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.
Image acquisition for live broadcast applications faces many challenges in a multiformat landscape. The increase in spatial resolution required by 4K UHD, in combination with the additional requirements of UHD standards, including a potential increase in frame rate and high dynamic range with good sensitivity and S/N ratio will require some compromises and design decisions on the part of manufacturers, and camera selection on the part of camera users.
Some of these new requirements, especially increased resolution, have a negative impact on some important image parameters, such as sensitivity, noise performance and dynamic range. Multiple flexible solutions can address these challenges, including native format switching. Grass Valley's industry-leading LDX 86 Series cameras provide solutions for all these challenges and uniquely provide comprehensive upgrade/downgrade paths that present flexibility that's unmatched in the industry. This background document will explain the latest developments in imaging technology and outline Grass Valley's latest solutions to these live broadcasting challenges.
LDX 86N WorldCam webpage (web-ldx_86n_worldcam.x) The LDX 86N WorldCam gives you traditional native HD/3G acquisition, as well as the ability to upgrade directly to LDX 86N native 4K functionality (3840x2160p50/59.94) as well as directly to 3X HD (LDX 86N HiSpeed) or 6X HD/3X 3G (LDX 86N XtremeSpeed), and then to all LDX 86N Series formats (LDX 86N Universe). All format upgrades are available on a 1-day, 7-day or perpetual basis. You also get extended color gamut supporting ITU-R BT.2020.
