Tiger - Fully Rugged Military Video Encoder H.265 / H.26

The Tiger Family by GS-Tech is H.265 (HEVC) / H.264 3G SDI/ Composite Video Encoder / Decoder. 

Fully rugged enclosure with MIL-Spec certificates.

Tiger is a powerful H.265 (HEVC) / H.264  (AVC) fully ruggedized video encoder and streaming platform that is designed to support video transmission needs in harsh field environments. 

With bypass video outputs, low latency encoding, and low power consumption, Tiger is non-intrusive and yet feature-rich. 

Tiger is capable of capturing single 3G-SDI or  HD-SDI or Composite video input  simultaneously and encoding using video encoding standards) H.265 (HEVC) or H.264  (MPEG-4 AVC standard. 

It can create up to 3 encoded video streams per input. 

The encoding parameters are highly configurable with support for main  (H.265/H.264), baseline & high profiles  (H.264) with many bitrate configurations (54  Kbps to 20 Mbps; Constant & Variable rate control). 

All streams are then sent out from the 1Gbps  Ethernet output. 

The Tiger design is easily customizable for different types of video input formats such as  DVI and HDMI. 

KLV (Key-Length-Value) metadata insertion is supported via RS-232 or Ethernet. KLV is  “muxed” into the MPEG-2 TS container. The resulting MPEG-2 TS video is then streamed out over UDP with optional RTP  support headers. This standardization ensures interoperability with the decoders and displays retrieving the encoded stream. 

Easy field integration was an essential requirement when developing the Tiger. The product was designed with significant customer involvement and feedback and should fit into several environments where versatile video streaming is required.


  • 3G HD SDI+ Composite video input with loopback HDMI video in (optional)
  • Certified MIL SPEC 810&461 (certified international lab)
  • Dual stream of H.265/H.264 with different setup 
  • 1 GB Ethernet port
  • Web server configuration
  • KLV meta data
  • Customize design
  • Low power and size
  • Low latency mode

  • Internal recording (optional)
Rugged Video Encoder Decoder DVR

Tiger – fully rugged composite video encoder/ decoder/ DVR for military industry


  • Military & Security
  • Industrial 
  • Installed on any type of vehicle 


Tiger is ruggedized to survive harsh  environments (shock, vibration, humidity,  dust, sand) and temperatures from -20°C to  70°C (MIL-STD-810G & IP67) as well as fully  tested with 461 specifications in an  international certified lab. 

It comes with dedicated mounting holes for mounting on to racks. 

Its rugged small form factor design makes it  easy to use and integrate into any system  design and meets the SWaP (size, weight &  power) requirements for all of the vertical  markets.  

In the default configuration, the product  accepts single high definition video inputs in  3G-SDI, HD-SDI or Composite format through  BNC connectors. Audio, 1Gbps Ethernet &  RS-232 are routed over a 14-pin rugged  circular MIL spec connector. 

Other video input formats and connector types  are possible with small modifications to the  design even for low volume opportunities. 

Control of encoding settings and retrieval of the Tiger health information are all performed using  web GUI(i.E, Chrome and others) and API built around SNMPv2 for simple and secure  communication. 

This API is built for easy integration into existing customer applications. 

Several sample applications are provided to ensure prompt integration into a working system.  Configuration can also be done using the built in web server GUI which is accessed from a browser  on a networked device. 

This GUI can be used to configure all encoding and network settings, update the device, save  settings, and retrieve status information. Support for uploading of XML configuration files allow  for quick and easy configuration of deployable units. 

The product can be modified to meet your requirements such as different video input formats. Like all GS Tech Rugged Solutions products, this product has a long life cycle. 

GS tech has a technical support team to offer assistance and resolve any technical challenges  associated with the product.
