iPhone Video to HD SDI for Breaking News

Grass Valley, California, 22 March 2011 – Ensemble Designs is featuring an iPhone to HD and SD SDI video interface to the BrightEye Mitto Scan Converter, new at NAB 2011, to be shown on booth N1323. Mitto provides a solution for getting severe weather footage and breaking news from an iPhone into a news program.

The BrightEye Mitto converts iPhone or computer material to SD and HD SDI video for input to a router or production switcher. YouTube™, Skype™ video, weather radar, viewer emails and maps can be easily used for live shows.Even a small part of the screen, such as a Skype window, is converted to full screen HD. Ensemble’s proprietary upconversion and filtering processing provides broadcast quality video for use in high end applications.

“We are using the Mitto Scan converter for ingesting web content for our daily news shows,” said Efi Dilmoni, V.P. Of Engineering and Technology, at Channel 10 and News 10 in Israel. “We are extremely happy with the functionality and quality.”

The BrightEye Mitto Scan Converter connects to the VGA port on the iPhone and scales the iPhone video to HD, SD or 3 Gb/s video. BrightEye Mitto has a reference input allowing the video output to be timed to house which is critical for use in broadcast.
