Intersil Expands Video Surveillance Leadership Coalition

Growing SLOC™ Ecosystem Accelerates IP and HD Camera Adoption

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 12, 2012) -  Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a world leader in the design and manufacture of high performance analog and mixed signal semiconductors, today announced the expansion of the Intersil Techwell SLOC™ (Security Link Over Coax) ecosystem. Intersil has worked closely with global technology leaders to address the need for increased security worldwide and reasserted its commitment to the next-generation video surveillance system solution.

The SLOC Ecosystem
Expanding the SLOC ecosystem brings the technology's various benefits to a wide 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 standardization and solution awareness, designed to accelerate the global adoption and implementation of hybrid IP-based security systems for the video surveillance market.

Simply Smarter Security
System integrators and manufacturers can now architect an efficient hybrid surveillance system that addresses all of the technical barriers, while enabling all of the benefits of IP networked cameras and network analytics. Intersil's SLOC is an innovative modem physical layer technology that enables high resolution mega-pixel and HD IP-based cameras to operate within the existing analog 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.

Benefits and Features

  • 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 analog CVBS (color, video, blanking, sync) video enables latency-free live viewing and controlling of digital IP cameras
  • No need for new wiring or cable modifications provides significant cost and resource savings

"We are pleased that Intersil's SLOC technology enables us to offer increased value to our customers by bringing a HD network camera solution to their existing SD infrastructure," said Mr. Takashi Honda - Senior General Manager, Visual Security Solutions Business Division, Sony Corporation. "This collaboration enables us to cohesively overcome industry hurdles.
We expect to create the new category in security camera market and mutually expand business."

"Altronix continues to engineer and manufacture innovative solutions that support the latest industry trends in IP surveillance deployment," said Alan Forman, President, Altronix Corp. "Intersil SLOC technology, in conjunction with our eBridge™ series Ethernet over Coax Adapters, provides extremely cost-efficient migration path from analog to IP functionality by repurposing legacy coax infrastructure."

"The video surveillance market is entering a critical transition to higher resolution video," said Xuefeng Qian, Research and Development Director of Hikvision. "To meet these market demands, Hikvision collaborates with technology leaders to provide solutions for industry challenges. By integrating Intersil's SLOC solution inside our adaptors, we enable an additional feature set for Hikvision's cameras and hybrid DVRs, thus solving frustrating issues inherent within digital and analog video."

"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."
