BrightEye Mac and PC Software

Adjusting video levels, output timing, audio delay, and mixing audio channels is so easy with BrightEye control software. From your desktop you have complete and intuitive control of timing, video format, and video level adjustments. You can easily time BrightEye Mitto into a video production switcher or router.

Exclusive Filtering and Scaling Technology

A superior quality scan converter, BrightEye Mitto has the advantage of proprietary scaling technology and exclusive multi-tap filtering. Even a small part of the computer screen, such as a YouTube video, will be upconverted to full screen HD. 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. The result is that the output looks as good, or better, than the original and passes the most stringent testing.

Easy To Use

BrightEye PC/Mac software runs overtop of any video, website or software. The Selection Tool shows up as a colored box around your selection and shows the portion of the video that will be output from BrightEye Mitto.

Use Your Mouse To Select What Will Be Output to Video

BrightEye PC and BrightEye Mac software let you simply use your mouse to click and drag over the specific portion of computer video that you want to output. The perspective of seeing the whole screen gives you the ability to choose exactly which portion of the video you want to output. It’s easy to output the entire screen or just a selected portion.

Resize the selection window by clicking and dragging with your mouse. Mitto’s video output automatically goes to pillarbox or letterbox as needed. Mitto automatically maintains perfect aspect ratio.

Digital and Analog Video and Audio

The intuitive front panel interface makes it easy to choose the desired video output format. The genlock reference input allows the video outputs to be timed to house.

The audio input accepts analog audio. AES is optional. Audio is embedded into the SDI outputs which is required for many high end applications. Audio delay controls let you adjust the audio with respect to video for perfect lip sync, which is crucial when using Skype video in a production environment.
