The Appear TV Universal Encoder – Dense Broadcast mode is a fully integrated, hardware-based encoder solution utilizing the latest advances for both AVC(H264) and MPEG 2 compression technology extracting every possible performance benefit currently possible.
Based on the new Universal range encoder hardware platform, the Universal Encoder combines the flexibility and programmability of a software solution with the clear efficiency and performance benefits that only hardware provides. The immense computational power of the platform runs all-new and highly evolved encoding algorithms, boosting performance to the limits for both AVC and MPEG2. This combined with the increased audio encoding capacity, makes it one of the most powerful encoder platforms on the market. With the enhanced audio processing capacity, the module can handle multiple audio channels including multiple Dolby Digital and Dolby Digital Plus channels. Complementing the algorithmic improvements is an all-new statistical multiplexing system with lightning fast refresh rate.
