FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Exar Corporation (NYSE: EXAR), a leading supplier of high-performance integrated circuits and system solutions, today announces the signing of a strategic agreement with Dahua to license High Definition Composite Video Interface (HDCVI) technology. Under the terms of the new agreement, Exar is licensed to design, manufacture and sell analog high-definition video solutions utilizing HDCVI technology.
High Definition (HD) video is driving tremendous growth in the video surveillance industry but was not available in an industry standard analog format until recently. With the advent of HDCVI, video surveillance professionals now have access to HD video in an analog format suitable for transmission over existing coaxial cable infrastructure. Louis DiNardo, President and CEO of Exar Corporation, comments that "By upgrading analog cameras and video recorders to HDCVI at sites where coax has already been pulled, customers can now enjoy all the benefits of a high-definition video with a very modest investment. HDCVI technology enables transmission of HD video at distances over 500 meters on standard coaxial cable."
Exar joins Dahua to champion HDCVI technology in establishing the industry standard for HD analog video surveillance. Zhu JiangMing, Executive Vice President of Dahua and inventor of the original HDCVI patents, said "We greatly respect Exar as a merchant semiconductor manufacturer and welcome Exar to join Dahua in serving the booming global demand for HDCVI semiconductors. The execution of this license agreement is an important step in HDCVI becoming an open, global standard". In addition to the strategic license agreement, both companies are members of the HDcctv Alliance which promotes adoption of and adherence to the HDCVI standard. Exar HDCVI products are fully compliant with the HDCVI 2.0 standard, ensuring performance specifications and interoperability with other products that adhere to the HDCVI standard.
Exar's first HDCVI product, a 1080P camera module, will be demonstrated this month to select customers. The company will continue to develop and expand its portfolio of high-definition camera and video recorder products with a 4-channel PCIe DVR card as well as component-level video processors for transmitting and receiving HDCVI video in the following calendar quarter.
Exar Corporation designs, develops and markets high performance integrated circuits and system solutions for the industrial and embedded systems communications, high-end consumer and infrastructure markets. Exar's broad product portfolio includes analog, display, LED lighting, mixed-signal, power management, connectivity, data management and video processing solutions.
