The leader in next-generation video and data transport technologies, Aspera has implemented advanced transport and workflow solutions for broadcasters and media companies throughout Asia, including Amana/Polygon, Arirang TV, Astro, Australian Broadcasting Company, BestTV, Cinema Cloud, CJ PowerCast, Encompass Digital Media, Foxtel, MediaCorp, MTV Singapore, PCCW, Phoenix TV, SBS, Singtel, Telstra, Vietnam Television, Viki, and Weta Digital.

On Thursday 4 June, Munson will give a presentation on “End-to-end live streaming for second screen combining multi-camera capture, high-speed transport, and cloud video processing” as part of the Cloud Distribution & Network Virtualization Track. Munson will examine revolutionary cloud-based content delivery workflows that address the growing demand for coverage of international sporting events, the broadcasting challenge of distributing content and on-demand transcoding for second screens.

At booth #5G4-08, Aspera will showcase Aspera Files, a new SaaS offering for global media sharing built on the next generation of its FASP software platform. With Aspera Files, any organization small to large can establish a branded web-based presence for fast, easy and secure exchange and delivery of any size file-based media between end users across separate organizations, combining multiple storage platforms. Content can be stored and easily accessed in multiple cloud and on-premise storage systems, and sharing between users and trusted organizations is as easy as drag-and-drop regardless of where the content is located.

“The need to conveniently ingest, exchange, and distribute file-based digital media content quickly, securely, and with the scale-up capacity of cloud platforms is greater than ever,” said Munson. “Media companies throughout Asia are creating more high-resolution content and data sets than ever, with increasingly shorter turnaround times in highly competitive markets that also depend upon secure inter-company collaboration. Aspera Files solves all of the major barriers of the file exchange problem in this environment.”

Aspera will also showcase multiple breakthrough capabilities and advanced features powered by the next generation of FASP, allowing media enterprises of all sizes to meet variable data movement demands in real time with speed, control, security and ease, directly to cloud and on-premise storage.
