IBM Aspera is showcasing advancements to its Streaming for Video Solution. Building on the success of its FASPStream protocol, Aspera continues to disrupt the status quo with exciting new capabilities. This latest evolution enables live and near-live video streaming at the highest quality with no added latency over commodity internet with low-touch deployment and centralized administration using existing video infrastructure.
Aspera Streaming for Video, powered by FASPStream enables centralized, real-time production of high bit-rate programming, eliminating the need to co-locate costly production staff at remote venues. It also supports in-line transcoding, packaging and delivery to accelerate live video delivery and facilitates open file workflows for real-time editing and production. By lowering the production costs for all kinds of events, especially tier 2 and tier 3 events, broadcasters can create and deliver new content targeting new audiences.
Stream Manager — Automatically discovers Aspera FASPStream-enabled devices on a network, making deployment, configuration and management amazingly simple. It reduces the cost and effort of traditional setup at the steam origin (e.g. remote venues) while increasing visibility and control at the point of production (e.g. broadcast center). It also provides a new, easy-to-use interface that enables administrators to control remote devices, create and manage multiple streams, as well as view device and stream status.
Other enhancements include multiple multicast streams that can now concurrently transfer to the same multicast IP address or multicast port, and full support for IBM Aspera Proxy to enable secure streaming transport over public Internet in firewall-controlled environments.
