Video Contribution Over IP
The Appear X10/X20 platform is a dedicated solution for high-speed video networking, enhanced IP security and advanced compression specifically designed for video contribution and distribution
Designed for near limitless capacity, extensive video awareness, enhanced security, operational simplicity and exceptionally high reliability, the platform solidifies Appear TVs position as a front-runner and pioneer of video delivery.
IP network technology and infrastructure is evolving, as is the distribution of video. Dedicated SDI-based networks are being replaced by transmission over standard IP-based networks as high-speed IP infrastructures are becoming affordable and easily available. Broadcasters seek ways to standardize on IP networks for all video transmission, regardless of video format.
Designed for IP-centric operations
Specifically designed for IP-centric operations, the X10/X20 chassis has a significant video processing capacity. 10G bi-directional IP interfaces provides video firewall-grade IP security at every connection node. Capable of internal routing of up to 140G, the backplane extends Appear TVs tradition of providing high capacity futureproof platforms. The chassis supports dual active backplane providing Appear TV patented lossless redundancy between modules. Service density can be defined up to 2,000 services in and out per module.
Current and future IP video standards
The X platform supports “light” intra-codecs as well as AVC and HEVC. Option modules for receiving compressed or uncompressed video from IP or SDI (Optical and Electrical) are readily available. With backplane latency of less than 1ms, universal applicability for virtually any video application is ensured, as is the implementation of both current and future IP video standards, including VSF-TR03, VSF-TR04 and SMPTE2110.
