Delta Digital Video is committed to remaining at the forefront of video compression technology for the real-time delivery of high-quality full motion video and data for the most demanding requirements. These state-of-the-art digital video solutions offer value through small SWaP, easy integration, and excellent video quality at the lowest possible data rate for today’s advanced sensor systems.

H.265 Encoding for High Quality, Low Bandwidth Distribution

Utilizing the H.265 (HEVC) video compression algorithm, our encoders provide high-quality video transmission at various resolutions and a wide range of bandwidths. The H.265 compression algorithm utilizes highly bit-efficient coding to provide encoded streams at nearly half the bandwidth of its H.264 predecessor. It also provides high-quality video encoding at relatively low bit rates, for both High Definition (HD) and Standard Definition (SD). This increased efficiency allows for more channels to be transmitted over a given bandwidth, better quality video for constrained bandwidth applications, or lower bandwidth operation to extend the limits of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) operation and reduced storage size requirements. Our units are also designed with an H.264 mode for backwards compatibility.

Durable, Cost-effective Video Distribution Solutions for Encoding, Transmitting, and Decoding Diverse Video Formats

Delta Digital Video is a leading supplier of video streaming products for mission critical operations such as airborne intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) and flight test applications. In addition to our rugged video encoder products, we offer reliable solutions for video distribution networks.

Utilizing the same high-performance media processing architecture as our rugged units, Delta Digital Video’s video distribution product line provides the high quality and low latency performance required to ensure the timely delivery of full motion video for real-time decision-making and post-mission analysis. Providing for enterprise network video streaming, we offer stand-alone and rackmount products.

Network Centric Flight Test Architectures

The easier management and control of large amounts of data can be achieved with the modern Ethernet over IP and the right software from Delta Digital Video, and sister companies: Ampex Data Systems, Acroamatics Telemetry Systems, and GDP Space Systems.

  • H.264 vs H.265 Video Encoding Approaches

    This paper discusses the application of two of the latest video encoding approaches for test platforms, particularly in bandwidth-constrained and over imperfect (lossy) transmission links. High Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC or H.265) is compared with MPEG-4 Advanced Video Coding (AVC or H.264), and the behavior of both in low bandwidth and lossy transmission channels is explored, concentrating on the ability to transmit usable information over low bandwidth links using each approach. Comparison of the same video simultaneously compressed heavily for constrained links and lightly for on-board storage is used to illustrate the effects of heavy compression on video usability, as well as side-by-side comparison of the output of both video encoding algorithms as implemented in a rugged airborne package.

  • An Introduction to Video Compression

    With the growing complexity of flight test programs and the improved efficiency of compression algorithms, video is an ever increasing component of flight test data collection. This presentation offers a description of how video compression works and the trade-offs that can be made when selecting and implementing video compression components. It will also examine the effects of video compression on video quality and investigate some of the causes and resolutions of quality problems.

Delta Digital Video’s Model 6820R 2-Channel HD/SD Rugged Video Encoder in action at a recent testing.

Delta Digital Video’s Model 6820R supports up two channels of video with resolutions up to 1080p and multiplexes them with metadata and other system information for real-time video transmission and recording applications. Designed for any airborne or ground-mobile application, specifically military ISR missions, the 6820R is qualified to MIL-STD-810/461/704 and compliant with the Full-motion Video (FMV) standards developed by the U.S. Government’s Motion Imagery Standards Board (MISB) and STANAG.

Delta Digital Video Takes Part in Successful Hughes SATCOM Black Hawk Helicopter Flight Test Demo

Delta Digital Video is proud to have taken part in Hughes Network Systems’ successful in-flight demonstration of the Hughes HeloSatTM satellite communications (SATCOM). Delta’s Model 7820R 2CH HD/SD H.265 Video Encoder was integrated with the SATCOM system on a Black Hawk helicopter to enable transmission of real-time, full-motion video to a live global audience from the Black Hawk as it surveilled the Tennessee landscape on May 21st. The inputs to the encoder were high definition video (1080p) from a handheld camera and the chin-mounted sensor. The transmission rate was set to <1Mbps. Watch the YouTube video here.
