WELCOME TO IBC2014

Welcome to the special IBC edition of the Aspera FASP Times. IBC is just around the corner, and the Aspera team is thrilled to be showcasing our new high-speed data transfer and automation solutions. Visit us in Hall 7, Stand G30, where we will be unveiling a number of exciting advancements to our product suite and offering live demonstrations of our software. A few highlights include:

  • The new Auto-Scale transfer platform that automatically scales and expands transfer capacity of Aspera server software in the cloud to adapt to unpredictable spikes in activity and ensure the most efficient utilization of your cloud resources,
  • New FASPStream APIs, allowing media applications to transport live video and data feeds over global Internet WANs in real-time with predictable speeds, enabling live and near live production on remote cloud systems, such as scale-out video processing, transcoding and distribution,
  • The latest version of Aspera Orchestrator offering inline file format validation workflows for companies that are delivering and exchanging ADI (CableLabs) and DPP (UK DPP Standard) packaged media,
  • The expanded Aspera Collaboration Suite for big data and media featuring Aspera Drive for OSX, Android and iOS, the new Aspera App for Microsoft SharePoint and the latest Faspex and Shares Web applications.

If you would like to meet with a member of our team during the show, please book a meeting. We also encourage you to explore our comprehensive online preview, which includes up-to-date product information and our full schedule of events at IBC. We look forward to seeing you next week in Amsterdam.
