High-speed cameras go to Xtremes for sports broadcast operators

There were notable additions in the high-speed camera stakes at NAB, including new models from Grass Valley and Panasonic. In a unique two part look at key camera developments at this year’s NAB, leading broadcast acquisition writer David Fox takes us through some key camera launches and how they are already being used by some European sports broadcast operators.

Grass Valley added four new high-speed cameras to its LDX range, including two 6x models: the LDX XtremeSpeed and LDX Compact XS. The cameras offer up to 300 (50Hz) or 359.64 (60Hz) 6x frame rates in 1080i and 720p, plus 150 or 179.82 3x frame rates in 1080p, alongside a 1x standard speed live output, and can output ultra slow-motion video without waiting to transfer clips from an internal storage device or missing any on-field action.
