FEATURED IN PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENTS
RIO DE JANEIRO, APRIL 11, 2012 — Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT), a Business Unit within the Vitec Group’s Videocom Division, and a leader in advanced digital microwave systems for MAG (Military, Aerospace & Government) markets, showcases its range of state-of-the-art digital microwave components for portable and fixed link applications at LAAD Security 2012, an international exhibition of technology, equipment and services manufacturers, and suppliers for law enforcement, homeland security, public security, police and security managers (Booth H59).
Ultra-Compact and Compact Transmitters and Receivers
IMT is highlighting its ultra-compact VSTx COFDM Transmitter at this year’s show. VSTx is an ultra-small, low-power, standard definition (SD) transmitter ideally suited for UAV/UGV, robotic, concealed body-worn video wires and other surveillance applications. The VSTx features superb H.264 SD encoding and operates in the standard 2k DVB-T COFDM mode. Only two cubic inches in size and weighing in at 26.3 grams, the VSTx is available with two connector options. The first model features a standard connector for simple interfacing in the field. The VSTx can easily be used in fielded small robotic applications as well as body-worn operations. The second model features a small flex ribbon interface cable that is ideal for direct integration in OEM systems design. The VSTx transmitter can be operated in 1.25- or 2.5-MHz narrow-bandwidth COFDM (NBCOFDM) modes with an RF output up to 100mW. This mode uses the RF spectrum more efficiently, permitting more transmitters to be used simultaneously or allowing their usage range to be extended. Narrow bandwidth also delivers extended usable range, with no additional power output required.
Also featured will be IMT’s state-of-the-art STx COFDM Transmitter. The STx delivers HD/SD output at 250mW in 2k DVB-T COFDM mode. It occupies less than five cubic inches, making it ideal for any covert or body-worn operations. It supports video/audio/data transmission with selectable modulation bandwidths of 6, 7 and 8MHz. The STx can output 250mW and may be reduced to low-power 20mW with the simple press of a button. If using a single video stream, users can simply switch the STx into NBCOFDM (1.25 MHz/2.5 MHz) and double the range without increasing RF power. A video test pattern generator that is designed into the STx can be controlled externally, through the preset switch or programmed to be automatically enabled when the video input is lost. The STx has an ASI input and output providing the ability to stack or multiplex multiple units. Because it is capable of AES encryption, the STx is ideal for public security monitoring, covert surveillance and other secure transmission applications. It also has a clean and user-friendly local control panel. Its user interface
allows quick control of preset selection, RF power, standby modes and covert display mode.
IMT’s SRx HD/SD Dual Input Diversity COFDM Receiver is a ruggedized dual-diversity COFDM receiver that combines exceptional RF performance and ease of operation, built in a durable, weather resistant package. It features superb H.264 SD and HD decoding and supports a broad array of video output signals, including HD, ASI, HD-SDI and SD-SDI (SDI is auto switched depending on the signal received). The SRx also has a composite video output, which is down-converted to SD when receiving HD signals. The SRx receiver uses standardized cables and requires no special adapters. It also features an Ethernet port for streaming video over a LAN to remote software or hardware decoders. This allows many remote viewers to monitor the same video simultaneously, increasing situational awareness.
IMT’s VSRx Dual Diversity COFDM SD Receivers offer exceptional RF performance combined with high ease of operation. The VSRx features superb H.264 SD decoding. These features are combined in a durable package delivering unequaled value in a high-quality COFDM receiver. The VSRx features AES decryption capabilities, making it ideal for public security monitoring, covert surveillance and other secure transmission applications. Supporting a broad array of video output signals, including ASI and SD-SDI, the VSRx unit also has a composite video output.
