The IMT DragonFly Transmitter is a superior miniature wireless video transmission system designed to capture real-time, high-quality video from UAV/UGV/Body Cams/Concealments for display on fixed or mobile receive applications. The transmitter features HD/SD-SDI or optional HDMI inputs with COFDM transmission in a small, lightweight chassis. The DragonFly delivers up to 50mW of power in a package weighing less than 1.2 ounces/34 grams, providing long range, reliable HD video transmission.
The DragonFly features HD/SD-SDI or optional HDMI inputs and delivers up to 50mW of power in a package measuring in at 1.85 in. x 1.38 in. x .51 in. (50 mm x 35 mm x 13 mm) that weighs less than 1.2 oz. (34 g), providing long range, reliable HD video transmission. IMT’s COFDM technology ensures the transmission of uninterrupted, live TV pictures over two miles Line-of-Sight (LOS), despite the effects of foliage, challenging terrain, buildings and other common non-line-of-sight limitations. The DragonFly also features internal ISM and GPS anti-jam filters and is available in licensed and unlicensed frequency bands.
Each DragonFly kit comes with various accessories needed to plug and play the system with ease, including mounting accessories, a microdrone ultra-small omni antenna, an HDMI or SDI extension cable and a DC integration power cable. Addition optional accessories include an ultra-small HD-SDI camera with various lens, and RS-485 and S-Bus cables.
The DragonFly is easily managed through a WiFi webpage. An Android™ or iOS device can detect the encrypted WiFi signal and automatically opens a browser window. Additionally, the DragonFly supports RS485 control channels and S-Bus controls through a 900MHz transceiver. The transceiver provides bi-direction controls of the transmitter, accessory camera, gimbal controls and more.
