The LV5300A WAVEFORM MONITOR is compact without sacrificing performance, supporting SDI signals from SD through 12G rates and including physical layer testing. The LV5300A is a 3U half-rack, short-depth waveform monitor with a built-in 7-inch touch screen display and a full array of buttons and control knobs.
The waveform, vector, picture, audio, and eye pattern displays enable simple yet comprehensive measurements and quality control of the widest range of audio and video formats. The status display allows you to assess errors and system stability with both event logs and long-term charts. Audio embedded in SDI signals can be shown on the level, Lissajous, and status displays.

The LV5300A has a DC power input, which enables it to be used in locations where AC power supplies are not available. Moreover, the LV5300A can be battery-operated by installing a battery mount option. With its combination of touch screen, dedicated buttons and knobs, and user-defined screen layouts the LV5300A allows complex measurement and monitoring tasks to be quickly completed in almost any environment.

The display mode corresponds to CIE 1931 (xy display) and CIE 1976 (u’v ‘display). Since the CIE chart display function can display two color gamuts, the function can be used to suppress the color gamut of BT.709 using the equipment compatible with BT.2020, and to confirm the content that exceeds the color gamut of BT.709. In color display, the chromaticity point is displayed using the color (on the picture) in the video signal. The chromaticity point can be measured at the point with the cursor.
