Appear TV—Technology Showcase + Debut @ NAB 2014 (Event—Of SatBroadcasting™ Interest)

[SatNews] Appear TV will introduce its High-Channel Density, MultiFormat SD/HD & Multiscreen Universal Transcoder Module for its modular XC Series Platform at the 2014 NAB Show (Booth SU6110).

Developed for broadcast and IP networks, it provides users with support for more multi-profile multiformat channels than previously possible in a hardware solution.Appear TV’s High-Channel Density, MultiFormat SD/HD & Multiscreen Universal Transcoder Module performs “any-to-any” format transcodes, supporting up to 4 full HD, 16 SD or 28 sub-SD profiles per module, as well as associated audio channels. The modular nature of the Appear TV solution allows multiple transcoder modules to be operated from one 4RU XC5000 frame, with the capacity to support 64 HD, or up to 256 SD or 448 sub-SD profiles per frame.

The module is part of Appear TV’s modular concept, which allows users to select from the different Appear TV modules (Demodulators, Decoding, Descramblers, Transcoders, Encoders, Modulators and Multiple I/O interfaces, etc.) covering the various distribution formats and processes to create a solution custom-tailored to their needs. As Appear TV’s headend is modular, it allows users to have multiple distribution format processes originating from one chassis, saving on hardware space and making it easy to add and upgrade as new formats and transmission technologies arise. In addition, all Appear TV modules can work with other third-party devices, making the integration with existing headend equipment seamless.
