Zhang stated that Dahua plan to be an “active Steering Member” to drive both the marketing and technical agendas of the HDcctv Alliance. Dahua will now begin the process of getting all of its products certified as compliant with the HDcctv standard.

“We look forward to beginning to certify our products as compliant with the HDcctv standard,” said Zhang, “ That will ensure that electrical performance meets customers’ expectations and, more importantly, that our HDcctv-compliant products are 100 per cent out-of-the-box plug and play with HDcctv-compliant products from other manufacturers.”

The HDcctv Alliance develops and manages the HDcctv video interface standard, with compliant products bearing a mark to guarantee electrical transmission characteristics and interoperability with other HDcctv-compliant products.

Todd Rockoff, executive director of HDcctv Alliance, said the addition of Dahua will “contribute greatly” to the HDcctv standard and its standing as a Steering Member will help to “accelerate the worldwide migration to HD surveillance”.
