Increased internet access together with more powerful computers, integrated TVs, tablets and mobile phones makes it possible for consumers to receive video content from broadcasters anywhere, at any time and on any screen. This introduces new challenges for content and network infrastructure providers who need to offer a wide range of different distribution formats with the best possible live video experience regardless of the distribution networks and viewing devices that are being used.

The latest Universal Encoder running in Multiscreen mode from Appear enables broadcasters and IP network operators to provide high quality multiscreen services. The encoder module accepts SDI/HDSDI inputs directly, and encodes these into multiple profiles as a single pass, avoiding the need to concatenate compression stages which always causes inefficiencies and reduces VQ. Its unique architecture delivers significant VQ and efficiency benfits for all real-time applications..

Offering a truly optimized OTT solution capable of accepting a wide range of signal formats. The benefits are magnified further by a modular architecture that lets you fit encoding or transcoding options freely according to actual need. The Appear TV Multiscreen encoder/ transcoder simultaneously prepares multiple signals for distribution to high definition televisions, high resolution computers and low resolution web and mobile devices.
