Undoubtedly, there are signal and artificially generate a 3D signal.some of you right now that are rolling your eyes and saying toyourselves: “Who’d be interested in 3D? There are hardly any 3D The fact that 3D is really making steps forward can be seen in achannels available!” third report in this issue of TELE-satellite: the artificial creation of a 3D channel can be further pushed so that the results can beIn principle you’d be right, but the reality looks quite a bit different. seen on autostereoscopic TV screens. You can then enjoy the 3DLet’s take a look at HD: the amazing thing about digital TV signals experience without the need for any special glasses.(compared to analog TV signals) is that you can have so much funplaying around with digital signals. When high resolution (HD) TV If you look at this development from the outside, the trend isappeared a few years ago it didn’t take long for receivers to appear obvious: it won’t be long before receivers will have anotherwith built-in upscalers. The upscaler takes a normal SD (standard abbreviation stenciled alongside HD on the front panel: 3D. Anddefinition) channel and electronically converts it to an HD channel. then, just like now where nearly every receiver is an HD box thanksPresto, all at once you can watch every TV channel in HD; it’s alljust a question of the receiver software. to the upscaler, soon nearly all of these receivers will become 3D receivers thanks to a built-in converter.Once the receiver manufacturers recognized this so that today nearlyevery receiver out there is an HD model with a built-in upscaler, In this way, receivers have taken yet another step in separatingit didn’t take long for broadcasters themselves to “upscale” their themselves from TV channels: it doesn’t matter if a TV channelprogramming to HD. That’s the reason why you’re seeing more and transmits in HD or in 3D or whether it’s just normal SD or 2D, themore HD channels appear. Many broadcasters simply take their receiver converts every TV channel into an HD and 3D channel.old movies and series and artificially inflate them to HD quality via The TV channel really no longer has any direct relationship with thesoftware. Can the viewers really tell the difference? receiver anymore: the receiver only uses the picture information to create its own HD and 3D channel.By now, many of you are probably chiming in saying, yeah ok,you can upscale SD channels to HD, but that would never work The true providers are the receivers!with 3D. How are you supposed to artificially create a thirddimension? SincerelyBelieve it or not, it can be done! In one of our feature stories inthis issue of TELE-satellite we describe how you can theoreticallytake a two dimensional picture and magically convert it to threedimensions. But, in truth, it really isn’t magical at all. A logicalextrapolation is taken from the picture information after whichsoftware converts it electronically.If you’re response to this is that, yeah maybe you can do thistheoretically, but that’s about it, then it gives me great pleasure Alexander Wieseto say that we’re presenting another report in this issue of TELE- TELE-satellite Editor-in-Chief TELE satellite Address TELE-satellite Magazine, PO Box 1234, 85766 Munich-Ufg, GERMANY/EUROPE Editor-in-Chief Alexander Wiese, alex@TELE-satellite.com Published by TELE-satellite Medien GmbH, Aschheimer Weg 19, 85774 Unterfoehring, GERMANY/EUROPE Design Németi Barna Attila Advertising www.TELE-satellite.com/ads/ Hardcopy Subscriptions www.TELE-satellite.com/secure/eng/ Printer Blackprint Nyomdaipari Kft, Tenkefürdő utca 3, 1044 Budapest, HUNGARY/EUROPE Copyright © 2011 by TELE-satellite ISSN 1435-7003 TELE-satellite was established in 1981 and today is the oldest, largest and most-read digital tv trade magazine in the world.

For playback, the question becomes how to get these two images to the eyes of the viewer. One way would be to deliver the two images individually left and right to each eye of the viewer or you sim- ply bypass this method and generate a three-dimensional picture right on the monitor. ■ iPONT’s secret is hidden inside this server box: the software that converts the 3D signals so that they can be viewed on an auto-stereoscopic monitor without any special glasses.148 TELE-satellite — Global Digital TV Magazine — 08-09/201 — www.TELE-satellite.com 1

