3D FPV camera The BlackBird 2 is a high-quality and technologically advanced flight stereo camera for flying from first person view (FPV)! The camera generates the stereoscopic analog video in real time using the powerful FPGA chip. The video, which formed The BlackBird 2 has a clear and vivid picture, as it incorporates high-quality video sensor of the company Aptina that allows you to get maximum pleasure from using The BlackBird 2!
The stereo camera The BlackBird 2 is recommended to use as a flight camera on a radio controlled model quadrocopter, cars, aircraft, etc. Also you can use it in your surveillance system!
Features of The BlackBird 2:
- Wireless video transmission in 3D with a single video transmitter (single video channel).
- Video 3D SIDE BY SIDE – a very popular 3D video format supported by many devices: 3D video glasses, 3D TVs, etc.
- Video 3D SIDE BY SIDE CROP 16:9 – special 3D video format for 3D FPV headset type Oculus Rift or other hats built on a single display.
- Video 3D SIDE BY SIDE CROP manual is a manual setting CROP mode.
- 3D INTERLACE video – comfortable 3D video format to work with third-party OSD modules.
- 2D videomode.
- Dual-channel 3D video mode - allows you to obtain the best stereo image.
- The voltage from 5 to 15 Volts and up to 150 mA consumption.
What are the distinctions The BlackBird 2 from the other FPV cameras?
Video in 3D:
People look at the world with two eyes and see its volume, it allows to man to orientate better in the space, gives the sense of speed and distance… When you use traditional 2D FPV camera, it is the same as to look at the world with one eye – to see the world flat, to see the world in 2D. Using 3D FPV camera The BlackBird you will receive 2 new sensations and emotions, you will look at the world with two eyes, you will see the world in volume – to see in 3D!
We wanted to make the camera universal and for this we have provided for various video formats: 3D SIDE BY SIDE 3D SIDE BY SIDE CROP 16:9, 3D SIDE-BY-SIDE CROP manual, INTERLACE 3D, 2D videomode, dual-channel videomode. The extensive number of supported video formats enables you to use flight stereo camera The BlackBird 2 almost with all equipment, whether it be 3D TV/monitor, 3D video glasses or stereogram for FPV.
BlackBird 2 can generate 3D video signal in INTERLACED 3D (field sequential 3D), SIDE BY SIDE full 3D or SIDE BY SIDE 3D crop formats. One video transmitter and one video receiver is used for 3d video signal transmission. This allows you to use BlackBird 2 with a large number of 3D video glasses and video headsets. Usually 3D video glasses use interlaced 3D or SBS full formats. For a single screen video headset (Oculus Rift DK1) the SBS format crop is used. For connection your BlackBird 2 to video glasses without analog (CVBS) video input, you can use the AV to HDMI Converter.
The flight stereo camera The BlackBird 2 has 3 analog video outputs, with which you can simultaneously receive video:
- the first output is needed to receive the 3D/2D video signal in the selected format.
- the second video output gives video in 2D-format from the right sensor.
- the third video output gives video in 2D-format from the left sensor.
The transmission 3D/2D video on one or two channels:
One video channel for the receiving and transmission of 3D video in 3D format SIDE BY SIDE or 3D INTERLACE. You can use one of the standard FPV video transmitter and a video receiver with a frequency of 900 MHz, 1.2 GHz, 2.4 GHz, 5.8 GHz.
Two video channels are for use with video glasses 3D Sky Zone or with any other device (for example Transporter3D) where it is necessary to use two channels of video. You can use two standard FPV video transmitters and two video receiver and two with the frequency of 900 MHz, 1.2 GHz, 2.4 GHz, 5.8 GHz!
We decided to make “The BlackBird 2” really comfortable and more functional than any other flight camera. We want to relieve the user from thinking “where to place the video transmitter…” After all, what could be easier than the installation of the video transmitter module on the camera itself?! For this purpose on the front of the camera is the special connector to receive the video and power. You can install on the camera module the video transmitter or IR-highlighting. You can develop your own module with the features you need and use it as you want!
Size, weight and power of the camera:
3D FPV camera “The BlackBird 2” has small weight - 21 grams and very convenient size – you can set the camera on the copter, glider or RC car! Camera consumes from 5 to 15 Volts, i.e. you can connect 3D FPV camera The BlackBird 2 to the onboard Li-Po battery 2S - 3S.
The BlackBird 2 can be used with any device that supports playback of 3D video format SIDE BY SIDE 3D or 3D INTERLACE, it can be 3D video glasses, 3D TV/monitor, 3D video headset, etc...
