Miranda Licenses RealD Format for its Stereoscopic 3D Signal Processor
Miranda Technologies today announced that it has licensed the stereoscopic RealD Format, from ReadD Inc, to broaden the conversion capabilities of its Densité 3DX-3901 stereoscopic 3D signal processor module.
“By adding RealD Format conversion to our 3DX-3901, the processor now offers the full breadth of stereoscopic 3D conversion capabilities”, said Jean-Marc d’Anjou, Vice-President Infrastructure at Miranda. “It can now interface between all the common 3D formats, and thereby simplify the transition to 3DTV playout using an existing HD infrastructure”.
The Densité 3DX-3901 provides high quality conversion of multiple 3D formats, including Dual Link 3Gbps/1.5Gbps and Single Link 3Gbps/1.5Gbps, with RealD encoding. It features a single 3Gbps/HD input and dual 3Gbps/HD outputs; this allows previewing of conversion effects, as well as 3D/2D simulcasting.
The processor also offers horizontal and vertical flip, interaxial adjustment, and Horizontal Image Translation for adjustments to depth positioning, and for simulating a 3D landscape from a 2D scene. The monitoring output offers anaglyph, Difference-Disparity, and left/right eye display.
The RealD Format is a patented version of a side-by-side 3D formatting technology. It utilizes a unique set of filters and other technology to multiplex left eye and right eye 3D image streams into a single channel for delivery of high-definition progressive or interlaced 3D video using today’s HD infrastructure, including existing HD set-top boxes and DVRs, to any 3D-enabled display type. The side-by-side format was recently named in HDMI Specification Version 1.4a as a mandatory format for the transmission of 3D content between devices.
