BrightEye 94 SD Aspect Ratio Converter

BrightEye 94 SD Aspect Ratio Converter

  • SD ARC
  • HDMI output
  • 12 and 16 bit processing
  • Timeable output
  • Frame Sync

BrightEye 94 is a standard definition aspect ratio converter. You can easily convert signals from 4:3 to SD 16:9, and vice versa.

All vertical interval data and closed captioning are faithfully passed. Sixteen channels of embedded audio are supported. If the incoming video has embedded audio, the audio will be safely bypassed around the video processing and lipsync will be preserved. An external reference input allows genlock to a house reference.

Input selection, gain control, and test pattern controls are provided through the front panel interface. Audio presence LEDs indicate which channels are detected. Controls for crop, letterbox and pillarbox are accessed from the front panel or BrightEye Mac or PC software. A special Mirror Output Mode can be enabled, causing the output image to be flipped left to right for use with on-camera talent.
