JVC unveils new stereoscopic image processor

JVC Professional Products has introduced a new stereoscopic image processor that can be used to convert 2-D content to 3-D and as a 3-D L/R mixer for video content producers. JVC is making this 2-D-to-3-D conversion technology widely available under license in March.

Using proprietary JVC algorithms, the new IF-2D3D1 converts 2-D content to 3-D in real time, offering up to four 3-D 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.

Housed in a 1RU metal cabinet and compatible with a wide range of HD formats, 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 3-D intensity — both with natural, anaglyph and sequential viewing modes.

Generally, 3-D 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 3-D-capable monitor, such as JVC’s GD-463D10U, a 46in 3-D 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 3-D content.
