Test and Measurement Solutions for the Globally Evolving Broadcast Media Market

" 'The only constant in life is change' sounds like a phrase created to define the electronics industry," says Leader Electronics President Kozo Nagao summarizing highlights of the company's 2022 activity. "It is usually attributed to Greek philosopher Heraclitus who flourished 2,700 years ago. Leader is in that context comparatively young but has lived up to its name since its formation in the early 1950s. An ongoing change which largely defined 2022 in the broadcast media business was the accelerating adoption of IP-based system infrastructure. The main theme of our exhibit at the April 2022 NAB Show in Las Vegas was 'Making Your SDI/IP Transition Smooth'." Early in Q3, we announced major additions to the feature set of the Leader LVB440 IP Analyzer. These expand the analyzer's IP traffic and signal monitoring resources by adding signal generation tools plus the ability to monitor and analyze SR Live Metadata."

ITN Post Productions Chooses Leader LV7600 Reference Test Instrument for New 4K-DCI UHD-TV HDR Editing, Grading and QC Suite

ITN Productions has purchased a Leader LV7600 12G-SDI rasterizing waveform monitor as the primary reference for a newly completed 4K DCI facility at ITN's Central London headquarters. The LV7600 was supplied and integrated by Leader Europe channel distribution partner Jigsaw24.

"Demand for programmes originated in 4K/DCI/HDR is steadily increasing, both for linear broadcasting and on-demand OTT viewing," says James Bennett, Head of Technical Operations, Post Production, at ITN Productions.

"The trigger for choosing Leader was the company's long-established and reputation for high quality test and measurement products. Jigsaw24 recommended the Leader LV7600 rasterizing waveform monitor for its precise and repeatable performance, versatile toolset and future-proof modularity. We have already used it to deliver our first programme and it has been crucial in getting episodes to specification and accepted through the OTT's QC process."

Leader LV5600 Waveform Monitors Power Italian Broadcasters Transition to IP-based UHD HDR Posted: 22/04/2022
Leader LV5600 Waveform Monitors Power Italian Broadcasters Transition to IP-based UHD HDR

Mediaset SpA, one of Italy's most active broadcasters, has chosen Leader ZEN Series LV5600 waveform monitors for integration into two fully-IP-interfaced mobile control vehicles and also for some MCR and studio applications. The vehicles are configured to operate alongside the network's Milan and Rome production centers and on location. Eleven LV5600 units have been supplied by Leader's Italian distribution partner, Communication Video Engineering (CVE).

"Our aim is to deploy a fully IP infrastructure for the transmission of signals between our various studio, fixed and mobile facilities," comments Mauro Cassanmagnago, Director of Mediaset's Production & Broadcasting Technologies department. "This will allow uncompressed baseband signals up to and including UHD to be made available to all relevant staff simply without having to route audio, video, data and intercom signals separately. Our IP-connected galleries will be even be able to handle remote productions."
