Leader’s CINELITE will be demonstrated to at Hands on HD, in Hannover, Germany, July 30 to August 5. Established seven years ago, the event is a respected television production workshop.
CINELITE is a new option for the company’s LV5700A, LV5750 and LV5800 digital test instruments that enables content producers to determine optimal camera exposure settings much more precisely than is possible with a traditional luminance meter. By detecting the actual signal levels captured during preshoot line-up rather merely displaying local light intensity, CINELITE allows a camera's full dynamic range to be used.
When a camera is connected via SDI cable or digitizing interface to the Leader test instrument, the actual picture can be displayed on a 1024 x 768 pixel TFT LCD screen. Hairline cursors can then be used to select the brightest and darkest points in the scene. By pressing a button, CINELITE displays the optimal exposure setting either as an f-stop or, if preferred, as a percentage value. When incorporated into the recently-announced Leader LV5800, four different points of interest on a live feed can be monitored simultaneously.
