Leader to display 4K-IP and 8K compatible products at BroadcastAsia

Leader Electronics will present the latest additions to its range of test and measurement products and options at BroadcastAsia in Singapore which will run from 18-20 June 2019.

The manufacturer will display the new LV5900 8K waveform monitor and a new 8K option for the LT4610 sync generator.

Leader will also introduce a new 4K-IP-compatible option for the LV5600 waveform monitor and additional options for the LV5600 and LV7600.

Leader representatives at the 4R4-06 show stand will include Mac Tani from company’s Yokohama headquarters, Masayoshi Ishihara from Leader’s APAC sales and support office in Singapore and India/Middle-East/Africa Country Manager Umesh Tyagi.

The new LV5900 8K waveform monitor that made its debut at the April 2019 NAB Show in Las Vegas will on display for content producers, broadcasters and equipment manufacturers progressing into the Super Hi-Vision standard.

The LV5900 provides full support for SMPTE ST2082-12 in 8192 × 4320 and 7680 × 4320 resolution plus 12G-SDI quad link.

The instrument’s features include an 8K colour bar and test pattern generation as well as a four-input simultaneous display of HD video from HD to 3G-SDI and 4K video. The audio interface is compatible with MADI.

The LT4610SER24 which is a new 8K option for the Leader LT4610 sync generator provides 12G-SDI 8K pattern generation when integrated with the established LT4610SER02 expansion option.

Leader’s LV5600-SER06 is a new 4K-IP-compatible option for the LV5600 waveform monitor. Option LV7600-SER06 is its equivalent for the LV7600 rasterizer. Both options provide full conformance with the SMPTE 2110 standard for transmitting 4K content in a non-compressed format at up to 25 gigabits per second. ST 2110-20 audio, ST2110-40 auxiliary data and ST2059 PTP sync specifications are all fully supported.

Another new option being introduced for the LV5600 and LV7600 is the LV5600-SER32/LV7600-SER32 25G IP test signal generator option. Supporting transmission standards of IP corresponding to SMPTE ST 2110-20/30/31 and /40, the video signal can generate test patterns of HD through to UHDTV (3840 x 2160). Stress testing of network infrastructure is possible by the addition of packet errors and packet jitter.

The LV5600-SER30/LV7600-SER30 is another new function for the LV5600 waveform monitor and LV7600 rasterizer. This feature is designed for camera noise measurement, displaying the video noise included in the luminance channel or RGB components of an SDI source.

With these enhancements, Leader promises to enable customers to manage transitions both from SDI to IP and from SD and HD right through to 4K and 8K.
