RTP Portugal orders nearly 50 Grass Valley LDX cameras
Rádio e Televisão de Portugal (RTP) has standardised on Grass Valley cameras, deploying 49 LDX 82 Elite camera systems, with XDR licenses, across its studios and OB fleet. The upgrade to its camera chains provides HD and high dynamic range support across RTP’s live events and studio productions and ensures future-proof acquisition capability. The sale was managed by Grass Valley’s Portuguese channel partner Ibertelco.
With the new cameras in place, the RTP production team can switch between resolutions (1080i, 720p and 1080PsF), while the PowerCurves feature handles shoots in challenging conditions. Any lighting issues are addressed using LDX 82 Elite’s built-in Color Protect function.
The standardisation of camera system is part of RTP’s strategy to reduce the number of technologies under maintenance and assure their readiness for future challenges in the industry.
