Avid Integrates Aspera FASP

Avid has integrated Aspera FASP into Interplay | MAM to enable secure and high speed treansfer of large files.

“Given the superior performance and results Avid has experienced with prior Aspera FASP use cases, we felt this integration would enable Interplay | MAM to allow customers to seamlessly move their media assets quickly and reliably without fail,” said Dana Ruzicka, vp and chief product officer at Avid. “With Aspera, we gain a great deal of confidence that our customers can quickly move media assets globally with little-to-no interruption in their workflow.”

Within the MediaCentral UX user interface, the common user experience of the Avid MediaCentral, users can initiate high-speed file transfers between local and remote systems accessible to in-house and remote contributors, or initiate an Interplay | MAM Export to transfer any MAM asset to a target system. End users or operators can easily monitor any Aspera transfer jobs in MediaCentral | UX. All Aspera encryption, privacy and bandwidth control capabilities are fully supported.

“Avid’s customers are top broadcast, news, and post-production facilities that operate on tight deadlines and need to exchange and distribute content immediately, without delay,” said John Wastcoat, Aspera VP of business development. “Aspera makes life a little easier for them by alleviating the pain points experienced with traditional transfer protocols – namely speed and reliability problems – and providing fast, dependable and highly secure transfers of large media files.”
