The company’s new ORCHID Version 1.3 software offers S3D production and monitoring tools and additional audio diagnostics for its ORCHID series of monitors. The new software adds built-in S3D monitoring capabilities to multiscreen and single-screen LCD monitors.
The new software supports 3-D review for side-by-side S3D sources, which allows full-screen image viewing of either the left- or right-eye image as well as a blended view of both the left and right eye simultaneously. The 3-D review submenu also includes a luminance difference filter and chrominance difference filter.
