EMG opts for Leader LV7300 rasterisers for new mobile production vehicles
EMG has chosen Leader multiscreen rasterising waveform monitors for integration into three new OB vehicles. A total of 16 LV7300 rasterisers, supplied by Leader channel partner Thameside.TV, will be used for master reference during live transmissions and related post-production.
“Leader test instruments have been our preferred choice for nearly 10 years,” said Paul Francis, director of engineering, EMG. “They have proved consistently reliable, accurate and operator friendly. Many of the projects we work on are very large scale with feeds sometimes exceeding 100 cameras. Precise and repeatable monitoring of video signal flow is vital to ensure accurate matching of camera channels. The LV7300 rasterisers also ensure that we maintain the full available video and audio dynamic range from source right through to output.
“The rasterisers are connected to large-screen monitors which allow easy inspection of displayed detail. The LV7300 has a similar menu structure to Leader instruments in our other OB vehicles so operators can move freely between them. Multiple display tools can be combined in a single screen view to allow easy side-by-side comparison of related parameters or channels.”
“Leader products like the LV7300 are providing production companies with simple and elegant test and measurement solutions that allow them to monitor and analyse multiple camera sources easily and efficiently,” said Kevin Salvidge, sales engineering & technical marketing manager at Leader Europe. “They also allow easy upgrade from HD to UHD and SDR to HDR if or when required.”
“Leader test instruments continue to live up to their reputation as the Swiss Army knives of the broadcast video and audio production industry,” added Thameside.tv sales manager Chris Margrave-Gregory. “The LV7300 incorporates a versatile selection of inspection resources into its compact footprint while still maintaining Leader’s hallmark robust build quality. All 16 instruments can be upgraded to 4K and HDR at any time in the future via Leader’s Zen series software unlocking path.”
Leader LV7300 rasterisers come in a 1U half-rack footprint. They provide signal generation plus a wide range of measurement tools and support SDI signals from SD through to 12G.
