​Dimetis And Aperi Pair For IP Workflows

​Dimetis and Aperi are working together to create new IP‐based workflows covering content aggregation, application orchestration, SD‐WAN/NFV and more.

At NAB, the two companies presented a live demonstration of Dimetis’s OpsNGN and Aperi’s Media Defined Virtualization (MFV), architected for live IP workflows enabling orchestration across the IP‐to‐IP boundary between CSPs and media producers. The orchestration, built around standards‐based RESTful APIs, allows real‐time SMPTE 2022‐2, 2022‐6m and 2110 IP flow analyzing and IP boundary security to replace current baseband workflows.

The combination allows service providers and content originators to reduce total cost of ownership and create efficient IP‐based workflows built on SD‐WAN and NFV frameworks. Said Dave Herfert, VP, sales, Aperi, “The paradigm shift away from fixed, capex‐intensive solutions towards flexible, pay‐as‐you‐grow licensing is what customers are demanding from their technology partners.”

He added, “Working closely with Dimetis to orchestrate truly native live IP video applications, especially ones that rely on network elasticity and speed, will provide our customers with enormous benefits. This enables them to improve their existing workflows or build new greenfield sites that help them take advantage of new business models and distribution schemes.”

Kai Bechtold, head of global sales and marketing, Dimetis, contributed, “Together, we intend to enable the transition from dedicated hardware‐dependent network designs towards open, standards‐based IP networking, helping broadcasters and communication service providers gain the benefits of a software‐defined and commercial off‐the‐shelf network migration. Combining the Dimetis OpsNGN solution with the Aperi top‐tier virtualized, native live IP media platform, we can help our customers efficiently scale network provisioning faster and drive new revenue channels.”
