Product Overview

The RuggedCONNECT™ Smart Video Switcher is a highly integrated standalone device that acquires, processes, and displays real-time video sensor data for systems operating in harsh environments, including vehicle-based local situational awareness (LSA), driver vision enhancer (DVE) applications, and railway inspection. Powerful processing capabilities enable the deployment of advanced machine learning capabilities to further increase intelligence and awareness for end-users.

The RuggedCONNECT Smart Video Switcher includes customizable, highly configurable video interfaces. Support for GigE Vision and Def Stan 00-082 streaming video protocols on dual 1 Gbps Ethernet channels make it the perfect solution to implement networked, open standard, interoperable video management system.

Scalable, distributed video

The RuggedCONNECT leverages Pleora’s distributed video architecture, which converts video into a GigE Vision-compliant stream that allows multiple units to be networked together to create larger scale video switching systems with different video input/output combinations.

Powerful processing

Combining the high-performance networking capabilities of RuggedCONNECT with the power of an NVIDIA GPU, designers can easily add AI image processing and graphics overlay decision-support capabilities. The compute power of the NVIDIA GPU supports applications such as AI/machine learning, image fusion, 360 degree stitching, overlay, image enhancement, and rail inspection.

Customization options

The highly configurable RuggedCONNECT architecture enables fast development of products to address various sensor and display interfaces, such as HD-SDI, VGA, or custom sensor/display requirements. This same architecture enables Pleora to add more interfaces, support a different mix of interfaces, additional network interfaces, and general communications ports.
