LV7330 – Multi-SDI Rasterizer

The LV7330 is a highly functional, compact, light-weight SDI rasterizer that boasts exceptional cost performance. When the LV7330 is connected to an external XGA or WXGA monitor, it can display the picture of an SD/HD SDI signal in addition to video signal waveforms, vectors, audio data and data analyses of the signal. The LV7330 also comes standard-equipped with CINELITE® II, a convenient tool for analyzing luminance data.

On-Picture measurements as well as true-color and false-color displays allow unprecedented understanding over picture levels and improve collaborative work between creative and technical while providing the direction needed for the post production process. Various multi-display combinations allow for complete and easy monitoring while full-screen presentations provide a wealth of information and enable detailed review of the material.

Picture, waveform, vector, 5-bar, audio, status as well as CINELITE® and CINEZONE® displays provide all of the features needed in the field and in the rack. USB drive connectivity allows you to capture pictures for documentation purposes, personalize presets and perform software updates.

LV7330 Data Sheet


Leader Instruments Corporation warrants its products to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of two years from the date of purchase.

Leader’s obligation under this warranty is limited to repairing or replacing, at its sole option, any such defective product. Product must be returned to a Leader Service Center with transportation charges prepaid and must be accompanied by a brief description of the problem encountered and date and place of purchase. This warranty does not apply to equipment, which has been damaged by accident, negligence, and misapplication, altered or modified in any way.





In addition, we offer extended warranty coverage for an additional year (3-year extended warranty) or three years (5-year extended warranty). For your peace of mind, we highly suggest considering any of these extended warranties as soon as possible (and before the end of the standard warranty period) because, in some cases, the cost to repair your instrument could be up to 50% of the original purchase value. If interested in any of these extended warranties, please contact your LEADER authorized representative or visit our Warranty Page for details and pricing (within 30 days of original purchase).

Damage caused due to negligence or accident is not covered by Leader’s Warranties. LCD Display, CRT and transformer parts costs are not covered by the Extended Warranty. There is no Extended Warranty available for accessories.


  • LR-2478: Rackmount Adapter for two 1/2-rack by 1 rack unit (LV7330 and LT4400)
  • LR-2481-U: Rackmount Adapter for one 1/2-rack by 1 rack unit (LV7330).
  • LR-2480: Rackmount Adapter for one 1/2-rack by 1 rack unit (can fit LV7330 but color doesn’t match)
  • AC Adapter: AC Adapter for LV5330, LV5381, LV5382, LV7330



  • Histogram & User Gamma Option (LV7330-OP01)
    A picture histogram display is added with this option to allow production professionals a familiar view of their work. The histogram display is shown at the bottom of the picture and can be set up to show histogram for Y-only or for Y, R, G, B. It also enables to convert the user-defined gamma to ITU-R BT709 gamma and show the converted signal on the picture display.

   More recently, we have added the S-LOG2 with Custom False Colors Display to this option.  See below for more information.

  • S-LOG2 and Custom False Colors Display Option for LV7330 (included in the LV7330-OP01)
    This is a very useful option to handle the S-LOG2 features available in some cameras. If the image is under-exposed, turn on the LOW KEY filter to evaluate shadow details. On the other hand, if the image is over-exposed, use the HIGH KEY filter to see the highlight details. In addition, this option allows you to zoom in into the image without manipulating the focus from the camera. It also allows you to look at the exposure levels through custom false color displays.
  • Gamut & Level Error Option (LV7330-OP02)
    This option allows to identify the area and time specification in gamut error detection and the detection of luminance and  chrominance signal level errors.
