Marshall POV 'Player Cam' For eSports
F

or Producer Tim Reis,
improving the quality of
his 'player cams' with Marshall
Electronics
CV502
Miniature
Camera, helped to bring a more
immersive, all access experience
to his broadcasts and live streams.
The first eSport broadcast Reis
worked on using the Marshall
CV502 Miniature Cameras was
for a particularly popular five vs.
five online multiplayer game that
was both broadcast and streamed
live. The championships were held in
an arena format with all 10 players
sharing a single stage. The production
wanted individual 'player cams,' in
order to get a look at the intensity
of the eSport athletes' faces as they
played. This was previously achieved
using standard webcams, which
inevitably resulted in a complicated
network of wires and conversion boxes
to make the player cams a functional
asset to the programme.
"As we prepared for the event,
it was clear that our 'player cam'
system needed an update," says Reis.
"I needed a 1080p SDI out native

camera with a small footprint and
action-cam-style field-of-view. I was
led to Marshall's CV502 POV Camera.
With the CV502, we mounted them
atop each computer monitor and they
worked incredibly well."
The Marshall CV502 camera offered
a clear solution for Reis, especially due
to its visual fidelity in an environment
with constantly shifting stage lighting
as well as its streamlined workflow
that would have been unachievable
with a standard webcam-based setup.
"We bought 15 of the CV502 POV
cameras for that show, and a lot of

major eSports
brands were paying
attention to our production that year,"
says Reis. "Now you'll see the CV502
at pretty much every major eSports
broadcast. It's becoming the industry
standard. The CV502 has an ultra-low,
0.2 lux rating, making it great for lowlight settings, which is fairly standard
for eSports competitions."
Built around a next generation
2.5-Megapixel, 1/2.86-inch sensor,
the CV502 delivers progressive

eplacing traditional satellite,
fibre and microwave technology,
LiveU's portable field units are being
deployed in South Africa's horse race
coverage to create live inserts from the
race tracks themselves, inside betting
centres, and around award ceremonies
and special events.
Heading up this trend are Tellytrack
Horseracing, Highlights and Sports
Betting Television, and Gold Circle
Horseracing and Betting - two key
players in the country's sporting world.
Tellytrack started to use LiveU for
their filler programme around the
races, following an extensive testing
period. LiveU backpack units are now
deployed in different regions around
the country, providing live crossings
and special segments.
The LiveU feeds used for TV
broadcasts are then streamed via the
same channel to its web site and social
media platforms.
Wesley Lloyd, Operations Manager
at Tellytrack, said: "LiveU gives us the

South African Horse Racing

flexibility to walk around, enabling
us to broadcast live from places we
couldn't go before. For example, we
can go and interview the jockeys in the
stables at the far end of the track by
simply sending a camera operator out
into the field with a backpack, some
batteries, a camera and a LiveU unit.

In the past, we would have had to use
complex microwave services with three
or four cameras."
Lloyd continued: "Going live from the
betting shops has also enhanced our
coverage, enabling us to connect with
our customers and make everything
more relatable - the fans can have their

Full-HD video up to 1920x1080p
at
60/59/50fps
and
interlaced 1920x1080i at
59.94/50fps.
The CV502 utilises
a full-sized BNC (3G/
HDSDI)
output
and
a threaded M12 lens
mount for a wide range
of prime and varifocal
lens options. Remote
adjustment and picture
settings commands are
delivered via common
RS485 (Visca) or OSD
menu joystick. A wide
range of picture adjustment settings
are available and adjustable from a
distance including paint (red/blue),
white balance, exposure, gain control,
pedestal (blacks), white clip, gamma
and more.
In addition to Marshall's POV
camera, Reis has also rented its MD
Series monitors and has used it as a
client monitor. "Both the player cams
and monitors from Marshall are a
great asset to have on any eSports
production," says Reis.

say and feel part of the action. We've
also used LiveU for award ceremonies
and special events in shopping centres
to get more feedback from the public,
with excellent signal levels every time."
Gold Circle has been testing the
viability of the LiveU solution since
early 2018 for both camera signal
acquisition while following the horses
and in the distribution of content to
supplement and as a substitute for SNG
(satellite newsgathering) trucks.
Sherwin Singh, TV Department
Manager / Production Director, Gold
Circle, said: "We have been impressed
with how reliable and robust LiveU
technology has proven to be on both
ends of the production cycle. The
fact that the LU600 field unit can be
used for both video acquisition and
distribution has been a key factor
in our buying decision. The unit is
very user friendly and offers a level
of redundancy without having any
external devices plugged in. It also
looks and feel solid.
"One of our camera operators will
be using a camera on a gimbal, for
example, while the LU600 unit will
provide a signal from the start that can
track the horses as they are loaded into
their starting positions," he added.
