XCU Enterprise UXF Camera Base Station

HD/3G/4K UHD Single-Speed Baseband/IP Base Station

The XCU Enterprise UXF base stations support all single speed formats supported by all of the LDX Series cameras with baseband and IP connectivity. It is a member of the XCU range of camera base stations and share the same unique cradle concept with the other XCUs that are available for the LDX 80 Series of cameras. The future-ready cradle concept supports the broadcast requirements of today and tomorrow. With high bandwidth IP networks becoming more and more available for live productions, the new XF Transmission Direct IP Interface eLicense enables a direct IP interface of the complete transmission protocol between the cameras and...
