Stretch to release new series of OEM boards featuring its S7000 processors

New designs are available as production-ready OEM products

Stretch offers the industry’s most complete portfolio of PCI Express add-in cards. The new VRC7000 series of PCI Express add-in cards features several industry firsts. The channel density of the S7000 family enables the world’s first low-profile, 16-channel H.264 multi-stream encoding card. Low-profile cards reduce overall card costs and enable unprecedented channel density for 2U rack-mounted systems. Additionally, the VRC7000 series features Stretch’s exclusive External Array Interface Module (eAIM) technology. This high speed serial connectivity transmits compressed or raw video data directly between cards, augmenting the bandwidth provided by PCI Express. In this way, PC-based DVR manufacturers can use lower cost CPU/Chipset combinations, saving $100s in overall system costs. Offered in 8- to 32-channel configurations, including HDcctv options, VRC7000 series cards enable the highest channel density and lowest cost. Stretch also offers a range of decode and display cards that can decode any IP camera stream. Display options include traditional CVBS, HDMI, and HDcctv outputs.

All Stretch S7000-based board products are available as production-ready OEM units sold in multiple unit packaging, as evaluation kits, and as fully-featured reference design kits. Stretch will be demonstrating these new products at Security Essen, October 5-8, booth number GA147, ASIS October 12-14, booth number 3046, and Security China Expo, November 2-5, booth number 1A023-4.
