With its offering of channel density and ability to combine encoding and decoding of multiple contribution formats in the same chassis, Appear’s X Platform delivers low-latency video quality in a redundant architecture to ensure the highest availability.

The X Platform can accommodate a range of input, processing, and output modules for all contribution scenarios in video, satellite and all-IP infrastructures. Modules for receiving compressed or uncompressed video from IP or SDI are readily available, with support for HD, 4K and 8K. Contribution links support ultra-low and low-latency codec formats including TICO, J2K, HEVC and AVC.
The software-defined hardware allows RTVE to run variety of features on identical hardware modules. All modules, power supplies and fans are hot-swappable. Installation and configuration of the X Platform will be handled by MoMe, Appear’s business partner and system integrator in Spain.
“Offering an adaptable and future-proof solution to RTVE, delivering on their contribution needs both today and tomorrow was our goal,” said Jaime Herbada, Operations Director at MoMe. “Appear’s modular approach allows RTVE to upgrade existing equipment to 4K and beyond, securing both flexibility and their investment.”
