RVG-FC1 Video Format Converter

Video management integration is often complex and burdened with problems that arise from integrating legacy equipment with the latest video sources. The Curtiss-Wright Rugged Video Gateway Format Converter (RVG-FC1) provides a flexible building block capable of converting between a range of video formats and resolutions (15 different formats and resolutions are supported). The RVG-FC1 is also small, lightweight, and interoperable with the Curtiss-Wright RVG range enabling complex, scalable, solutions to be built quickly and easily.

Furthermore, the entire family of RVG products is qualified to the DO-160G standard making them the only products of their class in the market that are ruggedized for the harsh environmental conditions present in aerospace and defense applications. Highly flexible, the RVG-FC1 supports two independent channels of video conversion. Accepting a wide range of analog and digital video input formats, the RVG-FC1 scales and rate converts the input signals to a similarly wide range of video output formats.

The RVG-FC1 can be configured on the fly via its external RS-422 and CAN control interfaces, or can be configured statically to support a specific mission fit. The RVG-FC1 extends Curtiss-Wright's video management and distribution product line which encompasses switching, recording, and displays.
