Teranex Systems, Inc., a leading manufacturer of high-performance video processing platforms, presented Phase 9 at IBC. The VC100 software now with VC1-3DTK and VC1-3D-SYNC applications, can correct typical problems created by 3D camera rigs and synchronizes 3D streams.
Teranex’s VC1-3DTK application used with the new PC control GUI can flip the right or left eye horizontally & vertically, adjust for Inter-Axial Distance (IAD) with separate horizontal and vertical adjustments, change the axial and toe-in rotation angles, zoom or crop and adjust video parameters to accurately match Right and Left eye camera streams. As an added benefit, the application includes all the features of the VC1-3D-SYNC with +/-1 Frame Synchronizing capability, frame rate conversion and the ability to reference the R/L eye signals to an external source or to the Left eye signal.
“Capturing effective 3D with high quality cameras can be expensive and a challenge for Stereographers. This new application allows them to use any available camera pair and achieve incredibly affordable 3D captures or correct for pre-recorded issues. Our 3D Toolkit & 3D Sync applications resolve 3D genlock, geometric and electronic disparity issues. The 3D Sync application can even change the frame rate from 23.98 to 50 or 59.94. We were intimately involved in the SD to HD transition and we believe our exceptional technologies will do the same for 3D production, helping to provide more affordable means to create more 3D content,” said Mike Poirier, Vice President and General Manager of Teranex
