HDcctv Alliance, the global security industry consortium established to manage technical standards for HDcctv equipment interoperability, announced that China Security & Surveillance Technology, Inc. (CSST), a provider of surveillance technology, has joined the alliance as the only charter voting member in the People's Republic of China.
The aim of the alliance is to guide standardization efforts and promotion of HDcctv. HDcctv-based systems transmit HDTV signals digitally over conventional CCTV media without packetization and without any perceivable compression latency.
"CSST recognized uncompressed, non-packetized HD as a strategic technology in 2007 and has been working on it ever since," said Zhou Yuesheng, President of CSST Product. "As a charter voting member in the HDcctv Alliance, we will take full advantage of the opportunity to bring HDcctv technology to the market." CSST's Product is comprised of six subsidiaries: HTS (CCTV cameras), Stonesonic (LCD monitors), Minking (Speed Domes), Higheasy (DVRs), Longhorn (Anti-Intrusion Alarms) and Coson (Access Controls).
"With one of the manufacturing bases for surveillance equipment, CSST's commitment to HDcctv will make the full range of HDcctv-compliant products available," said Todd E. Rockoff, Ph.D., Chairman of HDcctv Alliance. "CSST is a valued charter member of the HDcctv Alliance. As China's security company, CSST is also well positioned to introduce HDcctv to the rapidly growing end market in China."
