Appear TV DVB-S2X support

March 3, 2015

Appear TV, a global provider of next-generation video processing platforms for broadcast and IP television, is to launch demodulation and modulation solutions supporting the new DVB-SX2 standard at the ABU Digital Broadcasting Symposium this week in Kuala Lumpur.

The new standard has a number of advantages for broadcasters and operators, including bandwidth efficiencies of up to 50 per cent over DVB-S2 for professional applications  and 22 per cent for DTH applications.

“By providing support for the new DVB-S2X standard we’re enabling our customers to take advantage of the incredible bandwidth efficiencies this new satellite distribution technology offers,” said Carl Walter Holst, CEO of Appear TV.

“We expect to see DVB-S2X widely deployed by operators and broadcasters for primary and redistribution of content via Satellite, Terrestrial, Cable and IP networks. Our new solutions mean that new and existing Appear TV customers can simply move to DVB-S2X by deploying our new modules in our flexible head-end architecture, with the ease of implementation and bandwidth efficiency combining to make this standard as popular with CFOs as with CTOs,” concluded Holst.
