ABR just-in-time packager

Publish » Non-Linear Publishing » Non-Linear Publishing Systems » Cable/IPTV VOD servers and systems »

The Appear ABR Packager is a modular software solution providing powerful video ingest and segmentation engine, high-performance storage solution, just-in-time packager/DRM engine and origin server in one complete suite.

The ABR system runs on industry standard off-the-shelf server hardware and can be customized to meet the operators´ specific streaming requirements. With its innovative architecture, our ABR Server allows for seamless growth and scalable redundancy – both through vertical brick-by-brick scaling and horizontal functional separation.

The Appear ABR system is encoding vendor agnostic. Live ingest can be performed by any multiscreen encoder/transcoder, like the Appear X platform, XC platform and Software-based Video Compression.

VOD ingest is equally easy with open APIs and any multiscreen file transcoder, or the fully-integrated file ingest solution in Appear’s Software-based Video Compression.
