    BE46 - Overview

    The Ensemble Designs BrightEye 46 is an electrical to optical converter and distribution amplifier that can be used with standard definition video signals, 3 Gb/s and 1.5 Gb/s high definition signals, or ASI signals. The video input is reclocked and presented on four BNCs and is also converted to an optical signal and presented on an optical LC connector. This optical output can drive single mode fiber to a distance of 20 kilometers. With an optical launch power attenuator, multi-mode fiber can also be used with BrightEyes.

    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).
