IBC NEWS PHABRIX Leader Instruments 8.A22 L eader Instruments’ LV 5980 SDI waveform and video monitor makes its European debut at IBC2012. Designed for easy use during live production, post-production and in technical support, the LV 5980 incorporates a 17-inch TFT display that can be used to monitor up to four SDI signals simultaneously in a vertical or horizontal row, allowing rapid comparison of gain and black balance values from multiple cameras. Video signal waveform, vector display, picture and multiple input signals can be displayed simultaneously. The LV 5980 can make multiple waveforms easier to identify by using a different waveform colour for each input channel. www.leaderuk.co.uk 8.E29 P HABRIX will be making much out of the success it has experienced with the new Dolby E support now available throughout its test and measurement range at IBC this year. Originally released for its popular PHABRIX Sx hand held test and measurement instruments support for Dolby E has now been made available on the newest of its product releases - the Rx modular rack mount instruments. Key to the success of the new functionality is the amalgamation of the Dolby analysis within the video toolset. An engineer can now have a very portable handheld tool with both audio and video test and measurement tools for generation, analysis and monitoring. Dolby-E meta data present in a selected audio stream is displayed and determines whether the Dolby-E packet is timed correctly on the SDI video stream. The Dolby-E may also be monitored from any of the SDI input embedded audio channel pairs or the AES input. V Bit information and PCM values along with a snapshot of the Dolby E metadata if a Dolby E signal is present forms part of the main display. The Dolby-E metadata screen carries primary information including signal source, Dolby-E guard band timing, CRC errors, program channel and metadata detail. In combination with the world’s first Dolby generator as part of a closed loop solution, PHABRIX continues to develop comprehensive support for all Dolby standards. www.phabrix.com Wowza Media Systems 14.162 A t IBC2012, Wowza unveils the latest enhancements to its multi-award- winning media server software.
