Leader Electronics Corporation announce significant enhancements to the ZEN series, that was successfully launched at last years’ NAB show.
Leader is also launching its first 8K compatible test and measurement products.
As the broadcast industry’s use of IP matures, the JT-NM Tested program offers prospective purchasers of IP based equipment greater, and more documented insight into how vendors equipment conforms to SMPTE ST 2110 and SMPTE 2059 standards. Leader will be presenting on September. 15th at 11:30am at the IP Showcase E106/7.
IP Test and Measurement for ST.2110 Systems
‘True Hybrid’ IP and SDI test and measurement capabilities make them the ideal solutions for broadcasters as they starting the migration from SDI to IP infrastructures. Both instruments provide simultaneous capabilities for IP and SDI sources. For more information please visit and download the Broadcast Bridge’s Essential Guide to Hybrid IP and SDI Test and Measurement.
Essential Guide to Hybrid IP and SDI Test and Measurement
New for both the LV5600 and LV7600 is the 25GbE interface option (SER06). This allows support for uncompressed UHDTV video formats over IP. The SER06 option supports SMPTE ST2110-20 (Video), ST2110-30 (Audio), ST2110-40 (ANC), and ST2059 PTP synchronisation.
Also new for the LV5600 and LV7600 is the IP test pattern generator option (SER32) for use with the option LV5600/LV7600-SER06. This combination supports IP transmission standards corresponding to SMPTE ST 2110-20/30 and /40. The video signal generate can create test patterns in HD through to UHDTV (3840 x 2160). Stress testing of network infrastructure is made possible by the addition of packet errors and packet jitter.
NMOS IS-04 and IS-05 are now available as standard on both the LV5600 and LV7600, enabling seamless integration into managed networks.
Also being introduced to the LV5600 and LV7600 is a signal to noise meter capability. The (SER30) option is designed for camera noise measurement, displaying the video noise included in the luminance channel, or RGB components of an SDI source.
Enhancements to Leader Zen Series
SER03 / SER20 – Lip sync display measurement display and test signal Generator SER24, enable engineers to easily identify timing differences between video and audio in both frames and milliseconds.
Test signal generator SER24, also features an HDR test pattern as well as OEFT for BT-709, HLG and PQ. Thus, allowing facilities to ensure that HDR monitors are correctly setup, prior to any HDR
SER24 – High Dynamic Range allows multiple ‘Transfer Characteristics’ to be displayed simultaneously in HD, allowing vision engineers to monitor both HDR and SDR images simultaneously.
