FEBRUARY 27, 2009--The DVMB-764 is a digital video motherboard built on an Intel Q965 Core2 Duo/Quad Core platform and a 16-channel MPEG4 hardware encoding engine. Four MPEG4 codecs are embedded into the motherboard to develop an all-in-one, integrated video motherboard to completely replace PC-based DVR system structures, which have been used to combine motherboard and video capture cards. The board supports 16-channel video encoding at D1 resolution and a total of 480 frames/s. The hardware audio/video codecs integrate real time-preview, encoding, smart quad, motion detection, OSD, and video playback functions. They are able to generate multiple MPEG4 and MJPEG video streams for storage and raw video streams for video analysis.

PRESS RELEASE

New Generation Embedded 16CH D1 Video Motherboard

Irvine, California, February 4, 2009 - Advantech, the leading industrial ePlatform provider, is proud to bring a new solution for a new generation of video surveillance applications to market, the DVMB-764. The DVMB-764 is a high performance digital video motherboard built on an Intel Q965 Core2 Duo/Quad Core platform and a 16-channel MPEG4 hardware encoding engine.

Leveraging industrial motherboard design technologies, Advantech has embedded four MPEG4 codecs into the motherboard to develop a new generation, all-in-one, integrated video motherboard. It completely replaces PC-based DVR system structures, which traditionally have been used to combine motherboard and video capture cards. DVMB-764 sets a new standard over the current configuration of security monitoring products, by integrating PC platform and DVR technology providing clients with efficient, reliable and economic solutions.

High Performance with Slim Size
The DVMB-764 supports 16-channel video encoding at D1 resolution and a total of 480 frames per second. The hardware audio/video codecs integrate multiple functions such as real time preview, encoding, smart quad, motion detection, OSD, and video playback. The codecs are able to generate multiple MPEG4 and MJPEG video streams for storage, and raw video streams for video analysis. In addition to an on-board graphics engine and SATA RAID 6 support, an additional graphics card and hardware RAID card can also be implemented via a PCIe interface. A standard ATX form factor and rugged design with duo LAN, duo IDE, and all solid capacitors, make the DVMB-764 the idea platform for such high performance digital video applications as intelligent video analysis, video conferencing, PC-based DVR, and hybrid DVR. In other words, DVMB-764 demonstrates the same performance in a smaller footprint as general PC-based DVR systems with a traditional motherboard and capture card configuration.

The space saving platform gives system integrators higher flexibility and a lower component cost. Targeted at DVR software companies, Advantech provides a complete SDK (Software Development Kit) with demo program to help value-added integrators design their own integrated surveillance solutions using the DVMB-764.

A New Booming Opportunity!
Leveraging 25 years of experience in design and manufacturing of industrial platforms, Advantech has now forged ahead providing new DVR solutions to our worldwide partners. The new platforms include video capture cards, video motherboards, DVR bare bone systems, and NVR platform solutions. Integrated services support not only hardware but also firmware as well, and an SDK which help system integrators ease application porting to our new DVR platform. With longevity services, global logistics, RMA services, and strong design and manufacturing capacity, Advantech is ready to work with surveillance partners worldwide to take advantage of this booming opportunity.
