Do you want the smoothness and compact form factor of a PTZ setup for your production or live event... but even SMALLER?! Marshall has done it! With the MAR-CVKIT-1, which includes the new Micro PT Head from Marshall, the Micro Joystick Controller, and a CV506 Mini HD Camera, you can get great HD production quality right in the palm of your hand!
The CV-PT-HEAD Micro PT Head is just 3.6" (approx. 90mm) tall and is possibly the smallest remote head of its type ever on the market with a sturdy weatherproof body and unique ability to be mounted inverted. The input socket for power and control data is on the fixed base. This allows for better freedom of movement, with the camera socket on the moving part with the camera.
Suitable for Marshall CV500-series cameras, such as CV503, CV506, CV565, and CV566, and because CV-PT-HEAD is IP65 weatherproof rated, it can be paired with a Marshall CV503-WP camera, which creates an excellent movable camera position that can be left out in wet and dirty environments.
The CV-MICRO-JYSTK MIcro Joystick Controller is the smallest and most cost-effective joystick available for Marshall Miniature Cameras and the CV-PT-HEAD. For many applications, the functionality of this joystick is all that is required for straight forward and easy setup operation. A familiar thumb-type joystick controls both the pan, tilt, zoom & focus and is also used to cycle through the extensive menu functions. It has camera control protocols and CCU functions built in.
The CV506 Full-HD Miniature Camera with HDMI offers performance, flexibility, and value in a tiny form factor. Built around a next generation 2.5-Megapixel, 1/2.86-inch sensor, the CV506 delivers ultra-crisp, clear progressive Full-HD video up to 1920x1080p at 60/59/50fps and interlaced 1920x1080i at 59.94/50fps.
The CV506 utilizes full-sized BNC (3G/HDSDI) and HDMI outputs on the rear panel and locking I/O connection for power, control, and stereo audio input (embedded on 3G-SDI output). The CV506's threaded M12 lens mount offers a wide range of prime and varifocal lens options.
The CV506 can capture detailed shots while maintaining an ultra-discreet miniature point-of-view perspective without sacrificing versatility or convenience. Remote adjustment and picture settings commands are delivered via common RS485 (Visca) or OSD menu joystick on a locking breakout cable. A wide range of picture adjustment settings are available and adjustable from a distance including paint (red/blue), white balance, exposure, gain control, pedestal (blacks), white clip, gamma, and more.
Overall, this small and compact setup offers a more discreet way of capturing HD video from all angles and all spaces, big or small, and in any kind of environment!
