dock10 Acquires Leader Waveform Monitor

dock10 has purchased a Leader LV5600 SDI/IP waveform monitor as part of ongoing technical development of the production resources supporting MediaCity UK in Salford.

The LV5600 was supplied by Leader Europe UK channel partner Jigsaw24. It will be integrated into dock10's newly completed UHD HDR live production system, checking incoming camera feeds from multiple studio cameras to ensure uniform alignment and color matching.

"Ultra high definition and high dynamic range each have an important role to play in the television industry as it progresses to meet rising viewer expectations," commented John O'Shaughnessy, Head of Technology Operations at dock10. "The greater quality made possible by originating content in higher resolution and wider illumination span opens up many new opportunities for content creators. It also increases the long-term value of their productions. Leader's LV5600 incorporates the tools our operators and technicians need to ensure the full impact of UHD and HDR is carried from the point of capture in the studio front end right through to each viewer's display screen."

"The transition to higher resolution and wider dynamic range is a one-way journey," added Rupert Watson, Sales Director, Production and Production, at Jigsaw24. "The LV5600 allows production and post production companies to check and compare all the essential parameters within a single compact instrument."

"Leader is clearly established as the industry-preferred test and measurement equipment manufacturer for broadcast UHD and HDR production, whether in SDI or IP workflows, for terrestrial, satellite, cable or OTT delivery," added Leader Europe Business Development Manager Kevin Salvidge. "Our Cinezone HDR display gives camera crews the opportunity to monitor and adjust HDR images and optimise UHD focus in real time. Technicians have fast access to practically every aspect of the video and audio signal feed, plus related data, including the ability make side-by side comparison of two or more sources on a single easily configured touch screen. In its robust portable case, the LV5600 is ideal for use even in the most demanding environments."

Leader's LV5600 is a mains-powered SDI/IP waveform monitor in a 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. Engineering related features include test pattern generation, eye pattern display, closed caption monitoring, CIE color 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 SMPTE 2110 protocols are all supported. The LV5600 also incorporates Leader's intuitive Cinezone and Cinelite which are familiar to many content production staff.

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

The recently announced option LV5600-SER06/LV7600-SER06 is a 25 GbE single-mode video-over-IP / multi-mode fibre IP interface which provides full conformance with the SMPTE 2110 standard for transmitting 4K content in a non-compressed format via Ethernet at up to 25 gigabits per second. Also new for these instruments, option LV5600-SER32/LV7600-SER32 is an IP test pattern generator which can produce HD and 3840 x 2160 UHD test signals for delivery via SMPTE ST 2110-20/30/31/40 IP. IP channel stress testing can be performed by adding jitter and errors to IP packets. A network synchronisation mode allows PTP-synchronised video and audio test signals to be generated.
