CV228: A versatile, all-weather camera.


27 February 2023

The Marshall CV228 weatherproof Lipstick Camera captures crisp, colour accurate HD video from a next generation Sony sensor, wide 4.0mm (85°) lens and efficient precision processors. The feature rich CV228 is built into a durable all-weather cylinder-shaped body only 19.5mm in diameter and 3-meter breakout cable including 3GSDI, remote RS485 and 12V power. CV228 is built for rugged outdoor or dirty environments where dust, dirt, water, mud, and snow become a factor.

Versatile Mounting Solutions

Miniature Camera Size: The Marshall CV228 can be positioned in very discreet locations with the ability to withstand dirty, dusty, and wet environments. Despite its compact form factor, the CV228 produces reliable crystal clear video over full-size 3G/HD-SDI (BNC) in Progressive or Interlaced resolutions up to 1920×1080, and  can be used with the optional CVM-6 accessory mount.

Improved Cable Durability

Improved Sensors and Design: The Marshall CV228 utilises the latest Sony sensor and processor technology with a step-up in video performance and very low signal noise threshold, even in low-light conditions. Additionally, the CV228 contains a more durable and flexible RG6 coaxial breakout cable to withstand heavy use and bend rotation.

Lipstick Mount Holder

Versatile Placement & Mounting: The Marshall CV228 includes a standard 1/4-inch 20 mount socket for use with tripods, gooseneck, and other camera mounting hardware. For enhanced flexibility, combine with the Marshall CVM-6 Adhesive Camera Mount Kit with lipstick clip option.

Flexible Control Options

Flexible Control & Framerate Options: Easily select between 60, 59.94, 50, 30, 29.97, 25 frame-rates at 1920x1080p, 1920x1080i, and 1280x720p resolutions. For remote adjust and match, the CV226 supports RS485 Visca control, allowing precision picture adjustments to be performed from control rooms, OB vans, and or broadcast trucks.


The CV228 (3GSDI) is suitable for use in indoor and outdoor applications including live broadcast production, sportscast, newscast, concerts, reality television, corporate, government, courtroom, house of worship, education, and more.
