Triple HDMI Module
One of the first modules to be developed features three independent HDMI output ports, each up to 1080p60 4:4:4. This allows to tap into the real time image processing pipeline at different nodes in the pipeline (clean-feed, with overlays, with certain image filters/effects eg. peaking). So this allows three different devices to be connected to the AXIOM Beta simultaneously (eg.: recorder, viewfinder and assistant LCD).
A future software extension could be developed to implement alternating frame output mode to achieve high speed video acquisition (3x 1080p60 = 1080p180).
Per color channel Look-Up-Tables (LUTs) plus gamma adjustment LUTs for flat/log image profile mode per output (fully customizable).
real time matrix color conversion (eg: white-balancing, offsets, channel swapping, channel merging, color effects, color space conversion)
FPN & dead pixel compensation
Corrections for Column and Row ADC Offset as well as per-pixel compensations of Fixed Pattern Noise (FPN) plus real time dead/hot pixel compensation with full access to all parameters & addresses.
Two of the three image sensors we use have higher resolution than the typical output modes, this allows us to show objects in the viewfinder video before they enter the recorded frame.
Real time frame guides, menus, meta information, overlays are fully software configurable/accessible, you can even play Pong.
False Color Display
Use any custom gradient for checking exposure levels, skins tones or to benchmark the uniformity of a greenscreen's illumination. Of course fully configurable.
