Low latency: Our high-definition, real-time video management solutions provide minimal latency and give you reliable situational awareness while on the move.

Video distribution capabilities: Our VMU is the only product on the market that can centralize an enormous amount and variety of video inputs (4K, video, legacy RS170 or anything in between) and scale, size, manipulate, and overlay content. We can stream/distribute to multiple displays with reliably low lag giving the whole crew the whole picture in real time.

Flexibility: With our modular design, we can change inputs to outputs, cameras to displays. Our flexible approach allows for customization to any configuration to support your mission objectives.

Resolution: With 4K clarity, our Video Management Unit is enabling digital sights, allowing you to get the most out of your sensors and display feeds and giving you a clearer picture of the operating environment.

Milliseconds matter.

  • Video routing: Any input to any output, including Picture-in-Picture and Quad View, combining multiple high-resolution sensors into one display.
  • Video encoding: Up to 8 HD sources can be streamed over Ethernet using either H.264, H.265, or 00-082 encoding including STANAG 4609 KLV metadata.
  • Video decoding: Up to 8 HD video streams can be ingested over Ethernet and simultaneously decoded for processing or blending with local sources.
  • Sensor fusion: The VMU supports combining input videos using pixel based alpha blending as well as chroma keying of any combination of input videos.
  • Customizable graphics overlay: All video outputs support independent, fully customizable graphics overlays.
  • Real time video processing: The VMU supports scaling, windowing, layering, positioning, and routing as well as the blending of any input or output video.
