Acula Joins the HDcctv Alliance

HDcctv Alliance : 02 June, 2010  (Company News)
Receiver, repeater and monitor manufacturer supports the development of technical standards by joining the HDcctv Alliance
HDcctv Alliance, the global security industry consortium established to manage and promote technical standards for HDcctv equipment interoperability, has announced that Acula, a video industry OEM/ODM specialist since 1993 and world-class provider of CCTV video products, will join the Alliance with plans to market an HDcctv-compliant receiver/repeater.

HDcctv surveillance cameras deliver digital high definition video over coaxial cable. The HDcctv Alliance standards enable interoperable plug-and-play high definition (HD) security systems with the highest possible signal integrity, without any perceivable compression latency and no transmission delays or image artifacts from transmission-related compression.

Acula has joined the Alliance, recognizing the value of delivering HD video to the surveillance market over existing cable infrastructure and the importance of participating in a standards body for interoperability to maximize its opportunities in this new product category.

"The resolution of the composite video signal employed by the security industry for more than five decades is too low for the modern world of surveillance. We need clearer, higher quality video," said Louis Jean, president of Acula Technology. "HDcctv meets the needs to deliver high definition surveillance video while making it easy to replace old equipment using the existing cable infrastructure. HDcctv will become popular in the video surveillance industry."

"The HDcctv Alliance provides lots of useful information, specification and details about the HDcctv standard. We can just follow the specification without spending time and money to define another one," noted Louis Jean. "We also would like to work and cooperate closely with other members, share experiences with each other and let the end-users know that HDcctv systems offer more benefits than network camera based systems."

HDcctv Alliance member companies have access to complete HDcctv specifications and are licensed to use the HDcctv logo on compliant equipment as a guarantee of interoperability.

Acula is poised to market an HDcctv-compliant receiver/repeater specially designed for video surveillance and monitoring systems requiring superior quality and performance. This product receives the Digital Video signal with a resolution up to 1080p through traditional coaxial cables. The received signal is converted to an HMDI or VGA signal that can display the high quality image on a conventional HD monitor. In the near future, Acula will design an HDcctv-compliant built-in receiver for large size monitors and also introduce HDcctv-compliant monitors.

"Acula has an especially strong reputation as a Taiwan-based monitor manufacturer. With HDcctv repeater and display offerings, Acula brings a unique product focus to the Alliance," said Todd Rockoff, HDcctv Alliance executive director. 'Acula's move to take early advantage of the opportunity in the HDcctv repeater market suggests how quickly the full spectrum of required HDcctv products will be filled out by this nascent industry. We look forward to Acula partnering with other Alliance members to present complete solutions to end buyers.'

The HDcctv Alliance has partnered with SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) to leverage the HD-SDI (High-Definition 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 bi-directional audio and data, up-the-cable power, and Long Reach Mode for 300m transmission over conventional RG-59 cable.

The Alliance is rapidly growing its international membership to include a diverse array of security industry participants, from component, OEM and branded equipment manufacturers, to security sales, support and system installers. Alliance members benefit from access to the specification, participation in the standard creation process, and certification of compliant products.
