Grass Valley to Show Expanded Portfolio of Live Production Solutions

At the 2017 NAB Show Grass Valley will reinforce its support of cost-effective yet high quality live productions with new camera and switcher solutions. The company said live events—including sports, breaking news and award shows—have withstood the test of time-shifting and are imperative to broadcasters looking to attract engaged viewers.

At the show the company will introduce the new LDX 82 Series HD camera and the LDX C86N native 4K compact camera, as well as a new K-Frame V-series production switcher frame. 
In fact, Grass Valley’s live production solutions are all designed to handle customers’ emerging HDR, 4K UHD and IP plans.



Grass Valley’s LDX 82 Series now includes four upgradable camera models, offering varying levels of operational flexibility to match every production need.  Each model of the LDX 82 Series offers high sensitivity in all HD formats (including 1080p), a wide color gamut and Grass Valley’s XDR (Extended Dynamic Range) operations with a full 15 F-stops (available by eLicense only). The LDX 82 Series is also available in compact versions, including a new 4K-native LDX 86N Series box-style camera that can also shoot in HD.

In the area of video production switchers (vision mixers), Grass Valley is introducing the GV Korona K-Frame V-series, which serves as an ideal complement to the GV Korona switcher panel. Paired together, the 36x18 matrix supports SD, HD and 4K UHD in quad split and 2SI modes and can handle up to three licensed M/Es and two additional video processing engines (VPEs) for added keying and mixing power.  At only 3RU, V-series fits in locations with limited space but requires no compromises on enterprise features and can be used with any Grass Valley switcher panel.

Also on exhibit will be the K2 Dyno Replay System, with the smallest footprint per channel of any 4K replay solution, according to the company, when it comes to both space and capability. The K2 Dyno system is flexible and scalable, supporting SD, 10-bit HD, high frame rate and 4K UHD with the ability to grow as channel count increases.
