VidOlink Wireless Video ReceiverVidOvation, a manufacturer of video, audio and data communications systems, has announced the release of the Mini Video Assist, a handheld wireless video receiver for the unmanned vehicle market.

The Mini Video Assist receiver pairs with VidOvation’s VidOlink Ranger, a CODFM transmission link which transmits a H.264 or MPEG-2 signal to the receiver, where the signal is seamlessly decoded to a bright, daylight-viewable LCD 16:9 touch screen display. The VidOlink Mini Video Assist has a variety of features including IP streaming capabilities, 32 user configurable presets, up to 64GB for recording and an optional HDMI output for large screen.

Jim Jachetta, CTO of VidOvation, states, “Our core audience will always be those who are unwilling to compromise quality of video performance. A major catalyst in the creation of this unit was the need to overcome range limitations and dropouts. The VidOlink Mini Video Assist uses reliable COFDM technology for robust HD video transmission through obstacles or up to one mile with line of sight.”
