From multicamera production to virtual sets15 September 2017
Technology for 3D virtual studio production, 4K virtual multicamera production, and a 2×2 videowall processor are part of this year’s Datavideo lineup.
This includes the KMU-100, a 4K multicamera production system. For use, the output of a single 4K/UHD camera is connected to the KMU-100, which then displays up to four 16×9 user-defined windows that are sent out as four separate HD signals through HD-SDI.
These user-defined windows can be scaled, and with the RMC-185 controller, users could select a particular subject on the 4K signal.
An additional 4K camera could be connected to the KMU-100 to allow up to eight defined outputs from two 4K signals.
Also on stand is the TVS-2000 3D virtual studio system, which features a chromakeyer that can be used in “simple chromakey” mode or an advanced mode, said Datavideo. In a tracking mode, the movement of the camera is followed by the 3D rendered environment (this option requires the use of up to two Datavideo PTC-150 cameras). The system includes a 3D editing tool to create 3D virtual sets.
Datavideo is also exhibiting its TWP-10 4K Video Wall Processor 2×2, a real-time videowall processor for up to four flat-panel displays. The TWP-10 allows users to input HDMI video up to UHD resolution. The embedded scaler converts signals from HDMI source to match the original resolution of monitors, flat-panel displays, projectors and user-selectable output settings up to 1080p.
Datavideo also reported that it is currently developing a larger 4×4 version which will be
