Aspera Showcased High-Speed Transfer Innovations at NAB in New York

At NAB Show New York showcased the latest versions of its high-speed file transfer software and workflow automation solutions for the broadcast and media industries.

The entire suite of Aspera products, On Demand Offerings and Aspera SDK will be on display, including:

FASPStream for Live Event Streaming – A new open turnkey video transport solution and winner of this year’s HPA Engineering Excellence Award, FASPStream enables broadcast-quality live streaming over commodity Internet networks, allowing users to stream media globally with glitch-free playout and negligible start-up time. Building on the efficiency of the FASP® protocol, the solution outperforms forward error correction over UDP and CDNs by maintaining stream quality over distance without start-up delay. An ideal solution to eliminate expensive and limited satellite-based backhaul, transport, and distribution, FASPStream allows video from anywhere to everywhere using low-cost Internet. At NAB Show New York, FASPStream demonstrations will feature a live video stream from Royal Caribbean ship, Harmony of the Seas®.

Aspera Files SaaS – Aspera’s multi-tenant SaaS solution for sharing large files and data sets directly from cloud and on-premise storage has over 20 new features and APIs across the platform for third-party collaboration, fine-grained privacy controls, Enterprise Single Sign-on, Media Preview Carousels for managing large numbers of videos and photos, and instant provisioning of shared folders on any third- party cloud or on-premises storage.

Aspera recently introduced a flexible new pay-as-you-go option in addition to annual pre-committed volume plans that can be purchased directly from the new Aspera Store online. Users can view all transfer usage for Aspera Files and On Demand plans in the new Aspera Usage Portal.

Aspera Orchestrator 2.6 - Now with over 150 third-party plug-ins, Orchestrator 2.6, Aspera’s comprehensive workflow orchestration platform, adds new plugins for Dalet, Xytech, SGL FlashNet, Marquis, Emotion, ShowMgr, ARRIS CMM, DATDV, Snell, Fortium, Ateme, Minnetonka, MOG, and Baton.
