Exar-Dahua HDCVI Tie-Up to Slash Costs of Installing HD Cameras

hdcviExar Corporation and Dahua have forged a strategic tie-up to license High Definition Composite Video Interface (HDCVI) technology.

The advent of HDCVI means control room operators now have access to HD video in an analogue format suitable for transmission over existing coaxial cable infrastructure.

As per the new agreement, Exar is licenced to design, manufacture and sell analogue high-definition video solutions using HDCVI technology.

High Definition (HD) video is driving huge demand in video surveillance industry and will soon be available in industry’s standard analogue format.

Louis DiNardo, president and CEO of Exar Corporation, says 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.”

Zhu JiangMing, executive vice president of Dahua and inventor of the original HDCVI patents, says: “We greatly respect Exar as a merchant semiconductor manufacturer and welcome Exar to join Dahua in serving the booming global demand for HDCVI semiconductors. The execution of this license agreement is an important step in HDCVI becoming an open, global standard.”

In addition to the strategic license agreement, 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 a certain level of performance specifications  and interoperability with other products that adhere to the HDCVI standard.

Exar’s first HDCVI product, a 1080P camera module, will be showcased this month to select customers. The company will continue to develop and expand its portfolio of high-definition camera and video recorder products with a 4-channel PCIe DVR card as well as component-level video processors for transmitting and receiving HDCVI video in the following calendar quarter.
