At the NAB show in Las Vegas, Appear TV debuted the latest addition to its modular system, the Dense Multiscreen/OTT Encoder Module. Designed for multiscreen and OTT applications where SDI or HD/SDI baseband inputs are required, such as primary distribution, the module is intended to reduces the need to re-transcode in the broadcast chain for all-screen delivery.

The new module is a part of Appear TV's modular headend concept, which is designed to allow users to select from the different modules covering the various distribution formats and processes to create a solution custom-tailored to their needs. When adding the Multiscreen/OTT Encoder Module to a configuration using the XC5000 series 4RU frame, users can create up to 64 HD, or 192 SD or more than 400 sub-SD profiles.
