Grass Valley Demos Compact LDK 5307 LCD Colour Viewfinder (15/9/2010)

Grass Valley™ is enhancing its high definition camera line with a new LCD color viewfinder that will be demonstrated with Grass Valley cameras at IBC2010. The LDK 5307 7-inch viewfinder gives operators a bright, sharp high-resolution image with additional functionality to help with focus and set-up

The new LDK 5307 can be used with all current Grass Valley high-definition system cameras: the LDK 3000, LDK 4000 Elite, the LDK 8000 Series, and the LDK 8300 Super SloMo camera. In general use, the LDK 5307 image is high contrast with easily adjustable brightness and color temperature to allow the operator to set the screen to suit individual tastes and requirements. It also boasts a one-touch zoom with 1:1 pixel matching for precision focusing.

The viewfinder set-up is through an intuitive menu structure, which also gives access to camera functionality. As well as soft keys, there are three user-assignable function buttons on the viewfinder to give operators instant access to important operations.

“Our LDK system camera owners made it clear that they wanted to move on from black and white CRT viewfinders, but needed more than just a simple color replacement,” said Jeff Rosica, Senior Vice President of Grass Valley. “We worked with them to find a suitable display with the required resolution, contrast, and brightness for all applications, and added the control and functionality they required.”

The LDK 5307 7-inch viewfinder has a 16:10 aspect ratio with a total display of 800x480 pixels. This is to accommodate an on-screen menu without interfering with the 16:9, 800x450 active video. The LDK 5307 delivers 16.7 million colors (8-bit), high contrast and brightness, a fast response time and wide viewing angles.

Pricing and Availability

The LDK 5307 is now available with a list price of €8,400 ($11.340). AddThis Social Bookmark Button
