Certification will ensure that all HDCVI products with a certification label are compatible with each other
The HDcctv Alliance is announcing a new global standard of HD analogue — HDCVI 2.0. HDCVI 2.0 is based on Dahua’s HDCVI technology. The standard aims to provide a stringent level of certification among manufacturers. Certification will ensure that all HDCVI products with certification label are completely compatible with each other. This gives users complete freedom of choice for security equipment using different brands.
As the HDCVI technology inventor and patent owner, Dahua introduced the milestones of the HDCVI development. This process has now taken the proprietary technology to a global open standard. Dahua provides open access for any third part, including competing manufactures, 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.
As a steering committee member of the Alliance, Dahua has come to appreciate that the HDCVI technology has been recognised as a global standard in the industry. “Since our HDCVI technology was released in 2012, the technology has attracted great attention not only in China but around the globe,” said Henry Zhang, Vice President at Dahua Technology. “HDCVI is now a global standard instead of being merely one of HD analogue solutions in the industry.”
At the press conference held during the Security China Exhibition in Beijing, Alliance member, Shany Electronics showcased their latest WDR camera with PoC function based on the HDCVI technology. “Shany has been providing products and solutions in the security industry for more than 20 years,” said Danny Tang, Deputy General Manager at Shany Electronics. “With our experience in analogue cameras, we have cutting edge functionality and R&D ability to provide different HDCVI cameras for our customers. For example, true WDR, Auto Defog, LSC, 2D/32D DNR and PoC function and HDCVI has now been proven both in terms of image quality and product stability. It provides us with a great foundation to differentiate our products in an increasingly crowded market. Outside of HD also offer other unique features,” Tang added.
HDCVI 2.0 is just taking off among Alliance members. “Speaking of certification, the Alliance will play a more important role to test products and issue the compliant mark to HDCVI product suppliers,” said Todd Rockoff, Chairman of HDcctv Alliance.
Rockoff pointed out that the Alliance administers the compliant marks, including HDCVI 1.0, HDCVI 2.0 as well as HDCVI 3.0-the next step which is expected within the next 12 months. “Only Alliance member products that pass the applicable certifications can display the marks on their products or boxes. With these compliance marks, people can easily recognise product compatibility and make sure their product selection works seamlessly from end-to-end.”
