JVC Sony Stereo Labs VIDEOFORCE Litepanels JVC 3D JVC 3D Spotlight J VC Professional’s expanded family of 3D products now include the new GY-HMZ1 3D ProHD handheld camera, along with the GD-323D20 32 inch 3D display/ production monitor, our popular DT-3D24G1 3D production monitor and the upgraded IF-2D3D1 2D to 3D converter. The products are already widely used throughout the post industry, helping content creators manage their 3D workflows. SONY Shown at the recent BVE North event, the new GY-HMZ1 is JVC’s first 3D ProHD camcorder. With its integrated 3D twin lens design, the GY-HMZ1 can simultaneously record each left and right image in full 1920x1080 resolution to non-proprietary SDHC or SDXC media cards or to the camera’s built-in 64GB internal memory. Dual 3.32 megapixel CMOS sensors deliver 34 Mbps AVCHD recording in 3D or 24 Mbps in 2D and video can be recorded with timecode at 50i to provide smooth motion (for sports and other fast action) or 24p for a film- like effect. The GY-HMZ1 can also capture 3D time lapse and 3D digital stills. Included with the camera is JVC’s 3D to LR conversion software, which converts 3D video files recorded with the GY- HMZ1 into two individual video files that can then be imported into major NLE systems for 3D footage editing. Ideal for use in editing suites, the DT-3D24G1 24-inch production monitor features a compact screen that supports virtually any 3D camera setting, with advanced image alignment tools and 1920x1200 pixel resolution with 10-bit digital processing. Equipped with proven DT-V series technology including an IPS panel, switchable colour space, high-resolution, dual timecode, waveform and vectorscope, the DT-3D24G1 monitor accepts and processes signals from dual camera systems, stereo-rigs and coded Side- by-Side and Line-by-Line 3D signals. With its Xpol® Circular Polarizing System, it displays 3D images that can be seen using inexpensive polarized (passive) glasses, which avoids potential flicker and power issues associated with active shutter glasses. With no need to synchronize glasses with the display, the monitor B Testing the Sony TD300 for the Four Nations 48 | TV-BAY MAGAZINE roadcast RF have used the new Sony TD300 3D camcorder as a radio camera for the Live Four Nations Rugby League games at Wembley recently. It is the first time the Sony TD300 camera has been used as a radio camera in a live sports production. A major advantage of the TD300 camera is the form factor – it has the look and feel (and weight!) of a “regular” 2D camera, which means that - unlike many bigger is ideal for viewing environments where multiple displays are used, such as control rooms or production trucks. Plus, the compact DT- 3D24G1 can be battery powered, making it ideal for location shoots. Responding to requests for a bigger screen size and a growing demand from the medical industry for 3D imaging tools, JVC Professional has developed the new GD-323D20 32-inch 3D monitor. An advancement of the broadcast studio monitor, DT-3D24G1, the GD-323D20’s passive 3D display is perfect for post production applications and for medical use in surgical procedures such as endoscopy and microscopy, allowing surgeons much greater precision thanks to the ability to see depth accurately. JVC has also updated the software for the popular IF-2D3D1 Stereoscopic Image Processor which offers real-time 2D-to-3D conversion to repurpose archived content and also serves as a 3D L/R mixer for monitoring 3D footage on location. The new edition firmware upgrade – the TS-2D3D1V3 – offers improved 3D image shooting and editing, incorporating JVC’s extensive know-how and experience with 2D-to-3D conversion. www.jvcpro.co.uk stereoscopic rigs – it can easily be used as a shoulder camera or on a Steadicam. While the inter- axial distance between the two “eyes” is fixed, the convergence can be controlled either from the camera or remotely, the minimum convergence distance is 1.2 m. The TD300 camera has an individual HD-SDI output for each eye, so both left and right eye are available in full HD resolution rather than merged into a single side-by-side output. >>
