Low Latency Performance Communications The Piranha™ video system provides low latency video compression for IP transport and incorporates full support for combined metadata applications such as ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance), UAV (Unmanned Airborne Vehicle), and KLV (Key-Length-Value) systems. The metadata is incorporated within the MPEG-2 transport stream assuring timecode accuracy. The Piranha features performance, reliability, and flexibility with 150 millisecond end-to-end latency and advanced networking features such as logical multicast and traffic shaping.
The ISR Workhorse The Piranha encoding/decoding (codec) system is ideal for ISR mission deployment, typically relaying video feeds as delivered by unmanned airborne vehicles and other data rich camera systems. Based on Haivision’s telecom grade architecture, Piranha delivers deterministic performance over long periods of time. It can be tuned to deliver low latency video over a wide spectrum of network capabilities. The resolution, frame rate, and compression bitrate can be adjusted on-the-fly to achieve optimal video quality.
H.264 with KLV Serial and Line 21 Closed Caption The Piranha supports both KLV data via a serial port and line 21 closed caption data from the video signal with H.264 video compression and video frame time stamping.
Power Features The Piranha supports H.264 encoding of standard definition video in either analog format (composite/s-video) or digital format (SDI). The encoding resolution (Full-D1 or Half-D1), the video bitrate (150kbps to 5Mbps), and the frame rate (3 to 30 frames per second) are all independently adjustable to assure the optimal video quality for any bandwidth requirements. As with all Haivision technology, encoding adjustments are “on-the-fly” and take effect immediately. Reducing the latency between video capture and delivery is essential to mission-critical video transmission or remote system control. The Piranha delivers absolutely consistent performance with end-to-end latency as low as 180 milliseconds. The Piranha is available as a single encoder/decoder in a 1RU configuration or as a 5 encoder/decoder blades in a 3RU configuration.
