When Things Get Tight—Get Compact
The LDX Compact™ series of software upgradable cameras is an extension to the revolutionary LDX Series™ of cameras—built for tight spaces, remote pan/tilt heads, and POV applications—with superior imaging, processing, and performance.
Performance Matters: LDX Compact provides the same image performance and all of the control features of the LDX Series of high-quality broadcast system camera in a smaller mechanical package. This produces the same level of quality in areas and from angles that can be very space constrained.
Smaller Is Better (when you need it to be): In addition to establishing a new standard for compact image acquisition, the design of the LDX Compact series focuses strongly on the specific requirements for cameras with a smaller form factor. All of the typical interfaces which are required are available directly on the camera head. Additionally, LDX Compact series offers several new interfaces which include a USB connection for the management of GV-eLicenses, firmware upgrades, and scene file storage. The camera also offers an HDMI interface for connecting any HD display with an HDMI or DVI interface to be used as a camera viewfinder or monitoring display.
It's All About the Buck, Pound, and Euro (and other currencies, too): The LDX Compact series offers the flexibility to adjust capital expenses and operating expenses to match a variety of business goals and factors. LDX Compact is about more than just pretty pictures: LDX Compact is built to face the realities of live production and broadcast—today and tomorrow—with the unique LDX Series GV-eLicense program. Now users now have the ultimate flexibility in format support and feature set availability. With GV-eLicense, LDX Series users have the choice of upgrading their cameras in two different ways. A perpetual upgrade license provides an upgrade from any lower model of the range to the next higher model of the range. With a 7-day term upgrade license, the same flexibility is available, but for a lower cost. Multiple licenses may be purchased to upgrade cameras by more than one level (e.g., LDX Compact Première™ to LDX Compact WorldCam™) or to extend 7-day term upgrade licenses.
