Security China 2014: first looks at 2nd-generation HDcctv-compliant equipment and 3rd-generation technologies
Surveillance video standards organisation the HDcctv Alliance will host a technology and product Gallery at Security China 2014, in Beijing October 28-31. The first certified HDcctv 2.0-compliant products will be shown by Dahua and Shany. Intersil and Semtech will demonstrate long-reach solutions considered for the HDcctv DT 3.0 standard.
The HDcctv 2.0 standards - ratified in February 2014 - have been developed and agreed for HD surveillance equipment designed to deliver high-fidelity HD video within secured buildings. The specialized HD transport solutions codified by the HDcctv standards deliver significant advantages in surveillance applications, with 100% multi-vendor plug 'n' play (PnP) capabilities, including control over cable.
HDCVI 2.0 (previously known as HDcctv AT 2.0) equipment delivers HDTV signals over any legacy CCTV coaxial cabling, along with PnP remote control capability, while HDcctv DT 2.0 (Digital Technology) equipment adds PnP remote control up-the-coax to the underlying bit-perfect HDcctv 1.0 format.
