Leader Electronics Europe has announced a major new option for the Leader LV7390 4K-upgradable 3G/HD/SD SDI rasterizer. The new LV7390-OP20 4K upgrade allows the LV7390 to support 4K/UHD program production and post as well as 4x3G HD-SDI.
"HDR does not come in one universal standard so is a potential nightmare for any producers who want to deploy this new technology to improve the look and feel of their production," says Kevin Salvidge, Leader's European regional development manager. The upgrade includes high dynamic range measurement capabilities for the ITU.BT.2100 Hybrid Log Gamma, Dolby PQ and Sony SLOG-3 protocols. This capability plus a compact 1U form-factor makes the LV7390 ideal for production environments that cannot accommodate a full size waveform monitor."
Also included with the 4K HDR upgrade is Leader's CineZone HDR. This uses false color to display areas of the image extending into HDR so can be used on non-HDR monitors. Potential issues can be identified quickly and easily without demanding specialist technical experience. CineZone HDR reduces the need for re-takes or costly additional hours in post-production. It allows producers to acquire content in HDR whilst being able ensure that content will not require additional re-working for standard dynamic range distribution. The CineZone HDR option also supports HD formats.
Customers can purchase the 4K/HDR upgrade when their businesses require it without having to return the LV7390 to Leader or to an authorized service centre.
The Leader LV7390 is a compact 1U 3G/HD/SD-SDI rasterizer, which can be used to measure up to four source channels simultaneously. It can be deployed for desktop or rack-mounted operation. Designed for easy connection into 3G-SDI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI systems, the LV7390 incorporates full-resolution 3G/HD-SDI and DVI-I rasterized outputs which allow detailed video and audio parameters be checked on a separate monitor in full 1920 x 1080 HD resolution.
