    BEM-2 - Overview

    When is a scan converter not just a scan converter? When it's an Ensemble Designs BrightEye Mitto BEM-2 Scan Converter!
    The BrightEye Mitto family of high performance scan converters provide a new way to take just about any source to SD, HD and 3G SDI video. Computer video can now be used for the most demanding applications including broadcast, mobile, high-end military, medical, classroom, worship and corporate. Video that once seemed constrained by your computer desktop can now be used for the most demanding broadcast and display applications. Mac and PC computers, iPhone 4 and iPad can all be used as sources with BrightEye Mitto. All Mitto units accept VGA, DVI and HDMI input signals from PC and Mac computers.

    A superior quality scan converter, BrightEye Mitto has the advantage of proprietary scaling technology and exclusive multi-tap filtering. The region selected for output determines if Mitto acts as an upconverter or downconverter. Even a small part of the computer screen, such as a YouTube video, will be upconverted to full HD. The filters automatically adjust in accordance with the conversion being performed.

    Bringing progressive images from the desktop into the interlaced world of video used to be a compromise between sharp details versus interfield flicker. Mitto's advanced filtering satisfies both of these seemingly contradictory requirements. The result is that the output looks as good, or better, than the original.

    Power supply is included.
