Grass Valley has made four new additions to its LDX range of high speed cameras.

These include the LDX HiSpeed (LDX HS) and LDX Compact HiSpeed (LDX Compact HS) three times super slow-motion cameras and the LDX XtremeSpeed (LDX XS) and LDX Compact XtremeSpeed (LDX Compact XS) offering ultra slow-motion at six times normal frame rates.

All four are built around Grass Valley's proprietary Xensium-FT CMOS imagers.

The LDX HS and LDX Compact HS 3X cameras are the successors to the LDK 8300 3X super slow-motion camera and support 1080i and 720p with 150 and 179.82 triple-speed frame rates, with an additional 1X standard speed "live" output for seamless integration with standard cameras planned for future release.

The LDX HS and LDX Compact HS are software upgradable via GV-eLicenses to the LDX XS and LDX Compact XS, respectively.



The LDX XS and LDX Compact XS deliver instant time-to-air capabilities and integrate seamlessly into live workflows with 3X and 6X speeds.

The cameras deliver images in 1080i and 720p with 150 and 179.82 triple-speed frame rates and 300 and 359.64 sextuple-speed frame rates, as well as 150 and 179.82 triple-speed frame rates in 1080p, with an additional 1X standard speed "live" output for seamless integration with standard cameras planned for future release.

Sales success

Grass Valley has announced sales of its new LDX XS ultra slow motion cameras to two US OB providers.

Mobile broadcaster Lyon Video has purchased two LDX XtremeSpeed (LDX XS) 6X ultra slow-motion cameras, two XCU XtremeSpeed XF fiber transmission solutions, and a K2 Dyno Replay System.

Lyon Video's LDX XS cameras will be teamed up with the Grass Valley K2 Dyno Replay System with AnySpeed dynamic playback to give smooth playback at different speeds.

US-based company Mobile TV Group has also upgraded eight of its dual-feed mobile production trucks with 16 LDX XtremeSpeed (LDX XS) six times ultra slow-motion cameras and eight K2 Dyno Replay Systems for the delivery of live sports coverage.

Seven Fox Sports regional networks will receive these systems along with one for Root Sports Rocky Mountain.

Each mobile unit will have two ultra slow-motion cameras.

MTVG operates one of the largest HD mobile production fleets in the United States, providing trucks for roughly 4,000 live sports and entertainment events each year.
