Leader has test role in TVN’s new UE6 4K HDR OB truck
TVN Mobile Production chose Leader LV5600 test instruments as the technical reference for its newly completed UE6 4K HDR OB truck, reported to be the largest of its kind in Europe.
Built in partnership between TVN and Sony, the vehicle is optimised for high quality UHD, HD and mixed format production in both HDR and SDR. Its first deployment was at the Northern Ireland v Germany UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier in Belfast in September.
“Leader’s LV5600 provides all the test and measurement facilities we need both in the SDI and IP domains,” said TVN CEO Markus Osthaus. “We have invested in three units – one for each of our production galleries and the third for the associated tender vehicle. The instruments pack a lot of features into a very compact space, including 4K, HD, HDR and SDR signal analysis. They are particularly useful for matching incoming video feeds including up to 30 Sony HDC-4300 UHD cameras.”
“Shooting in 4K UHD requires very precise signal monitoring from the the initial point of capture right through the production and post-production chain,” added Leader’s European regional development manager, Kelvin Salvidge. “The LV5600 and its LV7600 rasterising equivalent are no-compromise test instruments which we see becoming the reference of choice both in the mobile and studio-based markets. Their ability to handle SDI and IP makes them truly future-proof.”
