Viaplay

Fast media file transfers for accelerated streaming

Viaplay chooses Aspera to accelerate ingest of files for its streaming service

 

Viaplay, Scandinavia’s leading online service for TV, film and sport, has selected Aspera Console and Aspera Connect Server software to provide next-generation file transfer for the ingest of its inbound files.

Viaplay is part of the international entertainment broadcasting group, Modern Times Group. The service provides its subscribers with thousands of movies, TV series and world-class sports events - such as the Premier League, Champions League and NHL. It enables access to programming everywhere and at any time via PC, smartphones, tablets, smart TVs and set-top boxes.

Viaplay receives master files from vendors around the world - these are ingested and transcoded for all its platforms before delivery. With huge volumes of data being handled on a continuous basis and via multiple internet connected devices, the company needed to implement a solution that could effectively and reliably deliver the content to CDNs.
