Marshall Captures all the Heart Stopping, Adrenaline Pumping
Formula 1 Racing Action at Ferrari’s Italian Mugello Circuit
40+ Pan-Tilt-Zoom and Zoom Block Cameras With Weatherproof Housings and Controllers
Supplied by MarCam Europe go Trackside to Deliver Brilliant 4K Images
When Ferrari’s Mugello Circuit made its debut in last year’s Formula 1 championships, the Italian luxury sports car manufacturer was looking for a high-quality, cost effective solution that could capture all the exciting motor sports action in 4K. Searching to find cameras capable of providing ultra-crisp and clear broadcast quality images for the safety, security and control teams at the circuit, Mugello turned to MarCam Europe, one of Marshall Electronics exclusive distribution partners in the region. MarCam specified over 40 Marshall CV630-IP and CV420-18X cameras, including weatherproof housings and PTZ controllers.
The CV630-IP Pan-Tilt-Zoom (PTZ) Camera captures crisp 4K (UHD) video combined with smooth PTZ camera positioning and 30X optical zoom for a versatile networked video solution. The CV630-IP packs a powerful Sony 8-megapixel 1/2.5″ sensor capturing up to Ultra-HD 3840x2160p video, with support for HD 1920x1080p and 1280x720p. The CV420-18X is a compact Zoom Block 18x 4K and UHD camera that offers durability and performance with HDR support. The CV420-18X features a wide range of crystal clear 4K, UHD and HD selections in 4096x2160p, 3840x2160p, 1920x1080p, 1280x720p and interlaced with 1920x1080i.
With over 40 cameras successfully installed around the track, weatherproof dome housings for the CV630-IP PTZ cameras were also installed alongside Marshall controllers for both sets of cameras. The installation, quality and economics of using Marshall cameras together with the advice and support supplied by MarCam Europe at Mugello hasn’t gone unnoticed, with other major sporting venues already looking at the Mugello circuit’s brand-new camera set-up as the new standard for their own venues.
