IBC: Ensemble Designs Introduces BrightEye Mitto
Ensemble Designs has launched BrightEye Mitto, a new standalone unit that prepares Web video for broadcasting on-air.

“A broadcaster came to us and said they needed a superior quality scan converter, a way to take YouTube to air with the best possible quality. So we built a product for them,” said Mondae Hott, director of sales at Ensemble Designs in Grass Valley, Calif. “When we brought the unit to the customer for testing they were completely amazed at how good the HD output looked.”

Mitto’s intuitive user interface allows broadcasters to select a portion of a computer video display using just a mouse, and send it to air. The region selected for output determines if Mitto acts as an upconverter or downconverter. The filters automatically adjust in accordance with the conversion being performed.

“Bringing progressive images from the desktop into the interlaced world of video used to be a compromise between sharp details versus interfield flicker,” said David Wood, president of Ensemble Designs. “The proprietary filtering we came up with satisfies both of these seemingly contradictory requirements. The result is that the output looks as good or better than the original material, which makes it useable in the most demanding broadcast facilities.”

BrightEye Mitto offers 1.5 and 3 Gb/s HD outputs. The genlock reference input allows the output to be timed to house. Analog or digital audio inputs provide for embedded audio on the output.
