The new cameras will be available to clients in Europe and the US, they deliver native 4K UHD and 3G/HD image capture, while optional IP outputs provide ES Broadcast’s clients with a migration path from SDI to IP.
Ben Murphy, managing director, ES Broadcast commented: “This is the latest evolution of our longstanding partnership with Grass Valley – we have a strong working relationship with them and real confidence in the quality of their solutions. The LDX 86N is one of the most advanced cameras on the market. We already have a significant fleet of UHD cameras, and this is our next phase of development.”
Grass Valley’s president, Tim Shoulders, added, “A commitment of this scale simply cannot be made without strong collaboration between our customer and us. ES Broadcast’s clearly defined needs were the catalyst and we used an “all hands on deck” approach to ensure we were able to meet them. It’s gratifying to see this commitment recognised by our customer and we’re excited once again to support ES Broadcast as they continue to thrive.”
