LDX 82 Series
HDR-capable Advanced Imaging Camera Platform

The LDX 82 Series of cameras consists of four models offering varying levels of operational flexibility to match every production need, with the ability to upgrade as production and business needs change. This includes extended color gamut supporting ITU-R BT.2020.

XDR — Extended Dynamic Range — operation (HDR with full 15 F-stops or >800% of regular cameras) is available for all 50/59.94 Hz formats offering a new level of viewer experience.

  • LDX 82 Flex is our entry level model for single format 1080i or 720p acquisition, where limited artistic tweaking is required.
  • LDX 82 Première can switch between 1080i and 720p, and features the Contour Equalizer which allows for tweaking 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, and 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. LDX 82 WorldCam enables 1080p productions that are normally impossible to cover without huge investments in additional lighting or without serious degradation of the image quality. The LDX 82 WorldCam is only available as a 7-day or a perpetual GV-eLicense upgrade from any other LDX 82 Series camera, with single or multiple licenses.

For confined spaces, compact versions of the LDX 82 Première, LDX 82 Elite and LDX 82 WorldCam are available. Please see the LDX C82 Series Compact Cameras webpage for more information.

LDX 2017 Cameras Catalog Datasheet

LDX 86N Series (Fully Native HD/3G/4K/High-Speed with optional HDR)

The LDX 86N Series delivers native HD, 3G and 4K images for the highest possible resolution and image clarity. The LDX 86N Series lets you grow into the formats you need tomorrow while buying only what you need today. With a daily, weekly or perpetual GV-eLicense upgrade path, you can move from any single speed HD/3G format to 4K — from 3X HD speed to 6X HD/3X 3G speed — and even a camera that can switch between higher resolution and higher frame rate. Optional high dynamic range (HDR) for single-speed operation is available via a perpetual GV-eLicense.

LDX 86 Series High Sensitive (HD/3G/4K/High-Speed with optional HDR)

The LDX 86 Series of cameras offer the perfect solution for all format requirements, especially when light sensitivity is of prime importance. Acquiring in native 1920x1080, the LDX 86 4K and LDX 86 Universe cameras use a unique closed-system process for 3840x2160 UHD where all of the processing takes place within the camera system. This delivers a 4K image with the highest light sensitivity available in any system camera, with images almost indistinguishable from native 4K acquisition in most applications.

LDX C86 Compact HiSpeed 3X HD/3G) and LDX C86 Compact XtremeSpeed 6X (HD) Cameras

XThe world's first self-contained high-speed cameras in a small form factor for space-constrained applications. As an extension to the LDX range of cameras, they produce the same level of quality from angles and in areas where high-speed cameras with a compact form factor are required.

LDX 82 Series (HD/3G with optional HDR)

A unique line of advanced imaging cameras built around Xensium-FT CMOS imagers. These cameras have the highest sensitivity and image performance across different video formats, while offering a new level of business flexibility by using one hardware platform with a flexible GV-eLicense software upgrade implementation.

With the addition of BT.2020 wide color gamut support and optional HDR support, these cameras provide an outstanding solution for all HD/3G applications.

LDX C80 Compact Series (HD/3G)

An extension to the LDX Series of cameras with an identical image performance and a comparable feature set but in a smaller mechanical package. They are the perfect companions to the LDX Series cameras and bring a new level of image performance and business flexibility for all applications where cameras with a compact form factor are required.
