UAV video links take off

Connex, Amimon’s new zero-latency HD wireless video link, is a plug-and-fly system designed specifically for use with drones. It uses robust 5.1-5.8GHz bandwidth, with 2×5 MIMO channels and automatic channel selection to ensure resilient connectivity, free from interference from the UAV controls or other 2.4GHz radio links.

It includes multicasting, to support four receivers simultaneously (this does require extra ground units), while maintaining full HD video (up to 1080p 50/60) with a delay of less than 1 millisecond. Its range (line of sight) is up to 1km. Its drone-friendly features include: built-in OSD view (with MAVLInk based telemetry), and gimbal control over Futaba S.Bus. The Connex kit includes all antennas, cables and connectors required for link setup.

“With its superior performance and affordable price, Connex brings extended HD video transmission range with zero latency to a much broader group of users and applications. It is a game changer for the aerial drone market,” claimed Ram Ofir, Amimon’s CEO.

The air unit has Mini HDMI input, five SMA antenna connectors, a DC jack power connector with 7-19v input, measures 103×63.6×15.6mm and weighs 130 grams, while the ground unit has HDMI(Type A) input, two MMCX antenna connectors, a 4-pin power connector with 8-26v input, measures 129x89x20mm and weighs 260 grams.
