HDcctv Alliance, the global security industry consortium established to manage and promote technical standards for HDcctv equipment interoperability, announced that TEB, a French designer, manufacturer and integrator of video surveillance solutions, has joined the Alliance to develop and market a complete range of HDcctv-compliant products.
HDcctv surveillance camera connection technology presents an alternative to analog video, which offers limited resolution, and IP networking, whose adoption is impeded by cost, complexity, and degraded quality of live view images. HDcctv surveillance cameras deliver digital HD video over coaxial cable. The HDcctv Alliance standards enable interoperable plug-and-play HD security systems with the highest possible signal integrity, without any perceivable latency or image artifacts from transmission-related compression.
“TEB joined the HDcctv Alliance because we believe in applying HD technology to surveillance applications so our customers can benefit from the high-resolution, quality images HD offers,” said Matthieu Thaller, TEB Marketing Director. “Working with the alliance, we can help our customers understand this new technology and establish credibility for HD in the surveillance market. The image is the most important component of our business, and to that end we invest in and support technologies that improve video quality and create more efficient systems for the end-user. Our participation in the HDcctv Alliance allows us do this.”
“The HDcctv Alliance provides us with interoperability specifications and SMPTE-derived HD standards as they apply to the video surveillance market. We can use those specifications and standards to design and develop a complete range of HDcctv-compliant products for our global customers,” Thaller said. “TEB plans to deliver HDcctv-compliant PTZ, static, and dome cameras and DVR management software.”
The HDcctv Alliance has partnered with Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers to leverage the HD Serial Digital Interface broadcast television standard as the basis for the HDcctv Specification. HDcctv includes a variety of enhancements to HD-SDI that are vital to surveillance, including bidirectional audio and data, up-the-cable power, and long reach mode for 300-meter transmission over conventional RG-59 cable.
“TEB has carved out a unique place in the market by developing innovative products in response to their customers' specific requirements,” said Todd Rockoff, HDcctv Alliance Executive Director. “We look forward to TEB bringing its end-user-oriented perspective to the development of the HDcctv standard, broadening the product options available to end users that want to take advantage of HDcctv camera connection technology.”
