March 30, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Intersil Corporation has joined forces with Sony Corporation and Altronix, Inc to accelerate adoption of hybrid IP-based security systems for the video surveillance market.

Intersil's SLOC (Security Link over Coax) technology enables latency-free analog video + HD IP video over a single coaxial cable. It also provides full functionality using existing coaxial infrastructure. Sony, Intersil and Altronix plan to demonstrate end-to-end hybrid video solutions and formed an industry alliance to create an ecosystem for interoperability and standardization.

“Hybrid IP solutions enable us to offer a new level of innovation to our customers by bringing Full HD and HD IP solutions to existing analog SD infrastructure,” said Takashi Honda, Senior General Manager, Visual Security Solution business division at Sony Corporation. “Additionally, hybrid video technology is setting a new standard for performance in the security industry and strongly contributing to the overall transformation of the market.”

“The development of our eBridge™ series Ethernet over Coax Adapters incorporating Intersil SLOC technology provide extremely cost-efficient upgrades from analog to IP migration onto a network platform by repurposing legacy coax infrastructure” said Alan Forman, President, Altronix Corp.
