Advanced Imaging Camera System

Multiformat (HD/3G/4K) & Multispeed (1X/3X/6X) System Camera

Grass Valley LDX 86 is a content acquisition system, combined with outstanding image performance, excellent light sensitivity and the ability to use standard HD/4K lenses.

Advanced multiformat (HD/3G/4K UHD) or multispeed (1X/3X/6X) content acquisition LDX 86 Universe combines them all.

Including AnyLightXtreme technology for flicker-free images in speeds up to 6X operation in 1080i and 720p, plus 3X speed operation in 1080p, the LDX 86 XtremeSpeed is the perfect addition for super slow-motion applications, with an additional 1X standard-speed “live” output.

LDX 86-series is based around advanced Xensium-FT CMOS imager. This allows cameras to have highest sensitivity and image performance across different video formats. This includes extended colour gamut supporting ITU-R BT.2020 and a software upgrade to enable 15 F-stops of high dynamic range (HDR) in single-speed operation.

There are two paths to upgrade LDX 86 series:

High Frame Rate – one of the paths would be based on high frame rate HD/3G cameras

4K UHD acquisition – second path is based on single speed HD/3G/4K UHD acquisition

You can upgrade these even further to LDX86 Universe with camera providing single speed at HD/3G/4K UHD as well as 6x HD speed / 3x HD/3G speed. You are able to to this via GV-eLicense and upgrade it with a daily, weekly or perpetual license.

A single camera that meets all your operational needs. From single-speed cutting-edge HD to ultra-clean XtremeSpeed and crisp 4K. Optional HDR for single-speed operation is available via a perpetual GV-eLicense.
