LDX C86 Compact XtremeSpeed
Small Footprint 6X/3X/1X Camera

The LDX C86 Compact XtremeSpeed (XS) 6X/3X/1X camera offers a lot of firsts: the first compact 6X super slow-motion camera, the first to deliver instant time-to-air with no internal camera storage requirement and the first super slow-motion camera to integrate seamlessly into live workflows with higher than 3X speeds. The LDX C86 XtremeSpeed delivers 6X operation in 1080i and 720p, 3X speed operation in 1080p, plus an additional 1X standard-speed "live" output. For confined spaces, the LDX C86 Compact XtremeSpeed camera provides identical performance to the LDX 86 XtremeSpeed (except for AnyLightXtreme) in a small package.

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.
