IBC2014 RECAP

IBC2014 was a tremendous event, and we appreciate everyone who visited with us to review our latest innovations and offerings.

We unveiled new versions and updates to our entire suite of high-speed transfer software. 

  • Aspera On Demand Auto-Scaler: Automatically spins up servers to match the actual transfer capacity with the transfer demand in real time, based on user-defined criteria, and de-provision servers as transfer demand diminishes.
  • FASPStream APIs: Allow 3rd party applications to use Aspera FASP for real-time video and data transmission.
  • Drive for OS X 1.1: Browse, send, receive and sync large files and data sets directly from the Mac Finder.
  • "a4": The new transfer engine for ultra high speed transfer of large sets of small files over the most difficult WAN conditions.
  • You can find more details on the Aspera IBC recap page or in the What's New PDF

Aspera Co-founder and CEO Michelle Munson discussed the impact of new players in media and presented the latest innovations built on the FASP high-speed transfer platform.
