LDX 90 & LDX C90 Series Technical Specifications (DS-PUB-3-1021B-EN) File size: 1.7 MB, posted Dec 16 2021 Adapting to new circumstances is a constant in live production. In addition to the pace of the action in the event, the camera must rapidly adjust to shooting positions, lighting and weather. Even more critical is the ability quickly reconfigure production formats, picture resolution and frame rates with a minimum of effort and downtime. Designed specifically for these demanding conditions, Grass Valley LDX cameras set the standard for combining picture quality with ease of use in capturing live images.

Creative Grading Technical Brief (TB-PUB-3-0810A-EN) File size: 1.4 MB, posted Apr 13 2022 The capture of high-quality camera images during live conditions can be very demanding. Whether indoors or out, the difficulties of adapting to the limitations of natural or artificial lighting and responding to rapid lighting changes are compounded by the artistic choices of a camera look, matching ambient or branded coloring, producing in multiple video formats, and of course satisfying unpredictable customer expectations all under high-pressure time constraints.
Using Creative Grading for Distributed Production Technical Brief (TB-PUB-2-0952A-EN) File size: 1.2 MB, posted Oct 19 2020 Camera shaders are a critical part of maintaining picture quality during the constantly changing conditions of a multicamera live production. In today's socially distanced environments, media production teams would like to reduce the number of crew members on-site by allowing the camera shaders to work off-site. But they still must maintain the responsive reaction times needed for live shading.
Comparing High-Speed Camera Solutions for Live Broadcast Applications Whitepaper (WP-PUB-3-1020A-EN) File size: 387.2 KB, posted Dec 09 2021 Slow-motion and super slow-motion replays have been an important part of media storytelling in nearly all live sports productions for many years. But, more and more often they are also used in other entertainment productions such as game or dance shows to deliver a new level of emotional connection to these types of studio productions.
There are several options for the speed of the image acquisition and replay. Every option has its own strengths and limitations. What are the typical requirements for the different applications? Why are there only a very limited number of the possible scenarios that have been widely accepted?
This whitepaper explains all these points in more detail with guidance for choosing the right technology for the application.
The Impact of New Production Formats and Workflows to Camera Control Whitepaper by Klaus Weber, Principal, Camera Solutions and Technology, (GVB-2-0608A-EN-WP) File size: 1.2 MB, posted May 28 2019 Today, camera control solutions in live broadcast productions are mainly used to adapt the camera's capabilities to a given light situation, and to achieve a certain "look" and style of the images. New formats such as high dynamic range (HDR), wide color gamut (WCG), 4K UHD, IP and simultaneous HDR/SDR or HD/4K UHD operations, require more agile controls. Now with more features to be controlled, managing the various settings becomes very difficult. A broadcast camera control solution that leverages the developments from grading applications used in post-production and other widely used image control applications, such as Photoshop, will benefit from new ideas and the new talents grown with these solutions. It's time for a change! This paper will explain the background of today's camera control solutions and show, based on extensive customer feedback, how it should develop in the future.
