Voting members of the HDcctv Alliance have formally ratified is close to announcing formal approval of Version 1.0 of a standard for transmitting 780p and 1080p video signals uncompressed and unpacketized over coaxial or twisted pair. HDcctv is being positioned as an alternative to IP megapixel cameras in that it can offer users with a large amount of analog equipment and cabling infrastructure an economical path to HD resolution.

The HDcctv v1.0 Specification is an open standard that accommodates the growing broad adoption of HD video formats by both surveillance equipment manufacturers and security service providers. The specification defines the requirements for a flexible system and apparatus capable of creating, transporting, distributing, recording and displaying HDcctv video and metadata. The specification also defines external box-to-box digital interfaces with optional audio, metadata and data capability for application for video surveillance devices.

The alliance has been gaining traction since its formation last March, growing to 17 members from its original four and signing a license agreement with the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) to freely incorporate portions of SMPTE's broadcast HD-SDI specification into the HDcctv standard. In addition, alliance member Stretch Inc. has begun supplying HDcctv-compliant PCI express cards for DVRs.

In the embedded video, Todd Rockoff, HDcctv chairman, discusses the benefits of the standards and offers a demonstration of its functionality.
