The BrightEye 10 Optical-SDI to Analog-SDI Converter from Ensemble Designs is a device that converts either SDI (electrical) or fiber optic inputs to Beta or SMPTE component, RGB, and composite (with simultaneous Y/C) outputs. Processing, encoding, and conversion are performed digitally at 12-bit resolution with 8X oversampling.
Front-panel controls allow you to select the input source and format, as well as adjust video gain. Video levels can also be adjusted through the BrightEye software package that is included with the unit and compatible with both Windows and Mac operating systems.
Please note that a power supply is not included with the unit and must be purchased separately.
Optical-SDI to Analog-SDI Conversion
Use this device to convert either SDI (electrical) or fiber optic inputs to Beta and SMPTE component, RGB, and composite (with simultaneous Y/C) outputs.
The unit can be controlled through the push buttons on the converter's faceplate or through the proprietary software package included with the unit.
The converter will work on both Windows and Mac operating systems.
The unit offers 12-bit resolution.
