Leader Expands ZEN Series With New Monitor And Rasterizer

News Image
IBC 2018 is to mark the European debut of Leader Electronics Corporation's new ZEN series solutions, the LV5350 portable 12G/3G/HD/SD-SDI waveform monitor and its LV7300 rasterizing equivalent.

The solutions will be on display on stand 11.B27 at the RAI in Amsterdam, from 14-18 September.

The LV5350 waveform monitor and LV7300 rasterizer incorporate all the SDI facilities of the top-of-the-range LV5600 and LV7600 minus the IP measurement capabilities which are currently required by only a minority of production and post-production teams. These include engineering-related features such as test pattern generation, closed-caption monitoring, CIE colour chart, high dynamic range measurement, focus assist, customisable screen layout, tally interface, 4K/UHD operation and 12G-SDI interfaces. The LV5350 and LV7300 also incorporate Leader's intuitive CINEZONE and CINELITE which are familiar to many camera crews, editors and colourists. A new focus detection algorithm enables the two instruments to sense edges across a very wide range of image contrast levels.

"IP, 4K/UHDTV and HDR innovations are currently grabbing the headlines but the vast majority of broadcasters are still transmitting in standard definition," said Leader's European Regional Development Manager Kevin Salvidge. "Our new ZEN series offers a like-for-like replacement for their ageing standard definition products while at the same time providing a cost-effective upgrade path to high definition and beyond should their business require it in the future.

"Designed for mobile and studio-based TV and film applications, the LV5350 is a state-of-the-art instrument for today's predominantly SDI world which does not require the IP measurement capabilities. It succeeds the LV5333 which has proved especially popular with DITs and camera crews needing advanced 4K/HD/SD measurement facilities.

"Capable of operating on universal-mains or battery power, the LV5350 can be used practically anywhere to ensure that the captured video and audio make full use of the resolution and dynamic range available within the chosen production standard. Getting the levels right at the point of capture obviously retains much more picture detail than relying on corrective adjustments being applied during post production. With the addition of the CIE colour chart, we anticipate the LV5350 becoming the de-facto on-set test and measurement tool with the LV7300 achieving the same for UHD/HD/SD-SDI post-production studios."

He added: "The LV5350 and LV7300 both offer the very high build quality which makes Leader the premier brand for reliability and measurement consistency. Leader's CINEZONE and CINELITE are integral to each model, allowing camera settings to be optimised quickly and easily between shoots or during a live session. All features are accessible from the front control panel augmented by a 1920 x 1080 resolution 7 inch touchscreen TFT LCD monitor.

"The LV7300 rasteriser offers exactly the same capabilities as the LV5350 but in a low-profile 19 half-rack-width 1U form-factor for easy rack or desk mounting. Eye pattern display is available as an option for this model."

Leader's solutions will be on display at stand (11.B27) during the IBC Show in Amsterdam, 14-18 September.
