Broadcast Rental brings Grass Valley LDX XstremeSpeed sale to Netherlands
The Netherlands-based rental house Broadcast Rental has purchased the LDX XtremeSpeed (LDX XS) 6X ultra slow-motion camera system, along with companion XCU XtremeSpeed XF Fiber base stations and camera adapters from Grass Valley.
Introduced at NAB 2014, the new LDX XS builds upon the success of Grass Valley’s LDX Series of advanced imaging cameras. Available in both standard and compact form factors, the LDX XS is a handheld, ultra slow-motion camera with a host of features. It delivers instant time-to-air without the need for internal camera storage, and it seamlessly integrates into live workflows with 3X and 6X speeds (plus a live 1X standard speed output). To eliminate the problem of light flicker in super and ultra slow-motion image capture, the LDX XS camera is equipped with AnyLightXtreme to correct artificial light flicker, which can be visually disturbing to viewers.
“By adding Grass Valley’s new LDX XS cameras to our equipment roster, we’re broadening our customer base and giving them the ability to work in super slow-motion and ultra slow-motion applications, as well as perfectly integrating into existing workflow,” says Geert Paul Slee, CEO at Broadcast Rental. “The cameras deliver stunning image quality at impressive frame rates – the first time we tested them we were immediately impressed.”
“Having only been on the market for a few weeks, we’re already seeing the LDX XS break new ground for broadcast professionals,” adds Said Bacho, senior vice-president, EMEA, Grass Valley. “With the addition of the LDX XS, Broadcast Rental can not only widen its pool of customers, but it can help them deliver super and ultra slow-motion capabilities like never before.”
