A growing challenge for system integrators is how to get the most effective use out of the proliferating number of cameras and displays being deployed without adding weight and taking up space in an already constrained environment. Device interoperability, harsh environmental conditions, and rigorous qualification testing add to the challenge. While the obstacles can be daunting, choosing the right solution can reduce risk, time to market, and program cost.
Displays with ever increasing inputs, digital and analog switching, and recording equipment that can handle all of today’s image formats are absolutely necessary components of a modern Video Management System (VMS). High quality format conversion that offers an image in the correct format required by a system, with minimal impact on the image quality, is also essential. In addition, high definition video recording is important for training, debrief or evidential purposes.
With a portfolio of building blocks that have been developed leveraging decades on experience in rugged video system design and development, Curtiss-Wright’s video management products help you carry more, go further, and stay in the mission longer while reducing integration headaches between legacy and new video equipment. The use of off-the-shelf systems that have been pre-qualified to military ruggedization standards, as well as working with a proven, trusted leader that can provide the necessary expertise to ensure system interoperability, significantly reduces time to market, risk and program cost.
