Leader To Partake In IDFA Seminar

News Image
Leader Electronics Europe is to take part in an HDR seminar at this year's International Documentary Film-Festival Amsterdam (IDFA).

At the event, Leader will be represented by Kevin Salvidge, European Regional Development Manager, as well as colleagues from Amsterdam-based channel partner Fofic BV. The seminar will be held at the Netherlands Film Academy in the city centre, 7–11pm, 22 November 22. Guest speakers will include Andreas Adler, Marcel Gonska and Philippe Vié.

Kevin Salvidge said: "HDR delivers a highly impressive improvement in picture quality, more so than the comparison between 2D and 3D. One question the seminar will address is how long it will take before HDR transitions from being a premium offering to being the new industry norm. Terrestrial and satellite broadcasters are increasingly gearing to respond quickly to less conservative online content distributors. That reaction should accelerate the pace of advancement as 4K UHD HDR displays become widely affordable.

"We will be explaining the importance of getting exposure correct during the initial shoot rather than relying on renormalisation during post. The Leader LV5490 is the ideal instrument for maintaining full HDR quality right through the production process, whether in the hands of cameramen, postproduction editors or lineup technicians."

The Leader LV5490 offers 4K, UHD, 3G, HD and SD test and measurement features in a portable unit. The LV5490SER07 HDR option enables the LV5490 to measure both 4K and HD HDR in ITU.BT.2100 Hybrid Log Gamma, Dolby PQ or Sony SLOG-3 protocols.
