Leader To Launch New ZEN Series Solutions At IBC

News Image
Leader Electronics is to launch the latest additions to its new ZEN series, the LV5600 true hybrid IP and SDI waveform monitor and LV7600 rasterising equivalent, at IBC 2018.

The Leader LV5600 is a mains-powered SDI/IP waveform monitor in a compact half-rack width 3U desktop chassis with a touch-screen front panel display. It provides all the facilities needed to monitor UHD/HD/SD SDI as well as video over IP signals seamlessly in a hybrid operating environment.

A broad set of engineering-related features are provided by the LV5600 including test pattern generation, eye pattern display, closed-caption monitoring, CIE colour chart, high dynamic range measurement, focus assist, customisable screen layout, tally interface, 4K/UHD operation, 10G IP input and 12G-SDI interfaces. SMPTE 2022-6, SMPTE 2022-7 and the recently published SMPTE 2110 protocols are all supported. The LV5600 also incorporates Leader's CINEZONE and CINELITE which are familiar to many content production staff.

IP-specific features include the ability to monitor transmission errors such as packet loss and packet jitter, and to simultaneously measure and display SDI and IP signal sources.

The LV7600 rasteriser offers exactly the same capabilities as the LV5600 but in a low-profile 19 inch 1U form-factor for easy rack or desk mounting.

The LV5600 and LV7600 can be configured from a selection of interface and software-based feature options, enabling customers to specify the capabilities needed for their current requirements. Among the feature options are closed caption measurement, CIE chart display, HDR, SDI signal generation, ID/iris/tally display, 4K and 12G-SDI.

"Leader has helped many broadcasters and broadcast-equipment manufacturers manage their migration from analog to digital, from standard definition to high definition and from standard dynamic range to high dynamic range," said company President, Kozo Nagao. "Most broadcasters now recognise the potential of video over IP both within their studio facilities and for long distance content delivery. The majority will transition to IP via an interim SDI/IP hybrid infrastructure so they will want to handle SDI and IP in a single test and measurement product. The LV5600 and LV7600 address this concern, providing common display interfaces, irrespective of whether the source signal is SDI or IP. Both instruments conform to the Leader style of being intuitive for camera operators to use as well as for engineering staff."

The LV5600 true hybrid IP and SDI waveform monitor and LV7600 rasterising equivalent will make their IBC debut on stand 11.B27 in RAI Amsterdam, 13-18 September.
