Appear TV Expands X Platform

Appear TV says its latest UHD broadcast and OTT transcoder portfolio is now available.

Appear TV’s new X-Series transcoder complements its X platform transcoder and software-based video compression tools. Using 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.

“Transcoders are essential for broadcasters or operators looking to provide high-quality content, while keeping bitrates to a minimum,” says Carl Walter Holst, CEO, Appear TV. “Linear distribution or OTT, live or file, on-premise or cloud – Appear TV has a solution that will fit your needs. Appear provides transcoding tools to fit various workflows with an exceptional customer experience across all devices.”

The X platform transcoder supports transcoding up to 2 full UHD or 8 HD channels per module. This enables transcoding of up to 12 UHD or 48 HD channels per RU for demanding high-density deployments. The transcoder supports transcoding of MPEG-2, AVC and HEVC source signals, into AVC and HEVC up to full UHD for the output.
