Triofilm TV Upgrades Grass Valley Live Broadcast Solutions For Its OB Van

Düsseldorf, Germany-based Triofilm TV has upgraded its outside broadcast (OB) with new Grass Valley cameras, a switcher and a new router to handle a variety of live sporting events.

Triofilm TV, a long-time Grass Valley customer with 22 LDX series cameras in its arsenal, has added three new LDX 86 HiSpeed cameras, a Karrera K-Frame switcher, a large 3 M/E and a compact 2 M/E Karrera Control Surface and an NVision 8280 Hybrid 3G router.

The LDX 86 HS 3X/1X camera offers up to 3X speed operation in HD (1080i and 720p) with an additional 1X standard-speed “live” output for seamless integration with standard-speed cameras used in a production. 
Users also get extended color gamut supporting ITU-R BT.2020 and an optional software upgrade to enable 15 F-stops of high dynamic range (HDR) in single-speed operation.

The LDX 86 HS is upgradable via GV-eLicenses on a 1-day, 7-day or perpetual basis to the next level of functionality within the camera range. 
 


Uwe Beier, managing director of Triofilm TV, said that if required, the GV-eLicenses allow them to use all of their LDX 86 Series cameras at the same time in XtremeSpeed operation (6X super-slow motion).

Triofilm also selected the Karrera K-Frame for its HD production truck, with up to 80x48 I/Os in a 6 RU frame. The Karrera gives Triofilm the ability to share resources from a single frame across two different panels—the 3 M/E in the main control room and the 2 M/E in the secondary or sub-control room—which is ideal when working on two different projects.
