|Dahua has made HDCVI a global standard, providing open access for any third party to use HDCVI|
Dahua Technology, a world-leading manufacturer and supplier of video surveillance products headquartered in Hangzhou, China announces the signing of a strategic agreement with Exar to license High Definition Composite Video Interface (HDCVI) technology. Under the terms of the new agreement, Exar is licensed to design, manufacture and sell high-definition analogue video solutions utilising HDCVI technology.
As the HDCVI technology inventor and patent owner, Dahua has made it as a global open 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 Technology, pointed that since HDCVI is now a global standard instead of being merely one of various HD analogue solutions in the industry, Dahua is even more confident about CVI’s prospect. Partnering with Exar is another good example to show our open mind and strong determination.
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.”

Exar joins Dahua to champion HDCVI technology in establishing the industry standard for HD analogue video surveillance. 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 performance specifications and interoperability with other products that adhere to the HDCVI standard. Exar’s first HDCVI product, a 1080P camera module, will be demonstrated this month.
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 value for end users: It drives multi-vendor Plug ‘n’ Play while simultaneously creating efficiencies for both equipment manufacturers and their customers.”
