Leader Electronics has announced that it will showcase examples from its wide range of broadcast media measurement and analysis solutions on stand 6C3-07 at Broadcast Asia 2023.

• Broadcast Asia debut: JPEG XS license options for Leader LV5600 and LV7600

Making its first Broadcast Asia show appearance will be option LV5600-SER33 for the Leader LV5600 waveform monitor, and option LV7600-SER33 for the Leader LV7600 rasterizer. Each provides support for JPEG XS (SMPTE ST 2110-22) compressed signals up to 4K, allowing JPEG XS channel integrity to be checked during pre-transmission line-up and live operation.

Purchasable as a license option, Leader's SER33 allows studio-based or on-location production staff to monitor and analyze the quality of incoming or outgoing JPEG XS signals using the wide range of tools available within the LV5600 mains-powered SDI/IP waveform monitor and LV7600 rasterizing test and measurement instrument.

A visually transparent compression and inherently low latency video transport medium, JPEG XS is designed to provide visually lossless image quality with low infrastructure costs in applications such as broadcast-quality remote video production and real-time video storage. The format makes very economical use of available transit link bandwidth and offers a high level of multi-generation encoding/decoding robustness. It includes HDR compatibility and can accommodate bit depths of up to 16 bits per component channel. JPEG XS compresses data volume by up to 15:1. The target bitrate can be set to match the available bandwidth.

The new Leader option enables JPEG XS checks to be performed during pre-transmission line-up and live production. Decoded JPEG XS signal streams can be compared alongside uncompressed test sources using the multiscreen facilities common to both instruments. Option SER33 can perform JPEG XS stream parsing, decoding and encoding, compressed video signal and packet header analysis, packet error detection and comparative display of JPEG XS, SDP, and ST2110-40. The SER33 toolset also includes the ability to output JPEG XS compressed video test signals.It also features a bit per pixel adjustment capability.

Leader's LV5600 occupies a half-rack width 3U desktop chassis with a touch-screen front panel display. It provides the facilities needed to monitor 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 chroma chart, HDR measurement, focus assist, customizable screen layout, tally interface, 4K/UHD operation, 10G/25G IP input and 12G-SDI interfaces. SMPTE 2022-6, SMPTE 2022-7 and SMPTE 2110 protocols are all supported. Also incorporated are Leader's CINEZONE and CINELITE which allow fast and intuitive quality monitoring by content production staff.

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

• Also on show:
Leader offers a complete range of test and measurement solutions. Among these are the LT4610 and LT4611 PTP generators, the award-winning ZEN Series LV5600 true hybrid IP/SDI waveform monitor and its LV7600 equivalent rasterizer. The LV5600 provides the same monitoring and measurement resources irrespective of whether the video signal is IP or SDI. That includes the ability to display and compare IP and SDI video sources simultaneously. Also on show will be the Leader LVB440 IP traffic analyzer which gives engineering staff the tools they need to monitor and analyze IP network activity.
