LE-3D 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.

CC-3D Stereoscopic Colour Corrector
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.

Designed for use in television studios, broadcast ingest suites, post-production facilities and playout centres, the LE-3G enables video legalisation parameters to be corrected automatically, ensuring full compliance with industry-agreed regulations for broadcast signal delivery. Single-touch presets allow fast configuration to EBU-R103 (Europe) 7.5 IRE pedestal (US) or 0 IRE pedestal (Japan).

Detailed configuration of the legaliser can be performed via an intuitive menu system common to all products in Eyeheight's geNETics series. Backlit LCD pushbuttons guide the operator through the various control modes, include RGB, YUV or composite mode selection, clipping level, soft clipping knee, luma and chroma gain, black level, and hue rotation. Six user memories are available to store group settings.

The LE-3G also has an out-of-gamut-indicate output with Eyeheight's unique visual severity monitor output to show the operator where, on the picture, any correction of the signal is being carried out. A timecode-referenced output log is generated for viewing via a connected PC. An automation port provides PC-based access to preset parameters stored within the LE-3G. Firmware and software are fully updatable via file upload.

Up to six LE-3G modules can be accommodated in a 1 rack-unit Eyeheight FB-9E 19 inch chassis together with a single auto-switching dual-redundant power supply. Each module can be operated under local control from an Eyeheight FP-9 generic control panel mounted in front of the chassis, or remotely.

In addition to 1080p50 and 1080p60, the LE-3G is compatible with 1080i/50/59.94 or 1080p23.976/24/25/29.97, 720p/50/59.94 and 625/50 or 525/59.94 television standards. Processing is to full 10-bit depth throughout.

Options for the Eyeheight LE-3G legaliser include a Java-based softPanel control and specific web application.
