CEO and co-founder Michelle Munson to share how high-speed transport and automation are bridging the technology gap for new media workflows EMERYVILLE, Calif., 21 August 2013— At IBC 2013 (stand 7.K30), Aspera (http://www.asperasoft.com/), Inc., creators of next-generation software technologies that move the world’s data at maximum speed, will showcase high-speed data transfer and automation solutions, all part of its expansive software portfolio for deployment on premise, on the cloud, or in combination.
On Saturday, September 14 (11am - 12.30pm), Aspera CEO and co-founder Michelle Munson will discuss new media workflows that require end-to-end, customized and automated operations, often with a combination of cloud and on-premise storage, and powered by network transfer of large media file sets (the ultimate "big data"). She will share how new infrastructure-agnostic high speed transport and workflow automation technologies fill the technology gap, and are enabling these new workflows by allowing digital content to be securely and practically ingested, accessed, transcoded, distributed and archived regardless of storage type, network distance, and bandwidth conditions.
In conjunction with BT Sports, Aspera will also participate in a Workflow Solutions session on Friday, September 13 (1:00pm). With the arrival of BT Sports’ new sports channels and completion of their new studio complex in the former London 2012 Olympic International Broadcasting Centre, the session will explore BT’s use of Aspera's high-speed transfer technology, and how close collaboration culminated in full file-based replication between BT’s new studio facility and the BT Tower in central London. The solution delivered full redundancy, high-speed performance and multiple, fully automated file -based workflows.
Prior to the show opening, Andrea Di Muzio, Director of Professional Services at Aspera, will join the “IBC Preview: Cloud-based workflows” panel at the SVG Sports Production Summit, taking place at 5pm on September 12 at Beurs Van Berlange in Amsterdam.
IBC attendees are cordially invited to join two special networking events on the Aspera booth. The first taking place on Saturday, September 14, is to join the Aspera team for cocktails and hors -d’oeuvres, and to network with the broadcast and digital media community. This will take place at 5:30pm on the Aspera booth 7.K30. Then on Sunday, September 15 there will be an Akamai-sponsored cocktail reception at 5:30pm giving guests the opportunity to meet with key Akamai representatives and learn how Akamai is leveraging Aspera technology for their cloud-based storage and workflow solutions.
The entire suite of high-speed file transfer software will be available for product demonstrations on stand 7.K30:
