Big Pic Media relies on Leader’s connectivity tools at its booth at the Media Production and Technology Show

Big Pic Media is attending to the May 11th-12th Media Production & Technology Show at Olympia London. Leader Electronics will form the signal evaluation core of an end-to-end 4K HDR post-production workflow demonstration on the company’s stand (L326). Big Pic Media advises on and supplies solutions ranging in scale from individual items to fully integrated suites.

The demo system will include a Leader LV5350 waveform monitor and LV7600 rasterizer. The LV5350 provides all the tools needed for high-grade signal measurement in a portable unit. The LV7600 rasterizer creates content for satellite and terrestrial broadcasters as well as the rapidly growing OTT sector.

Leader’s LV5350 is a mains or battery powered 3U high half-rack-width short-depth waveform monitor. It comes with a range of tools plus Leader’s CINEZONE and CINELITE. All features are accessible from the front control panel, augmented by a 1920 x 1080 resolution 7 inch touchscreen TFT LCD monitor. A focus detection option allows the instrument to sense edges across a wide range of image contrast levels. Additional options include 4K/UHD support, 12G-SDI interfaces, SDI-embedded audio analysis, SDI signal generation, CIE chroma chart, HDR measurement, customized display layout, tally display, extended chroma vector display and closed-caption display.

The Leader LV7300 rasterizer comes in a 1U half-rack footprint. It supports SDI signals from SD through 12G and includes physical layer testing. The instrument’s waveform, vector, picture, audio, and eye pattern displays enable comprehensive measurement and quality control of a wide range of audio and video formats. The status display allows errors and system stability to be assessed with both event logs and long-term charts. SDI-embedded audio can be shown on the Lissajous, level and status displays. The LV7300 can be powered from AC or DC.

“Presentations of this kind are extremely useful as they give existing and potential customers the opportunity to experience the latest technology as part of fully operational system,” says Kevin Salvidge,” Sales Engineering Manager at Leader Europe. “4K HDR is capable of delivering hugely impressive quality if handled correctly from the point of capture and onward through the editing and shading stages. Adam Welsh and his BPM colleagues will be demonstrating a complete 4K HDR workflow from onset dailies through to quality control and mastering of the final deliverable.”
