BrightEye Mac and PC Software

Using BrightEye control software, you can easily time BrightEye Mitto into a video production switcher or router. From your desktop, you have complete and intuitive control of video format, video levels, output timing, mixing audio channels, and audio delay.

Pristine, Detailed Video Output

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 up converter or downconverter. 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 displays as a colored box around your selection, showing the portion of the video that will be output from BrightEye Mitto.

Use Your Mouse To Select What is Output to Video

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 relative to your selection gives you the ability to choose exactly which portion of the video you want to scan convert for output. 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 timing with respect to video for perfect lip sync, which is crucial when using Skype video in a production environment.
