IBM Aspera NAB 2019 Show Preview

At the 2019 NAB Show, IBM Aspera will showcase new functionality designed to enable reliable movement of media with ever-increasing speed. The company will preview Aspera on Cloud automation capabilities, a new layer of cloud transfer security achieved through blockchain, and advancements in Aspera Streaming for Video.

IBM Aspera will preview new Seamless Protection Switching capabilities that support the SMPTE 2022-7 standard. The redundant data transmissions created in accordance with these guidelines ensure that organisations are able to incorporate streaming over IP into critical workflows such as remote production and OTT delivery without the risk of falling behind or a connection being unexpectedly terminated. 

The company's implementation of the standard enables unique, on-the-fly additions of redundant connections to existing transmissions, allowing for connection adjustments without disruption.

Also to be showcased at the 2019 NAB Show, Aspera with IBM Hyperledger is an integrated solution that gives customers the ability to establish trusted business networks through an immutable chain of custody, build an additional layer of security around assets, enable forensic auditing, and reliably execute commercial contracts over the internet.

Lastly, the company will preview new capabilities in a beta release of Aspera Streaming for Video, which builds upon the next-generation Aspera FASP protocol with full bi-directional communication that allows FASP to substitute for TCP in any bulk transport application without modification. 

This enables the transport of live video from RTMP- and HTTP-based media servers and transcoders, IoT streams and live logging feeds for aggregation in cloud data analytics platforms, and support bulk content replication over the wide area network (WAN). This beta release will provide a full-fledged suite of software that can easily be deployed across servers, desktops and mobile devices.

Aspera will also preview product innovations to help customers get up and running quickly and easily. The latest easy-to-use web application for Aspera Streaming for Video enables fast, simple set-up with auto-discovery of network streaming devices, centralized monitoring and management features, and full visibility of devices, streams and connections.
