  • OVERVIEW

    The only camera in the world that switches between native HD and native 4K UHD

    The LDX 86N Series cameras takes the LDX 86 Series to a new level with native 4K UHD and native 3G/HD image capture. Simple GV-eLicenses combined with the ability to use standard B4 2/3-inch HD or 4K UHD lenses ensure that you always have the camera you need. So whether it's HD or 3X super slow-motion today, 3G or 6X super slow-motion tomorrow, or 4K UHD down the road, you'll be ready for whatever your productions demand.

    XDR — Extended Dynamic Range — supporting HDR with up to 15 F-stops offers a new level of viewer experience. You also get extended color gamut supporting ITU-R BT.2020.

    Optional IP outputs provide a smooth and easy migration path from SDI baseband to an IP-based infrastructure for future-proof production, including remote/at-home production.

    The award-winning Creative Grading control panel and application option provides a new alternative between traditional camera shading and a new, redefined way of controlling all the creative power inside Grass Valley cameras.

    The LDX 86N Series provide you with two parallel upgrade paths: One based on higher resolution (HD/3G/4K UHD) and one based on higher frame rates (3X/6X).
