ŠŠThe heart of the Skyquest Video
Management System (VMS)
ŠŠTakes care of video signal strength
even when being routed to multiple
displays
ŠŠConverts VGA to video to enable
images such as moving maps to be
recorded or transmitted in composite/

ŠŠEnables multiple video sources to be
viewed simultaneously on multiple
user's displays
ŠŠRemoves the need for complex aircraft
wiring by using fewer cables
The VDSU-1407 is one in a series of comprehensive video
conversion and distribution units designed to simplify the routing of
multiple video and VGA signals on surveillance aircraft. Typically
the unit is used in applications where multiple video inputs (for
example video inputs from a multi-sensor gyrostabilized camera
system) and additional signals from moving maps, mission
computers, video recorders and up/down links need to be routed
to multiple displays in the aircraft.
ŠŠEnables video routing to be changed in
By routing the original source signals to the VDSU-1407, a single
multi-core cable can then be connected to each display, recorder
and downlink to enable limitless switching of signals.
ŠŠProvides touch screen commands from
The VDSU-1407 offers aircraft integrators and installers a modern
solution to traditional complex aircraft installations and simplified
cabling which delivers cost and weight saving.

which signal to send to video recorders
or downlinks on the fly)
any display to any peripheral
ŠŠQuad image generation (option)
Video Distribution
The VDSU-1407 can manage a multitude of video signals that
can be actively switched to output to up to 6 displays, multiple
video recorders and video downlinks, plus an additional 4 fixed
composite outputs for sending to other equipment on the aircraft.

Outputs
The Outputs of the unit are via nine D38999 connectors
and four BNC connectors.
The unit can be ordered with quad generators as an option
if required. The quad card allows up to 4 composite images
to be scaled to fit into a single display. The quad display
has proven invaluable in missions where the user requires
all his information in a single glance, and when combined
with a touchscreen display, gives the user the ability to
instantly bring up the image of interest to full screen just by
touching the appropriate quad sector.
The VDSU-1407, when used with other Skyquest products in
a full Video Management System really offers the user the
most advanced and effective mission system available in the
airborne surveillance market today.

The unit is controlled using a remote bus connected to
all the other Skyquest LRU’s in the system. Any Skyquest
display linked into the system has the ability to select what
channel to view, full control over the video recorders and
allows video routing to be changed in flight to select a
different signal to go to the recorders or downlinks.
