Leader Expands Support Resources With New Training Podcasts

Leader Electronics is adding to its range of training resources with the start of a podcast series explaining the latest developments in broadcast content creation and distribution.

“These free-subscription podcasts allow listeners to hear about the latest developments in HDR, live production, IP video and more from highly experienced industry specialists,” says Kevin Salvidge, Leader’s European regional development manager. “We have titled the series ‘Be A Video Leader! The Ultimate Test & Measurement Podcast’ and are making it available on various platforms including Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Google Podcasts.”

Episode 1 is entitled The Future of Live HDR Production: A talk with six broadcast industry experts (1 hour 32 minutes). Speakers are Chris Seeger and Michael Drazin (NBC Universal), Pablo Garcia Soriano (Cromorama), Prinyar Boon (Phabrix) and Leader’s Salvidge. It is moderated by Sports Video Group’s Ken Kerschbaumer.

The podcast can be directly accessed HERE,  referenced diagrams can be downloaded HERE, and the discussion can also be viewed HERE.

Episode 2 is The Future of Live Remote Production: Six industry experts discuss the impact of SMPTE 2110 (60 minutes). The panel comprises Gerard Phillips and Robert Welch (Arista), Boon (Phabrix), Simen Frostad (Bridge Technologies), and Steve Holmes (Leader Electronics), moderated by Kerschbaumer.

The podcast version can be heard HERE and the discussion can also be viewed HERE.

“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,” adds Salvidge. “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.”
