Creates Smooth & Flawless Streams
The secret to smooth, flawless and scalable live streaming from drones and UAVs
The NATO Standards for Video Data Streaming
The same standards that are good for NATO are also good for businesses and individuals. This is because the security of video data is important for everyone, regardless of their size or industry. By following the same standards, businesses and individuals can help to create a more secure environment for video data.
The regular standard
H.265 is an advanced video compression standard allowing for low latency and interruption-free streaming.
MPEG-TS is the most advanced transport stream allowing for multiplex streaming at high quality.
STANAG are standard procedures used to ensure interoperability and compatibility among the various NATO forces.
MISB Is the underlying standard for STANAG implemented by the Motion Imagery Standards Board and commonly used in aerial videos enabling the use of KLV metadata.
Why is this a big deal?
You can equip your drones with the most advanced and highest-performing cameras and sensors. They record and transmit ample amounts of high-resolution imagery and additional data. To generate actionable insights, you need the processing power and technology that supports it. Low latency, synchronization and accuracy are the most critical factors and the smoother the data processing, the better the output.
skiing tourists are missing in a remote avalanche-stricken area. You send drones equipped with high-resolution and multispectral aerial imagery cameras to locate the missing tourists.
Your drone cameras collect multifaceted data, including heat-sensitive and infrared imagery to locate people even if they are trapped under the snow. It simultaneously transfers the info to the rescue mission’s command center and your ground team monitors the real-time footage.
Metadata from the drone provides information on altitude, velocity, angle,
temperature and other factors enabling the exact positioning of the image
being streamed and the physical conditions at the location.
Only the synchronization of metadata with visual imagery allows you
to identify exactly where the missing skiers are, and what state
they are in once the drone finds them.
Regular streaming systems are not compatible with STANAG/MISB
for metadata processing, and the software needs to transcode
the images and data received from the drone.
This adds an extra phase to the processing
and consumes your resources.
Also for imagery, drone cameras use the newer,
low-latency H.265 protocol, whereas regular browser software still runs
on H.264. Again, transcoding requires time and energy slowing down
the process and limiting the amount of data you can process.
With CommX Discover you remove the entire transcoding step from
the streaming process, making it smoother and more reliable.
You get the lowest-latency streaming and you save energy.
You can use your computing power to scale your operations instead of wasting it on recoding.
From Eyes in the Sky to Data Powerhouses
Transforming Industries with Drones and UAVs
Drones and UAVs are rapidly gaining significance in many industries and areas of life.
For security and military purposes, the smooth processing of data from drones, UAVs and aerial systems is particularly time-sensitive. Quick and accurate identification and location of a target - or threat - can determine the outcome.
Sustaining the environment has become a critical objective. Organizations use drones to monitor environmental changes, such as climate shifts, a glacier's melting rate, or bees' migration. They help detect environmental crimes, such as deforestation activities, or the spilling of chemicals into natural waters. All these require large amounts of data from multiple sources that need to be processed efficiently.
Construction firms use drone video streaming to spot damage to tall structures such as bridges, towers or monuments. Critical infrastructures rely on the technology because it’s highly useful in detecting leaks in pipes or defects to electric lines and more. Flawless data processing saves time and energy.
Ensuring public, personal and structural security are often put in the hands of life drone video footage. Private firms, homeland security and law enforcement come to rely increasingly on drone and UAV operations at scale.
