Appear To Demonstrate Spectrum Of Encoding Options At NAB

News Image
Appear is to unveil the complete range of encoding codecs available for its X10/20 Platform at the 2018 NAB Show.

The encoding options have ultra-low latency and are to include TICO, JPEG2000 and HEVC all within a single chassis.

The range covers the gamut for bitrate and latency applications from distribution to contribution compression, supplying operators with a full range of compression capabilities for the entire broadcast chain.

Appear continues to develop its product offerings to support the implementation of both current and future video standards. Current encoding options allow for the conversion of uncompressed video between legacy SDI and to/from SDI over IP, with options to perform 'light' compression/decompression using intra-codecs such as TICO and JPEG2000 or full encoding/decoding using HEVC.

By unifying ultra-low latency modes within one chassis, video processing is streamlined for the majority of video applications. The modes achieve latency of less than 5ms with TICO, 200ms with JPEG2000 and 160ms with HEVC. Compression ratio options cover the entire spectrum; 1:1 uncompressed, ~1:4 with TICO, ~1:10 with JPEG2000 and <1:1000 with HEVC. The operator is free to define the optimal codec/network tradeoff – from high capacity fiber to satellite.

"Achieving ultra-low latency within one compact frame with routing capabilities puts us in the unique position of supplying our customers with a single solution for accessing universal compression capabilities," said Carl Walter Holst, CEO of Appear. "We can now offer advanced, ultra-low latency compression from contribution through distribution, while still maintaining high-quality video delivery."
