DepthQ®Capture™DepthQ®Capture™ for Stereoscopic Media
DepthQ Capture is a powerful software solution for the ingest, recording and monitoring of stereo 3D video from two simultaneous camera inputs at up to dual HD resolution.

Features include low latency, real-time monitoring, a camera alignment aid and visual overlays to assist in optimizing your 3D effects for various target playback screens.

DepthQ Capture ingests your two independent video sources (or single camera stereoscopic source), whether Analog, HD-SDI, HDMI, FireWire or USB. It then concatenates them together as an above/below image to preserve sync and processes the result - applying any compression required. Lastly, it serves the final stereo data as a single data stream to any 3D (or 2D) monitoring device at the required resolution, frame rate, and encoding standard for that display.

For instance, if the 3D monitoring display is the DepthQ HDs3D2 video projector, DepthQ Capture transforms the input to the required 1280x720 resolution in a frame-sequential (L-R-L-R) VESA-VGA format at 120 frames per second.

Simultaneously, with the click of a button, DepthQ Capture can record this stream to hard disk for later playback via DepthQ Player, or for editing and post-production in standard video processing software. The entire process - from capture through processing and delivery is accomplished with extremely low latency for critical realtime monitoring.

DepthQ Capture runs under both Windows® XP and Windows 7, and supports Lightspeed Design's included DQ3D codec (as well as any other codec with adequate performance to capture dual stream full HD data).

At this time Lightspeed recommends Windows XP for greatest stability.
