Grass Valley introduces camera base station and advanced cradle

XCU UXF and UXF cradle provide hybrid SDI/IP support and strengthen IP portfolio

Grass Valley’s XCU Universe UXF base stations are designed to support the extended bandwidth requirements of the LDX 86 and LDX 86N Series high-speed cameras with up to 6X speed operation, 4K capability and 15 F-stops of HDR in 1X speed operation. XCU now provides enormous overall flexibility with the ability to output any format video over IP (including TR-03, TR-04 and the new proposed standard ST 2110) or SDI. The new, advanced UXF cradle also features additional 4x MSA compliant SFP+ slots adding fully redundant IP interfacing and 12G SDI through SFP.

 

As additional support for productions shared over high bandwidth IP networks, the XF Transmission Direct IP Interface eLicense enables a direct IP interface of the complete transmission protocol between the cameras and XCUs over IP networks.
