ZDF acquires Leader rasterizers
Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen (ZDF), one of the largest broadcasters on the European mainland, has chosen Leader's LV7700 rasterizing digital multistandard waveform monitor for use at its headquarters in Mainz, Germany.
ZDF is using the instruments for a variety of roles; however, most are installed in graphics and nonlinear editing suites.
Leader's LV7700 rasterizer provides multistandard waveform monitor and vectorscope functions, including cursor measurements, filters, gain and timing control. Line-select capabilities allow detailed signal examination.
Safe-action, safe-title and aspect-ratio markers can be superimposed over the picture display. Waveform, vector, picture, audio and status/protocol screens can be selected individually or as 4-in-1 simultaneous displays.
Based in Mainz, ZDF transmits in analog and digital via cable, satellite and terrestrial antenna.
