Proteus-IV Proteus-IV Proteus-IV

HD + SD Video Overlay Device

Video Overlay is a method by which computer generated images are superimposed on video. Properly transformed images appear as if they are an integral part of the scene without impeding the video of the actual environment.

Proteus-IV is our versatile and powerful HD video overlay device. It is a high-performance stand-alone High-Definition (HD) and Standard-Definition (SD) video overlay system. It overlays crisp text, graphics, and telemetry data on live video. From overlaying GPS information and custom title to more advanced graphic widgets, users can easily customize Proteus with an external keyboard. Typical applications include aerial surveillance, oceanography, industrial automation, medical, scientific, law enforcement and many more.
