Ensemble Designs' Scan Converter for Broadcasters Ships to TV Stations Worldwide

Grass Valley, California, 8 February 2010 – Ensemble Designs today announced the release of the award winning BrightEye Mitto™ scan converter for broadcasters. The first units shipped today to television stations in the U.S, Asia and New Zealand. The substantial order backlog will be addressed over the coming month.

“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 3 Gb/s 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 upconverter or downconverter. 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.
