The Leader LV 5381 4-SDI Input Multi SDI Monitor with 8.4-inch Display is a waveform monitor that can monitor up to four SDI signals simultaneously. The Leader LV5381 4-SDI Multi Monitor with 8.4-inch Display is optimized for the level adjustment of the outputs of multiple installed cameras. In the video signal waveform display, vector display, and picture display, multiple input signals can be displayed on top of each other or lined up next to each other. The Leader LV-5381 is also full of useful features such as a level meter display for embedded audio, an error display that indicates transmission errors, and a 5-bar display that shows video signal peak levels using five bars. Furthermore, the Leader LV 5381 can show different combinations of these displays in its multi-screen display.

Main Features of the Leader LV 5381 4-SDI Input Multi SDI Monitor with 8.4-inch Display
Simultaneous Monitoring of Four Inputs The Leader LV 5381 is a waveform monitor with a built-in 8.4-inch TFTLCD. It can display up to four SDI input signals of the same format simultaneously. The LCD is an XGA display (1024 x 768 pixels) that boasts high color reproducibility. This makes the Leader LV5381 useful for picture monitoring as well.
Rich Assortment of Display Features Not only does the LV 5381 have essential displays for video signal quality monitoring, such as a video signal waveform display and a vector display, it also has a rich assortment of other display features such as a picture display, audio level meter display, 5-bar display, transmission error detection, and gamut error detection.
Wide Variety of Display Formats In the video signal waveform display, vector display, and picture display, the Leader LV 5381 can display up to four input SDI signals on top of each other or side by side. This makes it suitable for adjusting the gain and black balance values of multiple cameras. In the video signal waveform and vector displays, the Leader LV 5381 can make different waveforms easier to see by using a different waveform color for each input channel
Extremely Flexible Display Layouts Each of the different displays can be shown on a single screen, or the multi-screen 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, and audio level meter display can be shown as a thumbnail display on the one-screen display.
Video Signal Waveform Display The input Y CB CR signal can be converted to an RGB or pseudocomposite signal and shown on the video signal waveform display. The video signal waveform display has a rich assortment of features such as waveform magnification and line selection
Standard-Equipped CINELITE II The CINELITE feature makes it easy to manage the levels of specific points on the picture display. This is useful for adjusting the gain of multiple cameras through the use of the same reference point. The CINEZONE feature makes it possible to check the luminance distribution of the whole picture display at a glance.
Screen Capture Feature The display can be captured and stored as image data. The captured data can be displayed on the Leader LV 5381. Additionally, The Leader LV5381 can be saved as bitmap files to USB memory, which makes it possible to view the data on a PC.
External Sync Signal Input The LV 5381 can receive a tri-level sync signal or an NTSC or PAL black burst signal as its external sync signal and then display video signal waveforms with this sync signal as its reference.
Presets Stores up to 30 front panel presets.
Key LEDs All the panel keys have LEDs. This makes it easy to find the keys even in dark environments.
