Leader’s new ZEN series

Leader’s new ZEN series

Leader Electronics Corporation has chosen IBC 2018 as the launch event for two powerful additions to its range of broadcast quality test and measurement products: the LV5600 true hybrid IP and SDI waveform monitor, and the LV7600 rasterising equivalent – both form part of Leader’s new ZEN series.

The Leader LV5600 is a mains-powered SDI/IP waveform monitor in a compact half-rack width 3U desktop chassis with a touch-screen front panel display. It provides all the facilities needed to monitor UHD/HD/SD SDI as well as video over IP signals seamlessly in a hybrid operating environment.

A broad set of engineering-related features are provided by the LV5600 including test pattern generation, eye pattern display, closed-caption monitoring, CIE colour chart, high dynamic range measurement, focus assist, customisable screen layout, tally interface, 4K/UHD operation, 10G IP input and 12G-SDI interfaces. SMPTE 2022-6, SMPTE 2022-7 and the recently published SMPTE 2110 protocols are all supported. The LV5600 also incorporates Leader’s intuitive CINEZONE and CINELITE which are familiar to many content production staff.

IP-specific features include the ability to monitor transmission errors such as packet loss and packet jitter, and to simultaneously measure and display SDI and IP signal sources.
