Appear TV to demo multiscreen and OTT solutions

Appear TV will use IBC to demonstrate its multiscreen and OTT systems fully for the first time.

The Appear TV multiscreen solution is based on the company’s modular chassis headend concept. The Appear TV solution will utilise second-generation encoding and transcoding technology to solve the challenges of transcoding large numbers of services much more efficiently and at a higher quality level than has been possible before, according to the company. Modules for multiscreen include content acquisition, pre-processing, HW-based encoding and transcoding, segmentation and adaptive bit-rate streaming, protection and delivery.

“Our customers tell us that multiscreen is becoming a must have, those that have launched with first generation solutions also tell us they have not always met operational efficiency and quality of service expectations,” said Carl Walter-Holst, CEO, Appear TV. “We’re meeting these issues head on by the IBC launch of our hardware-based multiscreen offering that can co-exist with existing headends solutions or be deployed with everything required from content acquisition through to content delivery in a broadcast quality headend chassis.”

Appear TV will be exhibiting at IBC on Stand 1.C61
