Convert optical HD or SD video feeds to HDMI and electrical with the BrightEye 81-F. Convenient for feeding a video monitor, BrightEye 81-F provides a reliable way to monitor optical feeds in broadcast and mobile applications.

BrightEye 81-F is an optical to HDMI and electrical converter for use with standard definition video signals and 3 Gb/s and 1.5 Gb/s high definition signals. The video input is received on an optical LC connector, converted, and then output on both a BNC connector and an HDMI connector. The HDMI output is not HDCP encrypted.

For facilities using 3G, the issue of monitoring the signal becomes a challenge. A 3G video signal can be easily viewed via the HDMI output.

Signal monitoring and control is provided through the included BrightEye Mac and BrightEye PC software.

Power supply is included).
