Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) March 15, 2010

HDcctv Alliance®, the global security industry consortium established to manage and promote technical standards for HDcctv™ equipment interoperability, announced today that five new members – Analog Devices, Cop UK, Pacific Corporation, UFINE and Win4Net – have joined the Alliance. The Alliance is quickly growing its international membership with registration available at http://www.highdefcctv.org or at their Booth #42001, at ISC West, Las Vegas, March 24-26, where many HDcctv Alliance members will be demonstrating their products.

HDcctv-based systems transmit HDTV signals digitally over conventional CCTV media without packetization and without any perceivable compression latency. The HDcctv Alliance has partnered with SMPTE to reference the family of broadcast video interfaces known as HD-SDI to create a derivative standard to enable plug-and-play security systems and equipment that deliver high-resolution, high-definition (HD) surveillance video with no transmission delays, no image artifacts from transmission, with the highest possible signal integrity.

With new members joining from Japan, Korea, England, and the USA, the Alliance is expanding their already significant international presence and diverse array of security products, from component, OEM and branded equipment manufacturers to security sales, support and system installers.

New Alliance member Analog Devices, Inc (NYSE: ADI) is a multinational semiconductor company, headquartered in Norwood, Massachusetts, with design and manufacturing facilities throughout the world, specializing in data conversion and signal conditioning technology.

“Analog Devices is constantly evaluating emerging technologies such as HDcctv to determine alignment to our signal processing product capabilities. We are excited to join the Alliance as an actively contributing member and look forward to continuing the process of positioning our existing and potential new product developments for adoption within the burgeoning HDcctv application space,” said Michael Long, Analog Devices’ security segment manager.

Cop UK, based in North England, with offices in Taiwan, China, Scandinavia and the USA, have supplied and supported more than 2,000,000 products to the security industry in the UK with installations ranging from single-owner/manager companies to large corporations with national installation bases, with an annual turnover in the UK in excess of 10,000,000 USD.

“Cop UK believes the HDcctv Alliance represents a major step forward in meeting the ever-increasing demand for higher-quality, higher-resolution CCTV for our customer base that network camera solutions cannot fulfill,” said Chris Bentley, CEO Cop UK. “Many of our customers have no networking background and consider network cameras as belonging to the ‘big installers club’: too expensive and complicated to install. HDcctv is the logical way forward for small installations that represents a large proportion of the total UK CCTV installation base and fits our customer base perfectly.”

“HDcctv ideally suits our customers’ requirements for quality and ease of installation, at an affordable price point. Our plan is to be selling Cop UK HDcctv products in the UK by the end of 2010 that will include our own brand cameras and embedded DVRs currently under development. We will also be launching a small range of ancillary items like repeaters to provide our customers with a one-stop solution for HDcctv,” Chris added.

Pacific Corporation is the first Japanese company to join the HDcctv Alliance and will demonstrate a 1080p30 auto-focus 18x-zoom camera built to meet HDcctv v1.0 specifications in their ISC West Booth #42003.

“By joining the HDcctv Alliance we gain the ability to collaborate with and share the resources of many companies that have the same goal of bringing the highest quality HD video to the main stream CCTV market,” said Isao Omata, director of sales, Pacific Corporation. “We can seamlessly work with HDcctv members and component manufacturers to ensure our products meet high performance standards and are interoperable, like our HDcctv zoom camera we will be demonstrating at ISC West which incorporates HDcctv Alliance member AltaSens’ wide dynamic range image sensor.”

Win4NET, Ltd, headquartered in Seoul, Korea, manufactures a diverse array of security products including DVR’s, HVR’s, NVR’s, network software solutions, video servers and auxiliary products that include speed dome cameras, storage boxes, housing and bracket, and system equipment. The Trium Security brand, established in 2007 as a separate business entity of Win4NET, Ltd., stands apart as an experienced, professional brand name in the North American security industry and will be exhibiting at ISC West in Booth #23097.

