Stereoscopic Video Processor

Product ManualManual
  • VistaLINK® enabled
  • 3Gb/s enabled

The Evertz® 7832SVP-3G Stereoscopic Video Processor module is a second generation multi-purpose module designed specifically to aid in the production and post production of high definition Stereoscopic 3D video. This 7800 series module provides for Left eye and Right eye inputs and processed program outputs. In addition, it also provides 2D monitoring tools to aid in rig alignment, and a 3D formatted output to drive flat panel 3D displays.

The 7832SVP-3G can also be used to solve common problems encountered in 3D broadcasting, such as frame syncing, Frame compatible formatting for 3D playout, and timing alignment of 3D backhauls to the studio (with the +STM option).

The 7832SVP-3G is available in 2 versions. The standard version supports only 4:2:2 video formats. The 7832SVP-444-3G version supports 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 video formats. When used with 4:4:4 formats it also provides 4:2:2 outputs for monitoring, and has the ability to apply user programmable Look up Tables to normalize logarithmic program inputs for monitoring.

The 7832SVP-3G occupies two card slots and can be housed in the 1RU 7801FR frame which holds up to four single or two dual slot modules, or the 3RU 7800FR frame which has a 15 slot capacity.

  • Five Auxiliary outputs are assignable to Mixer, On Screen Display and 3D Formatted output functions
  • Mixer output -1.5GB/s serial digital HD output provides a processed combination of the Left Eye and Right Eye for convergence pulling, camera alignment, colour matching, etc. Mixer output modes -50/50 blend, difference, luma only difference, horizontal 50/50 split, tile, anaglyph, wiggle
  • 3D Formatter output -1.5GB/s or 3GB/s serial digital HD output provides a formatted output for directly driving 3D capable display devices in the following modes - Top-and-Bottom, Side-by-Side, Line Interleave - output standard set to match display resolution, independent of input resolution
  • Broadcast quality 3D Formatted output can also be used as 'Frame compatible' output for 3D playout or backhaul in the following modes - Top-and-Bottom, Side-by-Side
  • Horizontal Image Translation (HIT) on Auxiliary outputs allows adjustment of the convergence plane without affecting the program path.
  • Stereo frame sync locks both eyes to an external reference, or permits the right eye to be locked to the left eye. Independent H and V phasing controls for PGM output and 3D Formatted Output
  • External reference - supports colour black or tri-level sync from BNC input or frame reference
  • Passes four groups of audio from left or right input to corresponding program output as well as 3D Formatted output
  • Passes VANC ancillary data as well as timecode from inputs to PGM outputs and from Left Eye or Right eye input to 3D Formatted Output
  • Card edge menu using On Screen Display superimposed on Mixer, 3D Formatted, blue or black video is used to configure the operating modes and display critical module status
  • Ten user presets to quickly load user configurations to the card
  • Eight Programmable GPI control inputs - select mixer modes, adjust horizontal and vertical shift, load card presets, etc.
  • Card Edge LEDs for signal presence, module status
  • [VistaLINK® capable for remote monitoring, control and configuration capabilities via SNMP; using VistaLINK® PRO, CP-2116E or CP-2232E Control Panels. VistaLINK® is available when modules are used with the 3RU 7800FR frame and a 7800FC VistaLINK® Frame Controller module in slot 1 of the frame.

  • Additional Mixer engine allows two different mixer outputs simultaneously
  • 4:4:4 to 4:2:2 conversion for all Auxiliary outputs - up to five Auxiliary outputs are as signable to Mixer, On Screen Display, Left 4:22, Right 4:2:2 and 3D Formatted output functions
  • Applies user programmable 2D Look Up tables to provide linear monitoring outputs when using logarithmic program input video formats
  • Additional Features supported on +STM option
  • Uses IntelliTrak™ technology to measure the temporal mismatch between Left Eye and Right Eye images

3D Format Modes

Side by Side Mode
Left Eye and Right Eye images are each scaled to full height and half the width. Side by Side Order selects which image goes on the left.
Top - Bottom Mode
Left Eye and Right Eye images are each scaled to half the height and full width. Top-Bottom Order selects which image goes on the top.
Line by Line Mode
Left Eye and Right Eye images are each scaled to full height and width. The odd lines from one image are interleaved with the even lines from the other image. Line by Line Order selects which image goes on the top.
Image Flip Processing
Mix Modes
50/50 Blend Mode

Difference Mode
Right Eye image is subtracted from the Left Eye image. Difference Order will subtract Left Eye image from the Right Eye image
Anaglyph Mode

Horizontal Split Mode
Left side is taken from the left of the Left Eye image and right side is taken from the right of the Right Eye image. H Split Order will reverse this. Split position is adjustable with H Split Offset
Luma Difference Mode
Right Eye luma is subtracted from the Left Eye luma. Colour is gray scale only. Difference Order will subtract Left Eye luma from the Right Eye luma
