Designed to DO-160 standards, the Applied Video Imaging (Booth No. 3406) DVI/HDMI to 3G-SDI converter unit is a rugged box plumbed to make it quick and simple for crew to bring mission-critical portable devices onboard helicopters for airborne surveillance and SAR missions. The converter is designed for use in airborne, ground and marine law-enforcement and defense surveillance applications. Based on industry standards, it can be used with any SDI display or system.
“Our converter provides a cost-effective, lightweight means for distributing DVI and HDMI video on our customers’ platforms,” said Bruce Carriker, president of the company, introducing it in the Heli-Expo exhibit hall. The single-channel unit weighs 1.2 pounds, and rests in a 5.5- by 4.3- by 1.5-inch package, and it can accept nine to 36 volts of DC power.
