Aspera Drives Next-Generation Media Asset Management Systems

CJ Powercast has deployed solutions from Aspera for worldwide file transfers, management, and automation

 

A multifaceted Korean media and entertainment organization, CJ PowerCast is the industry leader in high-quality digital broadcasting services specializing in areas such as movies, sports, music, animation, lifestyle, and documentaries. The company operates a diverse range of cable, satellite and IPTV channels as well as regional TV stations. Adding to their reputation as one of the best global media companies, CJ PowerCast also offers an extensive range of post-production, digital advertising and content management services.

Korea’s CJ PowerCast has chosen and deployed Aspera’s high-performance fasp™ transport and management technologies to automate and administer their digital asset systems.

To satisfy its vast requirements for file transfer and digital asset automation, CJ PowerCast selected the web-based Aspera Connect Server and Aspera Console management platform. They have been integrated into CJ PowerCast’s systems and portals using Aspera’s robust set of APIs to facilitate mission critical media asset exchange with partners in Asia, Europe and North America.

“We were first interested in Aspera because so many of our media partners already have large Aspera deployments and swear by the technology,” said CJ PowerCast’s senior research manager, Jaemin Hwang. “With over 1600 customers worldwide we knew that Aspera had an excellent reputation. But after conducting our proof of concept tests, we realized the reasons why: bulletproof security, perfect bandwidth utilization, and open APIs that let us quickly adapt fasp and the Aspera Connect Server into our existing infrastructure and live systems to run our business more efficiently.”
