Dahua announces strategic agreement with Exar to license HDCVI technology
Exar is licensed to design, manufacture and sell high-definition analogue video solutions utilising HDCVI technology.
Dahua has made HDCVI available as a global standard, providing open access for any third party, 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 and quicker market acceptance.
Zhu Jiangming, Executive Vice President at Dahua, pointed that since HDCVI is now a global standard instead of just another proprietary, sole-source analogue HD solution, Dahua is even more confident about HDCVI’s long-term prospects.
Louis DiNardo, President and CEO of Exar Corporation, comments that “By upgrading analogue 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.”
Todd Rockoff, HDcctv Alliance Executive Director, said: “Specialised 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 Plug ‘n’ Play value for end users while simultaneously creating efficiencies for equipment manufacturers and distributors.”
