Grass Valley Xpander LDK-4488/00- USED

For sports and events coverage the use of large zoom lenses is a common requirement. The Xpander acts as a large lens adapter, rapidly converting a portable Triax or fiber camera into a mobile production system. The modular transmission unit allows you to change from Triax to fiber configurations, even in the field.

To make life even easier, your camera can remain mounted in the SuperXpander/Xpander housing for transport, saving rigging time and precious space, and ensuring that the camera is aligned and ready to go immediately. Alternatively, you can mount or release the camera from the housing quickly so you can switch between pedestal, box lens, and handheld applications working with an EFP-style lens – even during a live program.

For fast-moving sports and entertainment television, camera operators demand a large, bright, high-resolution viewfinder. The SuperXpander/Xpander system incorporates a new 7″ monochrome viewfinder providing unprecedented degrees of freedom. The unique design of the SuperXpander/Xpander system puts even a large viewfinder close to the optical axis of the camera, making camera movements and positioning more intuitive for the operator to ensure that the shot is right every time.

Secure connectors for intercom, prompt feed and other accessories are located on the base. The SuperXpander/Xpander also provides secure mounting and balancing for the largest prompt head.

  • The LDK 4488 SuperXpander has all Xpander functionality but it also features a control panel at its rear, putting operational adjustments under the hand of the operator.
