Düsseldorf-based Triofilm TV has selected five LDX Series cameras and one LDK 8300 Live Super SloMo camera system from Grass Valley to equip its new outside broadcast (OB) van. The new truck will hit the road Spring 2013 to cover sports and entertainment events. “We really like the new LDX camera and its software-based features, which will help us to keep the cameras up to date with formats and features, no matter what the client needs,” said Uwe Beier, managing director, Triofilm TV. One of the main features of the LDX Series are three new, in-house developed, Xensium-FT CMOS imagers, which provide a variety of HD resolutions while eliminating typical CMOS artefacts, especially the ‘rolling shutter effect.’ Triofilm TV ordered the LDX Première cameras with the Grass Valley 3G Transmission system (triax) and fibre/triax twin base stations. The Grass Valley LDX Series includes the LDX Première (1080i50/60 and 720p50/60), LDX Elite (1080PsF, 1080i50/60, and 720p50/60), and LDX WorldCam (1080p50/60, 1080PsF, 1080i50/60, and 720p50/60) models. Both the LDX Première and LDX Elite models are software-upgradable to the next level within the series. Each LDX Series camera delivers uncompromised performance and full compatibility with Grass Valley's line of 3G Transmission solutions. – Jake Young www.grassvalley.com
