The latest addition to the Leader range of broadcast test instruments, the LT440 multiformat generator is a compact master sync and test pattern generator with a wide range of applications in HD/SD video production, post-production and nonlinear editing. It can generate HD-SDI tri-level sync as well as composite and SDI black simultaneously via six outputs arranged as three pairs. Each of the three pairs is independently controllable, including black-burst (PAL or NTSC) with independent timing. Genlock recovery features are also available to match the requirements of specific systems.


"The LT4400 meets the multiformat requirements of modern HD/SD studios, OB facilities and post-production workstations," comments Paul Vos, managing director of elQuip BV, Broadcast Master Distributor for Leader Electronics Corporation in Europe. "In addition to its sync-generation capabilities, it provides HD SDI and SD-SDI test patterns including colour bars and checkerboard. A logo bug and up to 16 characters of source identification can be superimposed on the test pattern output. Up to 16 channels of user-assignable audio tones or click can be embedded."


The LT4400 is 1 U high, half-rack width, and will operate standalone or rack-mounted. It can be controlled via front panel pushbuttons and backlit LCD display or remotely via Ethernet. A plug-in-memory card enables user settings to be stored within the unit or separately. Power supply is via a universal mains adapter or directly input 10-16V DC.


Founded in 1978, elQuip BV specialises in providing high-quality products for broadcasters, post-production facilities, edit suites and electronic equipment manufacturers. elQuip is Broadcast Master Distributor for Leader Electronics Corporation in Europe.
