Eyeheight Reports Highly Successful NAB 2008 Convention

Eyeheight has reported a highly successful NAB 2008 Convention with exceptionally good international attendance and a high level of interest in the company's range of multi-definition and 2K dual-link equipment.
Exhibiting at its established location on the upper floor of the South Hall, Eyeheight enjoyed consistently healthy traffic levels on all four days of the show.
Strong interest was shown in Eyeheight's new AR-2SD standard-definition and AR-2MD multi-definition aspect ratio converters. These enable 4:3 source content to be converted between 16:9, 15:9 and 14:9 letterbox, 4:3 full frame and 2.35 or 1.85 anamorphic formats.
A flexible zoom mode allows source video to be compressed and expanded horizontally and vertically for unusual applications.
The AR-2MD features integral HD-SDI and SD-SDI input autosensing. Standards supported comprise 625 and 525 line SD, 1080 line 23.98p/24p/25p/50i/29.97p/ 30p/59.94i/60i and 720p-23.98/24/25/29.97/30/50/59.94/60 HD.
An optional broadcast-quality up/down-converter for the AR-2MD allows any standard input resolution to be processed to any standard output without taking up additional space in chassis. The processed output can be used for monitoring or transmission.
Also introduced at NAB, the SA-2U is a 4:4:4 dual-linkable graticule/safe-area and blanking generator designed for SD, HD-SDI multi-definition (single-link) and SD, HD-SDI and 2K (dual-link) post-production.
The SA-2U generates safe action graticules, safe title and centre markers (short and full screen) for all common TV and film formats. Additional features include three safe-area cursor generators with full user control of cursor colour, transparency and type as well as specialised functions for text height and aspect ratio measurement.
Making its US exhibition debut, Eyeheight's AS-2MD 16-channel multi-definition audio shuffler simplifies the task of re-assigning embedded audio channels within an HD-SDI or SD-SDI feed. A second input allows embedded audio to be extracted from one feed and added to alternative video from another.
The AS-2MD also allows audio breakaway of any source if installed on an HD-SDI router.
Also introduced to the US market at NAB 2008, the LI-1DM is a compact multi-definition logo inserter with dual independent logo generators and dual independent keyers. The LI-1DM allows HD or SD logos to be uploaded to flash memory, monitored and controlled via Ethernet.
Each channel can accommodate logos in any common format including 1080i, 1080p25, 1080p30, 720p 625 and 525.
