Rugged Video Encoders


The Model 8600R Multi-Channel Video Encoder compresses high definition and standard definition video and audio signals, multiplexing them with metadata and other system information for real-time video transmission and recording applications. The 8600R is a modular design, providing flexibility in the number of encoding channels by installing or removing encoder modules. The unit is capable of simultaneously encoding up to 14 channels of video with resolutions up to 1920 x 1200p when fully populated. Utilizing the H.264 (MPEG-4 AVC Part 10) video compression algorithm, the encoder provides high quality video transmission at various resolutions and a wide range of bandwidths. The unit is built on an advanced multimedia architecture that extends encoding to multiple channels without increasing size and power. A “Primary/Secondary” encoding feature enables a second, lower resolution, lower bit rate copy of the video input to be independently configured and streamed simultaneously for a maximum of 28 streams.

Delta’s 8600R is not a converted “network appliance”. The unit was designed from the outset for airborne, ground-mobile, and shipboard applications. The 8600R is compliant with the full motion video (FMV) standards developed by the US Government’s Motion Imagery Standards Board (MISB) and STANAG. This includes compliance with the video compression, KLV metadata, and transport stream profiles required to ensure interoperability in US and Allied processing, dissemination, and exploitation (PED) systems. Full DO-160/MIL-810 environmental, MIL-461 EMI, and MIL-704 Power qualification ensures the 8600R meets the strictest requirements.

The 8600R is easily integrated into any FMV system, providing auto-detection for digital and analog video standards. A fully configurable Ethernet interface allows for easy integration into any FMV network. Multi-format metadata interfaces are available along with serial, Telnet, or web-GUI for encoder set-up.
