Pleora RuggedCONNECT Smart Video Switcher

Highlights:

The RuggedCONNECT Smart Video Switcher is a highly integrated standalone device that acquires, processes, and displays real-time video sensor data for vehicle-based local situational awareness (LSA) and driver vision enhancer (DVE) applications.

The RuggedCONNECT Smart Video Switcher includes eight analog composite inputs supporting RS-170/NTSC/PAL or 2 HD-SDI video inputs and two independent HD-SDI single link displays. Support for GigE Vision and Def Stan 00-082 streaming protocols on dual 1 Gbps Ethernet channels make it the perfect solution to implement networked, open standard, interoperable video management systems as demanded by GVA, NGVA, and VICTORY standards.

Scalable, Distributed Video:

The RuggedCONNECT leverages Pleora’s distributed video architecture to allow multiple units to be networked together to create larger-scale video switching systems with different video input/output combinations.

Powerful Processing:

Combining the high-performance networking capabilities of RuggedCONNECT with the power of an NVIDIA GPU, designers can easily add AI image processing and graphics overlay decision-support capabilities to reduce the cognitive burden and increase mission effectiveness.

The computing power of the NVIDIA GPU supports applications such as AI/Machine Learning, image fusion, 360-degree stitching, map/ terrain overlay, and image enhancement to more demanding convolutional-neural network-based threat detection and classification.

Customization Options:

The highly configurable RuggedCONNECT architecture enables fast development of products to address various sensor and display interfaces, such as HD-SDI, VGA, or custom sensor/display requirements. This same architecture enables Pleora to add more interfaces, support a different mix of interfaces, additional network interfaces, and general communications ports.
