Leader Electronics is set to make a European launch for its LV5900 HD/4K/8K multi-standard waveform monitor at IBC 2019.
First announced at the Las Vegas NAB 2019 show in April, the LV5900 is designed for content producers, broadcasters and equipment manufacturers progressing into the super Hi-Vision standard.
Koichi Fukagawa, managing director, Leader Europe said: “8K is a forward-looking standard which will carry the television industry into an age of wall-sized display panels and ultra-realistic cinema-style home viewing.
“The LV5900 is designed for producers who want to create content in the highest possible technical quality, not least for OB companies covering the 2020 summer of sport for 8K broadcasters such as NHK.”
Housed in a half-rack-width by 4U high portable unit with a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution 9 inch front-panel monitor, the LV54900 is compatible with the SMPTE ST2082-12 standard which receives 8K images via 12G-SDI quad link.
Measurement capabilities include video signal waveform display, vector display, picture display, eye pattern display, five-bar display, CIE chromaticity display, freeze error detection, black error detection and gamut error detection.
Up to four inputs can be displayed simultaneously in various user-definable configurations, or one input signal can be displayed on multiple screens. Status display allows operators to check the status of errors at any instant or compile a record of events along a user-definable timeline. Enhanced data analysis can also be performed. Operators can graphically check the phase difference and sync status of incoming SDI video based on the external reference sync signal (black burst or tri-level sync).
