Marshall adds NDI technology to its compact 4K60 camera

The CV420Ne from Marshall Electronics is an NDI|HX3 version of its ultra-wide 100° angle-of-view streaming POV camera, which offers digital robotic movement of pan, tilt and zoom of HD resolutions digitally within the larger UHD (4K) sensor space. The CV420Ne allows users to maintain access to ultra-wide angles along with usable digitally zoom and lateral manoeuvres within the sensor. It uses the new NDI|HX3 codecs with access to NDI5.5 tools, USB 3.0 connectivity with Barco certification and traditional HDMI workflow for a diverse range of AV applications.

The CV420Ne features a large 1/1.8-inch 4K sensor with 9½ Megapixels, capable of crystal-clear 4K (UHD) resolution up to 60fps with support of ultra-clean HD resolutions. The camera's 4.5mm lens features an ultra-wide 100° angle-of-view delivering high-quality video with no spherical distortion. The CV420Ne's digital pan, tilt and zoom comes with more than 250 presets that are savable and selectable from any number of command sources, including IR remote, NDI|Tools, Camera Control Software, web browser GUI, OBS plugins, vMix and a host of other compatible soft codecs and devices.

With the latest NDI|HX3 codec, the camera can be incorporated into various streaming and production workflows. The CV420Ne is suitable for professional pro AV and broadcast applications including AV streaming, remote contribution, podcasting, video collaboration and a range of pro AV and UCC installations that require an ultra-high-quality networkable video source.

The NDI|HX3 format requires slightly higher bandwidth than previous NDI|HX2 but much less than is required for Full-NDI|HB. NDI|HX3 delivers similar low latency as Full-NDI at less than 100ms end-to-end and has video quality performance closer to premium Full-NDI where video quality is not lost from camera source when sent over the network.

The CV420Ne measures 113mm x 70mm x 51mm and comes with rear protection wings to avoid untimely cable disconnect drops. It has an audio 3.5mm input (line/mic) embedded on all available outputs and can be controlled via remote control (included), NDI|Tools and/or USB. The CV420Ne also comes equipped with a front-facing Tally Light for livestreaming.
