KPN selects Leader waveform monitor for IP streaming OB vehicle
KPN, one of Holland's largest telecommunications service companies, has chosen Leader's LV5100D component digital waveform monitor for use in a newly upgraded Internet-streaming outside broadcast (OB) production vehicle.
From its base in Utrecht, the vehicle is offered for hire to provide live video coverage of KPN client events. These can then be streamed to audiences viewing via normal IP-connected Web browsers.
The LV5100D has two passive component serial digital input channels conforming to ITU-R656-1 and SMPTE 259M. An active output provides onward transmission of either input. A three-channel YUV/GBR analog input is also incorporated. Y or G chroma components can be viewed as a television image on an integral CRT. The positional relationship between a video signal and its corresponding image can be checked using an intensity-modulated display of a selected image line.
