Link Research has announced the launch of its strategic video surveillance system specifically for use in urban environments.

Designed principally for government security agencies and military deployment, the Digital Urban Video system (DUV) enables video surveillance to be conducted in densely built-up areas and over significantly extended ranges making the platform ideal for inner city policing. The new DUV system is a direct response to the requirement for improved counter-terrorism surveillance in urban environments, representing an advance in both performance and facilities for mission-critical applications.

The key breakthrough with the DUV solution is its ability to overcome the traditional challenges of built-up locations for analogue wireless communication links, particularly with the high bandwidths required for live video transmission.

Matthew Richards, Vislink Group’s director of the defence, law enforcement and security business division, explains: “Our systems have been proven in the most demanding conditions around the world by broadcasters and newsgatherers, who rely on our technology to acquire and transmit breaking news. We see a clear correlation between this application and the specific requirements of government and defence agencies, creating a dedicated solution for this sector. The combination of our ultra low latency digital COFDM (Coded Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) transmitters and receivers, plus the cellular interoperable architecture, brings together the tools required for modern surveillance irrespective of the environment. This will enable a new level of image resolution, range and performance, in line with the ever changing challenges faced by our defence and law enforcement agencies.”

Link Research’s low latency COFDM radio technology is designed to overcome the traditional issues of multi-path distortion and transmission failure in typical urban environments, using multiple antennas and transmission paths to avoid dead spots and deliver enhanced performance and range coverage.

The entire DUV system is underpinned by the company’s encoding technology for performance reliability.

Delivering real-time images for critical missions and decision-making, DUV can be deployed in any environment, using a combination of covert and overt body-worn products, manned and unmanned vehicle installations, systems for perimeter and border deployment, as well as for use with fixed and mobile assets.

All equipment can be linked to provide fully-networked integration, on the ground and in the air.

An expert consultation service is available for complete turnkey solutions, including city centre networks, vehicle installations, and re-deployable modular systems.
