The IVDO Multi E+ is an airborne video encoder specifically designed for aerial surveillance and reconnaissance applications. Tested to conform to Military Standards for airborne use, the iVDO Multi E+ handles:

  • Four individually configurable MPEG-2 or high or standard definition H.264 channels
  • Four stereo audio channels
  • The conversion of sensor telemetry into KLV encoded metadata

The use of time-stamping ensures that the video, and KLV metadata are in sync.

The iVDO Multi E+ has been tested to conform to military standards for airborne use and is compliant with Motion Imagery Standard Profile (MISP 5.1).
