Italian Production Company Improves Image With Grass Valley Cameras

Soul Movie, a production and post-production house in Rome, Italy, has equipped two of its OB vans with new Grass Valley cameras for live events, concerts and various sporting events.

Working with system integrator Professional Show, the company selected the Grass Valley LDX 86N WorldCam cameras and complementary XCU Universe XF base stations.

Francesco de Siena, CEO, Soul Movie said they chose the LDX 86N WorldCam cameras because they are software upgradeable, allowing its crews to use all of its LDX 86N Series cameras at the same time in XtremeSpeed operation (6X super slow motion) when required.

To capture high-quality 4K images the LDX C86N relies on three native UHD 2/3” imagers and utilizes DPMUltra(an enhancement to Grass Valley’s Dynamic Pixel Management) to manage the acquisition format. When it’s time to combine the footage into a cohesive program, the LDX C86NSeries is fully compatible with the LDX 86 and LDX 86NSeries cameras to match perfectly in color reproduction and wide-gamut acquisition. In addition, the “cradle” concept of the XCU allows for easy moving of the cameras between different OB vans for unlimited flexibility.
