Stereo 3D Toolset(with VIEW_3D option)

Offering both features seen in other 3D analysis tools and some unique to OmniTek

Visualisation of embedded disparity data

• Displayed through Difference image; also visible as areas of red/cyan in Anaglyph
• Difference larger where object is further away from screen plane

Comparison against Depth Budget

• Disparities interpreted as coloured Depth Map
• Points closer than Budget shown red, points further than Budget shown violet
• Option of just showing points that are in error
• Also shown in form of histogram, against markers showing Depth Budget

3D Depth Plan

• Plan of the objects seen by the viewer as seen from above
• Same colour coding used as on Depth Map
• Minimum and Maximum Budget distances and Screen plane all marked.
• XYZ coordinates in Viewer’s world shown in top right-hand corner of display

Elevation View

• Version of 3D Depth Plan showing the scene as seen from one side
Crosshairs on these views exactly correspond to each other and to the crosshair on the 3D Depth Map and the various Picture displays

Responsive to Different Screen Sizes

• Depth Plan and Elevation Views respond instantly to changes in screen width and viewer distance allowing testing across range of possible projection scenarios

Colour Matching

• Visual Comparison either through alternating left and right images
• Or through Checkerboard of alternate squares from left and right (as shown here)
• 3D Waveform, comprising alternating sections of left and right image waveforms
• Anaglyph Vectorscope: Left and right vectorscope traces coloured red and cyan, overlaid to show differences
• 3D Pixel Histogram, comprising either individual overlaid pixel histograms or a set of ‘difference’ histograms

Loudness Monitoring (with AUDIO option)

• Loudness assessed in accordance with BS.1770-1, EBU TECH 3341 and 3342
• Both Channel-pair and Programme values for Momentary; Short-term and Integrated Loudness calculated
• Programme value shown alongside Surround Sound PPMs
• Trace and histogram displays of Loudness History
• Relative and Safety Gates to ensure correct handling of start and end of programmes and of silence within a programme
