The VPDU (Video Processing and Distribution Unit) is used for processing and distributing video in system comprising multiple video sources which need to be processed and routed to multiple video displays. A typical example is an armoured vehicle with EO sighting systems, driver cameras and situation awareness cameras all of which need to be shared between different displays within the vehicle.
The GRIP VPDU combines a latest generation Intel CPU with a high performance GPU to drive up to 6 displays. The video input architecture is modular which allows the VPDU to be configured to support the specific format of the video sources. This includes support for PAL, NTSC, 3G/HD-SDI, YPbPr, STANAG, HDMI, RGB, VGA and GigE Vision. Up to 24 video sources are supported.
As a minimum, the VPDU is supplied with a Linux OS with all driver software installed.
A range of libraries based on the Vision4ce FrameWorkx software are available including:
Low latency video capture and display
Video detection and tracking
Video compression, streaming and recording
Vision4ce can undertake the development of a complete bespoke application for the VPDU.
