Overview of LEADTOOLS UAS and UAV SDK Technology
Minimal Latency - When viewing UAV streams, it is very important to ensure that you are viewing the stream in real time.
Configurable maximum tolerated latency ensures that users see what is happening in real time.
- Minimal Startup Delay - Viewers on the ground can connect quickly to any MPEG-2 Transport stream and begin viewing the real-time stream immediately
Stable decoders/demultiplexers - Corrupted video is often encountered with air-to-ground streaming.
LEAD's filters and codecs are stable, robust, and handle corrupted data without disrupting the current connection.
LEADTOOLS provides a wide variety of encoders and decoders, including:
KLV Parsing and Synchronization - LEAD's MPEG-2 Transport Demultiplexer allows developers to receive and parse KLV data
from the most popular KLV standards today, including:
- UAV Datalink Local Metadata Set (MISB STD 0601.4 4 March 2010)
- UAV Datalink Minimum Metadata Set (MISB STD 0902.1)
- Predator UAV Basic Universal Metadata Set (MISB EG 0104.4 14 December 2006)
- DVR functionality - Allows viewers to pause, play, rewind, fast forward, and "jump to live" streaming video
Byte-accurate Seeking - In cases where the timestamps of the video are corrupted,
users can still accurately seek the stream using byte seeking
DirectShow and Media Foundation based SDK - All LEADTOOLS Multimedia SDKs leverage Microsoft DirectShow and Media Foundation
technology which means you can add additional features with any DirectShow Filter or Media Foundation Transform such as motion detection
and video stabilization
Multithreaded Decoders - LEAD's decoders are optimized for multi-processor machines.
- Supports UDP and TCP streaming protocols
