Vigilance completes integration of cutting edge HVEC encoding technology.
Vigilance has succesfully finished the integration of new High Efficiency Video Coding (HVEC) technology for on multiple ISR platforms. HVEC or H.265 encoding allows for up to 50% bandwidth reduction compared to traditional H.264 compression. With the completion of the program the end-user is saving valuable SATCOM bandwidth without loss of video quality. At the same time the required storage capacity for incoming FMV streams is dramatically reduced. While the transformation to H.265 is completed, the ISR platforms are still able to send FMV to legacy H.264 systems.
