Stretch Inc., a provider of software configurable processors, announced its VCC6000 Series of PCIe video capture cards. The cards, initially available in 16- and 8-channel versions, are designed for OEMs and are easily integrated with existing DVR applications and host-based compression solutions.
The VCC6000 Series uses a rich Application Programmers Interface (API) to make porting straightforward and to ensure maximum re-use of existing application code. "The VCC6000 Series complements successful VRC6000 Series," said Bob Beachler, Stretch vice president of marketing. "Our customers liked the complete encoding solutions we developed in the VRC6000 Series and asked us to develop a similarly complete solution for capture-only applications."
The VCC6416 16-channel card captures up to 16 channels of D1 resolution video at 30 frames per second. It features a high bandwidth, 4 lane PCIe interface to ensure that no frames are dropped as the captured streams are uploaded to the host system. A single S6000 family software configurable processor performs de-interlacing and preprocessing on the input video streams and runs video analytics within user-defined regions of interest. "We designed the VCC6000 Series capture cards to deliver the ultimate in video quality, with full frame rate and full resolution capture," Beachler said. "The surveillance industry is demanding better quality and real-time video. The VCC6000 Series delivers just that, and sets new performance standards for the industry."
The VCC6008 captures 8 channels of full frame rate D1 video in a 1 lane PCIe interface form factor. The same video processing capabilities and programming API are common across all members of the VCC6000 Series, making it easy for OEMs and system integrators to select the channel density and price point required for their particular application.
