New LDX C82 & LDX C86N Compact High Frame Rate Cameras From Grass Valley
Grass Valley releases two new series of compact cameras. The LDX C82 series for HD production and the LDX C86N Series, a fully self-contained companion to Grass Valley’s native 4K system cameras, to meet a wide range of broadcasters’ camera needs. The new series join the recently upgraded LDX C86 Series to provide a fully comprehensive compact solution to the challenges broadcasters face in HD, 3G, 4K and beyond.
Grass Valley is to debut new compact cameras at NAB Show 2017, that will meet the needs of sports producers and more for cameras that can capture important, engaging shots from places where camera operators cannot or should not go.
“Now more than ever, broadcasters have to be prepared to capture the action wherever it takes place and provide better angles that really make the viewer feel the action.” said Neerav Shah, senior vice president of strategic marketing, Grass Valley. “The LDX C82, C86N and C86 Series cameras provide the flexibility and key features required for the highest quality image acquisition in a format that addresses the need for image capture where it’s impractical, or impossible, to have a camera operator.”

LDX C82 Compact HD Cameras
The LDX C82 Series, a fully self-contained companion to Grass Valley’s new LDX 82 Series HD/3G system cameras, is available in two versions: Premiere, for switchable formats, and Elite, for artistic formats; and WorldCam functionality is also available through the GV-eLicense program. Each model includes support for wide color gamut (WCG) as a standard feature for even more natural color reproduction in all modes, as well as the optimal high dynamic range (HDR) functionality with a full 15 f-stops (available by eLicense only).
“These three series of cameras provide a means for broadcasters to capture images from difficult, but impactful angles where only a compact camera can fit. In any application, these cameras use well-shot, high-quality images to tell a better story and provide a unique experience that viewers couldn’t even get if they had a ticket to the live event.”Neerav Shah, senior vice president of strategic marketing, Grass Valley.
LDX C86N UHD/HD Cameras
To capture high-quality 4K images from anywhere, the LDX C86 N features 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 C86N Series is fully compatible with the LDX 86 and LDX 86N Series cameras to match perfectly in color reproduction and wide-gamut acquisition.
In keeping with compatibility among camera models, the newly upgraded LDX C86 Series are more aligned than ever with the LDX 86 Series for improved transition between cameras. The LDX C86 HiSpeed and LDX C86 XtremeSpeed cameras offer 3x speed and 6x speed, respectively, as well as WCG and HDR capabilities (available by eLicense only); and the new LDX C86 WorldCam offers the ultimate HD performance in all formats including 1080i/720p, 1080p and the creative Psf formats.
