Sisvel Technology IBC 2011 Preview
New 3D Broadcasting System With 3D Tile Format™
Sisvel Technology will display the whole 3D chain, from 3D live content to video encoding and distribution. Two on-set 3D cameras will shoot live from different angles. The live feed will be linked to a professional panelizer, a mixer, and an advanced encoder to allow the operator to switch online between the two cameras for comparison between the 3D Tile Format™ and conventional 3D transmission formats. Several STB and 3DTV devices will decode both audio and video being broadcast in the 3D Tile Format to demonstrate the technology's superior image quality and efficiency across a range of broadcast equipment.
3D Tile Format™
Sisvel Technology's 3D Tile Format™ is a technology offering significant advantages over current 3D transmission methods. Formatting stereoscopic images by integrating two 720p frames within a single 1080p frame, the 3D Tile Format provides better-quality images for 3D content and maintains backward compatibility, allowing viewers not equipped for 3D to view the transmission as 2D images on their full HD sets. The reconstructed right and left images maintain their original 720p spatial and temporal resolution, giving viewers of both versions the full benefit of the original picture, and the transmission of both 2D and 3D can be achieved without the need for increased bandwidth.
