Innovative Product Unites SDI Features and IP Standards Interoperability to Support Facilities’ Migration Toward IP
YOKOHAMA, Japan — May 28, 2019 — Leader Electronics Corporation, a globally active producer of high-grade test and measurement solutions, earned a TV Technology Best of Show award at the 2019 NAB Show for the company’s LV5600 Zen Series waveform monitor. The LV5600 was recognized by a panel of industry experts for its innovation, feature set, cost efficiency, and performance in serving the industry.
“Our new LV5600 is an ideal solution for facilities moving from SDI to IP because it offers the familiar capabilities of tried-and-true SDI waveform monitors along with the option of upgrading to the latest IP standards and related monitoring capabilities,” said Pete Anderson, director of sales at Leader. “Facilities working across SDI and IP will also appreciate the LV5600’s unique ability to simultaneously show an SDI signal and IP signal side by side. All of these options and capabilities help broadcasters and other media facilities make a smarter and smoother transition toward IP.”
Introduced for the first time at InterBEE last November, Leader’s LV5600 was shown at the 2019 NAB Show with a new 25-GbE interface that enables it to support the SMPTE ST 2110 standard for 4K. To further enable the industry’s move toward IP infrastructure, the waveform monitor supports both SMPTE ST 2110 and the Advanced Media Workflow Association (AMWA) IS-04 and IS-05 specifications that define the carriage of professional media over IP networks.
The LV5600 has demonstrated interoperability with the latest IP standards through its participation in the JT-NM Tested program, which documents alignment of products with the SMPTE ST 2110 and ST 2059 standards. The Leader waveform monitor also is among the select products that interoperate with the Evertz MAGNUM orchestration and control system in an ST 2110 environment using AMWA IS-04 and IS-05.
The Leader LV5600 waveform monitor is now shipping. Leader soon will begin shipping its 8K-capable model, the LV5900 Zen Series waveform monitor, which made its debut at the 2019 NAB Show and also earned a TV Technology Best of Show award. The awards were announced by TV Technology on April 12 during the 2019 NAB Show in Las Vegas.
