dock10 Invests in Leader LV5600 for new UHD and HDR studios
Following recent investment in Leader LV7600 UHD HDR rasterisers for its UHD and HDR capable grading and finishing areas, 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, at Jigsaw24. “The LV5600 allows production and post production companies to check and compare all the essential parameters within a single compact instrument.”
