| 1 Comment | 0 TrackBacks
The HDcctv Alliance scored a license agreement with the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) to freely incorporate portions of SMPTE's HD-SDI specification into the HDcctv standard under development, Todd Rockoff, HDcctv executive director, told Security Squared Tuesday.

The HDcctv Alliance is developing a standard that will allow HD signals to travel over coaxial and twisted pair cable. The organization has a booth at ASIS International where it is spotlighting the efforts of its membership, which has grown to 12 from its original founding four. Alliance member Stretch Inc., an OEM supplier of DVR chips and components, introduced the first HDcctv PCIexpress card in July and is aiming to begin shipments in January.

The SMPTE agreement is essentially a broadcast industry endorsement of the HDcctv specification, which itself grew out of broadcast HDTV engineering. The HD-SDI spec is formally known as SMPTE 292M, and defines a serial digital interface based on coaxial cable, for transport of uncompressed digital video and audio in a television studio environment. The license gives the HDcctv Alliance members permission to adapt elements of the standard into the HDcctv spec, Rockoff said.
