HD Real-time Video for Border Security

In response to rising threats governments across the world are increasing border surveillance to enforce their homeland security and counter criminal activities. HD video surveillance is a key part of a multi-layered approach involving video, audio, radar, and sensors (thermal, vibration) that combine to give a complete border protection and surveillance system. The real-time video provides enhanced safety, reduced cost and more effectively helps to stop border incursions.

A system built around the HDAV2000KLV supports a single HD-SDI input channel for HD video surveillance data for inspection and recording and 4x NTSC/PAL/RS-170 video channels for SD sources. KLV data from external sensors can be extracted from VANC embedded metadata on the HD-SDI input and inserted into the H.264 transport stream. The H.264 streams can be streamed to a remote control station for real-time monitoring and stored to local disk for evidential purposes.

System Details

Surveillance System


  • Capture from HD-SDI at up to 1080p30
  • 4x Composite NTSC/PAL/RS-170 inputs
  • Real time, full size H.264 encoding at full frame rate
  • KLV extraction of VANC data embedded in HD-SDI input
  • Ultra Low Latency technology with latency below 40ms
  • Stream multiple channels to remote command station
  • Optional local storage for archival and evidential purposes (SATA, USB2)


Optional Enhancements

  • The HDAV2000KLV has a stereo audio output that can be used as a talkback channel from remote command post to surveillance system allowing live interaction with on going situation.
  • For mobile surveillance systems (ground vehicle, air, sea), CAN (Controller Area Network) and GPS PCI/104 modules can be added to the system and used as metadata sources to be synchronized and embedded in the data stream
