Today, having the latest advances extracting every possible performance benefit for both AVC and MPEG 2 compression technology is essential for professional broadcasting and the supporting business case. Whether adding new channels to existing multiplexes or providing genuine video quality improvements at low bitrates, the performance bar for many Tier 1 operators is constantly being reset, through necessity, to seek nothing less than the best possible performance.
Against this requirement, Appear TV has developed an encoding solution that represents the ‘state of the art’ in compression today. Based on all-new hardware, 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.
