Leader Launches Video Camera and Image Test System
FS8681 compatible with all current video standards, including 4K
Leader Instruments has introduced the FS8681 video camera image inspection and evaluation system. Designed for use with a standard PC, the FS8681 allows efficient checking of characteristics such as image distortion, chroma phase and saturation, tonal characteristics, resolution, signal-to-noise-ratio and pixel-related defects.
Measurement sequences can be configured via an integral graphic user interface, allowing control of peripheral devices. Available displays include a measurement module window which is used to enter judgment criteria and other conditions as individual parameters. A measurement module window enables tests to be performed with specific conditions. Multiple tests can then be integrated using a measurement sequence editor, the results being shown in a measurement sequence execution display.
Leader specifies Blackmagic Design's Decklink Studio input/output board to interface cameras with the host PC. This enables direct connection of 3G/HD/SD-SDI, HDMI, NTSP/PAL, USB and IEEE 1394 sources. Recommended operating system is Microsoft Windows 7, 32 or 64 bit.
An optional chart box is available including a patented Leader chart which can be used to display camera resolution numerically. The product is now shipping.
