TICO technology used in 3G-SDI applications for business jets
Mont-Saint-Guibert, July 17, 2020 – intoPIX is excited to announce that Innovative Advantage, leaders in Aircraft audio and video distribution systems, has integrated the TICO RDD35 technology in its AVDS - Audio Video Distribution System.
To be part of the latest trends and because their jets are used as “meeting rooms in the sky” as well, Innovative Advantage contacted intoPIX to find a solution to distribute 4K content for their business jet customers. These customers expect the highest quality content during those long flights with all communication means to continue working and meeting at cruising altitude.
Using TICO Technology, Innovative Advantage is now able to upgrade all aircraft from HD to 4K, and install 4K monitors in their business jets, without having to completely re-think the wiring system and consequently their certification. This upgrade represents a major value for the business jet community, typically very demanding in their access and use of the most advanced technological knowhow.
“intoPIX was the only one to allow perfect quality video in full 4K60 to be carried over the existing AVDS backbone and certified infrastructure with ease of integration” explained Greg Smith, VP Engineering at Innovative Advantage.
“Our TICO technology allows to move from an HD solution to a 4K solution while maintaining 3G SDI with an extremely low complexity, low latency and lossless image quality. We are delighted to have been able to meet these needs” said Catherine Stroobants, Field Application Engineer at intoPIX.
TICO-RDD35 is a smart upgrade path to manage higher resolutions (4K, 8K, …) and frame rates while assuring visual quality, keeping power and bandwidth at a reasonable budget and significantly reducing the complexity and cost of a system, a chip or an infrastructure.
The two companies welcome you to contact their respective sales teams to sample the TICO technology and the Innovative Advantage’s AVDS.
