Studio Berlin has bought 41 LDX cameras from Grass Valley, plus six K-Frame Video Production Center switchers capable of producing in Ultra HD. The equipment will be used in both its new OB trucks (the first of which is on show in the outdoor exhibits – O.E02) and studios.
The camera purchase is part of a three-year contract with Grass Valley, and Studio Berlin is planning to substitute a total of 70 LDK cameras with the new LDX models within that period.
“We can now provide a native 1080p or 4K HDR acquisition in both SMPTE 2084 (PQ) and Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) formats. And, thanks to Grass Valley’s GV-eLicensing model, we are now able to provide up to 23 XtremeSpeed (6x super slow motion) cameras if needed,” said Matthias Alexandru, Studio Berlin’s technical director.
