Model 6021R H.264 / MPEG-2 Video / Audio Encoder, Rugged

Delta Digital Video’s Model 6021R is an airborne encoder that compresses video and audio signals, multiplexing them with metadata and other system information for transmission to a remote decoder unit. The 6021R uses the H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10) or MPEG-2 (MP@ML) video compression algorithms to provide high-quality video in airborne applications. The H.264 standard is the latest compression algorithm and is designed to facilitate the transmission of full resolution, full frame rate, and motion imagery in less bandwidth than its predecessors (Wavelet/MJPEG/MPEG- 2). MPEG-2 is a proven algorithm used on many airborne platforms.

The 6021R is easily integrated into most airborne telemetry systems. The standards-compliant transport stream is output on a synchronous serial interface (RS-422) or ethernet port (10/100 Base-T) for direct connection to the data link or recorder. The transport stream can be applied to one of Delta’s companion decoders or played through a compliant software decoder.

Control of video, audio, and system parameters permit the user to optimize video performance for any given bandwidth. Control is provided through a Windows application via an RS-232 port or the embedded Web server.
