HDcctv / HD SDI Incompatibility Concerns

Author: John Honovich, Published on Sep 10, 2011

Incompatibility between cameras and recorders are a major source of concern. It is an issue that the HDcctv Alliance has repeatedly raised and criticized for IP cameras. Now, with the Alliance announcing its Version 2.0 specification, they are confronting their own interoperability problems as a schism grows between Alliance providers and HD SDI offerings. In this note, we examine the issue, the potential problems and future impact.
