Leader Joins Alliance for IP Media Solutions
"The television industry is in fast transition as it embraces higher display resolution standards such as 4K, higher dynamic range, wider colour gamut and the increasing use of IP," comments Leader's European business development manager Kevin Salvidge. "Joining AIMS demonstrates Leader's continued commitment to providing the industry's technical managers, content producers and post-production creatives with all the facilities they need to operate successfully in an increasingly multi-standard world. We are allowing broadcasters to migrate from the traditional SDI world to the brave new IP world at their own pace, with test and measurement products that operate in either or both environments."
The Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the education, awareness, and promotion of industry standards for the transmission of video, audio, and ancillary information over an IP infrastructure, as well as products based on those standards. The group represents the interests of broadcast and media companies as well as technology suppliers who share a commitment to facilitating the industry's transition from SDI to IP through standards and interoperable solutions that enable the rapid evolution to open, agile, and versatile production environments.
Leader's flagship LV5490 4K/HD/SD test instrument is already compatible with Sony's IP Live Video and Networked Media Interface technologies. The Networked Media Interface packetizes video, audio and metadata, enabling real-time transmission between video production equipment via standard network infrastructures. It enhance Sony’s IP Live Production system by increasing efficiency and reducing cost for the broadcasting of live studio and sports production.
The LV5490 with its latest features will be demonstrated on Leader booth C9021 at the 2017 NAB Show, Las Vegas Convention Center, April 24-27.
