Delta’s Airborne High Definition Video Encoder Receives JITC Certification

February 6, 2013

Horsham, PA – Delta Digital Video, a business unit of Delta Information Systems, Inc. is pleased to announce that their Model 6800R Airborne High Definition Video Encoder has successfully passed the Department of Defense Joint Interoperability Test Center (JITC) certification test process for Motion Imagery Standards Profile (MISP) compliance. The MISP was developed by the DoD Motion Imagery Standards Board in order to improve the interoperability of motion video systems across the national and coalition Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) community.

“We are very proud of this certification, which underscores Delta’s commitment to both standards- compliant solutions and maintaining a close working relationship with the DoD ISR community” said Gary Thom, President of Delta Information Systems. “This is our second product certified under the JITC MISP compliance program which highlights Delta’s leadership position in the military video technology area and distinguishes us from other commercial equipment suppliers.”

The Model 6800R is one in a series of Rugged Airborne Video Encoders which include both Standard Definition and High Definition products. This unit accepts video and frame synchronous metadata over a SMPTE 292M interface. All products in the series are based on the same code set which ensures that all Delta products comply with the MISP requirements. Key to the MISP certification is the ability of the video encoders to very accurately timestamp and associate metadata with each video frame. This significantly increases the positional accuracy of motion imagery.

In addition to JITC compliance, Delta’s products comply with DO-160/Mil-STD-810/MIL-STD-461 environmental and EMI standards for airborne operation. This includes the Model 6021R Airborne Video Encoder which compresses standard definition (SD) video and is in use on Army, Navy, and Air Force manned and unmanned platforms.
