LMP Lux Media Plan

From its headquarters in Wiesbaden, Germany, LMP produces what are marketed as the world's smallest true HD camera systems and a range of colour correction, video processing/multiplexing, optical conversion and fibre optics components.

The Cerberus range of mini-HD cameras is based on the HD1200 system. They are modular units combining three 2/3-inch sensors using identical processing hardware, which makes the camera heads interchangeable. The heads are: the Cerberus HD1200, which is seen as the foundation of the range and recommended for day-to-day broadcasting and basic cinematography; the CMOS version, the flagship of the line that has a global shutter and a good dynamic range for both broadcasting and special applications; and a CCD sensor, which also has a global shutter but with greater sensitivity. The core HD1200 system features signal processing algorithms and a variety of simultaneous live outputs, including RAW, HD-SDI and analogue component. Also offered are fibre connectivity to extend the distance over which the camera can operate, based on a SMPTE circuit between the head and the CCU at up to 1100 metres; an optional Drive unit to motorise focus and iris control; a 3D rig with baseline motorised pan-tilt adjustment screws; a Control unit that can run up to 99 cameras; the core CCU; and the Cerberus Lens, a 105 degree super-wide angle optical.

LMP also offers the microHD system, aimed at coverage of sport, entertainment shows and concerts, and a range of components that also features digital to analogue converters and video serialisers.
