Marshall Electronics introduced a new line of 8.5-megapixel IP cameras with a smooth 30x optical zoom and triple-stream H.265/H.264/MJPEG capabilities. The CV420-30X-IP model has native 3840x2160p resolution at 60fps through simultaneous HDMI and IP streams, while the CV355-30X-IP has 1920x1080p resolution at 60fps through 3G/HD-SDI (BNC), IP and HDMI.
Both models use the Sony 8.5 Megapixel 1/2.5-inch sensor. They have a 30x optical zoom block, offering a 4.6mm to 135mm focal length range. This provides a 68-degree horizontal angle-of-view (AOV) at its widest through 3 degrees when fully extended, maintaining image crispness in both wide and tight shots from longer distances.
The IP 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.
The CV420-30X and CV355-30X contain low-light sensitivity and are aimed for broadcast, studio production, traditional sporting events/eSports, courtroom/government assembly, lecture capture, house of worship and live music/events.
