SARASOTA, Fla., July 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT), an xG Technology business unit and the leader in advanced digital microwave systems serving the broadcast, sports, entertainment and law enforcement markets, announces that it will be showcasing the Airborne Video Downlink System ("AVDS") at the ALEA EXPO 2016, July 18-23 (Booth 501). AVDS is comprised of an integrated suite of downlink transmitters, receivers and antennas that capture real-time, reliable high-definition video from drones, helicopters and other aircraft for display at command centers, mobile units and on video management systems.
The AVDS video transmission solution, which has been deployed by law enforcement agencies, adds an additional layer of safety and security to missions being carried out on the ground. It can play a key role in surveillance, assessment and deployment operations. When xG's xMax mobile broadband system is deployed in conjunction with AVDS, it adds a secure, resilient, bi-directional communications layer to the solution.
"IMT's Airborne Video Downlink System offers a complete downlink and distribution system for aircraft that includes a tactical receiver, a fixed receiver, state and county-wide IP diversity/aggregation systems, local hardware decode, video archive and IP video distribution systems," says Sean Drew, IMT Business Development Manager, Law Enforcement. "It is the most cost-effective solution for any law enforcement entity to have a state-of-the-art, turnkey system that can improve video workflow for its aviation units."
George Schmitt, CEO and Board Chairman of xG Technology, said, "IMT's AVDS package is essential for improving situational awareness, by giving those on the ground a clear and reliable picture of what is being captured from airborne units. When xMax is included, it becomes an even more comprehensive mobile communications platform for mission-critical needs. This is an example of the type of synergies resulting from the integration of xG and IMT's respective technologies."
AVDS components include the Mini MobilCMDR, CIRAS-x6, CRx6 and DR3 IP Diversity Receiver, as well as the new VNS Video Streaming Server. The Mini MobilCMDR is a small, ruggedized COFDM (DVB-T compliant) diversity handheld receiver/monitor. It features AES Bcrypt decryption capabilities that make it ideal for applications ranging from public security monitoring to covert surveillance.
The CIRAS-x6 (Central Integrated Radome System x6) is a ruggedized COFDM (DVB-T compliant) six-way diversity receiver integrated into a six-segment antenna pod. It is designed to automatically optimize the receive signal at all times, and virtually eliminate all human intervention. The CRx6 is a ruggedized six-way diversity receiver designed to withstand any weather conditions. The DR3 is a third-generation diversity receiver designed for the most demanding central receive and portable applications.
The new VNS Video Streaming Server delivers video captured via aircraft to unlimited mobile devices over WiFi, cellular and xMax networks. Video can also be sent to fixed receive sites, which can then communicate back and forth with command sites for total video system integration. HD video is adaptively transcoded for the target device and network conditions ensuring unprecedented reliability, and does not require any special proprietary software viewer.
