Support of 3D replays became for our company a logical step. We are for a long time in business of instant repays. We also debuted, and quite successful in the field of 3D cinematography. In addition to traditional requirements of sport replays, the 3D environment imposes new ones.
First of all it is the need for doubling the number of channels. Since slomo.tv is the industry leader in channel density, this was not a real problem. Our Dominator and Dominator AT systems offer up to 8 recording channels in one module; BlackJack provides up to 12 switchable channels, allowing any combination of input and output. Nobody except us offers six channels of 3D in one module.
Second, doubling the number of channels generates 3D-specific issues during playback. There must be not only a synchronous playback of dual channels, but for a smooth transition from one camera to another all four channels have to be synchronized. We successfully overcame both these issues and achieved smooth 3D replays and transitions.
Finally, it is necessary to assure the 3D mode for the videographer. This technology was perfected in developing of our system for 3D cinematography - STARR, which is also available for 3D replays. Control of the 3D image does not require a stereo projector, just a special monitor and stereo glasses.
Besides the basic functions STARR; can be used to adjusting the 3D cameras.
