Download Datasheet

Use this sturdy, portable case with BrightEyes in the field. This rugged case makes it convenient to have upconverters, sync pulse generators, fiber transmitters and more wherever you need them.

BrightPak is modular and that means all BrightEyes, from the BrightEye 90-F HD Up/Down/Cross Converter with Fiber to the BrightEye 55 Sync Pulse Generator, can be housed in BrightPak for easy transport and use. You can optimize BrightPak for your specific application.

BrightPak Integration

BrightPak Basic in Kit Form is intended for end-users, dealers, distributors, and system integrators who wish to configure a BrightPak for a specific use. By selecting the appropriate BrightEye converters, industry standard connectors, and providing internal cabling, a BrightPak can be created that has the exact features and functions needed for a specific application. BrightPak Basic in Kit Form is a starting point for that process - providing the ruggedized field case, mounting for BrightEye converters and connectors, and power system needed. It is a framework for BrightPak integration.

Field News Acquisition Appliction

In this example two BrightPaks are used for outdoor, field news acquisition. One BrightPak is populated with a BrightEye 90-FA Up/Down/Cross Converter and is processing an HD or SD camera feed. The BrightEye 90-FA upconverts or cross converts the signal as needed to the desired HD format. For example, if the desired output is 720p, any input delivered to the BrightEye 90-FA (SD or HD) would be converted to 720p. Audio levels and video levels can
be adjusted.

The BrightEye 90-FA's outbound fiber feed goes to a second BrightPak in another location. This second BrightPak is populated with a BrightEye 47 Optical to Electrical Converter and BrightEye 24 D to A Converter. The incoming optical feed comes into the BrightEye 47 and is converted to electrical (HD or SD on standard coax) for signal monitoring and distribution. This electrical signal feeds the BrightEye 24, where the signal is demuxed into SDI, composite and analog audio for monitoring purposes.
