Euro Media Group (EMG) has announced it has selected Grass Valley's 4K UHD RF cameras for premiere sport and live event coverage.
EMG is deploying the lightweight LDX 864K HDR RF camera heads to optimise its existing RF wireless offering for 4K UHD. The cameras will form part of EMG’s upgraded, RF high-speed wireless solution.
Ronald Meyvisch, chief technology officer, EMG, commented: “We’ve developed unique wireless solutions to provide our clients with the best coverage of their projects, and we always aim to deliver the highest frame rate possible with the highest quality imagery. To complement our UHD wireless technology, we were looking for a lightweight, robust and native 4K HDR RF camera.
"The new LDX 864K RF camera head was the perfect solution for what we needed. With no compromise on image quality, we have the agility we need to successfully operate in an RF broadcast environment. Grass Valley has consistently worked hard to address today’s market challenges head on, making them the perfect technology partner for us.”
“Sports fans want to feel as close to live action as they can regardless of where they are. As such, broadcasters and content providers face constant pressure to deliver more angles, better quality images and more immersive viewing experiences,” added Tim Banks, vice president of sales, EMEA, Grass Valley. “In turn, broadcast facilities and service providers have to ensure their solutions deliver the best possible results.”
