Share Article

HDcctv Alliance is set to turn HD surveillance industry on its head at the upcoming ASIS trade show in Orlando, Florida. The company today revealed the capabilities in the upcoming V2.0 HDcctv standard.

HDcctv Alliance®, the trade association managing the electrical interface standard for HD surveillance, today revealed the detailed set of capabilities in the upcoming V2.0 HDcctv standard that are added to the capabilities defined in the V1.0 HDcctv standard.

As security professionals turn to 720p and 1080p high-definition surveillance, there is only one guaranteed 100% interoperable video interface standard: HDcctv. The HDcctv standard, first ratified in 2009, today delivers ultra-detailed, real-time, uncompressed HD video over standard coaxial cable. The HDcctv standard continues to evolve to meet the needs and requirements of the video surveillance equipment industry. The V2.0 HDcctv capabilities have now been finalized, and the V2.0 HDcctv standard is on track for ratification in 2011.

“V2.0 HDcctv facilitates the surveillance industry’s transition to HD surveillance,” commented Todd Rockoff, executive director of HDcctv Alliance. “Because so many more existing surveillance cameras can now be upgraded to HDcctv without pulling any new cable, V2.0 HDcctv presents a tremendous savings in labour time and material cost to the security installer. Moreover,” he continued, “the enormous bandwidth of HDcctv interfaces enables the highest-quality HD full-motion real-time live views to be delivered, thereby enabling both the highest-quality forensic evidence to be stored on HDcctv-compliant DVRs and also delivering the live viewing performance that experienced surveillance professionals have come to expect.”

V2.0 HDcctv delivers eXtended Reach™ transmission (XR™ mode) and is planned for ratification by the end of 2011. With V1.0 HDcctv-compliant equipment already transmitting video over runs of longer than 150 meters of RG59 coaxial cable, XR mode more than doubles the transmission distance: V2.0 HDcctv achieves greater than 300-meter transmission over conventional RG59 coaxial cable, approximately 40 meters over aged or poor-quality coaxial cable and terminations, and better than 100 meters over UTP cable.

“EverFocus is experiencing real growth in this product category, and we expect a substantial portion of our revenues to be attributed to HDcctv going forward,” said Michael Kimball, corporate vice president of product and solution development, EverFocus. “Furthermore, because we now have a wide range of accessories, EverFocus is positioned to address a broad range of applications, including enterprise-class multi-site projects. The fundamental value propositions — ease of installation and unsurpassed clarity — have absolutely been validated by the market. EverFocus is among the first companies to move into the second generation of products, all of which will be V2.0 HDcctv compliant,” he concluded.
