Bavaria’s BR chooses Leader LV7700 rasterizers

Bavarian state broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk (BR) has selected Leader LV7700 rasterizing digital multistandard waveform monitors for use in each of three new video post-production suites at its regional studios in Vienna.

Each suite is equipped for HD-SDI and SD-SDI operation in preparation for the gradual introduction of 1080i transmissions. BR's Vienna studios are used to prepare news, documentary and cultural programs from Austria.

The rasterizers will enable monitoring of signal quality throughout each suite including signal flow from legacy VTRs to Avid nonlinear edit suites

In addition to its waveform monitor and vectorscope functions, the LV7700 includes cursor measurement facilities, filters, gain and timing control. A line-select feature permits detailed signal examination.
