BrightEye 26 converts analog
composite video to SDI, with simultaneous conversion
of four channels of audio and embedding. It is similar
to the BrightEye 25, with the addition of an optical
output. A TBC/Frame Sync is a standard feature and allows
this BrightEye to work with any sort of video input.
Great for broadcast and desktop applications, BrightEye
26 can be used with sources such as VTRs and incoming
The analog input is converted at 12 bits of resolution
and digitally decoded to 10 bit YCrCb components (601).
The signal is then time base corrected and frame synchronized
to the reference input. The audio is converted to digital
and then it passes through the built-in four channel
mixer with shuffle and level control. The video and
audio signals join up in an embedder which can be targeted
to any of the four groups.
Basic controls are accessed on the front panel. BrightEye
Mac or PC software provide access to video proc functions
and the built-in audio mixer. The vertical interval
can be passed or blanked. VU indication is provided
on the front panel and through BrightEye Mac or PC.
