The Grass Valley LDX 86N Series cameras give the broadcaster an upgrade route to IP and 4K UHD – as and when it is needed – through a flexible daily, weekly or monthly e-license. Grass Valley’s unique DirectIP functionality enables the XCU UXF base station to be located a considerable distance (up to 20,000 kilometers) away from the camera, allowing the team to manage the bulk of production from a remote or home studio.

The LDX 86N cameras will go live in 2021 and give the Sky Italia team a choice between native 3G/HD and 4K UHD image capture. The DirectIP functionality means that base stations and cameras can be linked through an IP network, allowing any camera to connect to any base station. When combined with SMPTE ST2110 IP infrastructure, this set up gives customers the freedom to optimize equipment usage and allocate camera resources flexibly as needed.
