This year at Createasphere’s Entertainment Technology Expo (formerly HD EXPO) in New York, Abel featured the Panasonic AG-3DA1 Integrated Twin-lens 3D Camera Recorder and the Panasonic BT-3DL2550 25.5″ 3D LCD Video Monitor.
The Panasonic AG-3DA1 is the first professional, fully-integrated Full HD 3D camcorder that records to SD card media. The camera records separate right eye, left eye capture to the SD cards and monitoring is made easy by using two SDI feeds to the BT-3DL2550. To create natural-looking 3D video, the convergence point (the point at which the left and right cameras’ optical axes converge) needs to be adjusted to match that of a human’s eyes, which varies according to the closeness of the objects being viewed. Panasonic’s new Full HD 3D camcorder adopts a newly-developed twin-lens system that realizes convergence point control with its integrated design.
