TV TuneUp 3D sends stereoscopic and standard test signals to displays and projectors connected to the iPad via HDMI, analog video adapters, or AirPlay. In addition to a suite of standard professional-grade test signals for formats from NTSC to HDTV, TV TuneUp 3D offers an 'Executive Mode' with step-by-step instructions that let anyone tune a display for a presentation or movie night, in just minutes. In 3D Mode, TV TuneUp 3D delivers 3D video in top-and-bottom or side-by-side modes, with an alignment grid and precise overscan control. 3DTV owners or buyers can easily test and compare crosstalk levels, on different systems or with different glasses, even right in the store. TV TuneUp 3D provides calibrated stereoscopic parallax samples, indispensable for optimizing home-theater seating conditions to avoid uncomfortable viewing. TV TuneUp 3D is available now in the AppStore.
