BrightEye 1 is a comprehensive solution to signal acquisition. With analog component, analog composite S-Video (Y/C), and SDI video inputs, it can take on any video source. The built-in Time Base Corrector/Frame Synchronizer provides a rock steady output N even with marginal inputs. The reference input is used to genlock the converter output to house reference such as color black.

Front panel controls select input source and format and adjust video gain. Video levels can be adjusted through BrightEye PC.

Simultaneous SDI (electrical) and Optical outputs are provided, so you can deliver the signal just about anywhere. Both Color Bars and the SDI Checkfield (Pathological) test patterns are included to facilitate transmission path testing.

Power supply is included.
