You can now perform real-time conversion of 2D video resources, including high-quality HD, into a variety of 3D formats with speed and simplicity thanks to industry-first algorithms developed by JVC. What's more, JVC's new IF-2D3D1 3D Image Processor supports L/R mixing during 3D recording, thus cutting the time required for 3D content creation. This one unit is the key to transforming your workflow, providing new solutions for virtually any 3D content creation scenario, whether repurposing 2D resources or shooting new material in 3D.

Real-time 2D/3D conversion using unique JVC algorithms
JVC's 2-D/3-D technology is by far the most advanced and efficient real time conversion technology that exists. Connect a conventional 2D high definition source to either the HDSDI or the HDMI input. The source can be either a live camera or recorded material. Each frame of the the 2D signal is analysed with depth estimates based on content. Parallax and intensity adjustments can be made to adjust the 3D effect. A stereoscopic output is generated in real time. Select from four different 3D mixed formats for stereo video output, or output the L/R signals separately for editing.

Compatible with a wide range of 3-D mixed formats
For maximum flexibility you can pick from four 3D mixed formats* for stereo video output:
  • line-by-line
  • side-by-side-half
  • above-below
  • checkerboard.

*Depending on the format of the input signals, the choice of output formats may be limited.

In addition, you can output discrete L & R signals for processing or dual projection, and also stereo output for TV display using the HD-SDI and HDMI outputs (1 each). This means you can hook up the IF-2D3D1 directly to projectors, LCD and PDP displays. Anaglyph and sequential viewing modes offer additional convenience providing multiple ways to check 3D content.

Parallax and 3D Intensity adjustment
For enhancing the 3D effect to make it easier to view, the IF-2D3D1 offers two adjustments, Parallax and 3D Intensity.

Parallax adjustment: This displaces the left-eye and right-eye images horizontally, offering a choice of 3 different viewing modes. With Parallax 1, you can adjust the images naturally, while Parallax 2 presents anaglyph images. The third mode is Parallax 3, which allows you to make adjustments while displaying the left and right images sequentially.

3D Intensity adjustment: This allows virtual, simultaneous adjustment of curvature and relief, to manipulate the intensity of the 3D effect. As with Parallax adjustment, there are three viewing modes: Intensity 1 (natural), Intensity 2 (anaglyph), and Intensity 3 (sequential).

The table shows what inputs the IF-2D3D1 accepts and what signals it can output.
