Re: 3D Calibration info from Mike Wood (Samsung)
thanks for the update!
On the Quantam Data 780, I guess a question that will need to come up eventually is what 3D format does this output(s)?
Side by Side?
I would *assume* one would need the ability for all formats to be totally prepared and check all possibilities? :confused:
FWIW, from Mitsubishi’s site:
A12: There are several different formats for 3D signals possible; however the HDMI 1.4a specifications defined some types as mandatory for transfer over the HDMI cable. Most signals will be one of these types of mandatory signals. These fall into 3 general categories:
1.Frame Packing — a very high resolution 3D signal that requires a lot of bandwidth — this is not suitable for most broadcasting over Cable TV systems or Satellite systems. It is very suitable for Blu-ray disc and gaming systems. For the USA, there is 1080p at 24 frames per second — sent by Blu-ray players and 720p at 60 frames per second expected to be used by future gaming consoles.
2.Side-By-side — this is where a normal video frame actually contains two frames (one for each eye) and if not processed as a 3D signal would look like two pictures side by side on the screen of the TV. In the USA most of these signals will be 1080p 24 or 30 frames per second, 1080i 60 fields per second, or 720p 60 frames per second. These signals are suitable for broadcast applications.
3.Top-Bottom — this is similar to Side-by-Side where the normal video frame actually contains two frames except the normal frame is divided in haft top to bottom. Again the in the USA most of these will be 1080p 24, or 30 frames per second, 1080i 60 fields per second or 720p 60 frames per second. These types of signal are also suitable for broadcast.
The Checkerboard format is really designed as method of displaying 3D on the TV and not expected to be used to send 3D signals to your home. The Mitsubishi 3D TVs display 3D using the checkerboard format so the Mitsubishi 3D Adapter is designed to convert the Frame packing, side-by-side and top-bottom signals mentioned above to the checkerboard format.
