Leader launched its latest developments at IBC 2023

Leader Electronics showcased its solutions and new devices at IBC 2023

Among new additions IBC visitors could watch and test LT4670 SDI/IP reference and test signal generator, expanded LVB440 IP analyzer, plus JPEG XS QC options for the LV5600 and LV7600

Leader Electronics, company based in Taiwan, China, has recently closed its report about IBC 2023, and these are their conclusions: at 2023 International Broadcasting Convention, visitor numbers substantially went up on the 2022 figure. Claimed attendance was around 43,000 registrants from 170 countries, 6,000 higher than the 2022 total.

Leader Electronics introduced at IBC 2023 the following solutions and updates:

NEW: Leader LT4670 SDI/IP reference and test signal generator

Leader’s LT4670 is a 1U full-rack width synchronous SDI/IP reference and test signal generator. It comes with a wide range of tools augmented by options. The standard LT4670 toolset includes genlocked black burst signals and tri-level sync pulse generation; stay-in-sync function in the event of an error in the incoming genlock signal; low-lock stabilization when returning to genlock from stay-in-sync; 48 kHz word-clock signal output synchronized to incoming video, and synchronous control between devices (L-SYNC). 

ENHANCED: Leader LVB440 IP analyzer with expanded toolset 

Designed for use across a wide range of IP-connected broadcast production or content distribution environments, the Leader LVB440 can be accessed locally or remotely by up to eight users at the same time via a standard HTML-5 web browser. Applications include monitoring and analyzing high-bitrate media traffic in broadcast studios, OB vehicles, remote production facilities, master control environments and transmission networks. 

The new additions include an extended audio toolset supporting all current Dolby™ standards, enhanced event logging capabilities and a supplementary information display giving operators advice relevant to each measurement.

IBC DEBUT: JPEG XS quality control options for LV5600 waveform monitor and LV7600 rasterizer

Also making its IBC debut was option LV5600-SER33 for the Leader LV5600 waveform monitor and its LV7600-SER33 equivalent for the Leader LV7600 rasterizer. The SER33 toolset offers tv broadcast production teams the resources they need to check the quality of their JPEG XS feeds during pre-transmission system alignment and live content delivery. Incoming JPEG XS signal streams can be decoded within the test instrument for comparison with uncompressed sources using the multiscreen facilities common to the LV5600 and LV7600. The toolset also includes a JPEG XS test pattern generator. JPEG XS compresses the data volume by up to 15:1, dependent on the amount of detail and movement in the transmitted image. It includes HDR compatibility and can accommodate bit depths of up to 16 bits per component channel. The protocol also offers a high level of multi-generation encoding/decoding robustness.
