The CV420e features a high performance 9-1/2-Megapixel 4K sensor capable of 4K (UHD) resolution up to 60fps with ultra-clean HD resolutions. The camera’s 4.5mm lens features a wide angle, over 100-degree field of view that delivers crystal clear video with minimal distortion. The CV420e’s digital pan, tilt, and zoom comes with more than 250 presets that are savable and selectable from any number of command sources including IR remote, video management software, web browser GUI, OBS plugins, vMix, and a host of other compatible soft codecs and devices.

“We look forward to debuting our first ePTZ camera at the 2022 IBC show,” said Tod Musgrave, director of cameras for Marshall Electronics. “Instead of a robotic movement, CV420e’s ePTZ functionality simulates pan, tilt and zoom operations digitally inside of a larger 4K resolution pixel space. The CV420e will allow users to maintain access to wide angles along with useable digitally zoom and lateral maneuvers within the sensor. This gives our customers another option for capturing unique and creative content from a very compact camera body.”
