LV5900 8K waveform monitor

Leader's new LV5900 8K waveform monitor is designed for content producers, broadcasters and equipment manufacturers progressing into the Super Hi-Vision standard. The LV5900 provides full support for SMPTE ST2018-12 in 8192 × 4320 and 7680 × 4320 resolution plus 12G-SDI quad link. The instrument's feature set includes 8K colour bar and test pattern generation as well as four-input simultaneous display of HD video from HD to 3G-SDI and 4K video. The audio interface is compatible with MADI.


LT4610 adds 8K support

A new 8K option has been added to the LT4610 Video Sync Generator. The LT4610SER24 provides12G-SDI 8K pattern generation when integrated with the established LT4610SER02 expansion option.


LV5600 and LV7600 ‘true hybrid’ IP and SDI waveform and rasteriser

New for both the LV5600 and LV7600 is the 25GbE interface option (SER06). This allows support for uncompressed 4K/UHDTV video formats over IP. SER06 option supports SMPTE ST2110-20 (Video), ST2110-30 (Audio), ST2110-40 (ANC), and ST2059 PTP synchronization.

Also newfor the LV5600 and LV7600 is the IP test Pattern Generator option for use with the LV5600/LV7600-SER06. This combination supports transmission standards of IP corresponding to SMPTE ST 2110-20/30/31 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 for the LV5600 and LV7600 is the Signal to Noise Meter capability. The (SER30) option is designed for camera noise measurement, displaying the video noise included in luminance channel, or RGB components of an SDI source.
