Two fairly sizable companies are joining the HDcctv Alliance - Chinese video surveillance leader CSST and Wide Dynamic Range chipset leader Pixim.
CSST is important for the large and growing Chinese market as they are widely recognized to be the Chinese market leader (with $427M USD revenue in 2008). Given the low market share for IP cameras in China, CSST's support for HDcctv makes sense. It also could help drive adoption in China, a key market for the future of video surveillance.
Pixim plans for their future HD Pixim chipsets to be compatible with HDcctv specifications (though a release date is not available).
[Update 2012: Pixim still has no HD cameras (IP or HDcctv) and CSST's prominence has faded. The HDcctv Alliance continues to work on building in Asia, Europe for lower end deployments.]
