Dahua provides open access to HDCVI technology for HDcctv AT 2.0 implementers

ZheJiang Dahua Technology Co has opened its patented HDCVI technology – the basis for the HDcctv AT 2.0 standard – to the global video surveillance sector through an HDcctv Alliance Member Intellectual Property Agreement.

First introduced in late 2012, HDCVI technology transmits HDTV signals over any legacy CCTV cabling infrastructure. The HDcctv Alliance ratified HDcctv AT 2.0 in February 2014. HDcctv AT 2.0 compliance ensures 100% plug-and-play remote control of any camera from any compliant DVR, no matter the manufacturer.

“Dahua developed HDCVI technology to help our growing customer base enjoy more of the benefits of HD IP surveillance,” said Zhu Jiangming, Dahua’s executive vice-president and the principal inventor of the seminal HDCVI patents. “We recognise that customers want their equipment to be 100% multi-vendor plug-and-play, rather than using single-source, proprietary solutions that may not work together. On that basis, Dahua’s strategy is aimed at maximising the return on investment in HDCVI and, in doing so, making the technology readily available to other manufacturers – even our direct competitors.”

Jianming continued: “For these reasons, Dahua has decided to issue licenses under RAND (reasonable and non-discriminatory) terms to other reciprocating Steering and Manufacturing Members of the HDcctv Alliance. Dahua’s policy is as follows. Semiconductor manufacturers implementing the HDcctv AT 2.0 standard independently are asked to pay a license fee on a RAND basis, while HDCVI licenses for implementing the HDcctv AT 2.0 standard are open free of charge to authorised equipment makers as per the HDcctv Alliance Members IP Agreement of which Dahua is a signatory. We look forward to collaborating with our partners in the HDcctv Alliance and further accelerating the global migration to HD IP surveillance.”

Complete compliance certification regime

Todd Rockoff, executive director of the HDcctv Alliance, commented: “HDCVI has a multi-year head start over all other analogue HD video surveillance solutions. It’s the only solution available as a global standard with a complete compliance certification regime. While other semiconductor manufacturers are racing to catch up to the analogue HD surveillance transmission market opened by HDCVI, each of these other solutions is proprietary to just one manufacturer.”

Rockoff continued: “Never before has a sole-source, proprietary transmission solution gained prevalence in the surveillance industry. Out-of-the-box plug-and-play remote control over legacy CCTV infrastructure is a compelling convenience for the installers and operators of HD surveillance systems. Therefore, HDcctv AT 2.0 and its successors, all based on HDCVI, appear to be the most likely to succeed among the various analogue transmission solutions in development.”

“There’s no doubt that the security market is moving quickly towards HD surveillance,” said Dr Jon Hwang, CEO of the Eyenix Corporation. “As an Image Signal Processor (ISP) vendor, Eyenix will implement whatever local site transport technologies our customers need. To manage our design cost for any given technology, it’s important we have a global standard that eliminates uncertainty.”

“We support the global standard for HD surveillance local site transport,” said Young-Jun Yoo, Nextchip’s strategic marketing director. “In the long term, Nextchip recognises the importance of all vendors supporting a single global standard.”
