  • The LDK 3000 which was introduced at the NAB 2009 is Grass Valley’s new affordable studio/portable camera for HD acquisition.It combines the LDK 8000 based mechanics with our full bandwidth TriaxHD signal transmission and the latest 34 bit signal processing with 2/3” Xensiumcamera imagers based on CMOS technology.The LDK 3000 provides a 35-40% (if compared to LDK 8000 camera systems) savings while allowing great image performance and a feature set which fulfils customer requirements for many applications.The target markets for LDK 3000 include: regional studios, SNG-vans, compact OB-vans, high end corporate productions, house of worship, etc. - Click on the first “Xensium” sensor for more detailed information via your web browser, as well as the LDK 3000 picture for additional information.
  • The LDK 8300 is the first and only HD Super SloMo camera system which offers full switchability between normal speed, double speed and triple speed.In addition Grass Valley’s new AnyLight anti-flicker processing allows the camera to produce clean and undisturbed images even under the most demanding lighting conditions.These two unique features allow for better utilization of its investment costs.The LDK 8300 is the ideal camera for all customers requiring the best possible Super SloMo images (such as large OB-van operators) while also providing the highest flexibility (such as rental companies).There are five presets for different lighting conditions available in the LDK 8300 camera. These presets can be accessed from the Operational Control Panel or the Base Station. The various presets allow the camera to reduce the flickering in the most effective way. It is dependent on the amount of light fluctuations caused by the type of light being used. The following AnyLightTM presets are available: Optimal (default) - for daylight and non-alternating or high-frequency artificial lighted environments. Each field has the same video level and flicker reduction is not needed.Good - for good artificial lighting with minor amplitude changes. Suitable for environments lighted with incandescent or well balanced three-phase lighting. Also use this preset for mixed daylight and artificial lighting.Fair - for artificial lighting with significant amplitude changes, for example fluorescent lighted environments.Poor - for artificial lighting with major amplitude changes. Examples are environments lighted with HMI, MHD, gas discharge lamps or neon light.Extreme - results in a completely flicker free image but it introduces an increased level of motion blur. Use this preset only when extreme light amplitudes occur. Note: this preset uses a different flicker reduction algorithm than the Good, Fair and Poor presets.
  • With the “Elite“ upgrade the well proven LDK 4000 / 8000 camera system has become even better.In addition to the high system flexibility based on our unique dockable concept and the multiple transmission adapters available we now also offer a new level of image performance and a great new feature set.The sensitivity and the S/N-ratio have been improved by approximately 8 dB. Even though the HD pixels are 4x smaller and therefore less sensitive, through our developments the Elite series of cameras are very comparable to the SD S/N ratio, something not thought possible earlier.With the new multi-vector color corrector we offer a new level of flexibility in controlling the look of the color reproduction.The unique “in sensor” format switching by HD-DPM+ allows the camera to produce all the HD formats which are in use today directly and natively inside the CCD imagers with no electronic conversions required. DPM sensors (9.2M pixels) are unique with the following benefits:-Progressive frame sampling is the native imaging mode, providing complete frame samplesEntire sensor surface is used for image sampling – no interline channels which introduce aliasing artefactsSensor shuttering total eliminates vertical smearNative sampling of each HD format eliminates the need for cross-converting, therefore no artefacts Continuous auto black balance sampling at each sensor, therefore no need to black balance at start or during the production – gives excellent colour consistency.Choice of Triax, Fibre or Wireless :-Maximum operational flexibility for Studio and OB operatorsOptimal utilisation of equipment, therefore maximise ROI Triax transmission is full bandwidth 4:2:2 and allows easy connectivity with majority of today’s triax cabled arenas, stadiums, and venuesFibre offers the additional bandwidth required for Super SloMo and very long operating distances - 4000 metres (over 13000 ft )Wireless offers a fully integrated ‘go anywhere’ solution with the same operational look and feel of ‘wired’ systems.
  • Two new extensions to the already extremely versatile Infinity DMC 1000 camcorder has been introduced at NAB 2009.The first one is the integration of a special version of the Telecast Copperhead transmission system.The Infinity camcorder allows for a much deeper integration of the copperhead system than is done with any other competitive camcorders.It can be easily seen in the much smaller physical size of the camera adapter and less cabling between Infinity and the Copperhead transmission adapter.The second extension to the Infinity camcorder system is the optional support of the 1080p24-30 formats.In combination with the 10bit 4:2:2 JPEG2000 codec it offers an extremely high image performance for a very attractive price point. While in presentation mode, click on each of the 3 pictures for more information and interactive and video sites via your web browser.
