Dahua Technology, a world-leading manufacturer and supplier of video surveillance products headquartered in Hangzhou, China announces the signing of a strategic agreement with Exar to license High Definition Composite Video Interface (HDCVI) technology. Under the terms of the new agreement, Exar will be able to design, manufacture, and sell high-definition analog video solutions utilizing HDCVI technology as licensed from Dahua.
As the HDCVI technology inventor and patent owner, Dahua has made it as a global open standard, providing open access for any third part, including competing manufacturers, to use HDCVI.
Partnering with the HDcctv Alliance allows manufacturers to better collaborate on implementation of HDCVI 2.0 technology – carving the path for wider market acceptance.
Zhu Jiangming, Executive Vice President at Dahua Technology, pointed out that since HDCVI is now a global standard instead of being merely one of various HD analog solutions in the industry, Dahua is even more confident about CVI’s prospect.
Louis DiNardo, President and CEO of Exar Corporation, comments that “By upgrading analog cameras and video recorders to HDCVI at sites where coax has already been pulled, customers can now enjoy all the benefits of a high-definition video with a very modest investment. HDCVI technology enables transmission of HD video at distances over 500 meters on standard coaxial cable.”
Exar joins Dahua to champion HDCVI technology in establishing the industry standard for HD analog video surveillance.
Both companies are members of the HDcctv Alliance which promotes adoption of and adherence to the HDCVI standard.
Exar HDCVI products are fully compliant with the HDCVI 2.0 standard, ensuring performance specifications and interoperability with other products that adhere to the HDCVI standard.
Exar’s first HDCVI product, a 1080P camera module, will be demonstrated this month.
Todd Rockoff, HDcctv Alliance Executive Director, said: “Specialized HD local-site transport solutions have made HD surveillance as reliable, as convenient, and as affordable as sub-HD surveillance. This license agreement between Dahua and Exar opens a new chapter for analogue HD transport: Equipment makers will soon have a choice of suppliers for HDCVI 2.0-ready components. Exar’s and Dahua’s mutual commitment to the HDCVI standards creates value for end users: It drives multi-vendor Plug ‘n’ Play while simultaneously creating efficiencies for both equipment manufacturers and their customers.”Source: dahuasecurity.com
