Leader LV5490 Montreux Jazz Festival Radio Télévision Suisse UHD HDR Trials

SWITZERLAND – Swiss public service broadcaster Radio Télévision Suisse (RTS) has successfully completed a series of UHD high-dynamic-range live OB recordings and post-production tests at the 2017 Montreux Jazz Festival. A Leader LV5490 was used as one of the master test instruments during the project at the Montreux Music & Convention Centre and Radio Télévision Suisse post-production facilities in Geneva.

“RTS identified the Montreux Jazz Festival as an ideal subject for evaluating the potential of UHD HDR,” says Leader’s European Regional Development Manager, Kevin Salvidge. “The combination of bright lighting on performers and much lower lighting in the auditorium pushes the dynamic capabilities of traditional HD television to the limits. Shooting UHD in standard-dynamic-range increases the visibility of any video noise in the system, particularly in darker areas, because the amount of detail in the images is much greater than in HD.
