16-Channel DVR PCIe Add-in Card


Designed for professional video surveillance applications, the VRC7016X Digital Video Recorder (DVR) PCI Express add-in card features two Exar S7110 software configurable processors and performs H.264 encoding on 16 channels of standard definition video at full resolution and frame rate. The VRC7016X also offers two channels of spot monitor output. Using the spot monitor outputs, multiple channels of video can be scaled, tiled, and displayed in user-defined layouts on a standard definition monitor. This eliminates the need for additional analog output cards and reduces the cost of surveillance installations. The Programmable Accelerator of the S7110 at the core of the Intelligent Encoder delivers multi-stream encoding of baseline, main, and high-profile H.264 Advanced Video CODEC (AVC). In addition, the S7110 video processor drives H.264 Scalable Video CODEC (SVC) compression that enables flexible and efficient resizing and resampling of multi-stream surveillance video. The VRC7016X is designed specifically for video surveillance equipment OEMs. The card is controlled via the Intelligent Encoder Software Development Kit (SDK) for either Linux or Windows. The VRC7016X is also compatible with all Exar S7000-based PCIe cards and OEMs already familiar with the SDK can integrate the card into their software in a matter of hours. With clear SDK documentation and support of Exar Application Engineering, new design teams also achieve rapid time-to-market. The low-profile short-form-factor card is readily embedded in compact industrial PCs and servers. A high bandwidth PCIe interface provides connectivity to the host. The card also supports sixteen channels of alarm I/O and an RS485 interface for remote camera control through an I/O header with an optional I/O card.
