BrightEye 48 3G/HD/SD/ASI Optical to Electrical Converter

BrightEye 48 3G/HD/SD/ASI Optical to Electrical Converter

  • Optical Receiver
  • Use with HD or SD Signals
  • Use with ASI Signals
  • Passes Embedded Audio
  • Optical to Electrical Converter
  • 3G HD, Level A or Level B supported
  • Serves as a Distribution Amplifier

BrightEye 48 is an optical to electrical converter that can be used with standard definition video signals, 3 Gb/s and 1.5 Gb/s high definition signals, or ASI signals. The optical input is converted to electrical form and the resulting serial digital signal is reclocked and delivered to BNC outputs. Providing six electrical outputs, the BrightEye 48 also serves as a distribution amplifier. An input status indicator shows whether a proper optical signal is detected at the converter input.

This is a simple device with no USB port and no interface to BrightEye Mac or PC software. Front panel indicators show the presence of an input signal and power.
