Eyeheight At BVE2009

Four additions to the Eyeheight range of HD, SD and multi-definition systems will be introduced to the UK broadcast and post-production market on Stand I-46 at BVE2009, Earls Court 2, London, February 17-19.
A globally-active innovator in broadcast-quality video and audio engineering, Eyeheight designs and manufactures a wide range of SDI/HD-SDI equipment for use in programme-origination, quality assurance, post-production, master-control and associated areas.
Eyeheight products centre on a modular platform with Ethernet control and monitoring for easy connection to other devices and to external automation.
Having its worldwide launch at BVE2009 is the UD-2 broadcast up/down converter. Making its first-ever exhibition appearance, Eyeheight's UD-2 is a high quality up/down converter with three-field temporal processing and 3:2-pulldown frame-rate conversion.
Like all Eyeheight mulitdefinition products, the UD-2 is compatible with the 18 video standards currently in use acrss 525/625 SD as 720p, 1080p and 1080i HD. Advanced video noise reduction features allow overall noise and artefacts associated with DCT compression to be minimised.
Eyeheight's LE-2MD multidefinition legaliser will be launched at the UK event. Shown in prototype at IBC2008 and now in production, the LE-2MD is the smallest and most powerful legaliser in the Eyeheight range. It is compatible with all commonly-used signal standards from 525 and 625-line SD up to 720p and 1080i HD.
Structured as two internal independent legalisers in series, the LE-2MD can be configured to operate in composite and RGB domains simultaneously, including conformity to the 75 per cent chroma settings commonly used in the USA, Japan and Australia.
The NB-9 nanoBox softPanel chassis will also receive its UK launch at BVE2009. Optimised for desktop use in control-rooms, edit suites and graphic studios as well as on location, Eyeheight's NB-9 nanoBox softPanel chassis is a cost-efficient and compact free-standing housing which will accommodate any of Eyeheight's range of single-height cards. These include legalisers, safe-area-generators and SDI-embedded audio shufflers. Control of nanoBox is via Eyeheight's softPanel software which can run in a Java 1.5 environment on any standard PC.
Lastly, the SA-2U 4:4:4 dual-link safe-area/graticule generator will also receive its UK launch at the event. Eyeheight's SA-2U is a 4:4:4 dual-link capable graticule/safe-area and blanking generator. It is designed for SD, HD-SDI, multi-definition (single-link) and 2K dual-link post-production applications.
The SA-2U generates safe action graticules, safe title and centre markers (short and full screen) for all common TV and film formats. The SA-2U is capable of handling 2048 x 1080 ('2K') and 1920 x 1080 SMPTE 274M HD signals as well as 4:3 up to 16:9 SD and includes operational blanking control.
Eyeheight will be represented at BVE2009 by Martin Moore, Gilbert Viegas and Linda Underwood.
