The CV500-MB 1080i/59.95 Miniature Broadcast Camera from Marshall Electronics puts broadcast-quality video capabilities in a lightweight and compact design, with up to 1080i resolution at 59.95fps. Weighing in at only 1.8 oz with a 1.25" square housing, the camera can be easily mounted for use as a surveillance camera, or as an unobtrusive camera for television or movie production. An on-screen display (OSD) menu system is easily navigated using the OSD joystick and button.

In a surveillance roll, the high image quality can be partnered with license plate or facial-recognition programs for access systems or to maintain a higher level of security in sensitive areas. Using the motion-detection mode, you can save HDD space by having the system activate only when needed. Up to three areas can be programmed as trigger or exclusion zones, to ensure the system only activates when needed. There are also up to eight privacy areas that can be defined to block certain areas of the field of view from being recorded. This is essential if the camera is set at an entrance with a keypad entry system. Simply program the keypad area as a privacy zone and user-specific access codes are protected. Multiple digital effects such as freeze-frame, image and color flip, and digital zoom add to the camera's abilities.

When using the camera as a production camera, its size enables it to be perfectly placed to get a difficult/unique angle for sports, or easily mounted on a helmet cam for POV shots. It can also be used for Reality TV or hidden-camera applications where shots can be set up without being intrusive to the production. The included frame stand lets the camera be set up by itself and positioned, or use the 1/4"-20 tripod adapter for precise positioning.
