16-Channel 960H PAL NTSC Digital Video Recorder PCIe Add-in Card


The VRC7016XE Digital Video Recorder (DVR) PCI Express add-in card features two Exar S7110 software configurable video processors and performs H.264 encoding on sixteen channels of 960H video at full resolution and frame rate. In addition to widescreen 960H video, the VRC7016XE also supports standard definition PAL and NTSC video formats for complete backwards compatibility with existing systems.

Extensive video preprocessing coupled with the power of the Exar Intelligent Encoder give the VRC7016XE excellent video quality while maintaining high compression levels. This results in tremendous reduction in storage costs for surveillance installations using the VRC7016XE card. 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 VRC7016XE is a low profile PCIe short form factor card. A high bandwidth PCIe interface provides connectivity to host systems. Exar PCIe add-in cards are shipped with either a standard height bracket or a low-profile bracket ensuring easy integration with any server.

Exar’s line of alarm I/O cards are fully compatible with the VRC7016XE providing eight or sixteen channels of alarm I/O as well as an RS-485 interface for pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) camera control. The card also has a debug connector for UART and JTAG interfaces to facilitate hardware and software debugging.
