About the Grass Valley LDX 82 Flex 720p

The LDX 82 Series cameras are a unique line of advanced imaging cameras built around Xensium-FT CMOS imagers. These cameras have the highest sensitivity and image performance across different video formats, while offering a new level of business flexibility by using one hardware platform with a flexible GV-eLicense software upgrade implementation. With the addition of BT.2020 wide color gamut support and optional HDR support, these cameras provide an outstanding solution for all HD/3G applications.

LDX 82 Flex is our entry level model for single format 720p acquisition, where limited artistic tweaking is required. The LDX 82 Series is built for business flexibility and operational excellence, with superior imaging, processing and performance. That means you have the ability to upgrade the LDX 82 Flex to any other camera in the LDX 82 Series based on your business and production needs.

You also get extended colour gamut supporting ITU-R BT.2020. XDR — Extended Dynamic Range — operation (HDR with full 15 F-stops or >800% of regular cameras) is available for all 50/59.94 Hz formats offering a new level of viewer experience.

The GV-eLicense Program offers the following licenses:

  • Perpetual license: Perpetual upgrade to the next camera in the range
  • 7-day license: Temporary 7-day (weekly) upgrade to the next camera in the range
  • HDR perpetual license: Perpetual license for the addition of true 15 F-stop HDR operation in all single speed formats for all LDX 82 Series camera heads is available. (7-day HDR licenses are not available.)
  • B.O.W.L:  Bunch of weekly licenses. Multiple licenses may be purchased to upgrade cameras by more than one level (e.g., LDX 82 Flex to LDX 82 WorldCam). Multiple 7-day licenses may be purchased for extended temporary upgrades. No credit is given for the purchase of 7-day licenses towards the purchase of a perpetual license.

How does the upgrade licensing (GV-eLicense) structure work? A GV-eLicense will temporarily or perpetually upgrade an LDX camera (except LDX WorldCam) to a more advanced model. Each step up the LDX series requires a separate license. If a user moves up one model, they need one license; moving up two models requires two licenses, etc. To increase the duration of a 7-day upgrade, an additional 7-day license must be acquired. To simplify licensing needs, the  B.O.W.L. (simply, a bunch of weekly licenses) licensing system provides a way to preorder any number of 7-day licenses and activate them whenever needed without having to place individual orders.

Once the user decides their license requirements, they supply Grass Valley with the serial number of the camera(s) to which the GV-eLicense(s) should be applied. For 7-day licenses, the user also supplies the start date for the license to begin.

Once the order is placed, the Grass Valley order desk will send an e-mail to the user with a link to a unique and secured website, which will provide an activation code. The code enables a file download. After inserting a USB memory device into the camera, the installation process is completed using menus.
