iWave Unveils ARINC818 Digital Video Recorder (DVR)

Since its inception, the ARINC818: Avionics Digital Video Bus (ADVB) Protocol has proliferated as the mission-critical video bus in most of the new, military aircraft programs. In addition to being the bus connecting the video cameras/processors to a variety of displays (HUDs, MFDs HMDs), it has expanded into high-resolution video data recorders.

Today, we at iWave Systems have been a leading designer of proven ARINC818 Solution provider announcing the launch of ARINC818 Digital Video Recorder (DVR).

iWave’s ARINC818 DVR is powered by Xilinx ZynQ® UltraScale+™ MPSoC device is a multi-channel record/playback system that accepts any form of ARINC818 video input with different resolution & refresh rate. The received ARINC818 video stream is encoded with the assist of an on-chip H.264/5 video codec engine which is capable of performing simultaneous compression and decompression of video streams. Finally, the encoded video is stored in either SSD/HDD.
