The LDX Series™ of advanced imaging cameras enhances your creativity and gives you amazing control. With four models to choose from including Flex, Première, Elite, and WorldCam, they offer varying levels of operational flexibility to match every production need.
And with our unique GV-eLicense program, our cameras offer the flexibility to grow as your business needs change.
The LDX Flex™ is our entry level model, for single format 1080i or 720p acquisition. This model feels at home in environments that are fully controlled, like news studios, where limited artistic tweaking is required. The LDX Flex is also a great tool for virtual studios, where true color-reproduction and wide color ranges are very important.
The LDX Première™ feels at home in a variety of applications, including live production. This model can switch between 1080i and 720p acquisition on the spot. The Première features the Contour Equalizer which allows for tweaking the crispness in the shadows, mid-tones, and highlights independently, and the crystal-clear optical effect-filters to create the right atmosphere for the scene in its full dynamic range.
The LDX Elite™ is the ultimate workhorse for live HD production—from live sports to scripted productions. This model can also switch between 1080i, 720p, and 1080PsF acquisition on the spot. The LDX Elite features PowerCurves for shooting under challenging conditions, and Color Protect that helps to correct lighting issues.
LDX WorldCam™ is the pinnacle of the broadcast chain and the ideal solution for any production, under any condition. This model incorporates all the features of the Elite plus 1080p. It enables 1080p productions that are normally impossible to cover without huge investments in additional lighting or without serious degradation of the image quality. For the LDX WorldCam, it's as simple as the flick of a switch.
