The Grass Valley LDX 100 is a native IP camera platform designed specifically for live sports production thanks to its 3x UHD high-speed capabilities.
The addition of 50 units of the Grass Valley LDX 100 in late 2020 marked the latest step in ES Broadcast Hire’s goal of helping clients to pioneer the latest technological innovations including UHD, HDR, IP workflows and remote production. It further expands what is already one of the world’s largest inventories of UHD broadcast cameras.
Grass Valley’s newly designed 2/3″ Titan UHD/HDR imager helps the LDX 100 to reveal all the details in fast-paced sports scenarios. The sensor provides superior resolution and colour reproduction, while its HDR capabilities maintain all the high-contrast detail in the image.
Grass Valley LDX 100 delivers simplified logistics with no need for camera base stations
This camera has been designed to be network-native: it is a self-contained IP endpoint with bandwidth of up to 100Gb/s to distribute IP connections for audio, video, and camera control. Thanks to this solution LDX 100 enables the distribution of camera sources whenever they are needed on the network. All of that without any delays which are inherent in sending signals to a separate control hub – since the camera doesn’t rely on a separate CCU.
True remote production integration
With no requirement for SDI interconnectivity, the LDX 100 delivers vast distribution flexibility for remote production workflows. Bandwidth requirements are kept in check because only the necessary signals are transmitted. And with separate teams able to have immediate discrete access to the camera sources regardless of where they are situated, collaborative workflows can be made more efficient.
