Leader set to roll out new products at BVE
Leader Instruments is introducing three new products at BVE (26-28 February, London), including the LV5307 SDI and HDMI test monitor, the LV5837 audio signal and loudness monitor, and the LV5980 17 inch SDI waveform and video monitor/analyser.
Leader’s LV5307 is a compact 7-inch monitor/rasterizer with internal cross-conversion from 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI to HDMI and vice versa. The HDMI output can be used as a rasterizer, delivering screen content to an external monitor.
Selectable waveform, vector and false-colour test screens can be inset over SDI and HDMI sources. Picture modes include markers, monochrome, blue-only, red–only and green-only, plus cross-pulse. A peaking function enables precise adjustment of camera focus. Easy-to-use controls with presettable quick-function buttons complement the comprehensive display and menus.
As for Leader’s LV5837, it allows fast and precise checking of audio signals and levels in sound recording studios, television studios, post-production houses or broadcast presentation and playout facilities. It accepts up to eight AES/EBU stereo digital audio feeds at 32 to 192 kilohertz sampling frequencies. Measurement capabilities include audio level metering in dBFS, Nordic, BBC and DIN scales. Up to 16 audio channel bargraphs can be viewed simultaneously on the instrument’s 6.3 inch TFT LCD colour screen.
A variant of the LV5837, model LV5838, is available with the same feature set plus the ability to extract and measure audio from 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI signal streams.
Lastly, the Leader LV5980 17 inch SDI waveform and video monitor/analyser with 3D-Assist is designed for easy operation during live production, post-production and in technical support. Up to four SDI signals to be viewed simultaneously on its integral 17-inch TFT screen for rapid comparison of gain and black balance values from multiple cameras. Display capabilities include video signal waveform, vector and picture. A distinct waveform colour can be assigned to each input channel.
Additional display features include a level meter and Lissajous curves for embedded audio, transmission error indication, five-bar peak video signal level, 3D-Assist and Leader’s unique CINELITE. CINELITE allows the levels of specific points in an image to be checked and managed on an intuitive graphical basis which is equally appreciated by creatives and engineers.
