SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Techwell, Inc., a leading designer of mixed signal video semiconductor solutions for the consumer electronics, security surveillance, and automotive markets, today introduced two turnkey DVR solutions for the CCTV Security Surveillance market. Leveraging its extensive line of highly integrated, feature rich surveillance ICs, these platforms are designed to enable both PCI Express DVR and Standalone DVR manufacturers to go to market quickly with highly functional, cost effective solutions.

"These two new turnkey platforms represents Techwell's commitment to provide complete DVR solutions to manufacturers of security surveillance products," said David Nam, VP Sales and Marketing for Techwell. "We are already seeing demand for these new solutions and we are excited about rolling them out to our surveillance customers through the end of this year and into early 2007."

The Techwell PCI Express DVR solution supports 8 channel real time and 16 or 32 channel non-real time recording. In addition, the PCI Express Card supports over 6 full D1 resolutions compared to 4 full D1 resolutions for PCI DVR Cards. Other functionality includes support for 7 frames per second recoding in NTSC or 6 frames per second recording in PAL and 1 channel audio recording. The Techwell PCI Express DVR Card leverages Techwell's TW6802 video decoder with PCI and has a reliable TV quality video decoder core including 2D (4H) comb filter and exceptional weak signal performance for weak signal camera support.

The Techwell Standalone DVR is a 4 channel turnkey solution and supports full triplex operation including simultaneous live, play, record and network connection. Ethernet (TCP/IP) and a remote viewer program are included in addition to USB 2.0 full speed compatible back up and support for up to two hard disk drives each with over 250GB capacity. Other features include foreign language OSD support, 16x12 cell motion detection and multiple search modes including event search, date/time search, and search bar.
