Exclusive Filtering and Scaling Technology


A superior quality scan converter, BrightEye Mitto has the advantage of proprietary scaling technology and exclusive multi-tap filtering. Even a small part of the computer screen, such as a YouTube video, will be upconverted to full screen HD. The region selected for output determines if Mitto acts as an upconverter or downconverter. The filters automatically adjust in accordance with the conversion being performed. The result is that the output looks as good, or better, than the original and passes the most stringent testing.



Easy To Use


BrightEye PC and BrightEye Mac software let you simply use your mouse to click and drag over the specific portion of computer video that you want to output. The beauty of this user interface is that you can see which parts of the screen you don’t want to output, as well as the parts you do want to use. The perspective of seeing the whole screen gives you the ability to choose exactly which portion of the video you want to output. It’s easy to output the entire screen or just a selected portion.



Use Your Mouse To Select What Will Be Output to Video


BrightEye PC/Mac software runs overtop of any video, website or software. The Selection Tool shows up as a black box around your selection and shows the portion of the video that will be output from BrightEye Mitto.


Resize the selection window by clicking and dragging with your mouse. Mitto’s video output automatically goes to pillar box or letter box as needed. Mitto maintains perfect aspect ratio.


From the software you also have complete and intuitive control of timing, video format, and video level adjustments. You can easily time BrightEye Mitto into a production switcher or router. Plus, presets enable you to store your favorite settings.



Digital and Analog Video and Audio


The intuitive front panel interface makes it easy to choose the desired video output format. Composite video is simultaneously output on a separate BNC. The genlock reference input allows the video outputs to be timed to house.


The audio input accepts analog audio. AES is optional. Audio is embedded into the SDI outputs which is required for many high end applications. Audio delay controls let you adjust the audio withrespect to video for perfect lip sync, which is crucial when using Skype video in a production environment.
