Never heard of them, but wow do they cover the whole range of technologies: AHD, HD-SDI, HD-TVI, IP, 960H, analog, etc. It sure seems like they don't want to miss any tech trends.
Maybe the Ambarella chips are shipping. John does say right in the article that "It will likely take 2 to 3 years for broad adoption, though early product pre-announcements will likely come next year." I imagine we will see a lot of soft product launches come ISC West.
Maybe the same as TVT-Digital, mentioned here?
It's a Chinese company based on Shenzhen.
H.265 is not a brand-new tag for surveilliance cameras in China. There are many companies demonstrated their H.265 products in the CPSE last year.
Ambarella's chip comes to market much later than Hisilicon's. Hisilicon's 3516A is capable of performing 1080p H.265 encoding in real-time.
They are a manufacturer. But to deal direct you will have to commit to monthly minimum orders.
