BrightEye 57 is a genlockable sync generator and test signal generator that can be used as either a slave or master reference generator. It can lock to house reference or it can lock to its own internal precision standard. BrightEye 57 is well suited for remote trucks, post, helicopters and fly packs.

1.5 Gb/s HD, 3 Gb/s HD or SD SDI test signals or black with embedder is output on the SDI BNCs. 3G Level A and Level B are supported. Composite, HD Tri-Level Sync and AES digital audio outputs are also provided. There are three user Programmable Outputs that are selectable between AES, LTC, Wordclock or 6 Hz Pulse. Analog audio and AES outputs provide tone or silence.

Color Black, Bars, Crosshatch, Multi-burst, and SDI Checkfield (Pathogenic) are just some of the signals simultaneously available on the SDI and analog composite outputs. The Cyclops feature adds a motion element to the selected video test signal. An ID slate with user programmable text can overlay the test pattern.

The internal Time Code Generator feeds DVITC on the SDI outputs and VITC on the composite outputs, Time Code can also be selected in LTC form on the programmable Aux outputs.

In addition to the standard suite of test patterns, users can create custom test patterns on a computer. Using BrightEye Pattern Generator software, simply transfer test patterns to the included Secure Digital flash memory card and then insert the memory card into the front of the BrightEye 57. Test patterns can include motion and an associated audio clip such as voice over or station ID. File formats supported: .tga, .wav, .mp3, .wma.

Many controls can be adjusted through the intuitive front panel. BrightEye Mac and PC software provide a complete user interface for all adjustments and controls.

For facilities and manufacturers using 3 Gb/s video, BrightEye units can be combined to form a complete 3G signal chain. The BrightEye 57 test signal generator's 3G output can be distributed through the BrightEye 43 3G distribution amplifier or the BrightEye 46 and BrightEye 48 E/O 3G fiber optical transmitter/receiver set.

Power supply and 2 GB SD Flash Memory Card are included.
