Stereoscopic 3D Test Video Shot With LG Optimus 3D P920 Smartphone

July 15th, 2011 · 3 Comments · Other S3D Tech

Yesterday I’ve shared some stereo 3D photos shot with the LG Optimus 3D P920 smartphone and here is a compilation of multiple stereo 3D clips recorded with the same device. The LG Optimus 3D can record stereoscopic 3D video in 720p squashed Side by Side format (the two frames are fitted in a single 1280×720 frame) although in 2D mode it is able to record video in Full HD resolution. Due to the use of half horizontal resolution when recording video, there is some loss of sharpness and detail, although on the smartphone’s autostereoscopic 3D display this is hardly noticeable. However if you connect the device to a big 3D-capable HDTV over the HDMI 1.4 interface you will notice it. Still the resulting video is quite decent, although as usual there is more to be desired. You can see the embedded sample that is available on YouTube 3D or download the video from the link below, the sample video is with corrected aspect ratio of 16:9 for each frame, there is nothing else being modified. In the video you will notice that, like with the photos, direct sunlight or reflections from strong light are a bit problematic for shooting in 3D, there is one short moment when there is a quick glitch in the automatic white balance adjustment. You will also notice that due to the smaller interaxial distance, the scenes with objects going into the distance the stereoscopic 3D effect of volume is starting to disappear, but the 3D camera on the LG Optimus 3D is intended for shooting close objects and scenes and not landscapes or panoramas. Up next is the full review of the 3D functionality of the phone and meanwhile you can leave your comments about the 3D sample video.

    Not all 3D videos on YouTube are encoded for HTML5 3D viewing and I have no idea if this is something user controllable when uploading a 3D video on youtube…

    thanks, so how do you successfully watch 3d videos on youtube with 3d vision? what browser/ drivers are you using.
