With one of the best known imaging design teams in the world
and six technical and engineering Emmy® awards for camerarelated technologies, Grass Valley camera products continue to
break ground for innovation and creative ideas.
The LDK 500 is the first to use 14-bit analog-to-digital conversion,
providing four times as many levels from each sensor as a 12-bit
camera. This conversion technology ensures that you can capture
even the most subtle graduations in tone and pass them on to the
camera’s next-generation digital-processing system, the V-Engine.
Grass Valley continues to bring superior digital acquisition to a
broad range of broadcast applications with the LDK 500 camera,
which provides a new creative tool for SD television production.
The use of 14 bits also provides for better headroom handling in
the digital domain, along with lower digital noise to better match
the new low-noise CCDs of the LDK 500.
LDK 500 Sensors
V-Engine Digital Signal Processing
The LDK 500 is available as either a switchable 16:9/4:3 system
or as only a 4:3 camera. In either case, its ultra-low smear IT
sensors feature a high sensitivity of F14 at 2000 lux, enabling
exceptional results in low light and high-contrast situations.
The next-generation V-Engine provides you with new level of incamera creativity, offering more precise control over effects as well
as greater processing power.
The LDK 500 has two motorized filter wheels, the first containing
neutral density filters and the second with optical effects filters,
including star filters and soft focus. The LDK 500 camera also
includes digital filters, delivering a completely new level of
creativity within the camera head.
As with other LDK series cameras, you make all LDK 500
adjustments in the digital signal domain, giving you complete
repeatability. These parameters include highlight handling, contrast
and gamma control (with preset and variable gamma settings),
variable matrix for colorimetry adjustments, flare, white/black
shading, leaking pixel concealment, gain, and contour.

SD Camera Family
Yet the V-Engine is very different from traditional digital cameras that
base their processing workflows on previous analog camera systems.
Instead of a largely linear flow of data through various processing steps,
the V-Engine acts as a routing switcher and memory controller and
features two application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) that function
as co-processors. This approach creates a programmable videoprocessing architecture that can accommodate not only current features
such as digital filters (see below) but one into which you can download
new algorithms and features, helping to maximize your investment.
Added Creativity
Multi-Matrix Color Corrector – Further enhancing your creativity is
a multi-matrix secondary 16-vector color corrector. Using it, you can
select a color segment and replace it with another; in both cases you
can adjust the hue and luminance levels as well as the transition of the
adjusted area.
One new added feature of the V-Engine is a freeze-frame capability
that can streamline workflows and reduce costs. For example, you can
capture a frame, allowing your talent and lighting director to leave while
you make engineering adjustments, setting up parameters such as skin
tone detail or effects without incurring additional costs.
LDK 500 – Compact, Lightweight, Ergonomic
The built-in frame store of the LDK 500 also allows the use of V-shift
while the camera is genlocked, so that you can eliminate bars on
unsynchronized monitors or projectors. It is also possible to delay the
camera’s output by one frame to aid in synchronizing it with wireless
cameras.
In common with other Grass Valley LDK series cameras, the LDK 500
offers a compact and lightweight docking design, based on a camera
body renowned for its robustness and ergonomic design. This makes the
camera suitable for a very wide range of applications from simple handheld configurations to full studio uses.
The unique architecture of the LDK 500 also accommodates additional
software features, including a multi-matrix color corrector and digital
video effects filters.
Docking adapters make the LDK 500 part of a future-proof system.
Currently, adapters are available for analog or digital triax, digital multicore, or wireless operation. With these adapters, you can easily change
the camera from handheld to studio operation.
New Levels of Creativity with Digital Filters
The digital filters of the LDK 500 are part of the V-Engine and are fully
adjustable to provide a very wide range of effects with several presets.
You can see examples of these effects below.

