High capacity streaming supports MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 for SD and HD services. The high functionality of Appear TV equipment includes full PSI/SI regeneration and the addition of service related PIDs. Its intuitive interface makes it extremely easy to define SPTS or MPTS services, encrypt them and assign to multicasts using a drag and drop approach.
