Euresys Joins HDcctv Alliance to Meet Market Demand for Digital High-definition Television in Video Surveillance Systems

The HDcctv Alliance™, the global security industry consortium established to manage and promulgate technical standards for HDcctv™ equipment interoperability, announced today that Euresys, a leader in the field of image acquisition and analytics for machine vision systems, has joined the Alliance. Euresys offers a complete range of innovative and high-performance image acquisition sub-systems for high-end video surveillance and industrial machine vision applications, as well as robust and powerful image analysis software tools for industrial machine vision.

“Joining the HDcctv Alliance is in line with our business strategy to incorporate high-definition video into our surveillance products,” said Marc Damhaut, Euresys senior vice president of product management. “Euresys has 20 years experience in the design of video acquisition processing cards and systems for machine vision, medical and video surveillance applications. In the video surveillance market, we focus on mid- to high-end applications that require high-quality, high frame rate, and high-resolution images. We naturally view HDcctv as the next step to moving towards high-definition video."

“The addition of Euresys to the HDcctv Alliance increases our presence in Europe. Euresys brings a strong engineering pedigree to the Alliance, having participated in the creation of a variety of technically advanced standards,” noted Todd Rockoff, HDcctv Alliance executive director. “Moreover, Euresys manufactures high-end video surveillance equipment, and we look forward to them working in partnership with other Alliance members to deliver video surveillance systems that take best advantage of HDcctv cameras.”

HDcctv cameras are an alternative to CCTV cameras, which offer limited resolution. HDcctv cameras digitally deliver much higher resolution than CCTV cameras, at only a modest price premium, using conventional coaxial cable. HDcctv cameras are also a good alternative to IP video cameras, whose adoption has been impeded by issues of cost, complexity, and the degradation of live video due to its being compressed prior to transmission over IP networks (which also tend to drop packets, further degrading the video). The HDcctv standard enables cameras that deliver HDTV in video surveillance systems to easily interoperate with HDcctv DVRs, HDcctv IP streamers, HDcctv monitors, and other types of HDcctv products. HDcctv interfaces deliver the highest possible signal integrity, without any perceivable latency or image artifacts from transmission-related compression or IP network 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. Alliance members benefit from access to the complete specification, participation in the standard creation process, and certification of compliant products. Marketing benefits include access to the HDcctv logo as a product brand signifying interoperability, as well as promotions to increase members’ international visibility. Information about the Alliance is available at www.highdefcctv.org, and membership registration information can be obtained by emailing membership@highdefcctv.org.