SD Camera Family
Yet the V-Engine is very different from traditional digital cameras that
base their processing workflows on previous analog camera systems.
Instead of a largely linear flow of data through various processing steps,
the V-Engine acts as a routing switcher and memory controller and
features two application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) that function
as co-processors. This approach creates a programmable videoprocessing architecture that can accommodate not only current features
such as digital filters (see below) but one into which you can download
new algorithms and features, helping to maximize your investment.
Added Creativity
Multi-Matrix Color Corrector – Further enhancing your creativity is
a multi-matrix secondary 16-vector color corrector. Using it, you can
select a color segment and replace it with another; in both cases you
can adjust the hue and luminance levels as well as the transition of the
adjusted area.
One new added feature of the V-Engine is a freeze-frame capability
that can streamline workflows and reduce costs. For example, you can
capture a frame, allowing your talent and lighting director to leave while
you make engineering adjustments, setting up parameters such as skin
tone detail or effects without incurring additional costs.
LDK 500 – Compact, Lightweight, Ergonomic
The built-in frame store of the LDK 500 also allows the use of V-shift
while the camera is genlocked, so that you can eliminate bars on
unsynchronized monitors or projectors. It is also possible to delay the
camera’s output by one frame to aid in synchronizing it with wireless
cameras.
In common with other Grass Valley LDK series cameras, the LDK 500
offers a compact and lightweight docking design, based on a camera
body renowned for its robustness and ergonomic design. This makes the
camera suitable for a very wide range of applications from simple handheld configurations to full studio uses.
The unique architecture of the LDK 500 also accommodates additional
software features, including a multi-matrix color corrector and digital
video effects filters.
Docking adapters make the LDK 500 part of a future-proof system.
Currently, adapters are available for analog or digital triax, digital multicore, or wireless operation. With these adapters, you can easily change
the camera from handheld to studio operation.
New Levels of Creativity with Digital Filters
The digital filters of the LDK 500 are part of the V-Engine and are fully
adjustable to provide a very wide range of effects with several presets.
You can see examples of these effects below.

With one of the best known imaging design teams in the world
and six technical and engineering Emmy® awards for camerarelated technologies, Grass Valley camera products continue to
break ground for innovation and creative ideas.
The LDK 500 is the first to use 14-bit analog-to-digital conversion,
providing four times as many levels from each sensor as a 12-bit
camera. This conversion technology ensures that you can capture
even the most subtle graduations in tone and pass them on to the
camera’s next-generation digital-processing system, the V-Engine.
Grass Valley continues to bring superior digital acquisition to a
broad range of broadcast applications with the LDK 500 camera,
which provides a new creative tool for SD television production.
The use of 14 bits also provides for better headroom handling in
the digital domain, along with lower digital noise to better match
the new low-noise CCDs of the LDK 500.
LDK 500 Sensors
V-Engine Digital Signal Processing
The LDK 500 is available as either a switchable 16:9/4:3 system
or as only a 4:3 camera. In either case, its ultra-low smear IT
sensors feature a high sensitivity of F14 at 2000 lux, enabling
exceptional results in low light and high-contrast situations.
The next-generation V-Engine provides you with new level of incamera creativity, offering more precise control over effects as well
as greater processing power.
The LDK 500 has two motorized filter wheels, the first containing
neutral density filters and the second with optical effects filters,
including star filters and soft focus. The LDK 500 camera also
includes digital filters, delivering a completely new level of
creativity within the camera head.
As with other LDK series cameras, you make all LDK 500
adjustments in the digital signal domain, giving you complete
repeatability. These parameters include highlight handling, contrast
and gamma control (with preset and variable gamma settings),
variable matrix for colorimetry adjustments, flare, white/black
shading, leaking pixel concealment, gain, and contour.

With one of the best known imaging design teams in the world
and six technical and engineering Emmy® awards for camerarelated technologies, Grass Valley camera products continue to
break ground for innovation and creative ideas.
The LDK 500 is the first to use 14-bit analog-to-digital conversion,
providing four times as many levels from each sensor as a 12-bit
camera. This conversion technology ensures that you can capture
even the most subtle graduations in tone and pass them on to the
camera’s next-generation digital-processing system, the V-Engine.
Grass Valley continues to bring superior digital acquisition to a
broad range of broadcast applications with the LDK 500 camera,
which provides a new creative tool for SD television production.
The use of 14 bits also provides for better headroom handling in
the digital domain, along with lower digital noise to better match
the new low-noise CCDs of the LDK 500.
LDK 500 Sensors
V-Engine Digital Signal Processing
The LDK 500 is available as either a switchable 16:9/4:3 system
or as only a 4:3 camera. In either case, its ultra-low smear IT
sensors feature a high sensitivity of F14 at 2000 lux, enabling
exceptional results in low light and high-contrast situations.
The next-generation V-Engine provides you with new level of incamera creativity, offering more precise control over effects as well
as greater processing power.
The LDK 500 has two motorized filter wheels, the first containing
neutral density filters and the second with optical effects filters,
including star filters and soft focus. The LDK 500 camera also
includes digital filters, delivering a completely new level of
creativity within the camera head.
As with other LDK series cameras, you make all LDK 500
adjustments in the digital signal domain, giving you complete
repeatability. These parameters include highlight handling, contrast
and gamma control (with preset and variable gamma settings),
variable matrix for colorimetry adjustments, flare, white/black
shading, leaking pixel concealment, gain, and contour.
