Marshall To Debut High Bandwidth PTZ Camera

New NDI PTZ camera with NDIHX3 and FULL-NDI high bandwidth with variety of low latency output options is ideal for broadcast applications


17 March 2022

Broadcast and proAV equipment manufacturer, Marshall Electronics, 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. CV730-BHN also features the ultra-fast and lossless High Bandwidth NDI streaming ability commonly known as Full-NDI, while offering the newly released NDIHX3 that can deliver similar low-latency and superior quality video performance in slightly less bandwidth network infrastructure.

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, NDIHX3 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 new NDIHX3 requires slightly higher bandwidth than previous NDIHX but much less than is required for High Bandwidth NDI. NDIHX3 delivers similar low latency as High Bandwidth NDI at less then 100ms end-to-end and video quality performance closer to premium High Bandwidth NDI quality. NDIHX3 is a big step forward for NDIHX while reducing the bandwidth requirements of full-NDI and delivering similar speeds and video quality.

The Marshall CV730-BHN will incorporate the premium High Bandwidth NDI FPGA while offering the benefits of NDIHX3 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.
