Aspera, Inc. Key Developments

Weta Workshop Expands Aspera Deployment to Handle Large 3D and Video File Transfers for Concept Design and Practical Effects

IBM announced that Weta Workshop has upgraded and expanded its implementation of high-speed transfer software from Aspera, an IBM company, to meet growing demand for high-volume transfers of large 2D and 3D design and video files. By upgrading, Weta Workshop can now transfer multiple large 3D design or video files that often exceed 7 to 8 GB each in under an hour. The speed of delivery is particularly important when the Workshop needs to send alterations to production teams on set; Aspera enables the team to share 3D design files quickly and reliably with clients anywhere in the world, guaranteeing the files are always delivered on time. The initial decision to deploy Aspera’s high-speed file transfer technology came after a discussion with the heads of technology at sister company Weta Digital – an early adopter that has used Aspera since 2005 as a reliable way to transfer large data files that are at the core of the visual effects business.

Aspera Unveils New Aspera FASPStream Software for Live and Near-Live Streaming of Broadcast-quality Video Content Over IP Networks with Low Start-up Delays and Glitch-free Experiences

IBM announced at the 2016 NABShow that Aspera, an IBM company, is unveiling Aspera FASPStream, a new turnkey application software line designed to enable live streaming of broadcast-quality video globally over commodity Internet networks with glitch-free playout and negligible start-up time – reducing the need for expensive and limited satellite-based backhaul, transport and distribution. Aspera's FASPStream software line represents the first open video transport solution that is capable of high-quality, live streaming over commodity Internet WANs. Built from the ground up by Aspera, the software utilizes the FASP® bulk data protocol to transport any live video source (local multicast, unicast UDP, TCP, or growing file source) and provides timely arrival of live video and data independent of network round-trip delay and packet loss. Less than five seconds of start-up delay is required for 50 Mbps video streams transported over 250 milliseconds round-trip latency and 3% packet loss, sufficient for 4K streaming between continents. At NAB 2016, Aspera will demonstrate the FASPStream solution with the transport of three live camera streams from South Africa, China and New York, USA to the Aspera booth for live decode and broadcast playout, as well as IP-based playout through local desktop media players.

Interra Systems Adds Aspera High-Speed Transfer Technology to Baton™

IBM announced that Interra Systems has integrated high-speed transfer technology from Aspera. The AsperaFASP® integration speeds their media workflows and gives Baton users greater flexibility and control during critical workflow stages. As the security of Baton customers’ business-critical media files is exceedingly important, Aspera transfers are designed with an advanced security model to protect user data, including modern cryptographic standards such as AES-128 for on-the-fly data encryption. To enable this improved media validation capability, Interra Systems tightly integrated Aspera’s FASPStream, a bulk data byte-stream transfer technology that enables the transfer of any stream of bytes as they are being created or captured, and can allow access to portions of a file in memory during the transfer process rather than waiting for the entire file to be written to disk. Previously, files had to be fully inspected before transmission over the network and then inspected again after all files were fully received at the target site. Using FASPStream allows Baton users to perform a comprehensive Quality Check (QC) on the incoming file, validating a wide range of media formats during the transmission and reception process, and dramatically improving overall speed and efficiency.
