Leader Electronics’ ZEN Series Adds Support for Sony’s ‘SR Live Metadata’

Leader Electronics has added a function in the ZEN series waveform monitors and rasterizers LV5600/LV7600/LV5350/LV5300/LV7300 to decode and display the “SR Live Metadata” packet advocated by Sony Imaging Products & Solutions. “SR Live for HDR” is an important production workflow when broadcast content is moving from HD SDR to 4K HDR or HD HDR, because “SR Live for HDR” allows 4K HDR and HD SDR simultaneous video production.

Leader’s LV5600 waveform monitor now supports Sony’s “SR Live Metadata”

The “SR Live Metadata” is embedded into the SDI signal based on SMPTE ST 291-1 “Ancillary Data Packet and Space Formatting”, and the following information can now be decoded and displayed on the ZEN series:

Table Version, OETF, Transfer Matrix, Color Gamut, Conversion Mode, HDR Look, HDR Black Compression, SDR Gain, Master Black, HDR Black Offset, Gamma Table, Gamma Step, Gamma Level, Knee, Knee Point, Knee Slope, Knee Saturation, Knee Saturation Level, Soft Knee, Knee Radius, SDR White Clip, SDR White Clip Level, HDR Knee, HDR Knee Point, HDR Knee Slope.

This function is now available as a standard function on all ZEN series waveform monitors and rasterizers. For previously purchased products, users can install this function by updating to the latest firmware free of charge.

Leader Electronics supports this “SR Live Metadata” function to enable efficient content production. “SR Live for HDR” is the solution which enables simultaneous HDR / SDR video production, proposed by Sony Imaging Products and Solutions Inc.
