High-speed content transfer and management

MediaCorp uses Aspera to quickly and efficiently transfer real-time news stories and content throughout its global media distribution network

 

MediaCorp, Singapore’s leading media company, has deployed Aspera’s high-speed transfer platform as the core to their new digital asset distribution infrastructure.

Operating 7 television and 13 radio channels, MediaCorp offers the most complete range of platforms, spanning television, radio, newspapers, magazines, movies, digital and out-of-home media. MediaCorp needed a flexible platform for the real-time collection and distribution of global news stories, as well as a means to quickly and efficiently transfer content with their global media distribution network.

The web-based Aspera Connect Server file transfer software was selected to provide journalists with a simple, self-installing browser plug-in that initiates high speed transfers from the field to MediaCorp headquarters, as well enable server to server media transfers with the 1700+ customer Aspera ecosystem that includes MediaCorp collaborators and partners. Additionally, the Aspera Console was chosen for centralized monitoring, management, and reporting of the MediaCorp corporate-wide Aspera transfers. MediaCorp administrators use the extensive features to initiate ad-hoc transfers, create specific scheduled transfers, as well as provide delivery confirmation all from one central web interface.
