Video Image and
    Data Distribution

VIDIS is a big data, real time-streaming server which intakes streaming data from a variety of sensors, transcodes the data if required and makes it available to multiple users across the network. VIDIS is used for data analysis, exploitation and surveillance by providing seamless frame, time and location accurate access to the data.

VIDIS provides services for military use, the task of which is to accept data from sensors, transcode it if necessary and make it available to various users in real time in an optimal, network-efficient manner. Via various open and standardised interfaces (e.g. STANAG 4609), VIDIS provides its services on both the sensor and client side.

As a back-end system VIDIS can be used either stand alone or fully integrated in the Coalition Shared Database environment. VIDIS supports NATO STANAG 4559 AEDP-18 “ISR Streaming Services” and provides the corresponding services. VIDIS is an IP-based interactive “Video on Demand” network solution that allows access to up to 80 Terabyte of data available to users in the basic configuration.

The range of uses for VIDIS extends from military, police and humanitarian operations to technical emergencies, surveying to environmental protection – wherever special parameters and conditions need to be monitored and compared.
