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®.
