Marshall Electronics Releases Two Wireless HDMI Monitor Systems
Marshall’s wireless systems work with virtually any HDMI monitor to allow camera operators total freedom of movement while the director views the action on a stationary monitor.
El Segundo, Calif. (March 28, 2014) - Marshall Electronics' new Professional Wireless Video Production Systems offer new cutting-edge video technology for remote video monitoring. Two transmitter options are available, either a camera-powered stick transmitter or an AC/DC powered brick transmitter. The receivers are battery-powered, wireless and can be worn on a belt.
With the Professional Wireless Video Production Systems, uncompressed video and audio are transmitted wirelessly with less than a 1 millisecond delay. The director can view video feed in nearly real time from a stationary location on the set. The videographer is free to move about to capture the desired shots.
The available systems are:
WP-1X includes the V-MHT-B battery powered brick transmitter and a receiver. This power unitized transmitter can rest on a table top, mount to camera shoes and studs or can operate as a belt pack. The V-WHT-B transmitter and V-WHR receiver are designed to use the Marshall universal battery adapter plate. This allows each system to be conveniently configured to use the same batteries that the camcorder or DSLR use.
WP-2X includes V-WHT-A stick transmitter and a receiver. The camera powered V-WHT-A "stick" transmitter connects directly to the camcorder HDMI port and can also be cabled to any convenient mounting point on your rig as needed.
Three receiver options are available: V-VMR V-Mount Battery Receiver, V-ABR Anton-Bauer Battery Receiver, and V-WHR Stand Alone WHDI Receiver. In addition, Marshall has developed a battery plate that can accommodate Canon LPE6, Nikon EL3, Sony NPF970, and Panasonic VBG6 batteries.
Each transmitter has an HDMI 1.3 interface, up to a 30-meter range and supports video resolutions up to 1080p60. The systems offer excellent through-wall performance.
Battery powered transmitters and receivers can be easily configured to operate with snap-on camera battery mounts supporting many brands.

Marshall Electronics Releases Line of 4K-Compatible Quad-Viewer Monitors
The 17”, 24” and 27” Quad-Viewers give users the convenience of a quad-viewer with superior image resolution and advanced functionality.
El Segundo, Calif. (March 28, 2014) – Marshall Electronics introduces three new monitors with 4K viewing capability: the QVW-1708 17” 1920 x 1080 Resolution Display, the QVW-2410 24" 1920x1200 Resolution Display and the QVW-2710 27” 2560x1440 Resolution Display.

The monitors are ideal for use as on-set critical evaluation monitors, confidence monitors, post production monitors for edit suites, and master control monitors for critical evaluation of program output.
The QVW-1708, QVW-2410 and QVW-2710 Quad-Viewer Monitors feature all-digital TFT-MegaPixel active matrix LCD systems. Three different quad layouts are available, and the side-by-side mode allows any two consecutive channels to be viewed on the screen at one time. In-Monitor Display allows on-screen text and tally indication, controlled locally or remotely via a variety of industry standard protocols.
Marshall Broadcast A/V Division Director of Sales Devan Cress says, “The capabilities of the QVW monitors are unmatched in the market, offering color calibrated 2k/4k quad viewers at outstanding prices. Marshall continues to innovate with the huge range of features available in the QVW displays, allowing users to accomplish more with one monitor.”
The On Screen Displays are capable of showing 16 channels of embedded 3G/HD or SDI audio, embedded time code, embedded audio presence indicator and closed caption presence indicator for 608/708 captions. Stereo audio can be monitored for the selected SDI input through a front panel headphone jack. In addition, the monitors allow field calibration via CalMAN™ 5 by SpectraCal, RS-422/485 ports with pass-through as well as the ability to upgrade software and add features in the field via USB upgrade.
