Defense and Aerospace ISR applications require solutions in area of IP video encoders and decoders that utilize the latest in off-the-shelf video and data communications technology modified to fit specific environmental and mission needs. Cornet’s IP video encoders decoders  and recorders offer high fidelity processing of video, voice and data.

For over 20 years Cornet Technology has specialized in customizing modern video, voice, and data technology to fit the precise needs of customers such as the U.S. Navy, Air Force, Marines, Army, NASA, and the FAA. Our customizable commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions encompass IP-based, standard and high-definition, low-latency, rugged/non-rugged video encoders, decoders, and network video recorders, and playback products.

Cornet Technology’s iVDO family of single- and multi-channel video Encoders/Decoders supports the rigors of air, sea, and ground applications with products targeted at military and commercial Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance applications. These future-focused video encoders and decoders employ the latest IP, compression, and resolutions while keeping a finger in the past to support analog applications and their migration to fast transport technologies. The company’s iVDO family of video encoders and decoders are available in single and multi-channel, rugged and non-rugged versions.

Single Channel Video Encoders and Decoders

CTI’s single-channel video products provide unique features and benefits to a market less-sensitive to competitive pricing pressure. CTI’s video solutions are currently deployed and in use for air (manned and unmanned aircraft), sea (ships), and ground surveillance as well as ground control stations.

Video Encoders / Decoders

Cornet Technology, Inc. offers iVDO family of  MPEG-4, MPEG-2,  H.264 video encoders and decoders.

The range offers a choice from standard definitionhigh definition, and AAC audio encoding. Cornet offers rugged versions for airborne and seaborne applications. The video encoders decoders come in compact form sizes optimized for SWaP for custom use. All encoders decoders support frame, field, and adaptive coding types.

The encoders offer IP streams as output which can be further multicast or unicast depending on application. The equipment an accept metadata which can be transported with an independent program identifier in the transport stream.

Our single and multi channel video encoders excel in the surveillance arena where high definition megapixel SDI/HD SDI/DVI/composite cameras require encoding to multiple formats for transporting video over IP or MPLS networks. Many encoders support extended operating temperature range.

Management of  encoders and decoders is easy through a web browser, SNMP or command line interfaces for advanced programmers.
