RGB Spectrum Showcases Solutions for Ground Control Stations and Operator Training at AUVSI Unmanned Systems 2013

Alameda, Calif.  August 8, 2013 – RGB Spectrum will present attendees of the AUVSI Unmanned Systems 2013 Show (Booth #3440) with live demonstrations of its range of solutions for ground control stations and operator training, including intelligent display, recording, streaming and signal transmission products. The exhibit will showcase RGB Spectrum’s unique codecs, multiviewers and switchers.

“We look forward to presenting our range of video display, recording and transmission solutions to attendees at AUVSI 2013,” said Jed Deame, vice president of marketing at RGB Spectrum. “RGB Spectrum has a robust lineup of video processing, display and decision support systems that combine impressive performance and reliability to deliver the best in video solutions for ground control stations and operator training systems.”

RGB Spectrum’s DSx™ and DGy™ codecs provide an unmatched combination of superior image quality, high performance, and feature-packed capabilities, including exclusive features not found with any other codecs in the industry.

The DGy series of JPEG2000 codecs record and stream at up to 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution. These codecs use JPEG2000 compression to achieve visually lossless results, setting a new standard for image quality. DGy codecs support the recording and streaming of computer, radar, sonar, FLIR, X-Ray, and HD signals at up to 30 frames per second. Models are available with a built-in removable hard disk for storage and an optional fixed drive. All models support external network attached storage devices, such as RAIDs, allowing the codecs to offer virtually unlimited capacity.

DGy codecs offer an unparalleled feature set, including external time code synchronization (IRIG-B or Network Time Server), event marking, random access, variable speed playback, frame-by-frame jog/shuttle, and exclusive recording failsafe feature which automatically protects recordings in a catastrophic system failure.  Multiple units can be interconnected to support the simultaneous, synchronized recording of multiple channels. An exclusive feature of the DGy codes is the option to record and replay concurrently, which allows operators to review imagery while recording is still in progess.

The DSx 300 codec encodes, records, streams, and replays signals at up to 1920 x 1200 and 1600 x 1200 resolution. Its advanced H.264 high profile compression delivers superior image quality when compared to the main and baseline profiles used in most other codecs. The DSx 300 codec offers the ability to record signal streams to locally connected USB storage devices and to external network storage devices such as RAIDs. The codec also supports concurrent streaming and recording. IP streams can be decoded with commercial off-the-shelf PC software or, where lower latency is required, DSx codecs.

Leading-edge features include on-screen display (OSD), external time code synchronization, event marking, variable speed playback, random access, confidence monitoring, and a unique recording failsafe feature which automatically protects recordings in case of catastrophic system failure.

The addition of multiviewers and switchers expand the functionality of codec systems. RGB Spectrum offers a full-range of application-specific display processors, such as the real-time SuperView 4K Multiviewer, designed specifically for “Ultra HD” monitors. Operators can manipulate native 4K images, a combination of 4K and high-definition (1920×1080) windows, or up to eight HD graphic or video windows (scaled or unscaled) and display them with stunning clarity on a single Ultra HD device.

Linx Prime Matrix Switchers and Opto Enterprise Matrix Switchers enable the secure transmission of information without signal degradation and provide superb tools for A/D conversion, signal routing and control, and HDCP compliance.

RGB Spectrum’s codecs, multiviewers and switchers will be on display at Booth # 3440 at the AUVSI show, August 12–15, 2013, at the Walter E. Washington Center in Washington, DC. For more information about RGB Spectrum’s full line of products, visit us online at http://www.rgb.com.