  • 135. FEATURE 3 Dimensional TelevisionSoftware automatically createsthe third dimension (depth)Jacek pawlowski The majority of all television pro-gramming content is two-dimensional(width x hight). It is best viewed withone single eye. However, most peo-ple are using two eyes, which enablesthem to notice if an object is closer orfarther away. This is the depth, whichis the third dimension. But there is notmuch programming content in 3 di-mensions on the market. So what todo, when we all prefer to watch withboth our eyes and therefore wouldwelcome the third dimension in all ourtelevision viewing? You could wait for generic 3D contentto be produced over time, but smartsoftware engineers came up with asolution to artificially create the thirddimension out of two-dimensional con-tent. So how do they do it? We took acloser look behind the scenes and liftedthe curtain to their amazing tricks. Generally, to convert 2D picture to Fig. 1 Depth can be recognized from object sharpness.3D, we need to make two steps. Step1 is to assign depth information to vari-ous parts of the 2D picture. Step 2 isto show the original picture to one eyeand create the additional picture forthe second eye. In technical literature,these steps are referred to as: DepthMap Estimation and Depth Image BasedRendering. Let’s first discuss depth estimation.There are various cues our brain usesto asses depth in the observed picturebut in the automatic conversion usuallythe following three ones are most oftenused: 1. depth from blur 2. vanishing point based estimation 3. depth from motion parallax “Depth from blur” takes into accountthe focal sharpness of the different ob-ject on the screen assuming that thecloser objects are sharper than those Fig. 2. vanishing point – a well know concept to everybody who attended art lessons in school is also a very good clue for picture depth estimation. Thefurther away and the very distant ones boat-house is closer to the vanishing point thus it is farther away than theare quite hazy – see Figure 1. flowers.178 TELE-satellite — Global Digital TV Magazine — 08-09/201 — www.TELE-satellite.com 1

Although it really perfect result. This is a very evision.may look quite difficult to perform thisoperation, actually it is easier in MPEGcoded pictures than the previous twomethods. This method is widely usedin 2D-to-3D digital TV conversion. Depth estimation produces depthmap for the picture in which everypixel gets additional 8 bit informationdepicting its depth (0-255 decimally).0 is the farthest value and 255 is theclosest value. Such maps are thensmoothed in special filters and in thisway some errors are removed. Now that we have the original pic-ture plus its depth map, we can startthinking of creating the picture forthe second eye. This process com-bines two operations: object warpingand holes filling by averaging texturesfrom neighborhood pixels. Object warping is explained in Fig-ure 3. Having depth information, theprocessor can re-project the object in3D space and then calculate its view asseen from the perspective of the sec-ond eye. Due to warping, objects on the pic-ture are shifted and stretched orsqueezed. This is true especially forthe near objects. This leads to holecreation in the original picture. Theholes need to be filled with something.This is not an easy task for the proces-sor and various algorithms have beenproposed to do that in the right way.Of course, the neighboring areas aretaken into account but sometimes the Fig. 3.

Founded in 1985 the companylaunched its first satellite ASTRA 1A in December of 1988.This was also the first commercially successful DTH (direct-to-home) satellite in Europe and thanks to clever market-ing strategies SES ASTRA was successful in acquiring in-creasing numbers of renowned broadcasting customers. ■ markus payer, vice president media Relations, reveals surprising expansion plans to TELE-satellite readers More channels in turn meant more viewers, as an attractive channel line-up motivated more and more Europeans to have a satellite an- tenna installed.

Yet, just like in the past the status quo is never the final goal for SES ASTRA and that is why the company is currently in the process of tapping into new markets once again. All the more reason for TELE-satellite to embark on a journey to tiny Luxembourg and pay a visit to Chateau Betzdorf, which used to be the resi- dence of the Grand Duke of Luxembourg and these days provides an impressive backdrop to an equally impressive high-tech facility that is second to none. The number of antennas set up there is so high you simply lose count – it all starts with 15 giants featuring a diameter of 12 meters each which are used to monitor and control the broadcasting satellites in orbit.

While these huge antennas are truly striking, there is of course a whole range of smaller trans- mission and reception antennas at the chateau’s antenna farm. “Altogether, we operate 40 large communication facilities at this location,” adds Gaetano Ligotti, “which are used to control our satellites and to feed them with content.” Next to these giants there are count- less smaller antennas without uplink LNBs, which are for reception purposes only. “This is where we receive signals from our content customers,” explains Andreas Breuer at the Program Con- ■ These 12 meter giants can be found at SES ASTRA headquarters in Luxembourg.

Here he can be seen working at Remote Spectrum monitoring, which means remote monitoring of all SES ASTRA satellites around the world. All he has to do is select the required satellite on a list to obtain comprehensive technical parameters via SES ASTRA’s internal data network, which provides direct access to 15 SES reception station worldwide. Once a link is established Andreas Breuer is able to check the entire broadcasting spectrum of the satellite in question. 3. Who transmits what? These guys decide which transponder on which satellite are fed which signal. Four broadcasting engineers are on duty at any given time to keep an eye on important parameters. They really need to be up to their task all the time, because nothing is worse than a signal being fed to the wrong transponder. 4. The Ground Operating Center is responsible for the technical state of all satellite antennas. Signal routes are shown on monitors, and employees such as senior technician Claude Hennuy are able to identify whether or not each component operates flawlessly.
