Aspera, Vidispine team up on content management
Aspera and Vidispine have integrated their respective products to create a system to rapidly create, transfer, manage, store and process audio-visual content.
There are bottlenecks inherent in legacy systems used to create, transfer, manage, store and process audio-visual content, the two companies explained.
Aspera specializes in easing and greatly accelerating the transfer of enormous files, including video. Vidispine has developed a software-based media asset management (MAM) system. The two are integrating the former’s high-speed fasp transfer SKD and Vidispine’s API MAM platform.
Aspera’s fasp transport supports all data, infrastructure and storage types, regardless of location, and transfers the largest files with maximum speed, regardless of network conditions.
Vidispine’s MAM system enables users to find and work with any type of media, from any repository, in any type of editor, with anyone, anywhere.
The combination delivers a complete media asset management backbone with all of the features and capabilities necessary to support the most complex workflows with flexibility and ease, the two said.
“Vidispine’s platform allows users to build and implement structured workflows for remote content repositories that seamlessly manage file formats and resolutions,” said Erik Åhlin, CEO of Vidispine. “Integrating Aspera high-speed transport extends our platform, allowing our customers to easily deploy their content anywhere it’s needed.”
Aspera’s high-speed transport platform, with a rich set of APIs, can be embedded into any application or platform to deliver fast and secure transfers of file-based content and metadata over the wide area network. The platform SDK includes server-side components, Web applications, and mobile options enabling transfer to and from virtually any device.
