LAS VEGAS, APRIL 8, 2013 — Appear TV, a leading global provider of next-generation headends for broadcast and IP television, is debuting its Satellite Uplink/DTH Headend Solution at the 2013 NAB Show (Booth SU7605). Designed as an efficient, space-saving innovative alternative to the multirack solutions currently in place at most satellite broadcast facilities, the new offering brings all the processes and functionalities required for DTH (Direct-to-Home), trunking and satellite distribution applications into a single 4RU hardware-based modular frame.
Appear TV’s compact and feature-rich Satellite Uplink/DTH Headend Solution is part of its revolutionary modular-chassis headend concept. This allows broadcasters to select from several different satellite modules to create a custom-tailored headend. The combined modules create a full solution encompassing hardware-based compression, full statistical multiplexing, flexible MPEG multiplexing and satellite modulation with advanced digital pre-correction. Incorporating all these features into one frame eliminates the waste of power supplies, front panels, control cards and other components traditional solutions often duplicate many times over.
