(Montreal--November 12, 2014) Grass Valley, a Belden Brand, has supplied Auviso, a technical service provider of audiovisual solutions for events and installations, with four LDX Première advanced imaging cameras and XCU base stations. This purchase will provide Auviso’s growing customer base with the ultimate camera flexibility and superior image quality for a wide range of productions.
Auviso features one of the largest, most modern rental fleets in Switzerland, encompassing audio, video, lighting and rigging. The company supports multiple types of events including general assemblies, TV productions, concerts and festivals, award ceremonies and sporting events.
“Because we provide full-service solutions for special events, the LDX Première camera is an ideal addition to our product portfolio,” said Martin Elmiger, chief executive officer, Auviso. “Flexibility is one of the main reasons we purchased the LDX Première—it meets the needs of our customers no matter what type of production.”
Optimized for a variety of production applications, the LDX Première delivers high performance with stunning imagery in standard multiformat 1080i and 720p acquisition and is fully compatible with Grass Valley’s line of 3G transmission solutions that support all HD formats (720p, 1080i and 1080p). The LDX Première can be scaled up through the GV e-License program, where users have the choice of expanding their camera’s capabilities for seven days or perpetually. This unique upgrade feature provides broadcasters with a flexible tradeoff between CAPEXs and OPEXs.
The XCU base station gives Auviso customers full 3G transmission connectivity for both triax and fiber. The unique XCU cradles are premounted and prewired in the rack, making a secure mechanical and electrical connection. They can easily slide in and out whenever needed and are transferable between OB vans, studios or anyplace.
“The LDX Première camera offers the right combination of quality, flexibility and upgradeability for Auviso’s diverse customer base and the variety of events they produce,” said Said Bacho, senior vice president, EMEA, Grass Valley. “We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Auviso and look forward to supporting the company’s continuing growth and innovation.”
