At NAB 2012, Grass Valley is adding to the flexibility of its 3G Camera Transmission system (introduced at NAB 2011) with the LDK 4427 3G Fiber Camera to 3G Triax Converter, allowing users producing programs in resolutions up to 1080p50/60 to send their signals across any type of cable infrastructure. The LDK 4427 performs a one-to-one conversion of a 3G fiber camera signal to a 3G triax signal. Ancillary data—such as return video, control, and intercom—are also converted on a one-to-one basis, with full access to all transmission diagnostics at any time.

“With the new LDK 4427, the 3G Camera Transmission family of products is complete and Grass Valley now offers the ultimate in camera transmission flexibility,” says Marcel Koutstaal, senior vice president of cameras for Grass Valley. “With all of our 3G Camera Transmission systems, there is absolutely no compromise in quality and each converter allows customers to get even more value out of their camera investment.”

The Grass Valley LDK 4427 is built to withstand extreme weather situations, conforms to the IP54 safety standard (ensuring that it is dust- and waterproof), and comes standard with a sun hood and a rugged camera-mounting bracket. It can also be placed in a standard 19-inch rack where up to four units can be mounted side-by-side.

Grass Valley’s 3G Triax transmission system delivers all HD video formats—720p, 1080i and 1080p—from the base station. It’s compatible with the LDK 8000 Elite and LDK 4000 Elite HD camera heads.

The LDK 4427 3G Fiber Camera to 3G Triax Converter will be available in May with a list price of $24,853.

Directed by Robert Carsen, this version of the popular musical originally opened at the Théâtre du Châtelet theater and opera house and then moved to the Grand Palais when the Châtelet closed for renovations. Riedel's Artist, Bolero, Performer, and RiFace systems support communications throughout the 2,400-seat theater built within the Grand Palais.