“Joining the HDcctv Alliance is in line with our goals to build a new business foundation based on new products that match the customer’s need, combined with extensive promotional campaigns and increased sales,” said Chris Wembridge, Win4NET Sales Manager. “HDcctv and Win4NET principles are consistent: that surveillance and physical security products should be reliable, cost effective, and readily integrated into new, or concurrently with, existing installations and procedures.”

UFINE Logics & Chips Co., Ltd., located in Gyeonggi-do, Korea, just released a single-chip image signal processor (ISP) optimized for high-resolution applications including HDcctv cameras. UFINE’s ISP chip includes HDcctv interface logic and can process 1080p30 images while implementing such functions as wide dynamic range (WDR), 3D DNR, 3A (AE, AWB, AF), OSD, motion detection, digital zooming and more. Unique functions can easily be added by firmware inside the microcontroller unit (MCU) embedded in the chip.

“We believe that joining the HDcctv Alliance provides a good opportunity for UFINE and our customers, who are CCTV camera manufacturers developing HDcctv cameras,” said Chang-Hyun, Nam, vice president, UFINE Logics & Chips Co., Ltd. “By implementing HDcctv features in the ISP, UFINE makes it easy for our customers to develop cost-effective HDcctv cameras. Together with our customer partners, we intend to contribute to HDcctv market expansion as an active member of HDcctv Alliance.”

Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) June 1, 2010

HDcctv Alliance®, the global security industry consortium established to manage and promote technical standards for HDcctv equipment interoperability, announced today that ACULA, a video industry OEM/ODM specialist since 1993 and world-class provider of CCTV video products, will join the Alliance with plans to market an HDcctv-compliant receiver/repeater.

HDcctv surveillance cameras deliver digital high definition video over coaxial cable. The HDcctv Alliance standards enable interoperable plug-and-play high definition (HD) security systems with the highest possible signal integrity, without any perceivable compression latency and no transmission delays or image artifacts from transmission-related compression.

ACULA has joined the Alliance, recognizing the value of delivering HD video to the surveillance market over existing cable infrastructure and the importance of participating in a standards body for interoperability to maximize its opportunities in this new product category.

“The resolution of the composite video signal employed by the security industry for more than five decades is too low for the modern world of surveillance. We need clearer, higher quality video,” said Louis Jean, president of ACULA Technology Corp. “HDcctv meets the needs to deliver high definition surveillance video while making it easy to replace old equipment using the existing cable infrastructure. HDcctv will become popular in the video surveillance industry.”

“The HDcctv Alliance provides lots of useful information, specification and details about the HDcctv standard. We can just follow the specification without spending time and money to define another one,” noted Louis Jean. “We also would like to work and cooperate closely with other members, share experiences with each other and let the end-users know that HDcctv systems offer more benefits than network camera based systems.”

HDcctv Alliance member companies have access to complete HDcctv specifications and are licensed to use the HDcctv logo on compliant equipment as a guarantee of interoperability.

ACULA is poised to market an HDcctv-compliant receiver/repeater specially designed for video surveillance and monitoring systems requiring superior quality and performance. This product receives the digital video signal with a resolution up to 1080p through traditional coaxial cables. The received signal is converted to an HMDI or VGA signal that can display the high quality image on a conventional HD monitor. In the near future, ACULA will design an HDcctv-compliant built-in receiver for large size monitors and also introduce HDcctv-compliant monitors.

“ACULA has an especially strong reputation as a Taiwan-based monitor manufacturer. With HDcctv repeater and display offerings, ACULA brings a unique product focus to the Alliance,” said Todd Rockoff, HDcctv Alliance executive director. “ACULA’s move to take early advantage of the opportunity in the HDcctv repeater market suggests how quickly the full spectrum of required HDcctv products will be filled out by this nascent industry. We look forward to ACULA partnering with other Alliance members to present complete solutions to end buyers.”

The HDcctv Alliance has partnered with SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) to leverage the HD-SDI (High-Definition Serial Digital Interface) broadcast television standard as the basis for the HDcctv Specification.

