Leader Introduces LV58SER03 Composite Video Unit

Leader is expanding the capabilities of its top-of-the-range LV5800 multi-standard broadcast waveform monitor with the introduction of the LV58SER03 composite video input module.
Available now, the new module is fully PAL/NTSC compatible and has two 75 ohm BNC inputs plus a loop-through BNC output displaying the selected channel.
When integrated into the LV5800, the LV58SER03 can be used to display waveform, vector, picture and relative phase. In phase-display mode, the composite input is compared to the vertical and horizontal sync of an external reference and displayed numerically as well as graphically for easy sync phase management. Luminance can be isolated and displayed using a low-pass filter. Amplitude and time parametres can be measured to very high accuracy using adjustable cursors. When used in combination with Leader's LV58SER01, the new module enables composite and SDI signals to be measured on a single instrument.
Up to four modules can be housed in the LV5800, allowing users to configure the instrument to meet their specific requirements. This latest addition brings the number of modules currently available to six including the LV58SER01 SDI input, LV58SER02 eye-pattern display generator, LV58SER03 composite video input, LV58SER20 DVI-I output unit and LV58SER40 digital audio module.
Leader's LV5800 platform enables up to eight SD-SDI or HD-SDI sources to be monitored and up to four channels to be displayed simultaneously for level, rise-time, fall-time and jitter. Signal feeds can be monitored autonomously, producing an error log with alarm whenever operator-definable thresholds are violated.
Screens and information shown on the LV5800's high-resolution display can optionally be output to any compatible XGA monitor. Audio bar graphs on the LV5800 have selectable dynamic range and peak or average display ballistics. Audio channel order can be remapped, enabling users to create custom displays. Extracted-AES/EBU and analogue monitoring outputs are included. Standard USB memory devices can be used to capture LV5800 screen images, configuration settings and software/firmware updates. Remote control, file transfer and remote error monitoring can be performed simply by connecting a PC to the Ethernet connector on the rear panel of the LV5800.
