Canadian DND orders VITEC encoders

19th January 2018 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


VITEC will supply over 1,000 MGW Diamond TOUGH encoders to the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) under a contract announced on 16 January.

The Canadian DND is procuring VITEC’s multi-channel, low-power encoding solution for its Light Armoured Vehicle (LAV) project. The solution will be installed on each LAV to encode video for situational awareness, patrolling information and intelligence gathering missions.

VITEC’s military-grade encoder features a rugged enclosure specifically designed for the use in ground vehicles or manned or unmanned airborne platforms operating in extreme conditions.

The encoder provides IP video delivery from multiple analogue and digital sources within the vehicle, or externally over RF or satellite links to support intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions.

Richard Bernard, product manager, VITEC, said: ‘Winning this DND contract demonstrates VITEC’s position as a leading provider of IP video streaming technologies and its successful strategy in designing and delivering high-quality, low-bandwidth tactical video solutions that meet the highly stringent specifications of surveillance and military markets.

‘With its requirement for a rugged, reliable, and versatile encoder, the LAV project is a perfect match for our MGW Diamond TOUGH Encoder as it provides every capability for processing and distributing ISR or situational awareness video generated by military vehicles.’
