Eyeheight CC-3D stereoscopic colour corrector makes IBC debut

25 July 2012: Eyeheight's CC-3D, shown in prototype at BVE2012 and now in production, makes its IBC debut in Amsterdam, 7-11 September.

Designed for use in broadcast content acquisition, post-production and playout centres, the Eyeheight CC-3D combines the features of a stereoscopic colour corrector and legaliser in a single unit. It allows unified control of both channels of a stereoscopic 3D pair. The CC-3D's adjustable colour correction parameters include R, G, B and master gain and lift plus selectable master or individual R, G and B gamma control with overall luma, chroma gain, hue rotation and black level.

The integral legaliser automatically ensures that adjustments remain within industry-agreed signal levels. Default legalisation settings are to EBU R103-2000. Alternative legalisation parameters can be set and stored. The legaliser is equivalent to a stand-alone Eyeheight RGB legaliser including overshoot suppression and six user memories.

The CC-3D is capable of working at 1080i/50/59.94 or 1080p 23.976/24/25/29.97 high definition, 720p/50/59.94 intermediate definition and 625/50 or 525/59.94 standard definition. Housed in a 1 rack-unit chassis, it can be operated from an Eyeheight FP-9C colour corrector control panel. A single control panel can also be networked via CAT5 (Ethernet) cable to drive multiple CC-3D systems. An optional browser-based Java software panel is available.

Exhibiting on stand 8.B97, Eyeheight will be represented at IBC2012 by Martin Moore. Steve Crocker and Linda Underwood.
