Model Details

Adds 6X HD and 1X/3X 3G acquisition to the LDX 86 HiSpeed for super slow-motion acquisition, and can be upgraded to include 1X 4K (LDX 86 Universe).



  • The LDX 86 Series is the first camera family to have both a spatial and temporal upgrade path, culminating in the LDX 86 Universe for switchable 1X/3X/6X HD, 1X/3X 3G and 1X 4K
  • The LDX 86 XtremeSpeed lets you buy 3X/6X acquisition today, and upgrade to single speed 4K (3840x2160p50/59.94) acquisition when you need to, either for 7-days or with a perpetual license


  • All high-speed cameras offer a live 1X standard-speed output in addition to the high-speed output
  • All high-speed cameras offer the highest sensitivity and image performance across all of the different acquisition speeds, and the unique AnyLightXtreme flicker reduction system assure that no more irritating light flickering occurs in the replays


  • Grass Valley high-speed cameras are fully integrated with all the LDX 80 Series and LDX 86 Series of cameras, so they share the same camera accessories and use the same camera control system, including full support with the Connect Gateway for the best possible integration into external control systems
  • Unique cradle connectivity to support dockable XCU (eXchangeable control unit)
  • Built-in memory in XCU cradle stores settings
  • Standard HD outputs for monitoring or any full performance live usage
  • Extensive (analog/digital) audio connectivity

Additional Detailed Information:

The LDX 86 XtremeSpeed (XS) 6X/3X/1X camera offers a lot of firsts: the first handheld 6X super slow-motion camera, the first to deliver instant time-to-air with no internal camera storage requirement, the first super slow-motion camera to integrate seamlessly into live workflows with higher than 3X speeds and the first super slow-motion camera upgradable to add single speed 4K acquisition. Delivering AnyLightXtreme flicker-free images in speeds up to 6X operation in 1080i and 720p, plus 3X speed operation in 1080p, the LDX 86 XtremeSpeed is the perfect addition for super slow-motion applications, with an additional 1X standard-speed "live" output. You also get extended color gamut supporting ITU-R BT.2020 and the option to software upgrade to enable 15 F-stops of high dynamic range (HDR) in single-speed operation.

For confined spaces, the LDX C86 Compact XtremeSpeed camera provides identical performance to the LDX 86 XtremeSpeed (except for AnyLightXtreme, extended color gamut and HDR) in a small package.
