On Sight, London's market-leading digital hire company, has ordered three Eyeheight legalisers for inclusion with Avid online edit workstations.
Each LegalEyes is housed in a 1U Eyeheight Mini-Box fitted with horizontal spacers to extend its chassis size from half to full rack width. On Sight has incorporated the units in 6U flight cases with workstation support equipment.
LegalEyes lets producers and editors prevent video signal levels from exceeding internationally agreed upon standards for RGB color space and luminance. Designed to match EBU specification R103-2000, it employs full 10-bit signal processing of the 270 mbps SDI input signal.
On Sight chose a version of LegalEyes that incorporates front-panel pushbutton selection of 100 percent (1 volt peak-to-peak), 103 percent and 105 percent maximum signal level and a bypass setting.
Two independent legalized SDI outputs are provided. LegalEyes also allows EDH signal re-insertion.
