Appear TV has announced the deployment of its X Platform by Radio Televisión Española (RTVE).
RTVE selected Appear’s X Platform for low-latency 4:2:2 HEVC HD encoding and decoding on radio links between RTVE locations in Prado del Rey, Torrespaña and Salón de Loterías.
The platform offers channel density and the ability to combine encoding and decoding of multiple contribution formats in the same chassis, delivering low-latency video quality in a redundant architecture.
It can also accommodate a range of input, processing and output modules for all contribution scenarios in video, satellite and all-IP infrastructures. Modules for receiving compressed or uncompressed video from IP or SDI are readily available, with support for HD, 4K and 8K.
“The high visual quality at low bitrates was the prime reason for selecting Appear,” said Manuel Delgado, head of the Radio Communication Unit at RTVE. “Combined with the X Platform’s operational simplicity, high reliability and low power consumption, Appear surpass our requirements for dependability and low operating cost.”
