Fully Integrated Receivers With Limitless Flexibility
Appear TV’s compact receiver modules provide high-density demodulation of satellite, terrestrial or cable (QAM) inputs. All common digital broadcast standards are supported; DVB-S/S2/S2X, DVB-T/T2, 8VSB, ISDB-T and DVB-C/QAM B. The demodulators can be used in combination with all available Appear TV modules, making tailored solutions possible. Reception can be combined with descrambling, transcoding, re-scrambling, multiplexing, PSI/SI/PSIP regeneration and different output options in a single chassis. Appear TV’s solution offers broadcasters both higher rack density and lower power consumption.

Appear TV offers a wide selection of processing options for receiver applications, from descrambling to transcoding. High-rate descrambling is available for cardless systems (selected vendors) and with industry standard CAM based descramblers. Appear TV's any-to-any transcoders allows converting input services from MPEG-2 to MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) or vice versa, with advanced pre-processing filters.

Appear TV receiver modules can be combined with all available output modules, forming a fully integrated solution tailored to the customer's specific needs. Industry standard ASI and IP outputs are available, as well as digital and analog decoded outputs. Even modulated outputs are possible, ideal for end-to-end transmodulation applications.
