The LV5770A Waveform Monitor for 3G/HD/SD SDI Signals with SDI Input Card from Leader is a multi-SDI monitor that can monitor two 3G/HD/SD-SDI sources simultaneously and displays Picture, Waveform, Vector, 5-Bar, CINELITE II, and Status individually or in various screen combinations. Loudness, lip-sync, surround monitoring audio centric features are integrated in this monitor.

The 1-screen display feature can be used to show each of the different displays on a single screen, or the 4-screen multi display feature can be used to divide the screen into four areas with a different display shown in each area. The video signal waveform display, picture display, audio level meter display, and histogram display can be shown as a thumbnail display on the 1-screen display.

A screen capture feature that captures the screen as still images, a frame capture feature that captures single frames of SDI signals, and an error capture feature that automatically detects and captures error frames are available. Not only can captured data be displayed by the LV 5770A, but it can also be compared with an input signal or saved to a USB memory device. It is easy to view the saved data on a PC.

The LCD display is a 6.3" XGA screen (the effective resolution is 1024 × 768). In addition, the screen images are transmitted from a DVI-D connector that supports single link TMDS, so the screen image can be displayed larger than is possible on the LV 5770A through the use of an external LCD.

The input SDI signal can be generated as an 8-bit signal. Regardless of the SDI input signal, the output format can be set to YCBCR 4:2:2, YCBCR 4:4:4, or RGB 4:4:4. 3D video signals can be evaluated by applying the video signal for the left eye to channel A and the video signal for the right eye to channel B. The available picture display formats are anaglyph, convergence, overlay, wipe, checker, and flicker.

You can use the cursor to select any 3 points and display their luminance information using f-Stop numbers, percentage values, or level values. You can choose to analyze a single pixel or a small area by setting the size of the measured area to 1 pixel or to the average value for 9 or 81 pixels. You can display the luminance levels in the picture with different colors. This allows you to quickly determine the overall luminance distribution in the picture, and it makes it easy to spot overexposure, underexposure, and different luminance levels in dark areas.

On the status display, SDI signal transmission errors and various errors related to the embedded audio signal and ancillary data can be detected. In addition, the LV 5770A has event log, data dump, and external sync signal and SDI signal phase difference display features for analyzing SDI signals. Ancillary data is displayed along with the embedded line numbers and numbers of the corresponding standards in a list. This makes it possible to display detailed analyses.

The LTC and VITC that are embedded in an SDI signal and the D-VITC that is embedded in an SD-SDI signal can be displayed. The timecode can also be used for time stamps in the event log. The English closed captions (EIA-608, EIA-708, or VBI) that are embedded in an SDI signal can be superimposed over the image on the picture screen.

The LV 5770A has two external control connectors: an Ethernet port and a remote control connector. By connecting the Ethernet interface to a PC, you can control the LV 5770A remotely over TELNET, transfer files over FTP, control the LV 5770A remotely and detect errors over SNMP, and control the LV 5770A over HTTP. The remote control connector can be used to load presets, switch the input signal, and transmit errors.
Supports Dual Link & 3G Level A & B, HD-SDI, and SD-SDI.
Built-in XGA display (1024 x 768) for crisp waveforms and picture representations.
"Frame Capture" capability allows you to analyze errors detected through this function, such as SDI (TRS, Line Number, CRC, EDH, etc), ancillary data (Parity and Checksum), embedded audio (BCH, DBN, Parity and Inhibit Line errors), or video errors (Gamut, Composite gamut, Level errors).
"Screen Capture" feature allows you to capture the entire display as still-image data.
Autonomous Monitoring & Error Detection: Alarm for audio silence/video freeze & video black. .
ANC Data Analysis, Settable Error Levels with monitoring, alarms and error logs with time code.
Platform can monitor and display two sources at the same time in two or four split screen displays.
DVI-D rasterized output mirrors built-in screen.
HDMI program output of the selected source is provided.
Accepts and displays on picture and data for Closed Caption (supports both EIA-608-B & EIA-708 systems).
Active Format Description (AFD).
3D assist functionality for 3D video signals monitoring.
Gamma look-up tables.
USB connector allows the use of a flash drive for storing captured screens, presets and software / firmware updates.
Ethernet connectivity allows for remote control over the web, Supports TELNET, FTP, HTTP & SNMP.
Universal AC power supply allows for worldwide use.
