The LV5900 provides full support for SMPTE ST2082-12 in 8192 × 4320 and 7680 × 4320 resolution plus 12G-SDI quad link. The instrument’s feature set includes 8K colour bar and test pattern generation as well as four-input simultaneous display of HD video from HD to 3G-SDI and 4K video. The audio interface is compatible with MADI.

NEW: 8K option for LEADER LT4610 sync generator

A new 8K option for the Leader LT4610 sync generator, The LT4610SER24 provides 12G-SDI 8K pattern generation when integrated with the established LT4610SER02 expansion option.

NEW: 4K-IP-compatibility options for LV5600 and LV7600

Leader’s LV5600-SER06 is a new 4K-IP-compatible option for the LV5600 waveform monitor. Option LV7600-SER06 is its equivalent for the LV7600 rasteriser. Both options provide full conformance with the SMPTE 2110 standard for transmitting 4K content in a non-compressed format at up to 25 gigabits per second. ST 2110-20 audio, ST2110-40 auxiliary data and ST2059 PTP sync specifications are all fully supported.

NEW: 25G IP test signal generator option for LV5600 and LV7600

Also new for the LV5600 and LV7600 is the LV5600-SER32/LV7600-SER32 25G IP test signal generator option. Supporting transmission standards of IP corresponding to SMPTE ST 2110-20/30/31 and /40, the video signal can generate test patterns of HD through to UHDTV (3840 x 2160). Stress testing of network infrastructure is possible by the addition of packet errors and packet jitter.

NEW: Camera noise measurement option for LV5600 and LV7600

Additionally being introduced for the LV5600 waveform monitor and LV7600 rasterizer is the LV5600-SER30/LV7600-SER30 option. This is designed for camera noise measurement, displaying the video noise included in the luminance channel or RGB components of an SDI source.
