DepthQ®Player(TM)
DepthQ®PlayerTM is a feature-packed software solution
for the high-quality playback of stereoscopic 3D (s3D) movies
from a standard PC.


Easy to use and designed from the ground up as a professional
product, DepthQ®PlayerTM combines efficient code architecture
and superior throughput for flawless, high-bandwidth playback of
either locally stored or URL-accessible stereoscopic movies, as
well as s3D streaming IP video.

DepthQ®PlayerTM delivers the most comfortable-to-view stereo 3D
experience possible, and allows cost-effective viewing of high-
resolution stereoscopic media in a wide variety of environments –
from remote 3D viewing stations, operating rooms and conference
rooms to s3D cinemas, museum exhibits, portable theaters, motion
simulators, corporate events and trade shows.



TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION

DepthQ®PlayerTM is available in three configurations:

  • LITE – A free-to-download fully-functional demonstration version capable of displaying up to 1920x1080 60P* per eye and beyond. Intended as evaluation software, DepthQ®PlayerTM LITE incorporates a subtle watermark, with modest restricted operating time and playlist functionality.
  • STANDARD – A licensed commercial version capable of displaying up to 1920x1080 60P* per eye.
  • PRO – A licensed professional version capable of displaying up to 1920x1080 60P* per eye and beyond, with enhanced feature-set and functionality.

  • *Note: High-bandwidth outputs require more powerful CPU’s and GPU’s.
DepthQ®Player(TM) supports a wide variety of output 'flavors'

PRODUCT DETAILS







Each configuration, LITE, STANDARD or PRO, is capable of displaying flicker-free 120 Hz stereoscopic 3D video, which at it's highest quality is the equivalent of two simultaneous streams of HD digital video. It's a lot of data. For example, a full-resolution HD 3D film made up of two separate streams of 1920x1080 60P would be stored in a concatenated stereoscopic format (e.g. above/below or side-by-side) at a resolution of 1920x2160 or 3840x1080 respectively.

The player also accepts a wide variety of other input movie format types, from interlaced and synch-doubled, to rotated side-by-sides (SIS, Tri-Delta) to anamorphic side-by-sides and above/belows.

During playback, DepthQ®PlayerTM can display your films in a variety of selectable output 'flavors' in order to drive the many different types of stereoscopic displays available, including the highest-quality stereoscopic format - progressive "page flip" (frame sequential) - at refresh rates up to 120 Hz. DepthQ®PlayerTM is also fully compatible with NVIDIA® 3D VisonTM.

Additionally, DepthQ®PlayerTM supports both single and dual graphics output pipelines. Single output pipelines are for display with single-lens projectors like the DepthQ® HDs3D-1 projector, '3D-Ready' plasma monitors, LCD displays and rear-projection DLP® monitors, as well as CRTs (using active shutter glasses). Dual graphics output pipelines are for display with two-projector passive displays (using polarizing glasses).

  • Movie Time Code Editor: New Automation Functions include pre-programmed, time-based adjustments of IN/OUT points, parallax offsets, pause and volume within a movie using internal time code (PRO & LITE only).
  • Cg parameters now saved in movie-specific configuration files, allowing each movie to utilize independent Cg code selection and parameter adjustments (PRO & LITE only).
  • Ability to generate configuration files for Girder, a third party automation software package (PRO & LITE only).

TECHNICAL FEATURES

  • Primary display output: progressive OpenGL quad-buffered frame sequential "page-flip" (Analog RGB, Digital DVI).
