MONTREAL, March 31, 2017
— Through long partnerships with many different types of customers, Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, knows that every production facility has unique needs. That's why the LDX 82 Series
includes four upgradable camera models, offering varying levels of operational flexibility to match every production need. As the definitive HD camera covering all HD standards, each model of the LDX 82 offers the best sensitivity in all HD formats, including 1080p, a wide color gamut and Grass Valley's XDR (Extended Dynamic Range) operations with a full 15 F-stops.
"The LDX 82 Series of cameras is completely unique in its native HDR capabilities, ultimate transmission flexibility, IP transition abilities and overall flexibility," said Neerav Shah, senior vice president of strategic marketing, Grass Valley. "Whether an operation requires single format HD or full 1080p support, SDR or HDR, each camera in the series provides the operational and business flexibility needed for today's fast-paced broadcast world."
The four LDX 82 camera models are designed to suit a broad range of production needs:
- LDX 82 Flex is the entry-level model for single format 1080i or 720p acquisition, where minimal artistic modification is required.
- LDX 82 Première can switch between 1080i and 720p, and features the Contour Equalizer which allows for alterations to the crispness in the shadows, mid-tones and highlights independently.
- LDX 82 Elite is the ultimate workhorse for live HD production—from live sports to scripted productions. LDX 82 Elite can switch between 1080i, 720p and 1080PsF. It also features PowerCurves for shooting under challenging conditions and Color Protect to help correct lighting issues.
- LDX 82 WorldCam is the ideal solution for any production, under any condition, incorporating all the features of the LDX 82 Elite plus 1080p. It enables 1080p productions that used to be impossible to cover without huge investments in additional lighting or major compromise to image quality. The LDX 82 WorldCam is available as a 7-day or a perpetual GV-eLicense upgrade from any other LDX 82 Series camera, with single or multiple licenses.
Regardless of the model, the LDX 82 is Grass Valley's best HD-only camera. Each LDX 82 camera model leverages the patented Xensium-FT CMOS imager which allows for better sensitivity, higher resolution and extended dynamic range.
Grass Valley is demonstrating the features of the LDX 82 Series cameras at NAB in booth SL106.
