Intersil Corporation is expanding the Intersil Techwell SLOC (Security Link Over Coax) ecosystem. The company has worked closely with a number of global technology leaders to address the need for increased security worldwide and by expanding the SLOC ecosystem it will be able to bring the technology”s various benefits to a wider range of systems and applications.
Intersil has joined forces with nearly 100 global companies, including Sony, Altronix, and Hikvision, to create a SLOC ecosystem for standardisation and solution awareness, designed to accelerate the global adoption and implementation of hybrid IP-based security systems for the video surveillance market.
System integrators and manufacturers will now be able to architect a more efficient hybrid surveillance system that will be able to address a host of technical barriers, while enabling all of the benefits of IP networked cameras and network analytics. SLOC is a modem physical layer technology that enables high resolution mega-pixel and HD IP-based cameras to operate within the existing analogue CCTV coaxial cable infrastructure without the need for new cabling. SLOC consists of a camera transmitter and a DVR/NVR receiver, a combination that enables high-performance and robust bidirectional communication between the camera and the video recorder over long cable runs.
Among the technology’s key benefits are: it supports distances up to 500m of coaxial cabling, eliminating the need for repeaters; provides an instant upgrade path from SD quality to HD and Mega-pixel resolutions; enables digital IP camera functionality on existing coaxial wiring infrastructure with no disruption of existing CCTV services; embedded analogue CVBS (colour, video, blanking, sync) video enables latency-free live viewing and controlling of digital IP cameras and there’s no need for new wiring or cable modifications provides significant cost and resource savings.
“Enterprises are looking for the opportunity to upgrade to higher resolution solutions in a way that is economical and that can be implemented using a phased approach rather than a single large capital outlay,” said Susan Hardman, Senior Vice President of the Analog & Mixed Signal Products Group at Intersil. “Developed by Techwell, SLOC technology utilizes the coaxial cable in the existing infrastructure, transmits the new IP-based digital data and still provides the analog signal – all out of the same camera – thus tremendously speeding adoption.”
