LITLINGTON, England, 20 March 2011. Cambridge Pixel Ltd. in Litlington, England, is introducing the SPx Radar Image Server (SPx-RIS) for point to multipoint radar display applications. The system receives radar video in a computer server, and creates as many as four scan-converted images to provide one image for full coverage of the radar and as many as three views of radar imagery for zoom views of selected areas.


The SPx RIS can distribute as many as four scan-converted radar images to several display clients including standard web browsers or custom-written applications in Linux or Windows.

The system "is for cost-sensitive security and traffic-management applications where, as a consequence of commodity pricing of radars, there is growing interest in integrating radar sensor data as part of any monitoring system," says David Johnson, managing director of Cambridge Pixel.

The SPx RIS integrates "radar video into view-only monitoring applications such as CCTV systems," Johnson explains. "Such is the flexibility of this software-based approach that different views of the radar coverage can be monitored at several locations on anything from a low-cost laptop to a high-resolution video wall."

The system is configurable through a server-side configuration tool to define the frequency of update of the images, the radar color, and the zoom. It also can be configured to send images at a frequency to match operational requirements.

The system also can send related textual information with the images to label the image with the sensor and location, as well as to provide a record and replay capability. For more information contact Cambridge Pixel online at www.cambridgepixel.com.
