PHOENIX, AZ, JULY 16, 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, introduces its four-channel Suitcase Receiver (SCRx) at ALEA Expo 2014, the Airborne Law Enforcement Association’s 44th Annual Conference and Exposition (Booth 409).
IMT’s SCRx is a ruggedized COFDM (DVB-T-compliant) dual-diversity receiver with the capability to receive and decode up to four independent RF channels and display them individually or in a quad-screen format. The front end of the receiver combines high-dynamic range, low-noise amplifiers and a four-way RF splitter, producing exceptional RF performance without sacrificing sensitivity. The SCRx is integrated into a portable, IP66-rated hard storm case with two integrated LCD screens in order to view received content and adjust system controls.
“We listened to the needs of the law enforcement community and are excited to introduce the new Suitcase Receiver to those in attendance at ALEA 2014,” says IMT Chief Executive Stephen Shpock. “Its ability to view content, both individually and using the quad-screen format, is a great asset in the field for public security monitoring and video tracking.”
The SCRx features four dual-diversity COFDM demodulators using maximum-ratio combining, which significantly improves the robustness of higher-data-rate COFDM modulation. It also features four MPEG2/H.264 high-profile SD/HD decoders, which feed into a four-input, multi-view, 17-inch LCD monitor. The monitor can display all four transmissions in a quad pattern or display one video transmission on a full screen. In addition, SCRx is designed with a second five-inch touch-screen LCD for controlling the unit. Parameters include signal strength, de-modulator lock, decryption active, decoding indicators and battery statistics. Both displays have brightness controls allowing for optimal nighttime or daylight viewing.
SCRx is designed with a built-in scan function, aiding in signal and channel identification, and integrated non-removable internal storage with 500GB SSD capacity with optional video playback. It includes field-replaceable battery packs that allow for a minimum of three hours of run time between charges. The unit can also be plugged into a vehicle’s 12-V power outlet or a standalone 120-/240-VAC power supply for unlimited operational capability. In addition, it features AES BCRYPT decryption capabilities, making it ideal for the most secure applications.
For advanced functions such as changing frequency plans, AES decryption keys, or unit naming, an easy-to-use administration software package is supplied that allows users to establish and store up to 32 custom-preset configurations. The presets can store as little or as much information as the administrator wishes and their values can be locked in place for later recall. Full access control ensures that users will not inadvertently corrupt mission-critical settings.
The Suitcase Receiver includes accessories such as a 120/240VAC power supply, two small rod-style omnidirectional microphones, high-gain antennas, along with assorted cables. In addition, IMT provides several optional add-ons, including a range of high-gain antennas and a Wi-Fi Live Streaming adapter, as well as compatible speakers and headphones.
