Neya Systems LLC, an industry leader in unmanned systems, computer vision, and autonomy, is pleased to introduce two new unmanned systems standards-compliant H.264 video compression hardware products, UxStreamerTM and UxStreamerTM Mini.
UxStreamer is a standards-compliant video streaming solution for unmanned air, ground, surface, and subsurface vehicles. It is a combination of COTS and custom-developed technology, with SAE AS-4-compliant video control interfaces. UxStreamer speeds deployment of new unmanned capabilities by allowing systems engineers to integrate a wide variety of digital and analog EOIR video sensors to their platforms, including NTSC, USB, Firewire, CameraLink, DVI, and Gigabit Ethernet video sources at up to 1080p HD resolution at 30 Hz. UxStreamer performs real-time conversion of the video sources to an H.264 video stream with less than 100ms of to-network latency. This converted video is then provided over an RTP/RTSP communications link, with optional Joint Architecture for Unmanned Systems (JAUS) channel interfaces that support the Advanced Explosive Ordnance Disposal Robotic Systems (AEODRS) Video Capability Module specification or the Robotics Systems-Joint Project Office (RS-JPO) Interoperability Profile.
UxStreamer Mini is a smaller version of UxStreamer that is focused on applications that are more size, weight, and power (SwAP) or price sensitive. UxStreamer Mini supports up to four analog NTSC video inputs, with onboard quad multiplexer capabilities allowing improved situational awareness by providing simultaneous views of the four video inputs. UxStreamer Mini’s small dimensions and lightweight design make it an open, modular video/image acquisition, transmission, and distribution system that is suitable for a wide range of unmanned platforms.
“We are pleased to announce our first two commercial hardware products, UxStreamer and UxStreamer Mini, which represent state-of-the-art, standards-compliant real-time H.264 video streaming solutions,” said Neya Systems president Dr. Parag Batavia. “The release of these two standards-compliant hardware platforms is consistent with our company’s long-term commitment to supporting open unmanned systems architectures and business models. We anticipate strong interest in these products from the unmanned systems community.”
