FOXTEL

Breakthrough workflow automation platform

FOXTEL implements the Aspera Orchestrator as the core of its new contribution file delivery system

 

Cable, satellite and IPTV service provider FOXTEL is Australia’s largest subscription television provider, delivering more than 200 channels to over 1.63 million homes. As the media and entertainment industry began to move away from tape-based workflows to digital assets, FOXTEL needed a more efficient way to move their content to various locations on their supply chain.

After an evaluation of technologies and close collaboration, FOXTEL chose Aspera to deliver a solution comprised of several software modules, including the Aspera Orchestrator workflow automation platform as the core of its new contribution file delivery system. Maximizing usage of bandwidth, Aspera experts designed a cost-effective and scalable workflow architecture to meet FOXTEL’s specific needs.

The deployed system has been successful in reducing the burden on FOXTEL human resources due to automation, and it allows for the budgeting of bandwidth usage based on network capacity, as well as the need to prioritize and expedite the reception of the most urgent files. The Aspera Console, a browser-based centralized management application, not only empowers automated file transfers, but it provides reports which can be organized, sorted and filtered by virtually any transfer attribute (paths, IPs, status, etc.).

“With superior file transfer technology and its dynamic and flexible Orchestrator workflow management platform that makes it simple to integrate third-party processing tools, Aspera was the clear choice for us,” said Adam Scott, Director Broadcast Operations at FOXTEL Systems.
