Appear TV has launched Zixi input and output support on its X platform.
The Appear TV X platform provides high-speed video networking, enhanced IP security, video distribution and contribution, comprising a compact 1RU – X10 and capacious 2RU – X20 option.
The products can both be fitted with a range of input, processing and output modules that enable bridging between commonly used legacy video platforms and an all-IP infrastructure.
The dual IP IO modules provide native 10G uni- and bi-directional port connectivity, and the software-defined hardware allows for a variety of software features to run on identical hardware modules.
Appear TV product management director Thomas Lind said: “We see an increased demand for modular video transport solutions over IP, providing the flexibility broadcasters and operators require, whilst maintaining ease of use, power efficiency and density.
“Our partnership with Zixi allows our customers to tap into the Zixi Cloud service for broadcast-quality video delivery over public IP networks, presenting a natural extension to our X platform.”
