Appear TV, a provider of video processing platforms for broadcast and streaming, has announced the availability of our UHD broadcast and OTT transcoder functionality on the X platform.
Transcoders have become an essential tool in the continuous race to provide high-quality content on any platform, whilst keeping bitrates to a minimum. Whether you are a broadcaster or operator, Appear can provide you with transcoding tools to fit your workflow, securing an exceptional customer experience across all devices.
Linear distribution or OTT, live or file, on-premise or cloud: Appear have got you covered. The new X platform transcoder complements the Appear XC platform transcoder and Appear software-based video compression, providing you with transcoders to fit any task or deployment. Utilizing the power of software defined hardware, the X platform transcoder runs on Appear’s reprogrammable compression module, allowing the hardware to be configured as an encoder, decoder or transcoder.
The X platform is based on a modular and customizable chassis with fully firewalled bi-directional 10Gb/s IP streaming ports and advanced multiplexing functions as standard. As with all Appear solutions, the chassis allows modules to inter-connect to create an integrated flexible system with the highest tier-1 grade of performance and capability.
The complete transcoder portfolio is on display at ANGA COM (stand G-11).
