|At ISC West, Marshall will showcase a new feature on the MEI VMS, called “User Sizeable Source Panes”
Marshall Electronics announces at ISC West the release of its new complete line of 1080p/59.94 IP products. 2014 will mark the culmination of several years of R&D effort to bring to the Enterprise Security and Surveillance Market a new standard in quality, performance, operability and value in the burgeoning 1080p/59.94 arena.
Marshall brings to the enterprise security and surveillance dealer, integrator and end user its years of experience in the Broadcast and Professional A/V industry to provide the innovation necessary to deliver the promise that 60p brings.
Nigel Hamley, Technical Support and Presales Manager at Marshall Electronics, says, “The use of 1080p/59.94 in security and surveillance is a significant technological jump because now we can not only identify that a breach took place, but exactly who and what they were doing. The picture clarity is so much better. Many of our cameras now feature WDR (Wide Dynamic Range), a technique that allow for a greater range of scene illumination from white to black. Details in the shadows are better represented and bright parts of the scene don’t burn out.”
Marshall’s flagship cameras - the VS-547-3GSDI 30x Zoom Box Camera and its partner the VS-577-3GSDI 30x Zoom PTZ Camera - support low sub frame latency from the 3GSDI output in various resolutions up to 1080p/59.94. These uniquely designed cameras fill the need for live video output with super low latency.
The VS-547-3GSDI and VS-577-3GSDI cameras also support our latest generation of codec, supporting one primary and three secondary streams, all in full HD together with stereo audio. Unicast, multicast, push and pull streaming are supported and controlled from a common, easy-to-use browser interface.
To complement these cameras, Marshall exhibits special infrared cameras utilising the same sensor. The VS-577IR is a 30x Zoom PTZ Camera with an impressive 150 meter reach using its integrated 2 piece IR lighting. The VS-5336IR is a rugged bullet camera with a 3x varifocal zoom with a 20 meter IR lighting throw.
Marshall has control surfaces like the VS-TKC-100, which feature a keyboard and joystick that can control a number of IP cameras with or without the use of a computer. Presentation of these high performance live feeds can be seen at ISC West booth # 2102. The feeds will be presented on Marshall’s new 2K/4K monitor, the QVW-2410. This innovative monitor offers a quad split in 1080i and 1080p and it is future proof for the new 4K standard.

The VS-104-3GSDI is a new user-selectable encoder/decoder in various resolutions up to 1080p/59.94. Marshall has taken their famous VS-102-HDSDI concept of one box being either an encoder or decoder to new levels. The VS-104-3GSDI is the all round video server, having I/O Capability of CVBS, HDMI, HDSDI and 3GSDI - all this with embedded or analog stereo audio. Like the cameras, unicast, multicast, push and pull streaming are supported and controlled from a common, easy-to-use browser interface now featuring 4:2:2 Color Space.
The VS-NVR-910 and VS-NVR-1610 are new NVRs (network video recorder) with stereo audio. The VS-NVR-910 supports 9 cameras and VS-NVR-1610 is for 16 cameras. These Linux stand-alone NVRs can support 2 internal SATA video drives (total 8TB) but can be expanded by connecting to the e-SATA connector on the rear of the unit. The units include fully featured NVR Manager Software to control the functions of the camera and the management of the unit.
Rounding out the new products is Marshall’s Economical 1080p/59.94 Camera Series; these cameras feature streaming rather that the advanced baseband video functions. The VS-5326-BIR is a bullet camera with IR capability. The VS-5326 is a box camera with interchangeable auto iris lens. The VS-5526IR is a dome camera with IR. All these cameras support WDR, quad streaming (1 primary, 3 secondary) and auto sensing to switch the IR on at night.
Marshall’ VMS (Video Management Software) is included with all its IP products to manage, control, view and record cameras or encoders. MEI VMS supports 16 Sources on a Windows Computer. Larger versions supporting up to 128 Cameras are available by purchasing a one time perpetual license. At ISC West, Marshall is showcasing a new feature on the MEI VMS, called “User Sizeable Source Panes”. The user can customise the look of the software multiviewer, by making one source a larger pane than the others. Also more options are offered this year to export recording to other users. Formats supported are AVI, MP4, WMV, MEI Multiviewer RAW, MEI Multiviewer with Self Contained Viewer.
Also at ISC West will be the VS-541-HDSDI 30x Zoom Box Camera and its partner the VS-571-HDSDI 30x Zoom PTZ Camera with the VS-102-HDSDI Encoder/Decoder. These products are now in use all over the world.
The entire family of Marshall IP products is displayed at ISC West booth #2102. The new products are expected to be released during the second quarter of this year.
