can work cohesively. One simple click is needed to track quickly and precisely. This Super Tracking Mode allows you to save cost and time, while providing your video with a variety of shooting ranges.
