Ensemble Designs has announced that the first units of the BrightEye Mitto scan converter for broadcasters have shipped to television stations worldwide.
"Broadcasters are looking for a better way to get web material to air," said Mondae Hott, director of sales. "We've been overwhelmed with phone calls from station engineers asking for demos and placing orders for Mitto."
A superior quality scan converter, BrightEye Mitto makes it easy to choose the desired video output format: 1.5 and 3Gbps HD SDI or SD SDI. Mitto possesses proprietary scaling technology and exclusive multi-tap filtering. The region selected for output determines if Mitto acts as an up-converter or down-converter. The filters automatically adjust in accordance with the conversion being performed. The included software allows users to simply use a mouse to select which part of the computer video they want to output to HD or SD video.
"This is an example of our flexibility to respond to an industry need. In eight short months from concept to shipping, we succeeded in meeting the demand for an affordable and intuitive scan converter that can go to work today," said Jeremy Wood, software designer of the BrightEye Mac and PC control system.