  • The frames are also used in various combinations in all the applications within the Aurora workflow.*The assignment list plug-in when used in the ENPS newsroom computer system brings lo-res browsing, logging, and even the ability to modify the start and end points of finished stories right to the journalist desktop.*Exactly the same assignment list plug-in can be used exactly the same way in the Avid iNews or Octopus newsroom computer systems. The plug-in is completely compatible with the open Media Object Server protocol, allowing easy integration with other MOS-compliant newsroom computers.*A different combination of frames brings metadata creation, management, logging , and transfer management capabilities to Aurora Ingest*All of those functions plus the ability to drop the exact frames described by a logging note directly onto the timeline in Aurora Edit…*Aurora Playout users in the control room and previewing material can adjust start and stop times in low resolution without tying up a valuable Playout channel By enabling content management throughout the workflow, MediaFrame lets the entire staff share their work byFinding and viewing mediaAdding, viewing and modifying descriptive informationSending Archive and Partial or Full Restore requestsCreating shot lists for editors

(For example trigger the close sting music to play 1 minute from the show ending.)IGNITE IQ - included with ALL IGNITE SystemsIQ Templates – more flexible production templates Auto-channel – reduces resource conflicts
  • MediaFUSE – Official LaunchMediaFUSE is a software and hardware Platform , option for Ignite, that empowers broadcasters to efficiently re-purpose content for broadcast on the Internet, and on mobile devices. MediaFUSE allows broadcasters to:Repurpose ALL content, including extended play, in a much shorter time frame, using the same personnel on staff today;Stream shows live, and replace over-the-air content and breaks with material created for, or more appropriate for, web and mobile distribution;─ Produce better content that has much more metadata that can be used to make all content more valuable and targeted;─ Implement the C.O.P.E. workflow (create once, publish everywhere) that leverages the production of content to enable a sound business strategy for multi-distribution of content
  • To complete the Elite family, Elite 100 is now available in VHD Band 3. This new release meets mobile TV emerging market (T-DMB) as well as digital radio (DAB+). Both T-DMB and DAB+ are based on DAB standard evolutions. DAB, DAB+ and T-DMB are successful implemented all over the world. 17 countries have already adopted them and more than 30 countries are currently making trials. Ranging the medium power range, Elite 100 VHF will also enable to extend our presence on the US market. Elite 100 VHF descriptionBand 3: 170MHz to 240MHzOutput power rate: from 100W rms to 1200 W rmsBased on the structure of the efficient and field proven Elite 100 UHF version Elite 10, the newly developed low-power segment of the now complete Elite digital TV transmission range, includes extremely compact iso-frequency gapfillers as well as robust transmitters. After the successive releases of the high-power Elite 1000 and medium-power Elite 100 transmitters, necessary as the first step of any digital deployment, the complementary low-power coverage is crucial to fill-in coverage holes. Elite 10 is then particularly adapted to achieve indoor/outdoor coverage in dense urban areas or outdoor coverage in mountainous areas.

  • EDIUS continues to add both new features and new workflow improvements with the release of Version 5.1, new updates for Aurora integration and workgroup products.EDIUS 5.0 was introduced last IBC (September 2008) featuring end-to-end native workflows for JPEG2000 (in addition to end-to-end workflows for P2, XDCAM, HDV and others). No transcoding or rewrapping is needed to support these formats – they are supported natively. Additionally, EDIUS 5.0 featured a renewed package of third party plugins and applications worth over $1000 in value. Dramatic improvements in codec efficiency improved the number of layers of HDV or JPEG2000 streams EDIUS can process in realtime. See NPAs and sales tools for more info.To this, EDIUS 5.1 adds new features such as Blu-ray disc writing from the timeline, partial download of P2 and XDCAM clips, and direct export to our FIRECODER Blu hardware accelerator for Blu-ray discs. EDIUS 5.1 is available for $799 (US MSRP) and as a free upgrade for existing users of 5.0.Aurora EDIUS Sys 5.1 is the new Aurora system plugin for EDIUS. With this update, EDIUS is now a full-fledge member of the Aurora product family. In addition to NRCS and QoS support, the new system plugin features drag-and-drop integration with MediaFrame, import of Aurora Edit XML files, Script Viewer, import of Long GOP VMF files, creation of smart bins and multiple send. Aurora EDIUS Sys 5.1 is available for $5200 (US MSRP) and as a $299 (US MSRP) upgrade for existing users of this plugin (formerly known as Aurora-Craft-SYS).EDIUS XRE is a new conform/render engine for EDIUS. It essentially works as a batch processor for final comform of completed projects. When finished editing a project, an EDIUS user in a workgroup can send the final project to an XRE engine and start editing the next project. Multiple users can access and XRE and multiple XREs can be connected to a workgroup. XRE works in both Aurora and K2 Production Storage environments.
  • Several products were announced at IBC 2008 last September and are making their North America debut at NAB 2009. These include:HDSPARK: HDMI monitoring for EDIUS with unbalanced audio monitoring output. Available as a standalone board, bundled with full EDIUS or bundled with an upgrade version of EDIUS. Targeted at high end professional and broadcast users.HDSTORM: HDMI input and output with optional analog I/O bay with composite/S-video/component video I/O and unbalanced audio I/O. Targeted at professional users.HDTHUNDER: SD/HD-SDI I/O with embedded audio, HDMI and audio monitoring output, machine control and reference input. Targeted at high end professional and broadcast users. HDTHUNDER will soon be available as a turnkey system as well.FIRECODER Blu: Hardware accelerator for Blu-ray encoding. Features a standalone “FIRECODER Writer” application for simple authoring and “write to file” or “write to disc.” As of EDIUS 5.1, you can export directly to FIRECODER Blu from the EDIUS timeline. Approximately 2-3x faster than realtime for HD files, 4-5x faster than realtime for SD files.FIRECODER Intra: Hardware accelerator for AVC Intra 50/100 encoding. Export directly to FIRECODER Intra from the EDIUS timeline.
