Qvest Media Selects
Grass Valley Cameras
Q

vest Media has become the first
rental provider in Germany,
Austria and Switzerland to expand its
product portfolio with IP-enabled and
native 4K UHD camera systems from
Grass Valley, a Belden Brand.
Since October 2017, Qvest Media
has been offering its rental customers
Grass Valley's IP-enabled 4K UHD
camera systems. The new LDX 86N
Series native HD/3G/4K High Speed
system cameras along with the XCU
Universe UXF SDI/IP base station are
available for both dry hire and medium
and long-term productions. In addition
to 3G-SDI, the LDX 86N 4K UHD
camera also has IP SMPTE ST 2110 and
12G-SDI support.
The choice fell on the IP and

4K-capable solution, as both standards
will change the industry significantly,
according to Qvest Media. The
company notes that SMPTE ST 2110
has increasingly established itself as
the standard for IP, opening up new
possibilities in the production and
distribution of high-resolution content.
"Extending our partnership with
Grass Valley and investing into IP
and 4K-capable cameras was the
right choice. It is our next step into
the future of broadcast and media
production," comments Alexander
Hogrefe, head of rental at Qvest Media.
"IP and 4K are two emerging standards
that gain in importance especially in
OB and live production environments.
Now, our customers will benefit the

Grass Valley XCU Universe UXF SDI/IP base station

most from the latest
technologies and
systems
which
provide the best
possible assistance
for their daily
business."
Grass Valley's LDX
86N 4K camera is specifically
designed for live broadcasts, especially
for sports production, but also for
studio environments. This high-end
camera provides a traditional HD/3G
acquisition, as well as 4K UHD capture.
Like all Grass Valley cameras, the
LDX 86N 4K can be extended as
needed with the optional GV-eLicense
to a 6X HD and 3X HD/3G frame rate.
The XCU Universe UXF base station is
developed to meet the LDX extended
bandwidth potential requirements,
to support high-speed operation as
well as HDR. In addition, the new base
station combines baseband, 3G and
12G SDI and IP functionality in a hybrid
device.

Thomas Weigold, Sales Manager,
DACH, Grass Valley, comments, "We
value the long-term collaboration with
Qvest Media as an innovative partner,
helping us to inspire live productions
with our latest equipment. We are
therefore delighted that Qvest Media
is showing its pioneering spirit, being
the first rental company in Germany to
include the LDX 86N 4K camera with
IP support in its portfolio. Together,
we can service a wider market to
support and advise our customer
base to transform digitally into IPbased broadcast productions in 4K
resolution."

our regional channel partners, as well
as our collective ability to capitalise on
the AV/IT convergence and increasing
demand for IP-based solutions,"
said Colin Farquhar, CEO at Exterity.

Philippines now uses our solutions to
offer TV and video entertainment in
each of its 690 guest rooms, as well
as digital signage in public areas and
meeting rooms."
To support this regional growth,
the company has hired three new
members of staff spread across the
region, reporting to Jamie Hind,
Regional Director for Asia Pacific:

Chang, and Stephen Tsui.
Bright, who joins Exterity's Asia
Pacific team as a Solutions Consultant,
has been involved in large projects
across Australia, New Zealand and
South-East Asia. He has extensive
experience in IPTV, AV/IT, VOD, and
Digital Signage. Recently, he also
immersed himself in the expanding
OTT/IPTV industry, adding to Exterity's
solutions know-how across mobile

content delivery, infrastructure design,
and CMS utilisation. An expert in the
IPTV space, Bright is a certified Redhat
Linux System Administrator.
Chang, Regional Manager, Asia,
brings extensive local market and
industry solutions knowledge and
experience to Exterity's Asia Pacific
team that support the company in its
expanding hospitality business.
Tsui, Regional Manager, Asia,
based in Hong Kong is responsible
for managing sales and business
development in the region, working

of staff - Greg, Stanley and Stephen
- who will be working alongside our
expert network of partners to offer the
best-in-class products and solutions
for Exterity's customers from Manila
