The MC-VCM, currently under development by GRT, is a flyable building block for mission systems. Incorporate sensors, cameras, displays, and HUDs. Extend the life of airborne video components by quickly linking them to ARINC 818 architecture.  The MC-VCM can operate in rugged environments, such as those encountered in turbo-props and helicopters.

Each MC-VCM is factory configured for one of the following:


Four-channel conversion: ARINC 818 to or from other protocols (DVI, VGA, Ethernet, HD-SDI, NTSC/PAL, or STANAG 3350)


Up to 8-channel ARINC 818 cross-point switching


To discuss conversions from other protocols to or from ARINC 818, contact Sales.
