CHALLENGE: Build a new news production studio that would provide a better on-air product in HD, as well as ease of use.
SOLUTION: • Karrera 3 M/E switcher with 3 M/E panel • 6x RS-LDX Elite C80 LDX Compact cameras with integrated robotic heads and Canon broadcast lenses • 6x Floor-mounted Telemetrics EP6 elevating pedestals (5 dolly-based) • Telemetrics Studio Control System with touchscreen • 2x Telemetrics Remote Control Panel controller systems • 6x 17-inch CueScript teleprompters, with hood • 6x 22-inch CueScript prompter talent monitors mounted using Telemetrics confidence monitor mounts
RS-LDX: Integrated Robotic Camera Systems Datasheet (GVB-2-0175A-EN-DS) File size: 1.1 MB, posted Nov 05 2019 RS-LDX integrated robotic camera solutions are fully integrated, turnkey camera systems based on the Grass Valley LDX Compact series cameras, ideal for studio, newsroom or live production applications.
RS-LDX systems are based on the LDX Compact cameras, which utilize Grass Valley's in-house designed Xensium-FT CMOS imager, providing pristine images in a variety of HD resolutions. With the TrueTexture feature, the RS-LDX camera preserves texture throughout all processing parameters. The cameras also offer an advanced image processing improvement for enhanced colorimetry, color-matching, and picture performance.
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.
The 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.
This dramatically impacts broadcast media producers and distributors as workflows that were once facility-centric are now expected to seamlessly address and integrate with "Software-as-a-Service" (SaaS) or "Platform-as-a-Service" (PaaS) online cloud-based solutions. Systems for transcoding, targeted advertising, ad decisioning, rights management, social media, content management and online video all need to be considered for content delivery.
There are significant challenges facing broadcasters as they drive
both local and network facilities to maximize efficiencies and drive
throughput to address the demands of digital media.
