We have a system that we can not change. Systems output is 2D video in DisplayPort format. Video is in 1080 p resolution and 120 Hz. We need to convert this 2D video to 3D in realtime. We will be able to get 3D depth map. Now, I have to prepare a preliminary design report. So I kinda have to figure out how to convert 2D video to 3D.
And I think FPGA is not an option since minimum data rate is 1.62 Gb/s and FPGA can not handle this much data processing. So it leaves embedded linux as an option. Thus first question: Am I right so far? If not, why?
Secondly, what are my options in specific? I think of Rasberry pi and beaglebone. Second question: Are there any other options? I already designed a backlight unit, active shutter glass and synchronizer and now I need to implement 3D conversion block on an external circuit. Have can I do that? Is it so hard? Should I go with rasberry pi? And secondly, can rasperry pi handle displayport and 3D conversion?
So to summarize:
1) Can raspberry pi handle the 3D video conversion from DisplayPort?
2) How can I do 3D conversion in Raspberry pi? Can you give me any examples?
3) Could you explain the 3D conversion (with given depth map) method in general?
