Hi

I am hoping that someone can help me with my question in the title. If I use a Panasonic 3D camcorder and a 3D tv, is there any way that this unit can be used to stream a live 3D signal?

Thank you,

Steve

You might be able to if you have the output in Side by Side format, squashed in order to fit in a normal 2D 1920x1080 frame.

Hi Bloody

Is this something that is done with the camera settings, or do I need a seperate coder? If so, will the TV be able to reverse the formatting so that it is playable?

If the coders are just sending a signal that is received from one place to another, is it not the same as an HDMI cable transferring the signal from the camera to the TV?

Thanks

Steve

If the 3D camera is capable of outputting in Side by Side and not only in 3D MVC compression this should do the trick, you would only need to manually select Side by Side 3D mode from the TV set. Otherwise the device you'd have to use to stream the video would need to support HDMI 1.4 frame packaging...

After checking my Panasonic HDCTM 900K manual, it looks as though it uses the side by side format. Also I think that it records in 720p (AVCHD) mode. Do ypu think that this will squash the picture down sufficiently?

Thanks

If it is recording in Side by Side mode, then you are getting the two frames horizontally compressed to fit the resolution of a single 2D frame.

Does this mean that it could work?

Hi Bloody

I just wanted to update. We are testing our 3D setup using Marshall VS102 HDSDI encoders. They will transmit the side by side 3D signal. The image is amazing.

Thanks

Steve

Good to know you made it work.

There should be other more affordable solutions than the Marshall Electronics VS-102-HDSDI.
