3D Support for 882/881 Video Test Generators for HDMI
The current firmware release for 882/881 Video Test Generators for HDMI includes
3D test image generation with the structures of Frame Packing, Line Alternative,
Side-By-Side Full, Side-By-Side Half, Top & Bottom, and L+Depth.
The 882/881 will also generate the proper Vendor-Specific Infoframe to indicate
the current 3D format and structure.
The 882/881 3D capabilities rely on the use of pre-made bitmap images that contain
the proper frame structure. So for example, a Frame Packing enabled bitmap will
have the left-eye field at the top of the image, the right-eye field at the bottom,
and some blank lines between the fields. We have a free software tool that allows you to
create 3D test images from your own left-eye/right-eye image sets. This tool, along
with a set of sample source images, is available at the 3D Bitmap Conversion Tool
link at the left.
We also have a variety of sample 3D bitmaps that you can download. See the
Sample 3D Bitmaps link on the left.

3D Application Note for full details.

The 980 Protocol Analyzer for HDMI can analyze 3D video formats as well as parse
the vendor-specific infoframe to validate the 3D fields. For details on the 980,
