Leader To Introduce LV5380 Multi-SDI Monitor At IBC2008

Leader's new LV5380 is a highly intuitive multi-SDI monitor which provides all the features needed by non-technical programme-makers in the field or in the edit suite as well as by technically experienced studio-based engineers.
Designed to permit easy on-camera mounting or rack-mounting, the LV5380 displays video and audio signal information in a wide choice of operator-selectable combinations. An integral high-precision 8.4 inch 1024 x 768 pixel XGA colour LCD screen provides accurate source-picture representations, high-resolution waveforms and clearly readable text. Screen calibration can be switched to 6500K or 9300K colour temperature or to storable user-specified settings.
Measuring 315 x 176 x 85mm and weighing 2 kg, the LV5380 can be powered from battery (10 to 18 V DC) or via an external universal mains adapater.
The LV5380 incorporates user-selectable multi-display modes which can be switched to show YCbCr, YRGB, YGBR or RGB luminance waveform, colour vector, five-bar, surround-sound level, status and video source. Freeze mode allows comparisons of different SDI inputs signals.
Thumbnail picture display can be selected with other multi-display operating modes for easy source identification.
Integral dual auto-detecting inputs allow the LV5380 to be used for monitoring and analysis of over 20 HD-SDI/SD-SDI formats including SMPTE 259M, 274M, 292M and 296M.
Input format, colorimetry, black burst or tri-level external reference input are auto-sensed. Front-panel USB drive connectivity allows video stills to be captured at the press of a button as well as storing presets and software updates.
Additional features include signal status and protocol checks, user-settable error monitoring and detection, digital line-selection and menu control of storage of 3D front-panel configurations.
An option for the LV5380, Leader's unique new CINEZONE software (also being introduced at IBC2008) provides an intuitive real-time overview of luminance levels using colour coding.
Paul Vos, General Manager of eiQuip BV, Broadcast Master Distributor for Leader Electronics Corporation in Europe, said: "The LV5380 derives from Leader's flagship LV5800 multi-SDI monitor and is similar both in performance and capabilities.
"Leader's design objective was to focus on producing instruments that are easy for television creatives to use while retaining all the capabilities needed by broadcast studio engineers.
"The LV5380 combines a new easy-to-use control panel and a new large high-precision screen. Leader's optional CINEZONE software makes the LV5380 even more powerful by giving creative users the ability to monitor the luminance at every point on the picture and in real time."
Leader will be at Stand: 10.F38 at IBC2008.
