Product description

The BrightEye 91-A HD Up-Converter with Analog Audio from Ensemble Designs is an up-converter that features analog composite and SD-SDI inputs. Feed your analog camera signals to this unit and up-convert its video to high-definition. Moreover, the HD output can be fed into other systems such as switchers or projectors, among other possible uses. This economical solution allows you to upgrade to HD without replacing your existing infrastructure or equipment.

An external reference input allows for genlock to a house reference, and the unit faithfully passes all vertical interval data and closed captioning information. The HDMI connector on the rear of the chassis provides a monitoring interface with LCD displays.

This unit also handles up to (16) channels of embedded audio and up to (8) channels of analog audio streams. Embedded audio is safely routed around video processing. Two of the four embedded audio groups are available for mixing. You can monitor any audio channel by plugging a headset into the 3.5mm jack on the unit's front panel.

The front-panel interface offers control of input selection, gain control, and test patterns, among other parameters. The unit can also be controlled through the BrightEye software package that is included with the unit and compatible with both Windows and Mac platforms. LEDs on the front panel provide a visual indicator of channel status. Note: Please note that a power supply is not included with the unit and must be purchased separately.
