Top Quality, Best User Interface, Great Price


BrightEye 25 converts analog composite video to SD SDI, with simultaneous conversion of four channels of audio and embedding. A TBC/Frame Sync is a standard feature and allows this BrightEye to work with any sort of video input. Great for broadcast and desktop applications, BrightEye 25 can be used with sources such as VTRs and incoming satellite feeds.

The analog input is converted at 12 bits of resolution and digitally decoded to 10 bit YCrCb components. The signal is then time base corrected and frame synchronized to the reference input. The audio is converted to digital and then it passes through the built-in four channel mixer with shuffle and level control. The video and audio signals join up in an embedder which can be targeted to any of the four groups.

Basic controls are accessed on the front panel. BrightEye Mac or PC software provides access to video proc functions and the built-in audio mixer. The vertical interval can be passed or blanked. VU indication is provided on the front panel and through BrightEye Mac or PC software.