HDcctv Alliance Ratifies Compliance Certification Process To Enable Video Surveillance Products to Display HDcctv Logo











HDcctv Logo: Look for this logo on HDcctv Alliance products


Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) September 22, 2010

The HDcctv Alliance™, the global security industry consortium established to manage and promulgate technical standards for HDcctv equipment interoperability, announced today that it has ratified the HDcctv compliance certification program. The certification program consists of a suite of standards documents that describe the requirements, methodology, compliance test process and test specifications that HDcctv product manufacturers must follow to apply for a certificate of compliance. Obtaining a certificate of compliance qualifies an HDcctv product to bear the unique HDcctv logo indicating interoperability per version 1.0 of the HDcctv standard. Compliant products are included in the Compliant Products List maintained by the Alliance on its website (http://www.highdefcctv.org/). HDcctv-compliant cameras, DVRs, IP streamers, monitors, and other products are expected to be added to the Compliant Products List in Q4 2010.

“The delivery of the HDcctv Alliance Compliance Test program is a major milestone for the industry. In little over a year, the HDcctv Alliance has developed a comprehensive standard that provides an easy to use and install, all-digital, high-resolution, high-definition video interface to the CCTV industry. The addition of a practical method to prove compliance to this standard ensures that any interconnected HDcctv-compliant products are guaranteed to interoperate,” explained John Hudson, HDcctv Alliance Technical committee Chair.

“HDcctv cameras replace analog cameras as easy resolution upgrades for CCTV systems. Meanwhile HDcctv cameras, coupled with single-channel IP encoders, are an alternative to megapixel IP cameras: the HDcctv solution allows nearly any CCTV camera location to be converted easily to provide a megapixel IP video feed,” added Todd Rockoff, HDcctv Alliance executive director. “With HDcctv, there is no need to extend the LAN all the way out to the camera mounting location: Simply replace the camera, connect the encoder near the DVR, and megapixel IP video is streaming on the LAN”, Dr. Rockoff elaborated.

“As a result of these expected advantages of HDcctv cameras, anticipation has been building in the end market for HDcctv-compliant products: People want to know when they can get them. With the finalization of the compliance certification process and the establishment of the first of many planned independent HDcctv Compliance Test facilities, there is now a practical way for Alliance members to certify their products and display the HDcctv logo as a guarantee of interoperability” concluded Dr. Rockoff.

The version 1.1 HDcctv compliance certification standard specifies procedures, tools and criteria for testing the compliance of devices to the physical and electrical requirements of the version 1.0 HDcctv specification. Each individual test is designed to guarantee compliance with one or more of the v1.0 requirements; taken together, the tests ensure that the candidate product complies with the v1.0 HDcctv standard and ensures interoperability with other HDcctv-compliant products.

The compliance certification standard is an integral part of the HDcctv trademarks licensing program. The program is designed to ensure a specific level of interoperability such that end customers’ interoperability expectations are met by all equipment bearing the unique HDcctv logo. All HDcctv products bearing this logo have demonstrated compliance to the v1.0 HDcctv specification, which assures that the end buyer can successfully mix-and-match HDcctv products from diverse manufacturers.

By delivering all-digital high-resolution video, HDcctv cameras are an alternative to CCTV cameras, whose resolution is limited, and to megapixel IP video cameras, whose adoption has been impeded by issues of cost, complexity, and image degradation due to compression prior to transmission over IP networks. The HDcctv standard enables HDcctv cameras to seamlessly interoperate with HDcctv DVRs, HDcctv IP streamers, HDcctv monitors, and other types of HDcctv products. The HDcctv interface delivers the highest possible signal integrity, without any perceivable latency or image artifacts from transmission-related compression or transmission packet loss.

The HDcctv Alliance has partnered with SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) to leverage the HD-SDI (High Definition Serial Digital Interface) broadcast television standard as the basis for the HDcctv Specification. The HDcctv standard is planned to include a variety of enhancements to HD-SDI that are vital to surveillance, including bi-directional audio and data, up-the-cable power, and Long Reach Mode for 300m transmission over conventional RG-59 cable.    

The Alliance is growing rapidly, drawing its international membership from diverse sectors of the security industry, from component, OEM and branded equipment manufacturers, to security sales, support and system installers.
