MONTREAL, November 27, 2017
— Grupo Multimedios currently manages dozens of stations across Mexico and the Southwestern U.S., and the media company plans to expand production to even more channels and locations next year. Solutions from Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, including LDX 82 Flex
cameras with extended color gamut and HDR capabilities, and XCU Elite
camera base stations, will help Multimedios create high-quality content for its existing and future channels.
"Our first priority is always creating top quality content for our viewers. Proper solutions and efficient support for those solutions are critical to that mission," said Guillermo Franco, chief technical director, Grupo Multimedios. "Not only do we have experience with the quality of Grass Valley solutions, but their new local team has proven that they are here to be a true partner for us. The LDX 82 Flex cameras are a great addition to our production envas we look to the future of Multimedios and Milenio TV."
As the definitive HD camera covering all HD standards, the LDX 82 Series offers the best sensitivity in all HD formats, thanks to Grass Valley's unique GV e-License capabilities, including 1080p and a wide color gamut, leveraging the patented Xensium-FT CMOS imager which allows for better sensitivity, higher resolution and XDR (Extended Dynamic Range) operations with a full 15 F-stops. LDX 82 Series cameras are compatible with the XCU Elite base station which features a unique patent-pending cradle. The cradle can be pre-mounted and pre-wired in the rack, making a secure mechanical and electrical connection, permitting the XCU base station to easily slide in and out whenever needed.
"While Grupo Multimedios has been a loyal long-time customer of Grass Valley and is very familiar with its industry-leading solutions, it has also been seeking a provider with a strong local presence for support as it continues to grow," said Nahuel Villegas, vice president, Caribbean and Latin America, Grass Valley. "Our value proposition with a consultative approach and more local presence in our newly expanded regional team are key differentiators to support Grupo Multimedios in its ambitious growth plans going forward."
As the company expands to new channels and new cities, the new LDX 82 Flex cameras offer the features and flexibility Grupo Multimedios requires to continue creating a wide variety of premium Spanish language programs.
