Aperi, a provider of virtualized media production, today announced that its Live IP media virtualization platform and software product portfolio has been acquired by Net Insight AB, a global specialist in media networks and resource optimization.
“The Aperi product line, with its unique low-latency V-Stack hypervisor and open App/microservices store concept, will benefit from Net Insight’s global leadership, 20 plus years’ experience in media networking and strong development track record,” says Joop Janssen, CEO of Aperi. “I’m very happy that the original vision of Aperi’s founders — Eugene and Brian Keane — and the engineering team will not only move forward, but further prosper within the larger Net Insight group.”
“By adding the Aperi products to our portfolio, we complement and strengthen our offering. We share the Aperi product vision of an open and virtualized software architecture and are excited to welcome the team of skilled engineers to Net Insight and to continue supporting existing and new Aperi customers,” says Ulrik Rohne, VP media networks at Net Insight.
Thousands of Aperi microservers are used each day in the live production and transport of sports content, including 4K, around the globe. Aperi’s technology lets service providers, content owners, rights holders and broadcasters work faster, more efficiently and at scale for low-cost and agile remote production. The combination of the true virtualization that it’s able to offer, along with its unique V-Stack media hypervisor-based approach, delivers low-latency media processing for both centralized and de-centralized media networks.
