Designed for professional video security applications, the VRC7032 32-channel PCIe DVR add-in card features the Exar S7100 software configurable processor and performs H.264 High Profile encoding on 32 channels of standard definition video at full resolution and frame rate. Extensive video preprocessing coupled with the power of the Exar H.264 High Profile codec give the VRC7032 the best video quality in the industry. At equivalent quality levels, compressed streams produced by the VRC7032 have one-half the bit rate of existing solutions. This results in a 50 percent reduction in storage costs for surveillance installations using the VRC7032. The VRC7032 is a full height, short form factor card with a high bandwidth PCIe interface for connectivity with host systems. The card features a dual-port high speed serial interface that can be used to connect the card directly to additional Stretch products, including decode and display cards. In this way, multiple channels of high bandwidth raw video data can be moved from card to card for local display on high definition monitors without consuming host bandwidth. It also supports 16 channels of alarm input–output and an RS485 interface for remote camera control through an I/O header. The card also has a debug connector for UART and JTAG interfaces, which facilitates hardware and software debugging.
