Inition Launch New 3D HD Video Processing Unit 'StereoBrain' At BVE

Broadcast Video Expo has seen the unveiling of the StereoBrain (SB-1), a new 3D HD video processing unit developed for use in stereoscopic 3D production and broadcast.
The StereoBrain Processor (SB-1) is the first in a range of 3D processors being developed jointly by broadcast video experts NuMedia Technology and stereoscopic 3D specialists Inition.
The StereoBrain SB-1 is designed to allow live viewing from a stereoscopic camera pair or other 3D video source on any of the current breed of 3D televisions. This enables live 3D viewing and manipulation in post-production environments from any 3D pair of HD-SDI sources.
The SB-1 outputs the pair of images via a single DVI/HDMI signal in interlaced or side-by-side configuration, both of which are common 3D formats. It can also output overlayed left/right on a standard 2D HD monitor. Both side-by-side and mirror/beam-splitter rigs are also supported with the latter via a built in vertical flip function.
Future models of the StereoBrain Processor (SB-2, SB-3) will launch in Q2, 2009 and will support a range of sophisticated 3D video processing functions including the ability to shift convergence live and additional features to align and monitor stereoscopic 3D sources. The SB-1 is being demonstrated with a live 3D camera system on the NuMedia Technology and Inition stand K36.
Andy Millns, Director at Inition commented: "3D has always been technically challenging from acquisition and post-production through to distribution. Current video hardware was not designed to handle 3D images but ability to view and manipulate 3D pairs of HD sources is an essential tool for 3D production. The StereoBrain Processor allows you to monitor and manipulate 3D on a wide range of 3D and non-3D monitors and TVs. This represents a significant improvement in the 3D production process."
