It is, at that time, a stereoscopic anaglyphic 3D system, which had the famous shifted image, with red and blue colours; the delta between the two colours gave depth to viewer vision, deceived by two filters, red on the right and blue on the left. These filters were mounted on "beautiful" cardboard glasses, distributed by a television magazine from Lagardère Group.
Then in the 2000s, stereoscopic technology evolves:
- polarization, which uses polarized filter glasses, enables the right eye to see the left image and vice versa ; and this, with a single projected image ( RealD Process
- stereoscopic LCD shutter, which masks an image on two, alternating left and right, and with glasses which must be perfectly synchronized with the projection to deceive the brain ( XpanD Process
DC Audiovisuel, distributor of Denecke products for France, offers for rent or sale, the new SB-T3D synchronization box.
Best known for his blue TC boxes, often used in France on movie cameras, Denecke has designed a model that can now supply TC and TriLevelSync signal (Video Sync HD) to two cameras! This special version of SB-T, in a single sturdy box, is still enabled by a TCXO temperature compensated, which no longer has to prove its worth. It can synchronize the sound and a set of two RED Epic cameras, these cameras which do not use connectors like the others…
The dimensions of the SB-T3D are the same as the SB-T: 4.475" x 2.90" x 1.050", 0.750 lbs, with 3 LR6 batteries that provide over 48 hours battery life.
DC Audiovisuel can also provide the new and very useful Denecke GR-2 master clock. Compact, 3.25" x 3" x 1.75" for a 0.50 lbs weight, powered by two LR6, with a battery life over 48 hours, it is the Swiss Army knife of Time Code Management, especially on a film set with four cameras, even if two cameras don't have the same HD format.
