The power and flexibility of Stretch software configurable processors make them ideally suited for video processing and Stretch processors have been widely embraced by the surveillance industry. As the industry transitions from standard to high definition video and from analog streams to Internet Protocol transmission, there is tremendous demand for high performance, low cost video processors. Stretch S6000 and S7000 software configurable processors deliver the industry's highest video quality at the lowest cost per channel available and leading edge CODECs such as the H.264 Scalable Video CODEC (SVC) are opening up new use models, making content more available and more manageable than ever.
Stretch reference designs and OEM products showcase the capabilities of Stretch processors in both DVR and surveillance camera applications. All Stretch reference designs ship with complete software development kits and sample host applications, making them ideal as either production-ready units or a starting point for highly differentiated derivative products.
The high performance and low price points established by Stretch software configurable processors make it possible for surveillance equipment designers to bring advanced features such as video analytics and leading-edge video processing to the mainstream market.
