Eyeheight introducing LE-3D stereoscopic video legaliser to European broadcast market IBC2012

31 July 2012: Eyeheight has chosen IBC2012 for the European-mainland launch of the world’s first multi-rate stereoscopic video legaliser.

Developed in co-operation with one of London's most innovative broadcast production, post-production and distribution facilities, the LE-3D is a dual-channel 3D video legaliser. It offers a simple way of helping edited stereoscopic programmes pass broadcasters' technical quality-assurance requirements. Legalisation parameters for left and right video channels can be adjusted from a single operating panel, ensuring precise compliance with industry standards.

Operator-adjustable settings within the LE-3D include RGB, YUV or composite mode selection, clipping level, soft clipping knee, luma and chroma gain, black level, and hue rotation. Once set, the legaliser automatically detects and correct any parts of a video signal that do not conform to industry-agreed component or composite colour space levels.

Eyeheight legalisers incorporate single-touch presets for all major standards, making them practically effortless to use in any country.

Based on Eyeheight’s proven geNETics platform, the LE-3D 3D video legaliser has two independent HD-SDI inputs and outputs. Processing is to full 10-bit depth throughout. Multiple LE-3D modules can be accommodated in a 1 RU 19 inch chassis for operation under local control from an Eyeheight FP-9 generic control panel.

All Eyeheight geNETics products are driven via a unified hardware or software menu system giving fast and easy access to all relevant parameters. The LE-3D is compatible with 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.

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

Eyeheight (www.eyeheight.com) designs and manufactures SDI/HD-SDI equipment for programme-origination, quality-assurance, post-production, playout and associated areas. This includes hardware legalisers, logo generators, safe-area generators, keyers, colour correctors and aspect ratio converters. Eyeheight products are available worldwide.
