Marshall has announced that its new CV620-TBI PTZ cameras will be able to automatically track and track subjects using an intelligent auto-tracking AI feature.
The CV620-TBI uses new facial recognition technology and intelligently learns the subject’s movement dynamics and anticipates movement. This eliminates much of the guesswork for camera intelligence, reducing late or imprecise maneuvers that require corrective adjustment.
The CV620-TBI (black) and CV620-TWI (white) PTZ cameras are built around a Sony sensor and feature 20x optical zoom with a range of 5-110mm from an angle of view of about 60°. These new PTZ cameras feature simultaneous HD outputs of 3GSDI Ethernet, HDMI and IP connectivity with resolution up to 1920x1080p at 60fps. Also boasting a flexible 340° horizontal range of motion and 120° vertical tilt, the CV620-TBI provides a large accessible viewing area for the new auto-tracking feature.
Track and Follow technology is not new to the PTZ camera market. Early versions required a secondary fixed camera usually installed in the base of the camera to scan the environment and required a cord to be carried through the speaker. Viewers watching early auto-tracking cameras had to deal with motion sickness and fatigue. As the auto-follow features have been refined over the years, these elements have been removed and much smoother maneuvers with greater precision have been implemented.
The new CV620-TBI trail and trail cameras are equipped for local AV production workflows with 3GSDI and HDMI outputs, as well as a remote AV over IP camera source. Ethernet (IP) connectivity offers easy configuration and operation with a single cable for PoE+, video, audio, pointing and control.
Marshall cameras are compatible and controllable from popular software codecs such as Project OBS, vMix and other software production tools. Control can be sent from the included IR remote or a Marshall VS-PTC-IP broadcast-style controller, VS-PTC-200 entry-level controller, video management software ( VMS), a software GUI from a web browser, as well as third-party control decks, such as Skaarhoj and others.
Marshall is also working with companies like Netgear to improve ease of setup with managed switches specifically designed for AV over IP. Marshall cameras can be selected in the Netgear M4250 and M4300 series switches to enable quick setup and configuration.
