Leader LV5700 waveform monitors installed in PrimeVision OB unit

Three Leader LV5700 multi-standard HD/SD waveform monitors have been purchased by Copenhagen-based PrimeVision and installed in its 'HD30.com', one of the world's largest HD mobile production trucks.
The latest addition to its OB fleet, HD30.com is a no-compromise mobile production facility with an 80-input Sony MVS8000 vision mix/effects desk, Studer Vista 8 audio console, HDCAM VTRs and EVS LSM disk servers. Six months from concept to completion, the 64 square metre vehicle made its exhibition debut on the OB campus at IBC 2004 in September and was field-proven during coverage of the Copenhagen Grand Prix, Athens Olympics and a variety of productions in many European countries.
HD30.com's CCU area is large by normal OB standards but space becomes critical when the control team is handling 30 incoming camera feeds. The Leader LV5700 combines HD-SDI and SD-SDI waveform monitoring and vectorscope capabilities in a single compact and reliable unit with a clear readout and easily accessible controls.
Flemming Rosenkrantz, Commercial Director at PrimeVision, said: "A central feature in the choice of these units was Leader's unique equivalent-cable-length measurement system, which is a standard feature of all LV5700 instruments. This is particularly valuable in HD environments where long-run cables must be checked to ensure that incoming digital feeds are robust."
