ATLANTIC CITY, NJ, JUNE 24, 2014 — Integrated Microwave Technologies, LLC (IMT), a Business Unit within the Vitec Group’s Videocom Division, and a leader in advanced digital microwave systems for MAG (Military, Aerospace & Government) markets, features its Compact Portable Transmitter (CPTx-II) at Police Security Expo 2014 (Booth 1315). The CPTx-II can be used for a variety of law enforcement applications and vehicles ranging from police motorcycles to marine patrols.
The CPTx-II is a lightweight RF video transmitter that delivers HD/SD output at up to eight Watts in 2k DVB-T COFDM mode. It supports video/audio/data/telemetry with selectable modulation bandwidths of 6, 7, and 8MHz, and weighs less than seven pounds. The maneuverability of a police motorcycle coupled with video transmission capabilities offer significant advantages on crowded streets for surveillance, monitoring and crowd control applications. Another application for the motorcycle-mounted CPTx-II is at the scene of an accident, where the officers can provide live video for emergency response assessment and response. The CPTx-II can also be used in motorcades and other special events. In addition, the CPTx-II is ideal for law enforcement marine patrol operations, as it can be easily transferred from one marine patrol vehicle to another.
“The CPTx-II was designed to offer exceptional RF performance with ease of operation in marine patrol and small mobile vehicles, and we are excited to show it to those in attendance at Police Security Expo 2014,” says IMT Divisional Chief Executive Stephen Shpock. “Because of the CPTx-II’s ultra-compact size it is ideal for marine vehicles and it plays an important role in public security monitoring on the water.”
The video from CPTx-II can be received on any MPEG-4 capable handheld receivers, receive sites or command centers. The CPTx-II is capable of 30 percent bit-rate reduction and video quality improvement, compared to other encoders, by using advanced features of the H.264 codec. It is also capable of AES encryption, making it ideal for public security monitoring, covert surveillance and other secure transmission applications.
The CPTx-II features a push-button interface that allows quick control of preset selection, transmit/standby, hi/low RF power and internal color bars. For advanced functions, an easy-to-use administration software package is supplied with a GUI via RS232 to a PC.
