The CV500-MB HD-SDI Miniature Camera is a uniquely small and powerful camera that meets the need for high resolution video for Broadcast applications. The CV500-MB provides full HD 1920x1080i/59.94 video for filming all types of Broadcast projects such as Reality TV, Extreme Sports, Documentaries, Stunt Filming, Hidden Cams, and others. The CV500-MB is only 1.5" (36.5mm) square, enabling unobtrusive placement or concealment.
These HD cameras incorporate a newly designed Panasonic 2.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor with video enhancement features such as Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), Digital Noise Reduction (2D+3D), High Light Compensation (HLC), Automatic White Balance, Digital Defog, Auto Day/Night, Privacy Masking, Digital Zoom, and Motion Detection offer effective tools for rich video quality in all types of applications. Marshall offers a variety of M12 mount lenses for specific requirements.
Other models available upon request: CV500-M 1080p/60(50) (3G-SDI), 1080p/30(25), 1080i/60, 720p/60(50) and CV510-MPH pinhole camera.
All camera versions can switch between PAL and NTSC (meaning 60 becomes 50 and 30 becomes 25) and can support a second simultaneous video stream over BNC output.
"The CV500-MB is capable of capturing difficult and compelling shots by going where other cameras can't go," said Marshall Electronics CEO Leonard Marshall in a prepared statement. "With the prevalence of reality and documentary television, a tiny camera with these capabilities is invaluable."
The mini-cam is built around a Sony Exmor 2.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor and a prime lens, and Marshall says it will offer other lens options to accommodate specific shooting conditions. Also on board are video-enhancement features including wide dynamic range, digital noise reduction, high light compensation, auto white balance, digital defog, and more.
Marshall says the CV500 is available now for $499, with colume discounts available.
