AMSTERDAM, JANUARY 28, 2019 – Marshall Electronics and first-time exhibitor MXL Microphones, the professional audio division of Marshall Electronics, will co-exhibit at Booth 15-S282 during ISE 2019. Both brands will showcase their latest technologies for AV and systems integration customers including new compact cameras and a range of conferencing microphone solutions.
“We look forward to showcasing Marshall cameras and MXL’s innovative new conferencing microphones, which are made for unique installations, at this year’s show,” says Tod Musgrave, Director of Cameras at Marshall Electronics. “Our teams are excited to collaborate on these offerings and have plans to continue expanding in the AV/installation space with new bundles that will be introduced later this year.”
MARSHALL SHOWCASES NEW CAMERAS
Marshall Electronics has added three new compact and miniature cameras to its range of camera offerings. The new models are: the compact true 4K60 Marshall CV420-CS, the compact true 4K30 Marshall CV380-CS and the new ultra-high-speed Marshall CV506-H12.
Most relevant to AV and systems integrations professionals is the CV380-CS, designed for any point-of-view (POV) camera application where a small, miniature camera can fit into unique locations for compelling angles and viewpoints. The CV380-CS has a varifocal or fixed CS/C lens mount with DC Auto-Iris capability and can accept a range of interchangeable lenses for enhanced customization.
The CV420-CS is suitable for use in live events, where large projection screens require true 4K resolution. This camera has outputs of 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI and HDMI 2.0, and like the CV-380, has a varifocal or fixed CS/C lens mount capability with DC Auto-Iris plug-in for custom lens adaptions.
The CV506-H12 is built for capturing high-speed action for detailed, high-definition, slow-motion video. The CV506-H12 can be controlled through RS485 (Visca) and has a range of adjustable image settings including Paint (Red/Blue), White Balance, Gain, Pedestal (black), Gamma, Shutter and more. It has a 2-Megapixel, 1/2.8-inch sensor with single HDMI 2.0 output. The M12 lens mount can be used with fixed prime or varifocal lens options, and the lightweight, small footprint build enables it to be placed easily into tight, hard-to-reach locations for unique angles and viewpoints.
Both the CV380-CS and CV506-H12 are among the first additions to Marshall’s latest generation of compact and miniature cameras utilizing a fully redesigned body style and form factor. Special attention has been given to enhance durability in the field with the addition of new structural ‘wings,’ designed to give greater protection to rear connectors during use.
MXL MICROPHONES TO EXHIBIT ZOOM ROOM-COMPATIBLE CONFERENCING MICS
MXL Microphones will make its debut at ISE this year, showcasing its Zoom Room-compatible conferencing microphones, including a USB-powered table-top web conferencing microphone, the MXL AC-360-Z. The MXL AC-360-Z has been co-developed with engineers from Zoom, a leading web conferencing and communications software provider, to enhance the microphone solution for Zoom Rooms and Zoom-enabled conference rooms.
The AC-360-Z is compatible with any Mac or PC device through simple plug-and-play connectivity without needing to download any drivers. When used with Zoom, each quadrant of the AC-360-Z acts as an independent device for optimal performance and fidelity. Link up to three devices together to cover any room, small or large, and each microphone ships with a complete installation kit including cables and mounting options.
In addition to the AC-360-Z, the MXL AC-404-Z Installation Kit for Zoom Rooms and MXL AC-404-LED USB Boundary Microphone will also be showcased at ISE. The AC-404-Z is made to capture 180° of crystal-clear audio in a 25-ft. radius, delivered through simple USB plug-and-play connectivity. The mic also features three internal mic capsules, rugged all-metal body construction and a low-profile design, making it ideal for Zoom Rooms, huddle rooms and any other corporate communications settings.
The LED version can be used to modernize the look and feel of a conference room, huddle space or gaming rig and features a high-performance, three-capsule microphone design that captures crystal clear speech intelligibility. AC-404-LED has a wide pickup pattern and 25-foot range that allows high fidelity, even in a group setting. The microphone easily connects via USB for web conferencing, gaming and more. The glowing base can be personalized with eight preset color modes to match computer equipment, logo or room decor.
