LAS VEGAS—Marshall Electronics has announced that it will introduce the CV730-BHN High-Bandwidth NDI PTZ Camera at the 2022 NAB Show.

This new 4K robotic PTZ camera contains traditional outputs including two simultaneous SDI (BNC) outputs with genlockable 12GSDI and 3GSDI, as well as HDMI and USB3.0 options at the ready, the company said. 

CV730-BHN also features the ultra-fast and lossless High Bandwidth NDI streaming ability commonly known as Full-NDI, while offering the newly released NDI|HX3 that can deliver similar low-latency and superior quality video performance in slightly less bandwidth network infrastructure.

“We are thrilled to showcase our High-Bandwidth CV730-BHN NDI camera to NAB attendees,” says Tod Musgrave, director of cameras for Marshall Electronics. “This is significant not only because it provides the lowest possible latency FULL-NDI chipset with lossless video streams but also features the newly released NDI|HX3 video codec, which greatly enhances the NDI|HX performance in more challenging network infrastructures.”

Marshall announced that the CV730-BHN features a Sony 1/1.8” 4K sensor with 9 million pixels and square pixel array packed behind a long 30x optical zoom range (6.5~ 202mm). The CV730-BHN is Full-NDI compatible with streaming options of High-Bandwidth NDI, NDI|HX3 premium video codec, and standard IP (HEVC), while also offering 12GSDI, 3GSDI, HDMI, and USB3.0 outputs. It is feature rich and fits into a wide range of broadcast and proAV applications requiring low latency streaming with various bandwidth networks. Also included is PoE++ for one-cable to camera setup for video, audio, control, power and tally.

High Bandwidth NDI requires higher network bandwidth but in return delivers ultra-low latency video nearing the quickness of traditional SDI, while maintaining premium quality and lossless video performance, the company explained. The new NDI|HX3 requires slightly higher bandwidth than previous NDI|HX but much less than is required for High Bandwidth NDI. NDI|HX3 delivers similar low latency as High Bandwidth NDI at less than 100ms end-to-end and video quality performance closer to premium High Bandwidth NDI quality. 

The Marshall CV730-BHN will incorporate the premium High Bandwidth NDI FPGA while offering the benefits of NDI|HX3 and standard IP (HEVC) streams. 

Available in white and black, the CV-730-BHN cameras are scheduled to be available later this year. 

Marshall also carries several NETGEAR M4250-series switches with NDI configuration built-in and ready for easy setup with Marshall NDI cameras.

Marshall will be showing the camera during the 2022 NAB Show (opens in new tab) between April 23 and 27 in Last Vegas at Booth C1307. For more information, visit www.marshall-usa.com (opens in new tab)
