Marshall CV568 Lights The Lamp For Harvard University Ice Hockey

As one of the oldest and most storied programs in all of college hockey, the Harvard University men's ice hockey team draws big crowds, not only in person but also via streaming on ESPN+ and on linear broadcast partner NESN (New England Sports Network).

In order to capture all of the exciting action and provide in-depth angles and perspectives, the university has come to rely on a selection of POV cameras, including the recently acquired CV568 Miniature Global Shutter Camera with Genlock from Marshall Electronics.

The university has been using Marshall cameras for a long time and continues to employ the company’s cameras whenever possible. “We started out with one Marshall camera, but the problem with getting one Marshall camera is that you immediately realize it’s not nearly enough, so you get a second one,” says Imry Halevi, associate director of athletics at Harvard. “When we received the second one, it quickly became evident that we needed four and so on. We continue to add more Marshall cameras and have been finding more ways to use them for our sports teams; they have been really great.”

Harvard recently added the new CV568 from Marshall to its inventory. As its production quality improves, the university is always looking for cameras that can match that level of sophistication. The CV568 POV camera offers an impressive 1/1.8” Global Shutter 3.2MP sensor and 25 percent larger pixel size, for ultra-fast, low latency capture even in challenging light environments. The inclusion of Genlock (tri-level signal-sync) offers quick switching between camera perspectives in fast paced action, ideal for capturing gameplay. For Harvard, the CV568 is used as a goal cam to show images of the puck as it crosses the goal line or not. According to Halevi, “We have placed the CV568 on the glass behind one of the goals in our rink for our broadcasts. It is part of our review system for the officials to verify if there was a goal or not. It’s been clearer and sharper than anything we have ever had behind the goal in the past. The difference was immediately noticeable.”
