The ARINC-818 Specification is an industry standard that defines a digital video interface link and protocol that is used for high-speed digital video display data communications. This Specification enables data generation units and display devices working in aerospace applications to utilize a common link and protocols that support high-bandwidth data specifically for digital video applications. Aerospace applications currently use many different video formats. Video formats differ in their Frame Rates, resolution, pixel density, and interlacing techniques. The ARINC-818 Specification defines how all these video formats are built and mapped to the industry standard Fibre Channel.
