“These multi-company sessions are additional to the video primers about ST 2110, and product-specific video files, already available from the Leader Europe YouTube Channel,” Kevin Salvidge adds. “Leader equipment is designed to be easy to use, especially by operational and production staff working in studios or on location, without compromising the detailed technical test and measurement tools technicians require to guarantee high service quality. Features such as our CINELITE, CINEZONE and CINEZONE HDR allow accurate quality monitoring to be performed intuitively and in real time at both IP and SDI based facilities. Many engineers and facility managers nevertheless like to keep abreast of new production methods and industry standards. We take our educational role very seriously and offer training-related reference PDF documentation as well as audiovisual presentations which can be downloaded from the Leader website.”
