Leader Electronics Europe announces a major new option for the Leader LV7390 4K-upgradable 3G/HD/SD SDI rasterizer. The new LV7390-OP20 4K upgrade allows the LV7390 to support 4K/UHD programme production and post as well as 4x3G HD-SDI. New upgrade includes high dynamic range measurement capabilities for the ITU.BT.2100 Hybrid Log Gamma, Dolby PQ and Sony SLOG-3 protocols.
"HDR does not come in one universal standard so is a potential nightmare for any producers who want to deploy this new technology to improve the look and feel of their production," says Kevin Salvidge, Leader's European Regional Development Manager.
"ITU.BT2100 Hybrid Log Gamma was jointly developed by the BBC in the UK and NHK in Japan. It is a royalty-free open approach specifying the system parameters essential for extended image dynamic range television. These include system colorimetry, signal format and digital representation.
"Dolby PQ is a license-based proprietary standard. It uses the SMPTE 2084 electro-optical transfer function and has a peak brightness that can go as high as 10,000 nits.
"Sony's SLOG3 is being introduced across the Sony range of broadcast and professional cameras and monitors."
"The upgrade includes high dynamic range measurement capabilities for the ITU.BT.2100 Hybrid Log Gamma, Dolby PQ and Sony SLOG-3 protocols. This capability plus a compact 1U form-factor makes the LV7390 ideal for production environments that cannot accommodate a full size waveform monitor."
Customers can purchase the 4K/HDR upgrade when their businesses require it without having to return the LV7390 to Leader or to an authorised service centre.
The Leader LV7390 is a compact 1U 3G/HD/SD-SDI rasterizer which can be used to measure up to four source channels simultaneously. Designed for easy connection into 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI systems, the LV7390 incorporates full-resolution 3G/HD-SDI and DVI-I rasterized outputs which allow detailed video and audio parameters be checked on a separate monitor in full 1920 x 1080 HD resolution.
The LV7390 can be configured by the operator to display waveform, vector, picture, audio and SDI status. Display layout is customisable from a wide range of available settings including individual full screen or user-defined combinations. These settings can be configured from the front panel or via a USB pointing device and saved for fast recall. 60 user-definable presets are accessible.
