Delta Digital Video announced that it was selected to supply video encoders to Saab Australia, who as part of the Warship Asset Management Agreement (WAMA) Alliance is conducting a major upgrade to the ANZAC Class Frigates Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) System. The WAMA Alliance is a strategic partnership between the Commonwealth of Australia, BAE Systems, Saab Australia and Naval Ship Management (NSM) for the total asset management of the Royal Australian Navy’s ANZAC Class Frigates.

Delta Digital Video’s Model 4480E H.264 HD/SD Video Encoders will be integrated into the CCTV System allowing multiple sources of combat system and other video to be converted and input into the CCTV network to be delivered into the operations room and throughout the ship.

The compact, rugged Model 4480E H.264 HD/SD Video Encoder is a network appliance designed to compress High Definition (HD) and Standard Definition (SD) video (HD/SD-SDI, HDMI, RGBHV, RGsB, NTSC, PAL) for transmission over IP networks. The unit converts camera and A/V equipment video to an Ethernet data stream for remote monitoring applications. Utilizing industry-standard H.264 compression, along with flexible adjustments for video resolutions, compression parameters, and network settings, the Model 4480E can be configured to deliver high-quality video at any data rate over an IP network. The unit is easily configured via the Ethernet or serial port. Audio and user-data multiplexing provides for single-stream transmission. The 4480E is compliant with off-the-shelf video players and most decoding hardware. Extended temperature operation makes it ideal for shipboard applications.

The Royal Australian Navy operates eight of the ten ANZAC Class frigates currently in service. Built between 1993 and 2006, the 3,600-tonne (3,500-long-ton) ships boast a top speed of 27-knots (50 km/h; 31 mph) and a range of 6,000 nautical miles (11,000 km; 6,900 mi) at 18 knots (33 km/h; 21 mph). The armament initially consisted of a single 5-inch gun and a point-defense missile system, supported by a missile-armed helicopter. In addition, the ships were fitted for—but not with—a torpedo system, anti-ship missiles, and a close-in weapons system.

The class name, ANZAC, is an acronym derived from the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps of the First World War.
