HUNTSVILLE, Ala., 5 Nov. 2014. GE Intelligent Platforms in Huntsville, Ala., is introducing the rugged ADEPT4000 compact high-definition digital video tracker with electronic image processing for unmanned vehicles, portable systems, and other small applications.

The HD digital video tracker has the capability to perform tracking, image stabilization and video compression simultaneously in a package designed to minimize size, weight and power (SWaP) in constrained environments.

The video tracker measures 64 by 54 millimeters -- or 75 by 75 millimeters with connectors -- weighs 28 grams, and consumes 4 Watts of power.

The ADEPT4000 combines high performance with low latency simultaneous target tracking with any SD/HD-SDI or parallel digital video signal, electronic video stabilization, moving target detection and video compression.

It incorporates onboard serial links and Ethernet, allowing it to interface to most platforms, and is for easy configuration and device control with an intuitive web-based interface. An optional carrier card and carrier reference design is available to speed evaluation, design and integration.
