Eyeheight designs and manufactures broadcast-quality SDI/HD-SDI equipment for programme-origination, quality-assurance, post-production, playout and associated areas. This includes legalisers, logo generators, safe-area generators, keyers, colour correctors and aspect ratio converters. The company was founded in 1992 by two BBC-trained engineers, Steve Crocker and Martin Moore, who were then working as chief engineers in the post-production industry.
From its inception, Eyeheight has focused on the digital broadcast and post-production market. An early success was a serialiser/de-serialiser making parallel-digital equipment compatible with the newly developed SDI transport. This was soon joined by the company’s first modular products. The Unibox range could support two units in a single-rack-unit chassis. It included an RGB legaliser, aspect ratio converter, logo inserter and safe-area generator.
In 1999 development began of a second generation of modular products: geNETics. These expanded the capacity to six cards per rack unit and added a versatile control system enabling multiple control panels and products to exist on a single network. The geNETics range has since grown to over 50 products, all fully compatible with each other and operated via an intuitive menu-based control system.
Eyeheight has the experience and resources necessary to respond quickly to market demand in the rapidly evolving world of television production, post-production and transmission. Whether your requirement is large or small, specialised or generic, Eyeheight turns ideas into reliable and efficient products.
