Stand 7.B30, IBC 2012
Digital connectivity solutions provider Gefen reveals its new 3D Split-Image Converter at IBC Stand 7.B30. This unique solution offers an innovative approach to delivering 3DTV content from an HDMI source such as a Blu-ray to a 3DTV-enabled projector that has split-image capability and two (A and B) DVI inputs.
This new 3D Split-Image Converter can also output two DVI signals that can feed two stacked projectors at the same time, upgrading the resulting video to show 3DTV content with increased brightness for a high quality picture. High definition resolutions up to 1080p full HD are supported.
When outputting video as 3DTV content, the resulting superimposed images can be viewed using standard, passive polarizing glasses. Imagery can also be configured as left eye/right eye or as identical 2D signals, depending on your preference. In both scenarios, the 3D Split-Image Converter can also extract digital audio from the HDMI input and deliver it as a separate optical output (TOSLINK), allowing a connection to an audio amplifier.
“We envisioned this new 3D Split-Image Converter as an essential device to upgrade a studio, facility or any environment with 3DTV viewing capability when using alternative content, such as a 3D Blu-ray disc,” explained Hagai Gefen, president and CEO, Gefen. The 3D Split-Image Converter works with all Hi-Def video sources capable of producing 3DTV content including Blu-rays, set-top boxes and gaming consoles. It offers control through front panel buttons, IR remote or RS-232 interface.
