Lithuania’s national public broadcaster orders Leader digital waveform monitors

Lithuanian National Radio and Television (LRT), Lithuania’s national public broadcaster, has ordered six Leader LV5100D digital waveform monitors for its headquarters in Vilnius. The instruments will be used to check ingest and output signal quality in a new file-based automated digital archiving and playout system currently being installed.

A long-time customer of Leader LV5100D digital waveform monitors, the new purchase is part of one of the largest installations ever undertaken at LRT. The project includes robotics, telecine and playout control suites for three channels and is due to be completed by early next year.

The LV5100D enables easy analysis of color vectors and includes an EDH measurement facility to monitor serial transmission error. It accepts dual passive component serial digital input channels conforming to ITU-R656-1 and SMPTE 259M. An active output provides onward transmission of either input. A three-channel YUV/GBR analog input is also incorporated. In addition, Leader’s patented equivalent-cable-length measurement function allows signal levels to be viewed in a form providing intuitive guidance against cliff-edge channel transmission path failure.

The contract was negotiated by TV & Communication Systems (TVC), a partner of elQuip BV, the exclusive broadcast master distributor for Leader Electronics in Europe.
