Media & Communication Systems buys seven Grass Valley LDX Première systems
Media & Communication Systems GmbH Sachsen Anhalt (MCS), part of MDR in Germany, has ordered seven Grass Valley LDX Première camera systems to improve the flexibility and quality at its MDR Magdeburg broadcast centre.
MCS selected the seven LDX Première systems to replace its existing SD cameras. Key elements for MCS were the LDX’s new, in-house developed, Xensium-FT imager, and 3G Triax Transmission, which will support MCS’s existing infrastructure.
Robert Hansel, managing director of MCS, comments: “Grass Valley made selecting LDX Première easy. With some of the most advanced imaging technologies in the industry combined with a low cost of ownership and implementation, LDX is simply a smart artistic and business decision.”
Part of the recently launched LDX Series, the LDX Première is a dual format HD camera optimised for basic broadcast applications, combining business flexibility, the ability to upgrade software functionality, operational excellence, and outstanding image performance.
“This order for seven LDX Première solutions will enable MCS to greatly improve quality, creativity, and operational efficiency,” says Alan Wright, regional president, Europe, Middle East, and Africa for Grass Valley. “The LDX Series is the new standard in system cameras, offering our customers a real competitive differentiator in quality and flexibility.”
