The 3D-Cam FPV uses two cameras to generate field-sequential 3D video which is compatible with most commercial 3D equipment. This video signal can be transmitted using standard NTSC video transmitters and can be recorded using a standard VCR or DVD recorder. Using 3D capable video glasses (like the EVG920 we are offering to our customers) or LCD shutter glasses and a CRT (or 120Hz LCD) allows viewers to experience the scene in life-like 3D. The depth perception provided by this 3D technology is a real asset when piloting aircraft remotely.
The 3D-Cam FPV comes with a sophisticated software which allows the FPV flier to set certain parameters like Exposure and 3D convergence even in flight. Imagine that you are flying late in the evening when the sun is really low on orbit. Flying toward the sun is a real challenge because with most of the cameras the ground becomes very dark. With the 3D-Cam FPV you just turn toward the ground, the AGC will react and lit the ground up, you flip a switch to lock in the Exposure and from there on your ground is clearly lit.
3D viewing is not much help when you are very high above the ground, but when you are coming in for landing - or you are flying close to trees, bushes, objects - it can be a real bonus. The depth of the 3D viewing (convergence) can also be adjusted in flight - as well as you can switch between 2D and 3D modes in flight. All is required an empty channel on your receiver.
The 2 cameras are at a 65mm distance which corresponds to the standard distance of the human eye.
Note from New Generation Hobbies:
We have ground tested these cameras with the manufacturer throughout a 4 hour timeframe, testing all the capabilities, setting different options, changing lenses, and experiencing first hand the 3D effect. We have to tell you the effect is truly amazing, and it is as realistic as it can get with with video goggles. We suggest to have the goggles closed around your eyes for a better 3D immersion experience.
