Russia's NTV Updates News Production with 30 Grass Valley LDX 80 Flex cameras and Karrera K-frame S-series switcher improving efficiency
Grass Valley LDX and Karrera
Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, worked with local systems integrator OKNO-TV to identify the best programming solutions for Russia's NTV National Federal TV Channel. After reviewing a variety of options, NTV selected 30 Grass Valley LDX 80 Flex cameras and a Karrera K-Frame S-series 3 M/E Video Production Center Switcher to improve the quality and efficiency of its 24-hour daily news programming. The purchase is part of a bigger plan for NTV's success and growth—as the movement from standard definition (SD) to high definition (HD) productions will bring more viewers and advertisers.
The LDX 80 Flex provides NTV with single format 1080i or 720p acquisition, where limited artistic tweaking is required. NTV selected the LDX Flex cameras for the stunning imagery combined with exceptionally high sensitivity and low noise performance. Grass Valley cameras have been very well received in the market and NTV appreciates the great after sales support from the local Grass Valley office.
The new 3 M/E Karrera K-Frame S-series complements NTV's existing 2 M/E Karrera K-Frame, providing proven work-flows and simplified control of complex productions, with multi-format support including 1080p and 4K UHD. These unrivalled capabilities are offered as two system packages, with 3 M/Es or 2 M/Es, for exceptional affordability, with up to 80x48 HD I/Os in 6 RU.
The top benefits of the Grass Valley solution for NTV: ability to reuse existing triax infrastructure and integration of the full HD production work-flow, LDX Flex also provides low noise filters for reduction in distracting artefacts on LED panels in the studios.

NEP Europe ramps up Ultra HD and 2SI production and prepares for transition to IP infrastructure with Grass Valley
NEP Europe is to standardise on the new Grass Valley LDX 86N for Ultra HD production, with an initial shipment going in to five new OB trucks, one of which is likely to be Europe’s largest. “We have made an agreement to purchase Grass Valley’s new native 4K camera, because we see 4K is starting to develop in Europe, and now is the time to stop buying normal HD cameras,” said Paul Henriksen, President, NEP Broadcast Services Europe.
The LDX 86N uses new 2/3-inch XensiumHawk CMOS sensors with native 3840×2160 resolution, and use DPMUltra dynamic pixel management to also provide native 1920×1080 HD acquisition (by combining two horizontal and two vertical adjacent pixels inside the imager). The models being delivered to NEP will have all the options, and being both UHD and HD native Henriksen believes will making them ideal where both UHD and HD transmission is required.
NEP is also making its first moves into IP production. “At NEP in the Netherlands it is already using the LDX 86 in an IP environment, and the cameras are upgradeable to IP,” said Marcel Koutstaal, SVP and general manager of the camera product group, Grass Valley. NEP Netherlands has also committed to the LDX 86N. “We have a very strong IP roadmap,” he added.
