LDX 100

Rolling Shutter with Titan Imager

Designed to reveal in detail the intensity and emotion behind fast-paced action and split-second decisions, LDX 100 NativeIP cameras use a new 2/3-inch Titan imager to capture Ultra High Definition (UHD) High Dynamic Range (HDR) images at 3X high speed. That’s a lot of “high” functionality in one description, but that’s what you should expect from Grass Valley as part of the new LDX 100 Series flagship camera platform.

Just as compelling as its image capture capabilities is the camera’s redefinition of signal distribution. Born a network native, the camera is a self-contained IP endpoint with up to 100 Gb/s IP network connections for audio, video, and control directly at the camera...

FEATURES

  • New camera platform designed for extension into the future
  • UHD HDR images at 3X high-speed
  • Simple, scalable multiformat image capture and distribution
  • All-in-one camera with no separate base station required thanks to NativeIP
  • Fastest time to deploy and configure
  • Extensive operator training not required
  • At-a-glance settings and diagnostics for immediate status recognition
  • Software update and reconfiguration of licenses and settings (if required) in less than 7 minutes
  • Field-tested rugged and reliable
  • Suite of inventory management features
  • Quickly align camera configuration to production requirements for superior cost management
  • Field-replaceable SFP/QSFP
  • Save time by managing camera information and licenses from the LDX Scanner app without powering up the camera

This option is only available as a perpetual option.

UHD Filmic Modes Perpetual

Enables UHD “filmic” acquisition, in broadcast frame rates (25/29.97) and cinema frame rates (23.98/24/60). (For the UHD Filmic option the UHD 50/59.4 Option, 9-0110000105-9, is required.) The UHD Filmic option is also available as a daily option in the B.O.W.L. portal at 3 points/day.

JPEG XS Video Compression Single-speed Perpetual

This high-quality low-latency video compression option creates the compressed video signal in the camera when running in NativeIP, saving external equipment. Extremely beneficial for remote productions to save significant bandwidth. Single-speed HD and UHD signals can be compressed. The JPEG XS compression option is only available as perpetual option.


Any available option can easily be created in the LDX 100 section of the B.O.W.L. web portal against the above mentioned Option Credit Points.

Creative Grading Technical Brief

The capture of high-quality camera images during live conditions can be very demanding. Whether indoors or out, the difficulties of adapting to the limitations of natural or artificial lighting and responding to rapid lighting changes are compounded by the artistic choices of a camera look, matching ambient or branded coloring, producing in multiple video formats, and of course satisfying unpredictable customer expectations — all under high-pressure time constraints.

JPEG XS Technical Brief

A Grass Valley JPEG XS solution is a true end-to-end ecosystem allowing a broadcaster to reap the full benefits of scalability, flexibility and efficiency of JPEG XS in an IP infrastructure. Broadcasters looking for a simple, standards-compliant, end-to-end solution will find that Grass Valley is the only vendor to address the complete workflow. Broadcasters who require multivendor systems will benefit from Grass Valley's adherence to standardized technologies and the fact that all Grass Valley solutions are fully NMOS compliant and are extensively tested for interoperability.
