The Grass Valley LDX 86N is a multi-format camera channel capable of native 4K/HD/3G and multi-speed (1x/3x/6x) image capture, depending on the licensing options you choose.

Thanks to an innovative licensing model, the Grass Valley LDX 86N is a single camera that meets all your operational needs. From single-speed HD to ultra-clean XtremeSpeed and crisp 4K HDR, you can either opt for perpetual licences or activate and deactivate daily or weekly licences for the features you need when you need them, for as long as you need them.

The LDX 86N combines outstanding image performance and excellent light sensitivity. The camera is built around Grass Valley’s advanced 4K XensiumHAWK CMOS imager, and includes unique pixel technology DPMUltra (dynamic pixel management) functionality to provide outstanding native 4K UHD, 3G and HD image performance.

This allows the camera to have the highest sensitivity and image performance across different video formats. This includes extended colour gamut supporting ITU-R BT.2020 and a software upgrade to enable 15 F-stops of high dynamic range (HDR) in single-speed operation.
