Formula 1 opts for Appear TV XC platform

Appear TV has been chosen to provide additional TV reception and distribution systems for Formula One circuits around the world. Deployments this year will take place at Austria’s Red Bull Ring Spielberg and Thailand’s Buriram circuit, which is set to host its first Formula One race in 2015. Appear TV has also renewed deals for Formula One video distribution services at Bahrain circuits.

“We chose Appear TV as its cutting-edge technology provides the industry leading flexibility for signal processing, adaption and channel density for video distribution in a compact fully integrated solution, which is perfect for the delivery of TV services at F1 circuits around the globe,” says Ing. Willi Hambammer, CEO, BK-DAT Electronics e.U Austria.

At the heart of the Appear TV Formula One deployments is the new Appear TV XC 5000 Series video processing platform, providing a modular approach to systems. This is an integral part of the Appear TV design philosophy, which maximizes the technical functionality, customization options and overall flexibility. The Appear TV XC 5000 Series further supports robust Quality of Service (QoS) capability that combines up-rated hot-swappable dual power supplies and enhanced cooling with advanced N+1, N+M redundancy capability with enhanced statistical multiplexing and true multi-platform multicasting capabilities in a single open standard video processing platform. The system integrates all the relevant modules, which are managed by a single User Interface (UI), to offer the most efficient service to Appear TV’s customers.
