ASPEN, Adaptive Sample Picture ENcapsulation, has been developed as an open framework to build flexible, scalable, and highly efficient IP facilities. ASPEN allows for video, audio and metadata to be on individual IP multicast streams to provide broadcasters complete flexibility for transport, production, and playout applications.

The ASPEN Community was announced at IBC 2015 and has been rapidly growing from its initial members which included Abekas, ChryonHego, Discovery Communications, Game Creek Video, Hitachi, NEP Group, PacketStorm, Ross Video, Sony, Tektronix, Time Warner Cable SportsNet, Vizrt. The latest company to join the community is Matrox Video.

In related news, Evertz Technologies has announced that Macnica Americas has become a member of the ASPEN Community. "With the transition from SDI to IP as a major initiative in the industry, the ASPEN Community is providing the leadership for a common open framework for building IP facilities.The addition of Macnica Americas brings an experienced voice to the Community,” said Mo Goyal, co-chairperson of the ASPEN Community.

With the strong industry interest regarding ASPEN, the ASPEN Community website will act as an information portal to keep the industry updated on the progress of ASPEN development and deployment.
