Key Length Value (KLV) Metadata can now be processed and transported by VBrick's H.264 Networked Video Appliances. The addition, says VBrick, significantly improves the utility of IP video for surveillance-oriented applications by military, intelligence and civilian customers.
As a result, important information such as latitude, longitude, altitude, time and field of view can be synchronised and embedded into the video stream.
"Providing our customers with the most comprehensive, standards-based solution for interpreting the mission-critical data associated with IP video significantly increases the value of the motion imagery acquired by military and civilian flight platforms," said John Shaw, chief operating officer, VBrick. "VBrick now stands alone in offering a completely integrated solution that supports operations in the field."
Speaking to IE, Shaw continued: "The military especially is seeing a significant uptick in H.264 deployments for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance because their networks are far away and satellite-based. So they're seeing tremendous value in an IP network-based technology that gives unparalleled situational awareness. Military customers, especially, need the [facility for] highest quality over lower bit-rate with lower latency."
VBrick's KLV solution is now included as a standard feature on all H.264 Networked Video Appliances.
