System of choice for multiservice cable operators

Appear TV’s DC1000/DC1100 enables cable operators to use a common hardware platform to deliver high quality analog and digital TV services. By integrating all functions into a single chassis, Appear TV is able to offer a high density solution boasting high performance outputs with exceptional reliability.
The most manageable solution on the market, the DC1000/DC1100 offers an intuitive user interface as well as remote configuration of all modules, simplifying system deployment and reducing operational routines. The DC1000/DC1100 includes a comprehensive alarm system along with facility for integration with 3rd party management systems, enabling fully automatic alarm capture and fault rectification.

Simulcast for Cable Operators

The DC1000/DC1100 eliminates the need to distribute analog channels over the core network; ensuring optimal bandwidth utilization whilst maintaining complete flexibility of local programming. The high performance RF module supports A2, NICAM stereo as well as Russian SECAM.

Downlink and Monitoring

Appear TV decoders with SDI/HDSDI outputs and optional AES/EBU audio outputs are ideal for downlink and rebroadcast, or for local studio monitoring purposes. The DC1000/DC1100 may be configured with DVB-S, DVB-S2, DVB-C or DVB-T/T2 input modules. This high density MPEG-2 SD/HD and MPEG-4 AVC SD/HD decoder with SDI/HDSDI output enables decoding of up to 30 channels in a single 4RU chassis. The output is either SDI or HD-SDI with 2 (or 4) embedded stereo audio tracks and VBI.

Cable FM Radio System

Appear TV FM radio decoders offer cable operators a compact solution for the delivery of radio services. Decoding and FM modulating up to 8 radio services per module makes it possible to provide all required FM channels in a single chassis. This solution is easy to deploy and operate, and supports RDS data insertion. In addition, these FM radio decoders can be combined with decoders having built-in RF modulation and digital QAM modulator, making them a complete remote head-end for cable operators.

Digital Cable Modulation

The DC1000/DC1100 can also be equipped with digital QAM output or COFDM output modules to deliver the digital subscriber package, enabling operators to manage both analog and digital services within a common platform, through a single user interface.


Appear TV provides two types of descramblers: one that is CAM-based (DVB-Common Interface) and another for bulk descrambling. The DVB-CI based descramblers are capable of descrambling up to 10 DVB scrambled services per CAM.
The bulk descrambler, on the other hand, is aimed at software-based CA systems. It is used for the descrambling of multiple services protected by one or more CA systems.
The bulk descrambler is capable of descrambling up to 250 DVB or AES scrambled services. With support for various CA systems, be it hardware-based or software-based, Appear TV’s descramblers are an efficient, space and energy saving solution.

Resilience is built into the Appear TV architecture. DC1000/DC1100 modules are hot-swappable, including power supplies and fans. Pro MPEG FEC support is optional, and Appear TV’s redundancy solution offers full or partial redundancy for a variety of failure scenarios.
