BrightEye 16 is a digital to analog video converter with a timeable output. It's perfect for feeding analog switchers and routers, where signal timing is required. It's also a disembedder and provides four analog audio outputs.

With timing controls, proc adjustments, and a built-in audio mixer, BrightEye 16 provides a complete solution for digital to analog conversion.

BrightEye 16 has an SDI video input and a reference input. The input signal is converted to analog composite and synchronized (genlocked) to the reference signal. The analog composite output is fully timed with respect to the reference, including ScH phase. Audio is disembedded with 24 bit precision and converted to analog.

Basic controls are accessed on the front panel. BrightEye PC provides access to video proc functions and the built-in audio mixer. The vertical interval can be passed or blanked. VU indication is provided on the front panel and through BrightEye PC.

Power supply is included.
