NAB 2024: Grass Valley to showcase breakthrough camera and switcher enhancements

Grass Valley will unveil its latest advancements at NAB Show 2024. The company is set to showcase significant enhancements to the LDX 100 Series broadcast camera platform and the K-Frame video production switchers. These improvements underscore Grass Valley’s dedication to continuous product evolution and its commitment to addressing the complex demands of live production environments.

The latest updates to the LDX 100 Series include advanced HDR/SDR operations, with integrated LUT processing in all LDX 100 series cameras ensuring optimal HDR/SDR signal quality directly from the camera head and base station, reducing the need for external converters; improved design for enhanced usability and high-speed shooting, including modifications to the shoulder pad, handgrip and housing materials that have made the camera lighter and more ergonomic; and new capabilities that allow for 6x 1080p shooting with native UHD resolution of the live signal output, supported in both NativeIP and XCU base station operations.

In addition, a new camera model optimised for wireless operation paves the way for seamless integration with wireless transmission technologies and cloud-based production solutions.

The K-Frame XP series has also been enhanced with new generation IP I/O boards with JPEG XS encoding/decoding capability without loss of I/O count, 100GbE QSFP and 25GbE SFP ports, plus extended buffers in 2160p; internal mapping and translation within the video processing frame supports the most demanding event coverage assisting productions in handling the ever increasing variety of program outputs required; and a new generation of ClipStore offers up to four channels of playback and record in all formats including UHD 4K 2160p with both SDI and IP connections.
