Teranex 2D>3D -Not just for Millionaires any More - Page 3

post #61 of 128
Remember this unit is not a grab the remote and play. There is no remote. You need to employ other control options such as a lap top. Still as soon as they hit our stockroom, I will be getting one. At this price it is an absolute no brainer particularly if you watch any 1080i content upscaled to 1080p.

Are you aware that this unit has been confirmed as NOT HDCP COMPLIANT? That basicallt leaves Bluray out of the picture unless you get an HDSDI modified unit from JVB.

People need to keep that in mind.

Are we talking the latest version with HDMI ?

While there is no remote mentioned the specifications page lists:
Control Interface Illuminated pushbuttons, status LEDs and LCD with easy onscreen menus

I was told the unit would not pass HDCP material.

Good to know. That must be how they kept the price down.

...That must be how they kept the price down....

More like they don't have any overhead (i.e. employees) like most of their competitors. I've heard rumors from professional users elsewhere that Blackmagic "customer support" is practically nonexistent. The company is based down in Australia, not up here in the U.S.

Although the Realta chip from Silicon Optix (which was a direct port of the SIMD architecture and algorithms used in the Teranex multi-board boxes) is not in any current products that I'm aware of, the spiritual successor HQV Vida chip is available. The HQV Vida, although not containing a programmable SIMD architecture inside, is essentially a direct hardware implementation of the same subset of Teranex algos that were in the Realta, along with some further improvements to the de-interlacing portion and massive improvements to the de-noising portion (compared to a single chip Realta design)

(Disclaimer: I worked for Silicon Optix from inception to shortly before it was bought out by IDT in 2008, worked on the Realta and Reon designs, and was the primary hardware engineer for the de-interlacing portion of the design that became the HQV Vida)

The data sheet for Calibre's VXL-150HD names Realta as the processor. They haven't changed the data sheet in over a year, so I don't know if that is still accurate.

This thread has gone quiet for a while, any update on availability? Also, if still no HDCP, is the only option for using this with movies to use some sort of home-brew using SlySoft (or similar) to remove content protection? Based on what Cineramax did before, it would seem ideal to use this with the K* system, but that doesn't seem possible, any thoughts on how this might work with Kaleidescape?
post #74 of 128
I believe HDfury type of hardware device will resolve the HDCP issues, Slysoft is a different software to allow archiving of protected content

I just checked out HDFury's website, it is a little confusing and it appears that their devices do take HDMI in, but then it seems that they output via DVI or VGA. Do you know if they take in HDMI and put out via HDMI?
post #76 of 128
I haven't used an HDfury device since my G90U, they made a fantastic card that fit right into one of the G90 spare slots. I assume they have an HDMI in/HDMI out type HDFury, if not a simple DVI to HDMI adapter should work on the HDMI in/DVI out. Any HDCP stripper should work.

I looked closer, it looks like the new HD Fury IV device does indeed output via HDMI, see link here: http://www.hdfury.com/products/hdfury4-specs/ It looks like that would be the perfect match for the Teranex box.

Barco has a new version their high-end processor (ImagePro-II) that is HDCP.

Then they bought Davinci who made high end color correctors costing well over $100K. Black Magic came up with a new price schedule in that the base product software is available FREE to download.


Next was Echo Labs who for the past 25+ years made lower end video production switchers. Echo went bankrupt and Black Magic scooped them up and transformed the entire product line into highly affordable prosumer products.


So now they got Teranex and I'm sure it will be the same model.


The Jury is still out on whether this business model will work in the pro video industry. It's not sure if there is enough of a market to support such a pricing model. Time will tell.

And now it has acquired the Telecines/filmscanners from Cintel International:

"Blackmagic Design has acquired the assets of Cintel International, the researcher, designer and manufacturer of motion picture film scanners.

Through this acquisition, following the liquidation of Cintel International earlier in 2012, Blackmagic Design has acquired the intellectual property and all aspects of Cintel’s entire portfolio of film scanning products." http://www.tvbeurope.com/main-content/full/blackmagic-design-acquires-assets-of-cintel-international

Interesting to see if they can get these out cheaply;-).

Now that would be nice, I'd love an affordable telecine unit.

Had me excited there for a second dokworm. Looks like they have adjusted the shipping dates to August for the 2D unit and September for the 3D unit.

We are dealers, so give us a call. : Moreover we will get you one of the first.

Let us know when you have one. I'm definitely interested.
post #85 of 128
€3250 plus tax it said on the Black Magic Booth, the 2D processor was €2K, if I remember correctly.
post #86 of 128
It looks like the 2D version is now shipping.
post #87 of 128
I'm interested in the 3D version. When someone knows when it ships please give us a heads up.
post #88 of 128
The Blackmagic Design site now shows the Teranex 3D Processor "Shipping in Januarary"
post #89 of 128
With the 2D unit shipping, can anyone confirm whether it is HDMI compliant or not?
post #90 of 128
If you're asking whether it is HDCP compliant, the answer is NO. BlackMagic indicates that somewhere in their literature. Otherwise, nice little unit.
