Grass Valley wins Emmy Award for the LDK 6000 camera
On January 8 2015 the Television Academy will present its 66th Primetime Emmy Engineering Awards in Las Vegas, and Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, will be one of five recipients recognised for technical achievement. The LDK 6000 DPM CCD Multiformat HDTV Camera System, first introduced at the NAB Show in 2000 by Philips, which was subsequently acquired by Grass Valley, is being honoured as a game-changer for its ability to capture multiple video formats and frame rates without physically changing the image sensor.
Based on Grass Valley’s patented Dynamic Pixel Management (DPM) imager technology, the LDK 6000 Camera has been used in a wide variety of high-profile sports events and broadcasting projects. Engineering Emmy Awards are bestowed upon an individual, company or organisation for developments in engineering that are either so extensive an improvement on existing methods, or so innovative in nature, that they materially affect the transmission, recording or reception of television.
“This is the 20th Emmy Award earned by Grass Valley, and it’s just as exciting as the first one,” noted Mike Cronk, senior vice president of strategic marketing, Grass Valley. “The LDK 6000 Camera has played a critical role in so many major events over the years—representing the ongoing innovation that Grass Valley brings to this very demanding market. Our engineers are constantly working to identify and develop products that give our customers a competitive advantage and meet their changing needs for broadcast technology.”
