The DragonFly, an ultra-miniature wireless video system from Integrated Microwave Technologies (IMT), has begun shipping to users. The Dragonfly is available in a range of kits to fit various applications, including drones, sports and broadcast. Each offering caters to the specific needs of the application.
The DragonFly has a compact and lightweight form factor and features minimised power requirements, making it ideal for drone and mobile use. “We realise the broad range of possibilities the DragonFly offers, which is why we designed multiple variations of the product to fit many applications,” says John Payne IV, president of IMT. “With the DragonFly achieving ultra-low latency, users can utilise it for remote control applications.”
The DragonFly features HD/SD-SDI or optional HDMI inputs and delivers up to 50mW of power in a package measuring in at 1.85 in. x 1.38 in. x .51 in. (50 mm x 35 mm x 13 mm) that weighs less than 1.2 oz. (34 g), providing long range, reliable HD video transmission. IMT’s COFDM technology ensures the transmission of uninterrupted, live TV pictures over two miles Line-of-Sight (LOS), despite the effects of foliage, challenging terrain, buildings and other common non-line-of-sight limitations. The DragonFly also features internal ISM and GPS anti-jam filters and is available in licensed and unlicensed frequency bands.
