LDX 82 Elite

HDR-capable Advanced Imaging Camera Platform

LDX 82 Elite is the ultimate workhorse for live HD production — from live sports to scripted productions. LDX 82 Elite can switch between 1080i, 720p and 1080PsF, and features PowerCurves for shooting under challenging conditions, and Color Protect to help correct lighting issues. This includes extended color gamut supporting ITU-R BT.2020. With the LDX 82 Elite, you can upgrade, when needed, to the LDX 82 WorldCam adding 3G production formats for acquisition. XDR — Extended Dynamic Range — operation (HDR with full 15 F-stops or >800% of regular cameras) is available for all 50/59.94 Hz formats offering a new level of viewer experience.
