New BrightPak takes Ensemble Design BrightEye gear into the field
Ensemble Designs introduced BrightPak Field Kit, a rugged mobile enclosure for field use of the company’s BrightEye video converters, sync pulse generators and fiber-optic transmitters, at NAB2008.
Designed for mobile applications where HD upconversion, fiber transmission and other terminal gear is required, BrightPak can be outfitted with a variety of video converters, audio embedders and test pattern generators, depending on the application.
An Anton/Bauer Gold Mount battery connector plate is installed on the side of the case and wired into its power system. Users can select between AC power and battery. A built-in USB hub provides for control of all terminal gear in the unit. Software is included with each converter for control of video levels, timing and other parameters.
The first field use of BrightPak was for news acquisition at the White House.
