Appear to add SRT transport capabilities to its X platform at NAB Show 2023

Appear has recently announced the launch of its hardware accelerated video transport technology over the SRT (Secure Reliable Transport) protocol. The technology will officially be presented, and integrated into its X Platform, at NAB Show 2023 (booth #W2512, April 15-19).

This platform is used for live contribution, remote production and distribution. The X Platform offers the ability to blend encapsulation formats such as MPEG TS, ST2022-6, ST2110, Zixi and now high capacity SRT, with several codecs and video processing functions. In a single 1RU chassis, Appear’s X Platform as an SRT Gateway can handle more than 192 SRT connections and 18 Gbit/s throughput.

“Media and entertainment organizations face a conundrum: consumers expect more and more choice, while transporting long-tail video presently has a similar cost-base to that of high-value content,” says Thomas Bostrøm Jørgensen, CEO, Appear. “The quantum leap in video transport performance that our hardware accelerated SRT implementation now provides, enables media and entertainment companies to revolutionize efficiency, ROI and flexibility through transporting high-quality video over the Internet. If you’re moving video and both quality and cost matter, our SRT solutions can make significant reductions to your video transport OPEX costs.”

“We expect long-tail content to rapidly move to SRT, while some higher value content will be transported using SRT alongside existing traditional transport links when it makes sense. Critically, Appear’s launch of high-density SRT solutions enables media & entertainment organizations to at last be able to align video transport costs with content value,” assured Thomas Lind, Director Product Management, Appear.
