Rugged Airborne Video to IP Encoder

The AVS is a stand alone miniature rugged Unit. The AVS receives two NTSC/RS-170 or PAL video and two audio inputs and streams out H.264, MPEG4 via 10/100BaseT Ethernet. The AVS is an easy to use video streamer designed to broadcast live video from airborne cameras.

The AVS handles the video and audio MPEG4 compression, and serving over Ethernet. Viewers do not need to install any special software to view the video stream. It will play directly from standard players such as Quick Time, VLC etc.


  • Video Input: 2 Composite or 2 S-Video Inputs.
  • Video Loopback: 2 Composite Video Loop Back.
  • Video Output: 1 Composite Video Output.
  • Audio Input: 1 Stereo or 2 mono Inputs.
  • Audio Output: 1 Stereo or 2 mono Outputs.
  • Control and Set-up via LAN
  • Supports 10/100Base-T in either half duplex or full duplex. AVS outputs the PHY layer and the output header.
