X PLATFORM Oslo-based Appear TV has announced a host of new video networking features on the groundbreaking X Platform. Two new modules have been launched to pair with the existing range, which will enable operators to tap more easily into the communication universe. Operators are now able to select between IP and ASI modules, both of which handle up to 2000 services. The IP module supports standards such as SMPTE 2022-6 and SMPTE 2110 with PTP and 40GbE interfaces. The X Platform also provides latency optimised compression, featuring TICO, JPEGG2K, AVC and HEVC at up to UHD resolution with flexible HDR

support, which caters to most applications. Since most functions are software defined, common hardware can be used and repurposed to new roles. “The X Platform provides patented lossless redundancy and quality assurance unrivalled in the industry,” said Thomas Lind, product director at Appear TV. “Our new modules, combined with the latest features, solidify the X Platform’s position as the front runner in the video compression and networking domain.”
