Leader LV5600 Waveform Monitors Power Italian Broadcasters Transition to IP-based UHD HDR posted: 13/05/2022

Leader ZEN Series LV5600 IP/SDI true-hybrid waveform monitor

Mediaset SpA, one of Italys 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 networks Milan and Rome production centers and on location. Eleven LV5600 units have been supplied by Leaders 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 Mediasets 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.

Leader LV5600 waveform monitors allow a very wide range of signal measurements to be performed quickly and accurately within a compact equipment footprint, adds CVE CEO Luca Catalano. Their small size and easy front-panel control make them ideal for freestanding or integrated use. Being able to handle IP and SDI in a single test environment is especially useful for todays largely hybrid media production world, augmented by the ability to configure the LV5600 display screen for easy comparison of several signal sources or multiple test parameters. Measurements can be viewed on the built-in monitor or fed via direct to an external screen for group viewing. Most important of all is repeatability: Leader measurements are consistent, easy to capture and easy to share.

The instruments requested by Mediaset included combinations of three options: the LV5600-SER05 10 gigabit/s IP interface, LV5600-SER23 HDR software license and LV5600-SER28 4K/UHD software license, details Djamel Djadi, Leaders European Business Development Manager. These enable customers to specify which hardware and firmware features they require when initially purchasing the waveform monitors, at the same time retaining the ability to add new functions or to accommodate new file formats and transmission protocols. 4K-UHD HDR is the logical format in which to create new program content given the increasing affordability of 4K-UHD consumer TV sets. IP networking is in turn gaining traction both for new-build production studios and, as at Mediaset, for existing studios looking to invest for the future.
