During the recent ISC West exhibition at Las Vegas three large firms announced they were joining forces to push hybrid IP-based security systems for the CCTV market. The three companies are Intersil Corporation, Sony Corporation and Altronix, Inc.
According to Instat’s 2011 report, video surveillance equipment revenue will approach $15 billion in 2014, and the market is expected to rapidly move to IP and HD cameras. The firms say that the IP camera market growth hinges on providing a solution that reduces video latency and can use the existing cable infrastructure.
“Intersil’s SLOC technology is instrumental in the development of hybrid IP video surveillance solutions while providing a high level of value for customers,” said Susan Hardman, Senior Vice President of Intersil’s Analogue and Mixed Signal Group. “We believe the future is bright for the security surveillance market and the rapid pace of growth will continue.”
“Hybrid IP solutions enable us to offer a new level of innovation to our customers by bringing Full HD and HD IP solutions to existing analogue SD infrastructure,” said Takashi Honda, Senior General Manager, Visual Security Solution business division at Sony Corporation. “Additionally, hybrid video technology is setting a new standard for performance in the security industry and strongly contributing to the overall transformation of the market.”
“Altronix maintains its focus on providing innovative solutions that support the latest industry trends in IP surveillance deployment,” said Alan Forman, President, Altronix Corp. “The development of our eBridge™ series Ethernet over Coax Adapters incorporating Intersil SLOC technology provide extremely cost-efficient upgrades from analog to IP migration onto a network platform by repurposing legacy coax infrastructure.”
