Applications for the LDX Compact Series Application Note by Klaus Weber, Director Imaging Technology, (GVB-1-0200B-EN-AN) File size: 1.4 MB, posted Oct 24 2014 The Grass Valley LDX Compact series of advanced imaging cameras is an extension to the revolutionary LDX Series of cameras built for tight spaces, remote pan/tilt heads, Steadicam and POV applications with superior imaging, processing and performance. LDX Compact is available in three different versions which offer different format support and feature sets optimized for different applications. All versions offer a new level of business flexibility with the introduction of the GV-eLicensing system providing an easy upgrade path from any lower model of the range into any higher model. LDX Compact provides the same image performance and all of the control features of the LDX Series of high-quality broadcast system cameras in a smaller mechanical package. This implementation produces the same high level of image acquisition quality in areas and from angles that can be very space constrained.
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.
LDX C82 Compact Elite webpage (web-ldx_c82_elite.x) The LDX C82 Compact Elite is a revolutionary switchable format (1080i, 1080PsF and 720p) live production compact camera workhorse — based on the revolutionary LDX 82 Series of cameras — built for business flexibility and operational excellence, with superior imaging, processing and performance. With the LDX C82 Compact Elite, you can upgrade, when needed, to the LDX C82 Compact WorldCam adding 3G production formats for acquisition.
