Studiovision Lebanon Selects Grass Valley 3G Solutions for New Production Truck


With growing consumer demand for high-definition (HD) content, Studiovision Lebanon looked to Grass Valley®, to provide the latest outside broadcast (OB) solutions for its new state-of-the-art production truck.

Studiovision Lebanon has installed 14 cameras (12 new LDX WorldCam™ multiformat HD cameras and 2 LDK 8000 Elite camera systems), a Kayenne® 3 M/E Video Production Center switcher, a Trinix® NXT 256X512 routing switcher with integrated multiviewer, a K2 Summit® 3G media server, and a K2 Dyno® S Elite Replay System in its new OB vans, making them the first 3G-capable OB vans in the region.

“It’s critical for us to be at the forefront of innovation in the industry and to have the leading-edge production tools that are needed to fully accomplish the creative concept of the program, whatever it might be,” said Michel El Murr, CEO of Studiovision. “And that’s why after a competitive review, we decided to work with Grass Valley as we believe that their new LDX Series™ camera system provides the most advanced performance available on the market today.”


“Studiovision’s productions are among the best in the region and we’re excited to be working with them as they use the LDX WorldCam to further push their production boundaries,” said Alan Wright, Regional President for Europe, Middle East, and Africa at Grass Valley. “With Grass Valley’s HD and 3G production solutions Studiovision has placed itself ahead of its competitors.”

A key feature of the LDX Series is its Xensium-FT CMOS imagers, designed by Grass Valley. Xensium-FT imagers provide high-sensitivity in a variety of HD resolutions, and eliminate the rolling shutter effect typically found in CMOS technology.
