Soul Movie chooses Grass Valley live production solutions

The Rome based production and post-production house Soul Movie, working together with system integrator Professional Show, has equipped two of its OB vans with Grass Valley LDX 86N WorldCam cameras and XCU Universe XF base stations. The new equipment will be deployed for live events, concerts and various sporting events.

Francesco de Siena, CEO, Soul Movie comments, “We selected the LDX 86N WorldCam cameras because they offer a state-of-the-art picture quality and production flexibility, which is especially crucial for the productions in our new studios at our headquarters in Rome. In addition, the cameras are software upgradeable, which means we can use all of our LDX 86N Series cameras at the same time in XtremeSpeed operation (6X super slow motion) when required.”

“At Professional Show, we welcomed the challenge of building the OB truck with Grass Valley’s latest live production solutions, including Grass Valley's LDX Series cameras to suit Soul Movie’s needs. The LDX 86N WorldCam cameras produce native HD/3G quality and can be upgraded to native 4K UHD, HDR and high-speed acquisition with GV-eLicense for the duration of a project without having to buy it permanently. The cradle concept of the XCU allows for easy moving of the cameras between different OB vans for flexibility and high utilisation," states Fabio Veggiato, CEO of Professional Show.

"We are delighted that Soul Movie turned to Grass Valley. This significant purchase allows Soul Movie to deliver the high quality with a flexible solution that allows them to take advantage of multiple formats and GV camera’s DirectIP solution without changing anything on the camera side," states Jan-Pieter van Welsem, vice president sales, Grass Valley.

The LDX 86N Series is specifically designed for the most demanding live broadcast applications. Together with the XCU Universe XF base stations, the LDX 86N cameras are able to meet Soul Movie’s broadcast requirements. (7/18)
