Ensemble Designs BE56 overview

  • 1Description

The Ensemble Designs BrightEye 56 is an HD/SD/analog test signal and sync pulse generator designed to provide accurate and versatile synchronization for audio and video engineers in remote trucks, post-production facilities, and mobile video production setups. It offers the ability to be a master or slave generator and is genlockable.

A single BNC reference input accepts composite video (PAL or NTSC), tri-level sync, or 10 MHz signal. Seven BNC jacks provide dedicated composite, tri-level sync, SDI, and AES outputs, plus there are three programmable BNC outputs. Also, a two-channel analog output is available on a terminal block connection.

The BrightEye 56 boasts over 30 HD and SD test signals and patterns, a timecode generator, and a sync pulse generator. Many of its settings are accessible via front-panel controls, and full access to all configurable options can be unlocked via BrightEye software on a USB-connected computer.
