LDX 135

Global Shutter with Xenios Imager

Offering a lower entry price point within the LDX 100 series, the LDX 135 stretches production resources farther with features similar to the LDX 150, such as faster turnaround and configuration times, à la carte daily options, and UHD with HDR. The LDX 135 does not include 3X high-speed that is possible with the LDX 150. The high sensitivity (F11@2000 lux vs F9@2000 lux) of the LDX 135 with its three new Xenios imagers means that you get

  • Wider dynamic range in HDR mode
  • Improved signal-to-noise ratio by reducing gain for cleaner images
  • Greater depth of field by allowing smaller lens apertures for easier and better focusing
  • JPEG XS high-quality...

FEATURES

  • New camera platform designed for extension into the future
  • Simple, scalable multiformat image capture and distribution
  • All-in-one camera with no separate base station required thanks to NativeIP
  • Up to five JPEG XS encoders may be enabled, reducing bandwidth requirements by 20 times
  • Backward compatible for SDI connectivity using XCU base station
  • Fastest time to deploy and configure
  • Extensive operator training not required
  • At-a-glance settings and diagnostics for immediate status recognition
  • 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

GPS Option Perpetual

This unique feature indicates the exact location of the camera as soon as it is connected to the network and Creative Grading system – both graphically on a map and with the coordinates displayed in the Creative Grading App. Ideal for large scale and remote operations. 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 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.
