The current video chain is: QuVis video server with dual stream (left and right) HD-SDI output. This goes into a Black Magic 3D box that converts it to HDMI 1.4 in a frame packed format. This goes into the VIP that turns it into frame sequential. From the VIP we go into a Christie Mirage HD 6k projector that doubles the frame rate and projects it. We are using Christie glasses and a NuVision emitter, both if which work well.
Our first surprise is that the VIP converts 1080 material to 720 so we lose a little resolution and have to rescale it. But we just can't get 29.97/30p material to work. It also takes 23.98/24 material and does a 3/2 process to turn it into 60 fps. We can live with that although it causes visible judder.
The VIP data sheet mentions 1080p 30 frame packed but we can't seem to make it work.
I tried looking at a Christie HD6 manual but it looked like the version I downloaded already have 3D capability. But then you wouldn't need
the Theater if your model were already 3D capable.
Glancing through it there are quite a few customization options that may have a bearing but with the other devices you are using for reprocessing, I am not astute enough to understand their impact on that projector's options.
For instance, in the 1080P/30 mode that is not working, is the projector running under "frame lock' or "free running" setting? Might be an area
Of course I don't own anything as sophisticated as what you are using.
I can only recommend that you try to reach Jonathan and perhaps he can have his partner assist you. I talked to Jonathan Wednesday so it is my understanding that he will be doing a lot of intermittent travel starting this weekend, so there may be some delay before he can respond.
I will PM his phone number and the support email address. In the email outline
what you have done above but make sure you include "full" model numbers so they can download what they need.
Sorry I couldn't provide a better answer.
