Marshall Electronics has unveiled the "world's first" autostereoscopic 3D ("glasses-free") 7-inch portable monitor at IBC 2011.
The ORCHID® OR-70-3D lightweight 3D monitor is the latest addition to Marshall Electronics' line of 3D monitoring solutions.
Marshall Electronics, a leading manufacturer of professional LCD monitors for broadcast, studio, and television production, says the monitor does not require passive or active glasses and can be used as a camera viewfinder or portable 3D production display.
"Marshall continues to support the growth and expansion of global 3D production," said Nathan Mordukhay, VP of sales & marketing.
"The OR-70-3D is now the most versatile and technologically advanced 3D monitoring solution available to filmmakers and content producers."
The new monitor follows last year's 3D-241- HDSDI 24-inch stereoscopic 3D LCD monitor, which is currently being used on a number of high-budget 3D projects around the world.
The OR-70-3D uses parallax barrier and lenticular hybrid technology to provide superior 3D images with 1600 x 600 screen resolution.
For precision 3D calibration, the monitor also provides dual real-time Waveform and Vectorscope, along with various 3D analysis features including Check Box, Difference, Blending and Compare.
Integrated mux and independent loop-through eliminate the requirement of an additional external converter, while elay-compensated horizontal mirror flip supports both channels respectively.
The OR-70-3D also supports large battery adapters and 1/4"-20 mounting for mobility and flexibility, and includes the following features:
- Compare Box: a 3D calibration onscreen tool which compares a specific region of both channels with easy-to-read graphs for Y, R, G, B with numeric display, providing precise 3D camera alignment
- Check Box (Checkerboard): provides a quilted layout of both left and right channels for depth check, channel difference
- Emboss (Alpha-Channel View): a full frame Embossed or Luminance Difference View shows the difference between Left Eye and Right Eye.
- H Marker: a new horizontal marker provides a ruler for 3D depth control.
Other new ORCHID® products being showcased at IBC 2011 include the fully-featured OR-181 18.5" Rack Mount / Desktop Production Monitor and OR-XDI Portable Battery-Powered 3G-SDI to HDMI Cross Converter.
