STEREOSCOPIC IMAGE PROCESSOR
TO HELP 3D CONTENT CREATORS IMPROVE WORKFLOW
Offers Real-Time 2D-to-3D
Conversion to Repurpose Archived Content,
Also Serves as 3D L/R Mixer for
Monitoring 3D Footage on Location
NJ (January 5, 2010) – JVC Professional Products, a division of JVC
U.S.A., today introduced the IF-2D3D1 Stereoscopic
Image Processor, which works as a 2D-to-3D converter and as a 3D L/R
mixer for video content producers. Housed in a
rugged, 1RU metal cabinet and compatible with a wide range of HD
formats, the IF-2D3D1 is designed to help 3D content
producers improve their workflow, whether they are converting archived
2D material or shooting original content in 3D.
the public’s renewed interest in 3D for both theatrically released
content and beyond, many
content producers are looking to repurpose existing 2D materials to
meet demand. Meanwhile, other producers creating new content need an
uncomplicated way to check their 3D footage on location,” explained
Dave Walton, assistant vice president of marketing and communication.
“This single unit is ideal for both. The IF-2D3D1 is the key to
providing new solutions for virtually any 3D content creation
- Using unique JVC algorithms, the IF-2D3D1 converts
2D content to 3D in real time, offering no fewer than four 3D mixed
formats (which combine left-eye and right-eye images) for stereo video
output on a compatible device: line-by-line, side-by-side-half,
above-below, and checkerboard. JVC is making this
2D-to-3D conversion technology widely available under license. The IF-2D3D1 can also output discrete
left and right signals via HD-SDI or HDMI for dual projection or
editing. Output can be adjusted for parallax (image displacement) and
3D intensity – both with natural, anaglyph, and sequential viewing
3D footage is shot using a pair of video cameras, but producers have
not had a practical method of real-time monitoring on location. The
IF-2D3D1 easily combines the left-eye and right-eye images – nothing
else is required except a 3D capable monitor, such as JVC's GD-463D10U,
a 46-inch 3D LCD panel. A built-in HD-SDI frame synchronizer provides
sync for two cameras that lack external sync, plus anaglyph and
sequential viewing modes provide multiple ways to check 3D content.
creation workflow can also be improved through a variety of additional
features. The Scope feature provides a waveform monitor and vectorscope
for comparing both video streams on a display to ensure the settings
for both cameras – such as exposure and white balance – are matched.
The Split feature combines the two video streams on one screen with a
moveable boundary, allowing instant L/R comparison. And when one of the
two cameras has to be positioned upside down (to ensure correct
spacing), Rotation makes sure both streams can be viewed the right way
up and in sync.
