Leader demonstrates new broadcast signal analyzer
Leader Electronics is demonstrating its new LV5800 modular multiformat broadcast signal analyzer this week at Video Forum 2007 in London.
The unit enables four SDI or HD-SDI sources to be viewed simultaneously. This capability reduces the time required to compare incoming signal feeds and simplifies the task of identifying a defective signal or channel. The LV5800 has twin auto-detecting inputs and is compliant with all HD-SDI and SD-SDI standards, including 1080p/50 via Dual Link.
The intuitive user interface of the LV5700 and LV5750 is retained in the LV5800. This operational standardization has proved popular with program producers, post-production facilities and broadcasters because it allows staff to migrate easily from one instrument to another without having to learn a new set of operating routines.
The LV5800's front panel, including a high-resolution 1024 x 768 pixel XGA display, can be detached from the main body and mounted directly to the back of a camera or to the wall of a mobile production vehicle. This eliminates the need to house the entire rack behind the mounting surface.
