Germany-based production house MCS Thüringen has acquired seven LDX Premiere series cameras from Grass Valley, to capture superior image resolution for its variety of productions. The cameras are being used in MCS Thüringen’s two in-house studios, where the company creates television programming, film production and advertising campaigns for German and European clients.
“With the broad portfolio of content we produce, we needed top-notch cameras that were flexible, fostered creativity, and didn’t exceed our budget,” said Ralf Bundrock at MCS Thüringen. “Our studios are filled with state-of-the-art equipment and the LDX Premiere cameras fit right in with our needs, especially in terms of picture quality as it delivers stunning 1080i/720p images.”
With the LDX Premiere, Grass Valley aims to offer high performance in an economical dual format HD camera. The LDX Premiere is also software-upgradeable as with the entire LDX range. With the GV-eLicense programme, customers can improve their camera’s capabilities to the next level of functionality for just seven days or indefinitely as required.
“With the success of the LDX Series in the region, it’s exciting for us to be able to announce another LDX win in Germany with MCS Thüringen,” commented Said Bacho, senior vice president, EMEA, Grass Valley. “With such a varying body of work, it was important for MCS to have versatile camera systems in place that reflect their impressive operations. As with our entire LDX line, we created the Premiere with flexibility and versatility in mind for a wide range of applications. MCS needed a high end and cost-effective solution to support the variety of work it produces, and the LDX Premiere, especially with its licensing model, is the perfect fit.”
