Appear Shows Codec Range at NAB 2018

​Encoder developer Appear TV plans to demonstrate product encoding codecs available within its X10/20 Platform. The self-described updated ultra-low latency encoding includes TICO, JPEG2000 and HEVC all within a single chassis.

Appear continues to develop its products to support the implementation of both current and future video standards, it says.

Its current encoding options allow for the conversion of uncompressed video between legacy SDI and to/from SDI over IP, with options to perform ‘light’ compression/decompression using intra-codecs such as TICO and JPEG2000 or full encoding/decoding using HEVC.

“By unifying ultra-low latency modes within one chassis, video processing is streamlined for the majority of video applications,” states the firm. “The modes achieve latency of less than 5ms with TICO, 200ms with JPEG2000 and 160ms with HEVC. Compression ratio options cover the entire spectrum; 1:1 uncompressed, ~1:4 with TICO, ~1:10 with JPEG2000 and <1:1000 with HEVC.”

The operator is free to define the optimal codec/network trade off - from high capacity fiber to satellite.
