December, Oslo, Norway – Appear, the global leader in media processing and delivery technology, is proud to announce its win at the Media & Entertainment: Best in Market Awards 2023. The award, presented by leading industry platforms TVBEurope, TV Tech, and Next TV, recognises the most impactful products and solutions in the media and entertainment sector launched or upgraded in the past year.
Appear’s groundbreaking product, the ‘Hardware Accelerated SRT for X Platform‘, was chosen as a winner for its remarkable innovation and transformative impact on the media and entertainment industry. This accolade follows its previous recognition at the NAB Show in April 2023, where it received the TVBEurope Best of Show award.
The Hardware Accelerated SRT for X Platform, developed by Appear’s Oslo-based R&D team, is a testament to the company’s commitment to excellence and innovation. This technology revolutionises Internet video transport by optimizing the Secure Reliable Transport (SRT) protocol. It significantly enhances capacity, density, and flexibility in transporting video over unmanaged internet networks. Unlike conventional SRT solutions, Appear’s product uniquely benefits from hardware acceleration, leading to superior performance in professional video environments without compromising on reliability or quality.
This innovation has already been adopted by major broadcasting brands such as NBCUniversal, DAZN, Amazon Prime, BT, and Sky, underscoring its practical applicability and industry-transforming impact. The 2RU X Platform unit is a game-changer, handling up to 22 UHD camera feeds in contribution environments and enabling cost-effective transmission of channels over the public internet. This not only leads to significant operational cost savings but also eases the transition to cloud-based workflows, marking a crucial step in modern broadcasting.
