Leader LV5600 Test Instruments Chosen for TVNs UE6 4K HDR OB Truck

TVN MOBILE PRODUCTION has chosen Leader LV5600 test instruments as the technical reference for its newly completed UE6 4K HDR OB truck, reported to be the largest of its kind in Europe. Built in partnership between TVN and Sony, the vehicle is optimised for high quality UHD, HD and mixed format production in both HDR and SDR. Its first deployment was at the Northern Ireland v Germany UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier in Belfast in September.

 
"Leader's LV5600 provides all the test and measurement facilities we need both in the SDI and IP domains," says TVN CEO Markus Osthaus. "We have invested in three units – one for each of our production galleries and the third for the associated tender vehicle. The instruments pack a lot of features into a very compact space, including 4K, HD, HDR and SDR signal analysis. They are particularly useful for matching incoming video feeds including up to 30 Sony HDC-4300 UHD cameras."
 
""Shooting in 4K UHD requires very precise signal monitoring from the the initial point of capture right through the production and post-production chain," adds Leader's European Regional Development Manager, Kelvin Salvidge. "The LV5600 and its LV7600 rasterising equivalent are no-compromise test instruments which we see becoming the reference of choice both in the mobile and studio-based markets. Their ability to handle SDI and IP makes them truly future-proof."
 
Leader's LV5600 is a mains-powered SDI/IP waveform monitor in a half-rack width 3U desktop chassis with a touch-screen front panel display. It provides all the facilities needed to monitor UHD/HD/SD SDI as well as video-over-IP signals seamlessly in a hybrid operating environment. Engineering-related features include test pattern generation, eye pattern display, closed-caption monitoring, CIE colour chart, high dynamic range measurement, focus assist, customisable screen layout, tally interface, 4K/UHD operation, 10G IP input and 12G-SDI interfaces. SMPTE 2022-6, SMPTE 2022-7 and SMPTE 2110 protocols are all supported. The LV5600 also incorporates Leader's intuitive Cinezone and Cinelite which are familiar to many content production staff.

Densitron and Sonifex announce audio and video display development collaboration Posted: 15/10/2019
Densitron and Sonifex announce audio and video display development collaboration
Densitron, a creator of HMI technologies, Broadcast intelligent display solutions, and a global leader in display, monitor, and embedded computing solutions and Sonifex, which manufactures broadcast audio equipment for radio, TV, and telecommunications, have announced a joint technical development initiative designed to tightly integrate Sonifex audio displays with a number of flagship Densitron reference monitors.

 

Densitron’s smartphone-like clarity and in-plane switching (IPS) technology is being modified to integrate with a new range of Sonifex devices soon to be unveiled.

 
However, Sonifex’s new Dante® AVN-CU2 and AVN-CU4 commentary units as well as its AVN multi-channel audio mix engines already now use Densitron colour LCD displays.
 
Sonifex CEO Marcus Brooke said, “We always actively seek opportunities to provide additional benefits to our customers and are particularly excited about sharing our latest audio interface and commentary unit developments with similar enhancements from Densitron. The integration of our respective technologies are significant value-adds to both product ranges.”
