HD/3G/4K

  • The LDX 86 Series is the first camera family to have both a spatial and temporal upgrade path, culminating in the LDX 86 Universe for switchable 1X/3X/6X HD, 1X/3X 3G and 1X 4K
  • The LDX 86 WorldCam lets you buy HD/3G acquisition today, and upgrade to 4K and high-speed acquisition when you need to, either for 7-days or with a perpetual license
  • The LDX 86 4K and LDX 86 Universe are specifically designed for live broadcast UHD/4K, especially sports productions, where the use of traditional B4 mount HD lenses instead of PL lenses enhances the producer’s and director’s ability to tell compelling and engaging stories, without any loss of sensitivity
  • The LDX 86 4K and LDK 86 Universe camera systems offers the highest sensitivity and dynamic range performance of all currently available 4K cameras  
  • The LDX 86 Series cameras are the first cameras offering an upgrade to true 15 F-stop HDR operation for live applications
  • The LDX 86 Series now delivers wide color gamut supporting the ITU-R BT.2020 standard 
  • The full power of 15 F-stops of dynamic range is available from the Xensium-FT imagers in all single speed formats with a perpetual HDR GV-eLicense. This makes the LDX 86 Series the first HDR acquisition solution available for even the most challenging live applications
  • LDX 86 4K and LDX 86 Universe cameras are fully integrated with all the LDX 80 Series, LDX 82 Series and LDX 86 Series of cameras, so they share the same camera accessories and use the same camera control system, including full support with the C2IP for the best possible integration into external control systems
  • Unique cradle connectivity to support dockable XCU (eXchangeable control unit)
  • Built-in memory in XCU cradle stores settings
  • Standard HD outputs for monitoring or any full performance live usage
  • Extensive (analog/digital) audio connectivity
  • Embedded audio  
  • Compact (2 RU), robust base station

High-Speed/HD/3G/4K

  • The LDX 86 HiSpeed is the newest generation camera for 3X speed applications with improved performance. It is also the first 3X speed camera system to offer an upgrade path to a 6X super slow-motion and 4K camera system via GV-eLicenses
  • The LDX 86 XtremeSpeed 6X camera system sets a new standard for super slow-motion image acquisition by introducing a workflow with instant time-to-air without a cumbersome double-action memory buffer in the camera — so that not a single moment of the action will be missed or lost
  • All high-speed cameras offer a live 1X standard-speed output in addition to the high-speed output
  • All high-speed cameras offer the highest sensitivity and image performance across all of the different acquisition speeds, and the unique AnyLightXtreme flicker reduction system assure that no more irritating light flickering occurs in the replays
  • The LDX 86 Series now delivers an extended color gamut supporting the ITU-R BT.2020 standard 
  • Grass Valley high-speed cameras are fully integrated with all the LDX 80 Series, LDX 82 Series and LDX 86 Series of cameras, so they share the same camera accessories and use the same camera control system, including full support with the C2IP for the best possible integration into external control systems
  • Unique cradle connectivity to support dockable XCU (eXchangeable control unit)
  • Built-in memory in XCU cradle stores settings
  • Standard HD outputs for monitoring or any full performance live usage
  • Extensive (analog/digital) audio connectivity

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.
