IBC 2018: Marshall CV380-CS – professional replacement for an actioncam

Marshall has been manufacturing small, compact, miniature size cameras with professional SDI connectors such as the CV365-CGB and the CV505-M for some time now.

And now Marshall’s compact camera series will be expanded! Namely to the CV380-CS with UHD resolution. The CV380-CS is a POV camera and a professional replacement for an Actioncam.


The CV380-CS is available in four resolutions with different refresh rates:

-True 4K (4096x2160p) at 50, 59.94, 60, 25, 29.97, 30, and 24 fps

-HD (720p) with 50, 59.94, 25, 29.97 and 24 frames

-UHD (3840x2160p) with 25, 29.97, and 24 frames

-Full HD (1080p) with 50, 59.94, 25, 29.97 and 24 frames


The CV380-CS has a 1 / 2.5-inch 8.5-megapixel sensor.

Furthermore, it offers professional adjustment functions such as white balance, gamma, gain and can be set remotely via RS485 (Visca). There are many interchangeable lenses for the camera – from fisheye to wide angle. Domit allows you to set the camera better on the respective properties on the set.

The manufacturer reports that the CV-380-CS is a next generation camera with an extremely sturdy housing and a completely redesigned interior.

Lenses for cameras like these are incredibly cheap. For example, the Marshall Electronics 3MP CS-mount 5-50mm IR varifocal lens costs $ 169 USD.

The price of the camera, the Marshall is not yet known. You can see the CV380-CS at the IBC from September 14th to 18th in Amsterdam Booth # 12.D20.

In October of this year, the camera will be available for a retail price of $ 1395.
