Stretch's Hybrid HD DVR Reference Design Examined

By: John Honovich, Published on Nov 18, 2009

Chipmaker Stretch has announced a reference design for a hybrid High Definition DVR system. For background on Stretch see our examination of Stretch's November 2009 investment.

The reference design, called the VRM6016, aims at reducing time and complexity of OEMs rolling out Hybrid DVR solutions (see the data sheet for details overview). 

The two most differentiated features supported include:

Stretch anticipates modest cost increases for use of HDcctv or SVC relative to H.264 AVC encoding of SD video.

Given the lead times involved in developing and incorporating reference designs, generally available products based on this are unlikely to appear until later in 2010. When they do appear, they are likely not to publicly reference Stretch as that is common in such OEM agreements.

For those of you interested in tracking HDcctv or SVC adoption, this is noteworthy.
