Aspera Selects as Supplier for the 65th Berlin International Film Festival

IBM announced that Aspera has been selected as an official supplier for the 65th Berlin International Film Festival, taking place on February 5 to February 15 of 2015. The need to efficiently and securely handle the increased digital file sizes of 4K films significantly contributed to the festival organizers choosing Aspera Shares. The solution enables high-speed, file-based delivery of feature-length films from participants directly to the Berlinale data centre in Berlin. With film files of up to 250GB each, the growing demand to ingest and share large files digitally from multiple locations across the globe drove the need for faster transfer speeds, improved reliability, and a streamlined digital workflow. With Aspera Shares, the organizers can use their full 10GB fiber connection to receive digital cinema package (DCP) files, regardless of distance and network conditions.

With the combination of the file transfer solutions from Aspera and Akamai's NetStorage cloud-based storage platform, Sky has realized an increase in file upload speed by up to 650%. Integrated directly into Akamai's NetStorage cloud-based online storage platform, the Aspera upload acceleration option provides a significantly faster means for Sky to upload content regardless of file size or geographic distance.
