Appear TV XC500.
Appear TV will highlight three new modules for its X10/X20 Video Networking hardware platform. It will also showcase its Adaptive Bit-rate (ABR) packager and modular XC5000 chassis at the show.
Appear TV says that the X10/X20 modules support IP centric architectures and positions the company as an authority in the transition phase. Both platforms offer a programmable option with modules that easily alternate between SDI and IP in either the compressed or lightly-compressed domain, allowing users to adopt IP easily in their own timeframe.
“With new features, including core IP security as a firewall, video monitoring, video routing and video re-multiplexing, the X10 and X20 operate as the foundation of an ultra-flexible, ultra-low delay, highly secured broadcast network,” says Carl Walter Holst, CEO. “The code agnostic platforms bridge both the natively encapsulated and MPEG_TS worlds. The three latest processing modules allow for customization, giving users the ability to meet specific requirements: a high-speed IP card that delivers both compressed and uncompressed video, a high-density SDI card and a scrambling card for operations that require secure content delivery.”
Holst says, "By extending our solution portfolio to encompass contribution and distribution over IP, Appear TV aims to be a one-stop supplier for all things related to video delivery. Being a hardware platform, it differs from most products on the market, and we've meticulously designed it in accordance to industry needs. The X10/X20 operates as a default firewall and sets a new precedent for ultra-low UHD delay."
