Yes I'm joking... biggrin.gif I have used the Black Magic product line in my editing suite and the capture cards & devices I've had (none as frickin awesome as the VC1000) are reliable. I mainly used the hdmi to upconvert footage from various digital cameras... But as has been alluded to, we all know the work arounds to pass all hdmi signals.

There were 40,000 people parading in Havana harbor against any aid to the refugees(quite frankly the US didn't want anything to do with them either), but my GF struggled, risked position and was harrased for doing this but he got them visas to Cuba and to the US(under some intellectual property treasure loophole as these were Pilsner master Brewers) , years later my brother was looking at forms to submit him for YAD VASHEM induction. So we are all very much aware of your plight. Now there is a movie script with a Cuban motif.


I simply was denouncing a very negative concerted effort coming out of Germany today-counterfeit 3D.



After years of searching here is the patriarch of the family taken out of the ships back to Germany at the Cuban harbor : Eric Brach

My Grandfather being friends with FDR, his brother being a founder of the league of nations, and yes my father and mother worked tirelessly to save this family, who were allowed to disembark of the grounds of pilsner method intellectual property experts.

The most important thing is that at 6 I learned about the spirit of the holidays with this family legend:

Here is your proof:

At the end of the video in this link is an interview with Peter (Cineramax) from a few years ago of what he thinks about the Black Magic Teranex's 2D to 3D conversion.

I now have the Teranex up and running and converting 2D into 3D. This is the best conversion I've seen and I've seen a few. 3D is a big deal to me, although I'm fully cognizant that many here don't really care for it. I'm now watching all my favourite 2D movies in 3D and loving it. So there!

I have had the BlackMagic Teranex 3D processor running for a couple of months now. I use it with the Sim2 Super Lumis projector fed by an OPPO Blu-ray player. I have tried to get others on board and I believe I was able to convince Deja Vu to try it. He has the love of 3D that I do and I know that there is not another product available at anywhere near the cost of this unit that can touch it for 2d to 3D conversion. I can throw anything at it, old SciFi movies on DVD, any and all Blu-ray movies. It makes no difference, it adds to the enjoyment and am glad I went this route.

Yes, and thanks to Kim and Cineramax for their help. There are some great people on this forum -- I'm not very technical and I need to have someone hold my hand when trying to solve set up issues.

The have a new model, the 2D Express for $1395! This box is somewhat scaled down from the 2D model but does have 4K upconversion capability. But no HDMI I/O so you would need a 4K HDSDI to HDMI converter which they also make. This is clearly not an HT product at all.

http://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/teranexexpress

Note that the older 2D and 3D units are still current products.

I have the older 2D unit and love it.

As soon as I can afford to upgrade my 1080 3chip DLP to a 3D model, I'll be getting one of these 2D -> 3D processors! But I have a feeling by the time that happens, I'll want the 4K 3chip DLP model instead. So by then I'll need a 1080/2D -> 4K/3D Teranex processor!?!?

Good point Waterman. although because our 3d is not 4k 3D only 10 movies for large format screens or so are availble in dcp.

What we did at the 4k 3d lab was put the teranex before the barco and let it upconvert to 4k -looks fantastic.

I never thought id be telling a client to use the system in 3d at all times but with a big , bright, short thro wide angle it actually looks more organic than 2d! Im so happy to see you guys getting the best benefits of Star Wars Spy Satellite technology in your HT's.

I've now thrown some really tough material at the Teranex, material which has tripped up some other 3D converters I've used and the Teranex has handled it all without a hiccup. Peter was right on the money with his praise for this 3D processor. This is a must have for the five or so of us that love 3D.

Sorry to bump this thread, but I was wondering if anyone had any SD to 1080p side by side comparisons ? I was considering the 2D or express if the conversion quality is good.
