Leader launches FS3140 quality-control software into US and Latin American broadcast markets

Leader Instruments announces an expansion in the availability of its FS3140 file-based quality-control software. Now available in the USA and Latin America, the FS3140 system will make its first US exhibition appearance at the 2014 NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 7-10.

"The FS3140 combines the waveform and vectorscope displays which experienced video engineers and creatives rely upon plus the most powerful automated QC software on the market," comments Leader's Product Marketing Manager Christian Young. "Designed for use in analyzing file-based video and audio, it can be deployed on a web-based Windows server, allowing easy rollout across Windows, OS X or Linux environments."

Control of the FS3140 is via an intuitive interface which allows QC parameters to be user-configured from a comprehensive portfolio of tests, many of which are unique to Leader. A test specification can quickly be imported into the FS3140 for customized content verification.

Fault reporting is generated in XML for easy reading. An integral media player gives fast access to the exact frame where an issue is identified, allowing efficient fault inspection and analysis.

A key feature of the FS3140 is its ability to identify issues which can be seen and heard. This is achieved using perception-based artifact detection, multi-level block-noise analysis, black-frame detection, freeze-frame detection, silence detection and filtered audio noise sensors.

Other file characteristics which can be checked with the FS3140 include metadata, macroblock noise, letterboxing, pillarboxing, profane captions, blurring, comb artifacts, field swaps, peak audio levels, test tones, audio transients, channel phase, average loudness and mono-in-stereo.

HD file-checking is real-time or faster on approved PC hardware with multi-core CPU support and NVIDIA® CUDA graphic technology. SD files can be processed at 2 to 5 times faster than real-time.

The basic system has one verification unit to test one file at a time. QC capacity can be expanded without limit by adding verification units on the same physical machine or on separate physical or virtual machines.

The Leader FS3140 is compatible with a very wide range of codecs including H.264, ProRes, JPEG 2000, RED, MPEG-2, EXR, Cineform, VC-1, WMV, DV/DVCPro, DPX, Flash VP-6/7 and RAW. Audio codecs supported include PCM (WAV/AES/BWF), Dolby Digital (AC-3), DD+ (EAC-3), Dolby TrueHD (MLP), Dolby E, AAC, HE-AAC, MPEG- 2 (L1, 2, 3), WMA Standard/Pro and MPEG-1.

With the introduction of the FS3140 into the US and Latin America, the distribution partnership between Leader and VidCheck is now discontinued.

Leader Instruments will demonstrate the FS3140 on booth C9511 (Central Hall) at NAB Show 2014, Las Vegas Convention Center, April 7-10.

Cobalt Digital Targets Need for Multiple Video Feeds with openGear 9905 MPx Multi-Channel Processor Posted: 12/10/2021
Cobalt and reg; Digital Targets Need for Multiple Video Feeds with openGear and reg; 9905 MPx Multi-Channel Processor

Cobalt® Digital, an industry-leading designer and manufacturer of award-winning edge devices for live video production and master control, and a founding partner in the openGear® initiative, has answered the need for handling and processing multiple video feeds with its 9905-MPx multi-channel processor. The 9905-MPx is a next-generation advanced scaler/frame openGear synchronizer developed in direct response to customer needs for a single module that supports four independent signal paths. The card was highlighted during a press briefing held virtually on October 6th and hosted by Suzana Brady, Cobalt’s SVP Worldwide Sales & Marketing, who noted that the 9905-MPx was developed in response to customer requests for increased density, unprecedented multi-input support, and enhanced flexibility. The event also featured presentations by Dr. Ciro Noronha, EVP of Engineering, and Ryan Wallenberg, VP of Engineering. The 9905-MPx, an audio/video processor for baseband digital signals, is capable of handling up to four independent 3G signals in a single, dense, cost-effective package that provides all common broadcast processing functions without any quality compromises. The card includes individual up/down/cross conversion scalers that are specifically designed for broadcast video formats, with full ARC control suitable for conversions to/from 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios. The multi-path design offers discrete AES and MADI audio embedding/routing/mixing/de-embedding to any of the four processing paths. Standard 3D LUT features and available color correction accommodate SDR and HDR processing for downstream HDR systems, on a per-channel basis. The card also supports per-channel logo insertion, as well as ancillary data insertion/extraction.
