Imagina France to capture sports with Grass Valley

Imagina France, French subsidiary of Media Pro Group, has ordered six Grass Valley LDX Series software upgradable cameras, which were recently announced at IBC. The cameras have been installed as part of an upgrade to Imagina France’s outside broadcasting (OB) trucks that are dedicated to the French Premier Football league. The cameras will capture the majority of the football matches covered by Imagina France. The LDX Series – consisting of the LDX Première, LDX Elite, and LDX WorldCam cameras – is built around the in-house developed Xensium FT imager, which offers a high sensitivity in 1080p and 1080i/720p. “Increasingly, we need a camera system that will cover any kind of live event, in any environment or format – whether it be, HD or 3D, and this is why we selected Grass Valley,” said Louis Zumelzu, managing director at Imagina France. “It was also important to have a future-proof system and the LDX Series with its software upgrade capabilities enables us to increase our functionality as our imaging requirements change.” “The customer response to the LDX Series launch has been extremely positive and today’s announcement is testament to how well the cameras have been received by our customers,” said Francoise Semin, vice president for Southern Europe, Middle East and North Africa at Grass
