dock10 chooses Leader LV7600 for 4K UHD  and HDR colour grading
dock10 in MediaCityUK has invested in two Leader LV7600 rasterising SDI/IP test instruments for its 4K/UHD and HDR capable grading and finishing areas. Both were supplied by Leader distribution partner Jigsaw24.
"Our clients increasingly need the ability to produce and deliver UHDTV/4K and HDR content," comments Brian Hardman, Head of Broadcast Operations for Post Production at dock10. "We are constantly exploring and testing new technologies that could enhance our post-production capabilities, including the test and measurement aspect. As part of this ongoing process, we were impressed by Leader’s rapid progress, especially when it comes to HDR, and identified Leader products as providing the quality we demand for our clients."
"When I looked at the Leader LV7600 rasterising waveform monitor, I was impressed," says Jamie Parry dock10's Senior Colourist. "The instrument provides all the features I am familiar with on my current test and measurement products. Leader's customisable display and Cinezone HDR real-time false-colour HDR display made working in HDR simple and easy. I don't know how anyone can work in HDR without the Cinezone HDR display. The LV7600 can also monitor SDR and HDR simultaneously, allowing me to check both versions of a production."
"Leader is now recognised throughout the industry as the go-to test and measurement equipment manufacturer for HDR productions," adds Leader Europe Business Development Manager Kevin Salvidge. "Our Cinezone HDR display allows operators to monitor and adjust HDR images in real time. Highly efficient and reliable, it is ideal for use even in the most demanding environments."
Leader's LV7600 is a rasterising SDI/IP waveform monitor in a 1U form-factor allowing easy rack-mounted, desk-mounted or desk-top operation. 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 provided by the LV5600 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 the recently published SMPTE 2110 protocols are all supported. The LV5600 also incorporates Leader's intuitive Cinezone and Cinelite which are familiar to many content producers.
Among the optional IP-specific features are the ability to monitor transmission errors such as packet loss and packet jitter and to simultaneously measure and display SDI and IP signal sources.
A companion instrument, Leader's LV5600 is a mains-powered SDI/IP waveform monitor offering the same features as the LV7600 but in a compact half-rack width 3U desktop chassis with a touch-screen front panel display.
