HDCCTV Alliance details
For those of you wondering about this amorphous HDCCTV Alliance, check out my full story here. I've known about this stuff for a couple weeks, but I was honoring an embargo until they got their web site ready and the specification posted. You can find further information at their web site. Since this is the blog, I'll say that some of this HDCCTV stuff does sound attractive. Certainly, if the picture is as good as they say it is for live viewing, people are going to dig that. I've yet to see something on a show floor that's as good as a high-def TV viewing experience, and they say they can deliver that. End users will eat that up. And for upgrading a current analog system to HD or "megapixel" capability without having to rewire? That does seem like a no-brainer in some instances. As long as the DVR is still addressable, there are a lot of places were an IP camera would just be overkill if you could get two megapixels with analog. It's going to be interesting to see how this shakes out.
