Bert Blümer expands Grass Valley wireless camera offering
German rental house Bert Blümer has added four more Grass Valley LDK 8000 Elite HD wireless camera systems to its inventory, in order to meet the growing demands from broadcasters and events production companies. This new order brings the total number of Grass Valley wireless cameras in Bert Blümer’s inventory to nine.
“The compact design of the Grass Valley wireless camera makes it very easy to set up and use as a handheld or on a Steadicam,” says Bert Blümer. “My customers tell me the ease of use, speed of set-up, and ease of integration is a great benefit to them, and that’s why I ordered four more.”
“Producers specify wireless cameras because they need the freedom of movement to get unique shots,” adds Jeff Rosica, Executive Vice President, at Grass Valley. “That’s why, when designing our wireless camera system, we made sure that the practicalities and ergonomics were as good as the digital transmission system. The result is that camera operators feel perfectly comfortable, and the director knows the image quality will be good.”
The LDK 8000 Elite wireless camera uses 10-bit signal processing and JPEG 2000 compression to achieve excellent picture quality with minimum latency. The transmission system uses COFDM modulation and a three antenna diversity system to ensure excellent reception stability. A two-way data path ensures connection between the camera head and the base station, with engineering control matching that of cabled cameras.
