3G Triax Transmission (LDK 4400 Base Station / LDK 5418 Camera Adapter)
It's Time for You to Lead the Way

Get your hands on a true world first, with Grass Valley's 3G Transmission triax system.

It's the only one of its kind able to give you the flexibility of delivering all HD video formats: 720p, 1080i, and 1080p from the base station. Compatibility with our LDX Series™ and LDK 8000 Elite camera heads makes it even better.

Our 3G Transmission triax system is one for the future, so get ahead and make sure you stay there.

Uncompromising quality: You can run full resolution 3D—which means rock n' roll quality every time.

Reduced costs: Buy new cables? No need! Just keep using the cables you already have.

Lightening the load: Good things come in small packages. With its light weight, there's no need to flex your muscles carrying the 3G Transmission triax system around. Your mobile production truck will be lighter too, so you'll lower your carbon footprint.
