The Ensemble Designs 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.

Power supply is included).
