Applications for the LDX Compact Series Application Note by Klaus Weber, Director Imaging Technology, (GVB-1-0200B-EN-AN) File size: 1.4 MB, posted Oct 24 2014 The Grass Valley LDX Compact series of advanced imaging cameras is an extension to the revolutionary LDX Series of cameras built for tight spaces, remote pan/tilt heads, Steadicam and POV applications with superior imaging, processing and performance. LDX Compact is available in three different versions which offer different format support and feature sets optimized for different applications. All versions offer a new level of business flexibility with the introduction of the GV-eLicensing system providing an easy upgrade path from any lower model of the range into any higher model. LDX Compact provides the same image performance and all of the control features of the LDX Series of high-quality broadcast system cameras in a smaller mechanical package. This implementation produces the same high level of image acquisition quality in areas and from angles that can be very space constrained.
A look at the features of the LDX Series: posted Jan 07 2014A look at the features of the LDX Series, LDX Compact series, XCU camera control unit, transmission, and accessories.

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.
