ANT-1771 Smallest Lightest UAV Drone Micro Encoder / Decoder

Weighing less than 43 grams

BRAY, England, November 12, 2015 -- Antrica, a worldwide supplier of H264 video encoding and streaming solutions, today unveiled the ANT-1772 UAV MICRO, its latest multichannel encoder for airborne and ground Drone encoding and streaming applications over IP. As the world's smallest dual-channel H.264 HD/SD encoding or decoding solution, weighing less than 43 grams.


The ANT-1772 Micro sets a new standard of performance for manned and unmanned airborne platforms, unmanned vehicles, and other robotic units. The ANT-1772 consumes less than 4 watts of power for 1080p30 encoding plus simultaneous PAL /NTSC encoding.

"With the market for unmanned flying and ground Drone systems growing exponentially, developers increasingly need miniaturized, low latency, low data rate, lightweight Video encoding solutions."

ANT-1772 UAV MICRO features simultaneous low-latency streaming of two sources from HD-SDI and analog composite signals ,together with 2 way serial data, audio and Micro SD card recording on board.. The miniature 45 x 45 x18mm board can be integrated easily into a drone design and offers extended temperature and voltage range for operation. As well as encoding the unit can act as a hardware decoder with HD-SDI, Micro HDMI and Composite outputs.

"Antrica has been providing an extensive range of video encoding and decoding solutions to a variety of applications and markets for over 15 years. The ANT-1772 is Antricas first solution specifically designed for the UAV Drone market and meets new standards for miniaturization " said Les Litwin Sales Director of Antrica.

ANT-1771 UAV MICRO is available as a PCB module for integration into UAV systems. The unit will be on display during the ISE show in Amsterdam February 2016.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
