LDX C86 Series Compact High Frame Rate Cameras

The LDX C86 Compact HiSpeed and LDX C86 Compact XtremeSpeed are the world’s first self-contained high-speed cameras in a small form factor. They are an extension to the revolutionary LDX 86 Series of cameras — built for business flexibility and operational excellence — with superior imaging, processing and performance

The LDX C86 Compact HiSpeed (LDX Compact HS) 3X/1X HD camera provides identical performance to the LDX 86 HiSpeed (except for AnyLightXtreme) in a small package, with both a 3X and 1X output. The LDX C86 Compact HiSpeed is software upgradable via GV-eLicenses to the LDX C86 Compact XtremeSpeed camera.

The LDX C86 Compact XtremeSpeed (LDX Compact XS) 6X/3X/1X HD/3G camera offers a lot of firsts: the first compact ultra slow-motion camera, the first compact to deliver instant time-to-air with no internal camera storage requirement, and the first compact ultra slow-motion camera to integrate seamlessly into live workflows with higher than 3X speeds. With speeds up to 6X operation in 1080i and 720p, plus 3X speed operation in 1080p, the LDX C86 XtremeSpeed is the perfect addition for super slow-motion and ultra slow-motion applications, with an additional 1X standard-speed \"live\" output.

Both cameras are specifically designed for high-quality high frame rate acquisition where space is at a premium, including robotic and PTZ locations
The LDX C86 Compact HiSpeed for 3X speed HD applications is the first 3X super slow-mo speed camera system to offer an upgrade path to a 6X ultra slow-motion camera system via GV-eLicenses
The LDX C86 Compact XtremeSpeed 6X HD camera system sets a new standard for ultra slow-motion image acquisition with instant time-to-air without a cumbersome double-action memory buffer in the camera — so that not a single moment of the action will be missed or lost
The LDX C86 Compact XtremeSpeed also provides 3X 3G high frame rate acquisition
Both cameras offer a live 1X standard-speed output in addition to the high-speed output
Both cameras offer the highest sensitivity and image performance across all of the different acquisition speeds
