London, UK, October 12, 2016:
Leader Electronics Corporation announces the appointment of Broadcast Service Centre (BSC) as Leader’s Accredited Service Partner for Europe.

“Less than one per cent of Leader products are ever returned for repair or adjustment during the two-year warranty period,” comments Kevin Salvidge, Leader’s European Regional Development Manager.

“Until now customers would send products needing service to the relevant distribution partner. If necessary, the instruments would then forwarded by air for repair at our headquarters in Japan.

“BSC has all the resources necessary to maintain and calibrate Leader equipment quickly, efficiently and dependably. The company will be handling our full range of broadcast test and measurement products including the LV5490 4K/UHD/3G/HD/SD multiscreen waveform monitor and its 4K/UHD-upgradable LV5480 3G/HD/SD equivalent, plus the LV7390 4K/UHD/3G-SDI/HD-SDI/SD-SDI rasterizer, LT4610 3G/HD/SD multi-format video sync generator, the LT4446 autoswitch and the LV5333 multi SDI waveform monitor.”

“We are very pleased that Leader has chosen us as its European service partner,” adds BSC Director Tim Davies. “Leader products are highly accurate, strongly built and well able to withstand the rigours of being used on location as well as the more sedate handling meted out to broadcast equipment in studio control rooms and postproduction suites. We look forward to working with Leader’s European customers, providing fast and dependable service whenever needed.”

Leader Electronics Corporation

Since its establishment more than 60 years ago, Leader ( has earned a worldwide reputation for designing and manufacturing some of the most reliable, practical and cost effective electronic instruments available. The products were originally developed for production testing and servicing. These are applications in which ease-of-use and highest reliability are essential.

Manufacturing quality is built in every step of the way. Only the finest parts are used for optimum reliability. At each production run, sub-assemblies are separately tested before they are integrated into the finished product which is then further tested. Less than 1% of all Leader products made are ever returned for warranty repair or adjustment. Leader products, ranging from 4K waveform monitors to rasterizers and video test equipment, are specified for research, development, broadcast, production and service applications.

Re-established in 2015 by Leader Electronics (Yokohama, Japan), Leader Electronics Europe ( provides customer support, sales and marketing services both for Leader and a select number of high-technology manufacturers with specific focus on the broadcast and professional video market.
