Appear TV Joins TICO Alliance

The TICO Alliance recently announced that Appear TV – designer of equipment for delivery of professional video services – has joined the TICO Alliance to support interoperability for Broadcast IP migration.

“Appear TV is proud to adopt the TICO codec and join the growing TICO Alliance. Adding TICO lightweight compression to the Appear TV X10 and X20 product range will allow premium quality UHD transport over 10G IP networks or legacy 3G-SDI links with a minimum of latency. IP production enables studio grade signals to be easily routed between both local and remote locations. As a purpose-built HW solution specifically designed for IP transport, the synergies of TICO compression and the capacity of the X platform optimises network bandwidth usage while upholding video quality at a premium level.”

At IBC 2017, TICO Alliance solutions meet the increasing demand for higher resolutions such as 4K and 8K and play a vital role in accelerating the SDI to IP industry migration.

“The mission of the TICO Alliance is to provide an interoperable, bandwidth efficient and cost-effective way to manage HD, 4K and 8K in the new Live IP-based production workflows. Moving from SDI to IP, the Broadcast industry is becoming aware of the benefits created by interoperability and bandwidth efficient IP infrastructures,” said Jean-Baptiste Lorent, Chairman of the TICO Alliance. “We look forward to working with Appear TV to capitalise on their vast experience in IP connectivity.”

Visitors to the IBC Show can learn more about the TICO-enabled solutions at the TICO Alliance booth 10D31 and at the Appear TV booth 1C61. Members will be demonstrating real-life solutions and deployments of TICO, across multiple applications including HD over 1GbE, 4K over single 3G-SDI or 10GbE IP using SMPTE 2022-6 or SMPTE 2110 and will also showcase first 8K products.
