Enterprise Control Systems Ltd (ECS) recently applied to the Patent Office for registration of the design for its Handyview hand-held receiver. This robust, compact, durable and operator-friendly design has now been registered.
The Handyview can be configured as part of a High Definition (HD), Standard Definition (SD) or IP linked system receiving high quality video audio and data. The Handyview is currently in operational service with UK Forces, UK Police and Emergency Services and European Police units.
The success of the digital, encrypted COFDM Handyview has now been supplemented by the Handyview Alpha analogue variant available in a number of different bands.
Handyview is equally effective in dismounted, vehicle mounted and base station modes of operation. This lightweight, rugged, waterproof unit comes with an antenna attached and the option of a magnetic mounted RF antenna for diversity reception, extended range and flexibility of operation. The RF antenna cable is fitted with a quick-release connector for maximum flexibility.
An integral loudspeaker or headphone attachment allows access to the audio channel. An integral Digital Video Recorder is available which allows the MPEG-2 Transport Stream to be recorded directly to an internal hard drive. If the user prefers the product to be recorded externally to the receiver unit, a break out box gives this option.
Handyview is a 4th Generation Remote Viewing Terminal drawing on many years of experience that ECS has gained in this arena. Dating back to the analogue receivers of the early 1990s through the widely used COFDM Briefcase Receivers of the early 2000s, Handyview is the latest in a family of operationally proven receivers that has been developed using operator feedback with the operator in mind.
