IMT’s Mini Handheld Wireless Video Receiver

New RF Central Mini DirectVu Handheld Video Assist COFDM Diversity Receiver (MDVU) is designed to pair with the RF Central microLite wireless camera transmitter.

Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT) recently launched its RF Central Mini DirectVu Handheld Video Assist COFDM Diversity Receiver (MDVU). Specific models operate in the 2GHz or 5.725-5.826 bands.

The Mini DirectVu is a DVB-T compliant COFDM dual-input maximal ratio combining diversity handheld receiver with an integrated five-inch high brightness LCD touchscreen display. It delivers outstanding RF performance and durability, ease of operation, and high DVB-T quality. It also auto-detects and decodes MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 H.264 streams.

The Mini DirectVu provides high quality and reliable wireless video links in both line-of-sight (LOS) and non-line-of-sight conditions, and is ruggedized and battery-powered for maximum portability. Designed to be primarily handheld, it includes a tabletop kickstand and a 1/4-20 screw mount for tripods or clamps.

Options include DVR record and playback using standard playback controls, and a built-in Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) server that enables video streaming over Ethernet for remote software or hardware decoders. This allows multiple remote viewers to monitor the same stream simultaneously. Its scan function allows the Mini DirectVu to quickly find and lock automatically to the incoming transmission. In addition to the built-in display, the unit also has a HDMI output.

An internal integrated battery supplies two hours of runtime. Optional externally hot-swappable Sony battery packs extend operating time to four hours. It features an ergonomic rubber hand grip, making it durable and easy to handle.

“We based the new Mini DirectVu on our existing nine-inch DirectVu, which allows us to provide an unequaled value in a high-quality COFDM receiver/monitor for ENG, confidence monitoring, sporting events and video-assist applications,” says John Payne IV, president of IMT. “Today, with wireless video being used in more and more situations, including UAV applications, we’re offering a product that has a smaller form factor and a touchscreen LCD for creatives who want to make sure they get the shot with minimal set up and hassle.”
