LDX C86 Compact HiSpeed

Small Footprint 3X/1X Camera

The LDX C86 Compact HiSpeed (HS) 3X/1X camera provides identical performance to the LDX 86 HiSpeed (except for AnyLightXtreme) in a small package. It is software upgradable via GV-eLicenses to the LDX C86 Compact XtremeSpeed (XS) camera for 6X/3X/1X functionality.


  • Specifically designed for high-quality high frame rate acquisition where space is at a premium, including robotic and PTZ locations
  • The LDX C86 Compact HiSpeed for 3X speed HD applications is the first 3X super slow-mo speed camera system to offer an upgrade path to a 6X super slow-motion camera system via GV-eLicenses
  • Offer a live 1X standard-speed output in addition to the high-speed output
  • Offer the highest sensitivity and image performance across all of the different acquisition speeds

LDX Series: 2020 Cameras, Transmission and Accessories Catalog/Datasheet

LDX 86 Series High Sensitive (HD/3G/4K/High-Speed with optional HDR)

The LDX 86 Series of cameras offer the perfect solution for all format requirements, especially when light sensitivity is of prime importance. Acquiring in native 1920x1080, the LDX 86 4K and LDX 86 Universe cameras use a unique closed-system process for 3840x2160 UHD where all of the processing takes place within the camera system. This delivers a 4K image with the highest light sensitivity available in any system camera, with images almost indistinguishable from native 4K acquisition in most applications.
