TDC taps Appear TV for video processing

Nordic pay TV operator TDC has selected Appear TV’s XC5000 video processing platform to provide encoding and multiscreen transcoding for live linear broadcasts.

The platform will be deployed for all TDC’s broadcasts, including the YouSee cable service and its OTT and multiscreen offerings.

With the deployment, TDC aims to provide high quality picture across 100 linear OTT channels to around 1.2 million subscribers in Denmark and Norway.

“When choosing our next generation video compression platform, we were looking for a single, user-friendly platform that would enable us to update our signal processing equipment to offer best in class image quality. This meant that we had to take into account a number of parameters, including video quality, power consumption, ease of integration and operation and the number of switches required to operate multiple TV services with hundreds of channels,” said Mads Arnbjørn Rasmussen, vice-president TV and coaxial technology, TDC.

The Appear TV XC5000 platform is designed to accommodate customers’ preferred system architectures while reducing complexity. It is possible to build an entire broadcast system in a single chassis consisting of discreet stages or distributed architectures.
