Delta Announces New 2-Channel HD/SD Video Encoder

Horsham, PA – Delta Digital Video, a division of Delta Information Systems, Inc., is pleased to introduce its newest airborne video encoder, the Model 6820R, 2-Channel HD/SD Video Encoder. The 6820R is Delta’s answer to the ISR community’s need for additional video channels without increasing size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C). The 6820R is a dropin replacement for Delta’s highly successful Model 6800R, singlechannel encoder, which is deployed, and has been providing our forces high-quality, HD, Full Motion Video (FMV) since 2008.

The 6820R continues Delta’s commitment to improving FMV delivery by adding a second channel in the same mechanical configuration as its predecessor, at the same power and price. Our new encoder maintains all of the MISB compatible metadata and transport stream multiplexing features of our JITC certified products, while adding support for composite standard definition video, resolutions up to 1080p60, and a fully configurable, lower bit rate, secondary stream for each channel.

“We are very excited about our new HD architecture and especially the 6820R,” said George Nelson, VP/GM Delta Digital Video. “The success of HD video in-theater has increased the demand for the number of high quality video feeds directly from air assets and the 6820R will fill that need.” Delta will be demonstrating the 6820R at this year’s AUVSI conference in Washington, DC,  May 5-7. You can find Delta in Booth #2339. We look forward to seeing you there!
