“We’re excited to highlight the latest capabilities of our hardware and software platforms with focus on low latency through a real life eSports tournament at IBC 2019,” says Thomas Lind, Product Management Director, Appear. “As part of our presentation, we’ll take visitors through every step of the process, from the live capture (in this case, tournament) to the studio and then operator/delivery platform and ultimately to the end-user. Included among our presentation will be our X-Platform (X10/X20) low-latency contribution solutions and encoding codecs that are used by broadcasters that adopt an IP-centric operation. We will also use this opportunity to spotlight the Adaptive Bitrate (ABR) linear packager, which provides varying resolutions and video streams to address the wide array of playback devices.”
