Stretch announced a 4 channel HDcctv capture card. Since the card will be used by OEMs for integration into DVR systems, product shipment to end users is not likely until Q1 or Q2 2009. The card supports up to 1080p (at 15fps)/ 720p (at 30fps). Expect the card to be used in higher end, professional 'class' DVRs. Pricing will be at a premium to existing Stretch based DVRs as this card's cost is similar to their 16 channel SD cards but only runs 4 HD channels.
The card provides SVC H.264 encoding for the HD streams. This is likely the most interesting technological differentiator. It provides two benefits that are significant: (1) dynamic streaming to better transmit HD camera feeds across the WAN, and (2) reduction in storage costs through periodic re-sizing of videos.
