Make your Systems Work Together

Pitch

Unlimited Communication

Pitch Talk is a new communications framework to support distributed simulation. It covers a wide range of applications, from pilot and crew to theatre level command & control training.

Pitch Talk enables high fidelity simulation with unlimited channels of radio, intercom, audio and chat. It makes it easy to design, centrally manage and deploy exercises.

Pitch Talk comes with a radio client and an office style client. It provides a wide range of integration opportunities, including customizable radio panels, embeddable communications interfaces and HLA/DIS integration.

Features

Mix voice, chat and radio

Pitch Talk allows for an unlimited mix of voice, chat, radio and intercom channels to meet your training needs. Instructors can monitor and participate in all communications.

Centralized management

Pitch Talk gives you centralized control over all channels, clients and their configuration in real-time. No more running around to configure individual workstations.

Record and review

Add Pitch Recorder to your setup and record and review Pitch Talk data, HLA/DIS simulation data, tactical data link data and custom protocols with perfect synchronization.

Build your own user interfaces

Build custom radio panels or other applications to meet your specific needs using the Client API. It is available in C++ and Java and comes with sample code to get you started.

Embed in your simulators

Add professional communication features to simulation rigs for air, land or sea. Integrate the Client API with your hardware and mix specialized and generic clients.

Connect to other systems

Communicate with existing communication solutions or partner solutions using the highly configurable HLA or DIS interface.

Highly scalable

Use your bandwidth more efficiently with Pitch Talk. It uses sender-side filtering as well as state of the art audio codecs that use a fraction of the bandwidth of traditional voice solutions.

Train across sites

Pitch Talk is based on our famous communications technology, proven in international training exercises. Add Pitch Booster and running across WAN is a breeze.

Train in secure environments

As opposed to other solutions, Pitch Talk runs just as well without any Internet connection. This makes it ideal for training in secure environments.

Extend Pitch Talk with the LVC Connector

  • Extend Pitch Talk with live connections to real radios
  • Live and Virtual radio communications through Pitch Talk’s connection to real radios
  • Real and Simulated Radios interconnected
  • Seamlessly connect real tactical radios with virtual radios in Pitch Talk

Connect live Radio

Pitch’s LVC Connector is a small electronics device that connects live radios to a computer running Pitch Talk, bridging Live and Virtual users,

Virtual Environments

Users of live radios can communicate with Pitch Talk users in virtual environments; for example, a JTAC in the field with only a live radio can communicate with pilots in virtual aircraft (flight simulators) and simulated command posts.

The user interface to a live radio

Pitch Talk’s virtual radio Client GUIs, or your custom GUIs, can be the user interface to a live radio without users needing to learn how to operate a complicated real radio. 

Worth its Price

A PC-based simulated radio is an order of magnitude less expensive to acquire and use than a real military radio. 

Reduce Wear and Tear

Military radios are best saved for real military operations. Conducting training with simulated radios, with a bridge to one or a few live radios, reduces wear and tear on combat-qualified military radios.

Let Pitch Talk Expand

LVC Connector lets Pitch Talk expand the number of users who can participate in live training exercises beyond the number of available live radios.
