Europe’s Suite gets Leader test instruments
Soho-based Suite, with 17 online and outline post suites, has purchased Leader's LV7700 multistandard SDI rasterizing test instruments. Installed in the engineering support facility at Suite’s headquarters, the LV7700 is being used to allow HD as well as SD monitoring.
Suite is mainly using the instrument as a waveform monitor for broadcast-quality dubbing work. The rasterizing capability was important as a decently large LCD screen is much easier for its engineers to check from a distance than a small rack-mounted unit, which could only be viewed by a single operator located right in front of it.
Leader’s LV7700 rasterizer enables waveform, vector, picture, audio and status/protocol screens to be selected individually or as four-in-one simultaneous displays. Source images can be captured and stored for subsequent superimposition over live measurements. Once captured, source images can be transferred to Compact Flash memory card as a bitmap, for production applications such as stage set and position matching as well as proof-of-performance logging.
