StreamPix and TroublePix supports all Great River technology frame grabbers and graphic generator for MIL and aeronautical video and data recording. Video and data signal can be capture and playback with either GRAV64 or Matrix series of frame grabber.
The ARINC 818 video interface and protocol standard was developed for high-bandwidth, low-latency, uncompressed digital video transmission. The standard has been advanced by ARINC and the aerospace community to meet the stringent needs of high-performance digital video. ARINC 818 video systems include infrared and other wavelength sensors, optical cameras, radar, flight recorders, map/chart systems, synthetic vision, image fusion systems, heads-up displays, heads-down multifunction displays, and video concentrators. These video systems are used for taxi and take-off assist, cargo loading, navigation, target tracking, collision avoidance and other critical functions.
HOTlink is used in Infrared camera applications and point to point data communications. The GRT GRAV64 HOTLink II Video card (HL2V) is based on the Cypress HOTLink II Interface that is Fibre Channel compatible at the FC-0 and FC-1 layers. The card supports a wide range of video formats with data rates from 160 Mbps to 1.5 Gbps. Two 16 Mbyte image stores allow the card to have uninterrupted throughput from HOTLink II port to PCI or from HOTLink II to SXGA. The card is available with a 50 or 75 Ohm BNC connector, SMA , FCN type Twinax connector, or a Fiber Optic transceiver.
To Playback captured Video using GRT hardware use our GRT Playout Reader. The GRT Playout reader is used for outputing a video with one of the supported GRT boards (H2LV, FCAV or Matrix).
The video source is a sequence file that was previously recorded with StreamPix/Troublepix.
The sequence parameters (image size and format) must match the available video out modes of the selected GRT board.
Select the board that is used for outputing the video and then select the sequence file. When you press the play button, the board starts outputing the video.
