Telestream And IBM Aspera Offer Remote Live Video Production

Telestream and IBM’s Aspera have inked a solution for high-speed capture and production of live video from remote locations for faster production turnaround. Telestream Vantage and Aspera’s FASPStream plus Telestream’s Lightspeed Live Capture media processing platform to enable production teams to work on live video feeds from remote locations in near real time.

“Creative teams can now begin working on a live capture feed delivered from a remote location (across the country or around the world) while the event is taking place, without waiting for the entire file to be first written to disk and then transferred,” said Paul Turner, vp of Enterprise Products at Telestream. “Transcoding, packaging, editing and other downstream workflows can start immediately, significantly shortening the production cycle and increasing the value of the produced content. The end-point can have a range of hosting environments, including centralized on-premises, private or public cloud and the streams can be written to multiple locations concurrently to aid in redundancy and business continuity.

“This integration between Telestream and Aspera enables high-speed delivery of media content over the public, unmanaged internet,” said Turner. “The solution revolutionizes how media companies can approach production, capture, and post-production workflows by giving them more flexibility in the location of hardware, software and personnel.”

“Demand for live content delivery is exploding, as are expectations around the quality of the viewer experience,” said Mike Flathers, CTO of the IBM Aspera. “Live video production teams have long been waiting for a cost-effective solution that would finally enable timely production workflows. We are excited about the possibilities Vantage powered by Aspera is opening up for event organizers and producers and content owners to connect with worldwide audiences in new innovative and immersive ways.”
