Bridge and Appear TV to provide advanced IP-based solutions
Bridge Technologies partner with Appear TV to provide advanced IP-based production and distribution
Bridge Technologies has collaborated with Appear in a setup which facilitates end-to-end delivery and monitoring of data, uncompressed to compressed, from production to end user.
The partnership comes on the back of their recent announcement of the new Integrated Services Monitoring (ISM) model
ISM seeks to bring Bridge Technologies portfolio of products into a turnkey, easy-to-install media monitoring system.
The advanced IP-based production and distribution setup would have also been demoed at NAB this year.
The setup has been fully tested with four cameras with SDI outputs feeding an IP network processor to seamlessly bridge SDI and IP networks.
The encapsulated SDI-IP signal is forwarded to the Appear X10 that encodes SDI into SPTS multicast and to the Appear ABR transcoder for conversion to HLS OTT and distribution. The Appear XC5000 carrier grade platform with built-in automatic routing of signals is also part of the setup for IP in/out distribution and RF transport.
