Mobile TV Group Flexes IP Capability with Grass Valley Solutions Case Study (GVB-2-0746A-EN-CS_MTVG) File size: 908.7 KB, posted Aug 19 2019 A long-time customer, MTVG uses Grass Valley production switchers and over 300 cameras across its fleet. "We value the relationship we have built with Grass Valley over the years; we take a very collaborative approach with the Grass Valley team who are very open to our input as we strive to give our clients what they need today and address their changing requirements." Said Garvin. "We have also worked closely with them in the past in areas such as super slow-motion cameras."
45 FLEX is equipped to support 11 Grass Valley cameras: four LDX 86 Universe super slow-motion HD/3G fiber cameras with IP XCU base stations, LDX 82 Première 720p/1080i fiber cameras with IP XCU base stations, and three LDX 82 Première 720p/1080i triax cameras with twin XCU base stations. It also houses Grass Valley's Kayenne K-Frame X multiformat IP production switcher.
The LDX 86N Series delivers native HD, 3G and 4K images for the highest possible resolution and image clarity. The LDX 86N Series lets you grow into the formats you need tomorrow while buying only what you need today. With a daily, weekly or perpetual GV-eLicense upgrade path, you can move from any single speed HD/3G format to 4K from 3X HD speed to 6X HD/3X 3G speed and even a camera that can switch between higher resolution and higher frame rate. Optional high dynamic range (HDR) for single-speed operation is available via a perpetual GV-eLicense.
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.
The world's first self-contained high-speed cameras in a small form factor for space-constrained applications. As an extension to the LDX range of cameras, they produce the same level of quality from angles and in areas where high-speed cameras with a compact form factor are required.
LDX 82 Series (HD/3G with optional HDR)
A unique line of advanced imaging cameras built around Xensium-FT CMOS imagers. These cameras have the highest sensitivity and image performance across different video formats, while offering a new level of business flexibility by using one hardware platform with a flexible GV-eLicense software upgrade implementation.
With the addition of BT.2020 wide color gamut support and optional HDR support, these cameras provide an outstanding solution for all HD/3G applications.
LDX C80 Compact Series (HD/3G)
An extension to the LDX Series of cameras with an identical image performance and a comparable feature set but in a smaller mechanical package. They are the perfect companions to the LDX Series cameras and bring a new level of image performance and business flexibility for all applications where cameras with a compact form factor are required.
Multi-Truck Replay Product Spotlight (GVB-1-0528B-EN-PS) File size: 1.3 MB, posted Mar 05 2019 Sharing LDX 86 XtremeSpeed cameras between two mobile production
trucks for replay creation with independent K2 Dyno Replay Systems
By using a solid-state drive (SSD) server in the main truck, a hard disk drive (HDD) server in the second truck and a 1 GigE network between trucks, it is possible to share the recorded high-speed output of two LDX 86 XtremeSpeed 6X super slow-motion (SSM) cameras between BOTH mobile production trucks so that slowmotion operators in each truck can create and share their own SSM replays and playlists.
With ever-increasing momentum, image acquisition for broadcast must adapt to new requirements for supporting signal formats. These include having to support live event progressive formats, increasing number of cameras, and increasing distances between cameras and control points.
Delivering exceptional image acquisition solutions, Grass Valley offers Xensium-FT imagers with the only lossless 1080p imaging that maintains full sensitivity. Grass Valley 3G Transmission systems are the most flexible and future-proof transmission solutions available that also offer direct integration with third-party long distance transmission systems.
LDX Series Cameras with Xensium-FT Imagers: A Superior Replacement for CCD Technology Whitepaper by Klaus Weber, Director of Product Marketing, Cameras, (GVB-1-0164A-EN-WP) File size: 1.1 MB, posted Oct 29 2014 While CCD technology was the best choice for imagers in broadcast applications for many years, the latest generation of CMOS imagers now offers a range of advantages over CCD. This includes better sensitivity in progressive video modes today, and the potential for higher resolution, extended dynamic range and higher frame rates in the future. CMOS is setting the new standard for high-end broadcast applications.
