Appear TV unveils UHD broadcast/OTT transcoder portfolio

X platform hardware can be configured as an encoder, decoder or transcoder

Appear TV has announced its latest UHD broadcast and OTT transcoder portfolio for its X platform.

The new X-Series transcoder complements the XC platform transcoder and its software-based video compression tools, providing transcoders that fit any task or deployment.

The X platform transcoder runs on Appear’s reprogrammable compression module, allowing the hardware to be configured as an encoder, decoder or transcoder. It features support transcoding up to two full UHD or eight HD channels per module, enabling transcoding of up to 12 UHD or 48 HD channels per RU for demanding high-density deployments.

The transcoder also supports transcoding of MPEG-2, AVC and HEVC source signals, into AVC and HEVC up to full UHD for the output.

“Transcoders are essential for broadcasters or operators looking to provide high-quality content, while keeping bitrates to a minimum,” said Appear TV CEO Carl Walter Holst. “Linear distribution or OTT, live or file, on-premise or Cloud – Appear TV has a solution that will fit your needs.”
