NAB Show NY: Leader Instruments To Exhibit 4K HDR Test, Measurement Tools
Following a highly successful SMPTE 2016 in Hollywood and CAPER 2016 in Buenos Aires, Leader Instruments will exhibit its range of advanced test and measurement solutions in booth 1711 at NAB New York. Representatives attending will include Motoyasu Kajikawa (Leader Instruments Corporation President), Hiromitsu ‘Matsu’ Matsubayashi (Market Development Manager), and Scott Cannon (Eastern Regional Business Development Manager).
“Leader is at the forefront in developing high-precision test and measurement instruments,” comments Pete Anderson, Director of Sales. “We can handle ultra-high-definition and high-dynamic-range with products that match the needs of customers working in studios, mobile trucks or on location. A key strength of Leader products is that they deliver the features and detailed measurements needed by engineering staffs while at the same time being extremely easy to use.
“We will be introducing new high-dynamic-range features for our LV5490 4K waveform monitor and LV7390 4K upgradeable rasterizer,” he continues. “These will allow people in production to derive the full benefits of the latest-generation cameras operating in UHD and HDR. We will also be demonstrating our Leader LV5770A and LV5333 3G/HD/SD-SDI waveform monitors, LV5381 four-input HD/SD-SDI waveform monitor plus our LV7770 multi-SDI and LV7330 rasterizers. These are all compatible with high-definition and standard-definition signal formats currently used around the world.”
New: Leader LV7390SER20 4K HDR upgrade option for LV7390 rasterizer
The Leader LV7390 is a compact 1 RU 3G/HD/SD-SDI rasterizer which can be used to measure up to four 3G-SDI, HD-SDI or SD-SDI sources simultaneously. It can be deployed for desktop or rack-mounted operation. Designed for easy connection into 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI systems, the LV7390 incorporates full-resolution 3G/HD-SDI and DVI-I rasterized outputs which allow detailed video and audio parameters be checked on a separate monitor in full 1920 x 1080 HD resolution.
The new LV7390SER20 4K upgrade allows the LV7390 to support 4K/UHD production and post. The upgrade includes 4K high-dynamic-range measurement capabilities for the ITU.BT.2100 Hybrid Log Gamma, Dolby PQ, and Sony SLOG-3 protocols. This capability plus a compact 1 RU form-factor makes the LV7390 ideal for production environments that cannot accommodate a full size waveform monitor.
Also included with the LV7390SER20 upgrade is Leader’s CINEZONE HDR, which uses false color to display areas of the image extending into 4K HDR, and can be used with non-HDR monitors. Potential 4K HDR issues can be identified quickly and easily.
The LV7390 can be configured by the operator to display waveform, vector, picture, audio and SDI status. Display of the levels of eight channels of embedded audio is standard. Display layout is customizable from a wide range of available settings including individual full screen or user-defined combinations. These settings can be configured from the front panel and saved for fast recall. 60 user-definable presets are available and can be labeled. The LV7390 can also be controlled using a USB mouse.
New: Leader 4K and HD HDR option for LV5490 waveform monitor
The LV5490SER07 HDR option for the LV5490 now enables this instrument to measure both 4K and HD HDR in ITU.BT.2100 Hybrid Log Gamma, Dolby PQ and Sony SLOG-3 protocols.
The LV5490 offers 4K, UHD, 3G, HD, and SD test and measurement features in a compact portable unit. Waveform, vector and picture display can all be viewed at the same time on the LV5490’s 9 inch LCD monitor. The monitor is full 1920 x 1080 HD resolution with a wide viewing angle and high color reproduction. A 1920 x 1080 HD DVI and HD-SDI rasterized output is also provided to feed a larger monitor. Simultaneous viewing of up to four SDI inputs is possible, including overlays. The size and location of individual channels can be adjusted on the display using a USB mouse so the user is not limited to fixed-size quadrants. The LV5490 can also be controlled remotely using standard KVM tools. Additional options for the LV5490 include eye pattern with jitter measurements, digital audio I/O, Dolby decode, focus assist, CIE color chart and 12G-SDI.
