While CCD technology was the best choice for imagers in broadcast applications for many years, the latest generation of CMOS imagers now offers a range of advantages over CCD. This includes better sensitivity in progressive video modes today, and the potential for higher resolution, extended dynamic range and higher frame rates in the future. CMOS is setting the new standard for high-end broadcast applications.

Xensium-FT Imagers, Third-Generation Transmission Solutions,
and LDX Series Camera Systems
With ever-increasing momentum, image acquisition for broadcast must adapt to new requirements for supporting signal formats. These include having to support live event progressive formats, increasing number of cameras, and increasing distances between cameras and control points.
Delivering exceptional image acquisition solutions, Grass Valley offers Xensium-FT imagers with the only lossless 1080p imaging that maintains full sensitivity. Grass Valley 3G Transmission systems are the most flexible and future-proof transmission solutions available that also offer direct integration with third-party long distance transmission systems.
