AVIONICS DIGITAL VIDEO BUS (ADVB) HIGH DATA RATE
|Publication Date:||16 December 2019|
Scope and Purpose
This document defines digital video interface standards for all types of flight deck video. It represents the consensus view of airlines, airframe manufacturers, avionic suppliers, and others who participated in the development of this standard. This document is based on the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Fibre Channel Audio Video (FC-AV) defined by ANSI INCITS 356-2002.
Digital video transfer is the preferred method onboard aircraft for displaying both low data rate (sensor) and high data rate applications (image presentation). This standard defines a video interface protocol which can be used in avionics systems between video capture, image processing, computer graphics image generating equipment, and displays requiring the transmission of real-time video signals onboard aircraft.
This standard will minimize avionics system cost and aircraft maintenance costs by providing a limited number of standard video interfaces adapted to avionics needs. It will optimize interchangeability, maintainability, test equipment, etc. It will support a variety of development activities including Cockpit Display Systems (CDS), Head-Up Display (HUD), and video recording. Throughout this document, Avionics Digital Video Bus will be referred to as ADVB.
