Grass Valley Releases XF Camera Base Station for Live IP
The Universe XF camera base station supports new video over IP standards.
At the 2017 NAB Show Grass Valley introduced a new camera base station to support live IP operations. The XCU Universe UXF camera base station UXF cradle together support the AIMS roadmap and all IP video formats, including high-speed operation and high dynamic range (HDR), providing the flexibility broadcasters need for their current workflows, for burgeoning IP workflows, and beyond.
Grass Valley’s XCU Universe UXF base stations are designed to support the extended bandwidth requirements of the LDX 86 and LDX 86N Series high-speed cameras with up to 6X speed operation, 4K capability and 15 F-stops of HDR in 1X speed operation. XCU now provides enormous overall flexibility with the ability to output any format video over IP (including TR-03, TR-04 and the new proposed standard ST 2110) or SDI. The new, advanced UXF cradle also features additional 4x MSA compliant SFP+ slots adding fully redundant IP interfacing and 12G SDI through SFP.
As additional support for productions shared over high bandwidth IP networks, the XF Transmission Direct IP Interface eLicense enables a direct IP interface of the complete transmission protocol between the cameras and XCUs over IP networks.
