The BrightEye NXT 445K-X License Option from Ensemble Designs allows you to enjoy automatic up/down/cross format conversion and instantaneous clean switching & mixing with NXT 445 Streaming Encoder. Adding the 445K-X license option makes it easy to integrate signals from all types of equipment, regardless of the video format. Various formats of high definition and standard definition content can be converted to a common format and routed seamlessly to destinations. Standard definition sources can be up converted to high definition, as well as cross converting from one HD format to another. All you have to do is select a SMPTE standard for a particular destination, and all sources routed to that destination will be converted to that format automatically. The 445K-X license option also adds Clean and Quiet Switching to cleanly and instantly switch or dissolve your sources. With inclusion of this option, you can feed the NXT 445 with cameras and other asynchronous sources and take the output to air or to production equipment.
