Advanced Media Trading has introduced a solution that allows the recording and instant review of stereoscopic 3D footage.
The SI-3D system combines a 3D camera system made up of two Silicon Imaging SI-2K Mini cameras with a field recorder.
According to Advanced Media, it is the only available working system that can sync-record two signals and combine them into a single stereo file. The SI-3D shoots uncompressed and CineForm Raw 2K or HD footage.
The 3D field recorder and playback system features an Intel Quadcore CPU, removable RAID-SSD, an 8” touchscreen monitor and HD-SDI output.
“The SI-3D camera system streamlines the entire stereo 3D content acquisition and post production process,” explained Ari Presler, CEO of Silicon Imaging.
“Combining two cameras into a single control, processing and recording platform enables shooting and instant playback like a traditional 2D camera with the added tools needed on-set to analyse and adjust the lighting, color, flip orientation and stereo depth effects.”
The system will cost the equivalent of Euros 60,000.
Advanced Media also has two 3D rigs from P+S Technik available: the Freestyle and Standard. The rigs can be used with existing cameras, provided both are identical and are fitted with identical lenses.
