HDcctv Alliance to Show Visitors the Future Pathway for Analog HD Video

At ISC West 2015, security video standards organization, the HDcctv Alliance, will show visitors that the HDCVI 2.0 standard facilitates migration to 720p/1080p surveillance – and beyond.

HDcctv Alliance executive director Todd Rockoff said 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. 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, who will feature on the Alliance’s booth, alongside surveillance equipment manufacturer, Dahua, and fast-growing American security brand Gen IV.

Tim Shen, director of overseas marketing at Dahua, said, “Dahua is delighted to participate in the HDcctv Gallery at ISC West 2015. As more and more semiconductor manufacturers adopt the technology, it is increasingly clear that the HDCVI 2.0 standard is the security industry's only real choice for analogue HD local-site transport.”

Colin Earle, senior director, product marketing at Exar, said, “ISC West is an outstanding venue to demonstrate Exar’s prowess as a mixed-signal semiconductor company focused on the video surveillance vertical market segment. Our latest HDCVI offerings at both ends of the cable enable our customers to upgrade to true HD video at distances over 500m for their existing coax installed-base.”

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. We’re pleased to return as sponsors of the Alliance ISC West demonstration, and we increasingly value our role as Manufacturing Members of the Alliance.”

Also exhibiting on the Alliance booth will be coaxial connectivity products manufacturer Telecom & Security.

Giovanni Pugliese, CEO of Telecom & Security, said, “At ISC West we will introduce our brand new BNC connector, the ideal solution for the new 1080p HD analogue cameras. All our connectors work with our patented CaP System technology: one quick, easy and reusable connector for any cable size. CaP System yields optimum results for HDCVI 2.0 transmission.”

The HDcctv Alliance membership list is growing fast. Find out who is developing HDCVI 2.0-compliant equipment by visiting.

At ISC West 2015 the HDcctv Alliance will be exhibiting on Booth 4116, where visitors are encouraged to meet Alliance members, see the latest technology in operation, and discover more about the benefits of HDCVI 2.0.

    I’m a recovering alcoholic, ten years sober this June. I almost wrote “recovered alcoholic,” because it’s a problem I’ve long since put to bed in every practical sense. But anyone who’s dealt with addiction knows that that part of your brain never goes away. You just learn to tell the difference between that insidious voice in your head and your actual internal monologue, and you get better at telling the other guy to shut up. Read Now

    My first security trade show was in 2021. At the time, I was awed by the sheer magnitude of the event and the spectacle of products on display. But this was the first major trade show coming out of the pandemic, and the only commentary I heard was how low the attendance was. Two representatives from one booth even spent the last morning playing catch in the aisle with their giveaway stress balls. Read Now
