VCM Video Converter Module

The VCM is a flyable and rugged version of GRT’s Stand-Alone Module for ARINC 818, which has proven itself for years in labs, simulator settings and aircraft production facilities.
A flight-hardened VCM can be ordered for DVI or VGA to ARINC 818, and ARINC 818 to DVI. In addition, custom analog conversions (NTSC, PAL, STANAG 3350, RS-170) are also possible on demand.
The VCM is matched to your ICD and can be certified to DO-254 (Level B) and DO-160. Four mounting options provide maximum flexibility where space is precious.

Multi-channel video converter module, the new MC-VCM increases the switching or conversion capacity. Flyable and rugged, the MC-VCM is ideal for use in harsh environments, such as those encountered in turbo-props and helicopters.
Each MC-VCM is factory configured for one of the following :
– 4 ARINC 818 conversion channels to or from other protocols (DVI, VGA, Ethernet, HD-SDI, NTSC/PAL, or STANAG 3350)
– 8 ARINC 818 cross-point switching channels

ARINC 818 protocol

ARINC 818: Avionics digital video bus

The ARINC 818 video interface and protocol standard serves high-bandwidth, low-latency, uncompressed digital video transmission.

The standard has been advanced by ARINC and the aerospace community to meet the stringent needs of high-performance digital video. The protocol was adopted, prior to its official release, by major aerospace and military programs, and has become the de facto standard for high-performance military video systems.
