HDcctv Alliance the future pathway for analogue HD video
HDcctv Alliance executive director Todd Rockoff claims that HDCVI 2.0 is now THE standard analogue HD interface for surveillance video. "HDCVI 2.0 provides the easiest possible migration from legacy NTSC or PAL video to 720p or 1080p surveillance," he said. "HDCVI 2.0 compliance ensures 100% multi-vendor plug 'n' play remote control. HDCVI 2.0 is the only analogue HD solution based on issued patents with a published specification and a rigorous compliance certification methodology."
The Alliance is also already looking ahead, and has developed a roadmap for the subsequent versions. When the next-generation HDCVI 3.0 standard is introduced, it will provide for cost-effective 4K surveillance video transmission, while remaining backwards compatible with HDCVI 2.0.
The HDCVI 2.0 standard in final preparation has been adopted by a number of semiconductor manufacturers, including California-based Exar, alongside surveillance equipment manufacturing powerhouse Dahua and fast-growing American security brand Gen IV.
Dahua is a world-leading advanced video surveillance solution provider and the inventor of HDCVI technology, and will demonstrate the HDCVI 2.0-compliant, versatile eight-channel DVR HCVR7208A-S2 during ISC West, as well as the HDBW2220R-Z fixed camera.
Exar delivers high performance mixed-signal integrated circuits and advanced subsystem solutions to the video surveillance market. The company will showcase its portfolio of HD video surveillance products, including new PCIe DVR add-in cards for both 960H and HDCVI cameras, as well as new IP and HDCVI camera modules. Exar's commitment to the HDcctv Alliance and the global HDCVI standard continues with two new video processors for HDCVI encode and decode in addition to the camera modules and DVR add-in cards.
Zachary Spradlin, Vice President at Gen IV Technology, said: "As America's first distributor of HDCVI equipment, Gen IV Technology is excited about the progress the HDcctv Alliance is making for the industry. The Alliance has been and will remain instrumental in maintaining interoperability and quality standards in this ever-evolving HD surveillance world."
