About the Alliance

The HDcctv Alliance® is the non-profit industry association that develops, manages, and promulgates the technical interface specification for high-definition closed-circuit television (HDcctv). 

The HDcctv standard is tuned to meet the needs of surveillance. The HDcctv 1.0 standard adds security-specific capabilities and 100% multi-vendor interoperability to standards adopted by the broadcast industry for digital serial transmission of uncompressed HDTV signals over coaxial cable.  Beyond HDcctv 1.0, planned versions of the HDcctv standard provide new capabilities and allow for transmitting HDTV signals over various media, including optical fiber and Cat5.  

The Alliance promotes adoption of HDcctv-compliant products and provides education throughout the surveillance equipment industry. Only HDcctv-compliant products bear the distinctive HDcctv compliance mark that is the manufacturer's guarantee of electrical transmission and interoperability with other manufacturers' HDcctv-compliant products.  

The Alliance also plans to offer an HDcctv Certificate that may be earned by video surveillance system designers, installers, and dealers through an education program.

HDcctv Alliance Limited is an Australian Public Company Limited by Guarantee.

Australian Company Number 137 548 862.
