Chips Target High Definition Video Surveillance


Exar Corporation announced a High Definition Composite Video Interface (HDCVI) chipset designed to deliver HD video over 500 meters on existing coaxial cable infrastructure. The chips provide video surveillance equipment design engineers with cost-effective HD video components that adhere to a global open standard.

The XR5P900 HDCVI single channel encoder delivers uncompressed 1080p HD video up to 30 frames/second and 720p HD video up to 60 frames/second as well as audio and control data over the same coaxial cable. The XR5P900 and the XR5P920 are fully-compatible with other HDCVI products on the market as well as the HDCVI 2.0 standard administered by the HDcctv Alliance.

The XR5P900 also supports standard-definition video in NTSC or PAL formats for compatibility with existing systems. Video surveillance camera manufacturers can easily integrate the XR5P900 with an image signal processor or image sensor with a BT.1120 or BT.656 interface.


The XR5P920 is a four-channel HDCVI decoder which receives video, audio and control data from up to four HDCVI cameras, decodes and digitizes the data for subsequent display, compression or transmission. The XR5P920 is also capable of receiving 960H or D1 CCTV inputs.

The XR5P900 and XR5P920 are available in production quantities.
