Modern airborne, naval and ground vehicle platforms host disparate video sources including mission computers, digital maps and a number of external and internal sensors. These sources often need to be combined and presented in several different layouts on the operator’s screen. This white paper discusses how modern, powerful and flexible video processing technology addresses the need for combining video and graphics using video scaling and windowing solutions in a rugged environment.

Video sources on a surveillance or combat platform may include computer-generated graphics, for example from a mission or digital map computer, as well as sensor inputs from high definition or standard definition cameras or turrets. Crew members will typically require access to several or all of these video sources. In earlier installations, each video source would often have been presented on a dedicated display. However, this is clearly not a scalable solution, especially given the limitations of space and weight imposed by smaller platforms and the cost of installing and maintaining multiple displays. The solution is to combine multiple video inputs into a single video stream that can then be displayed on a single monitor.
