Aspera Software for Elemental Video Processing

HIgh-Speed media transfer into and out of elemental's Video processing platform

Elemental offers an integrated solution with Aspera FASP technology to enable high-speed transfer of media assets in a file-based video processing workflow. Aspera software dramatically accelerates file transfer in both point-to-point workflows and workflows to and from the cloud, providing faster and more secure access to Elemental management and video processing capabilities. With native support for the Aspera FASP file transfer protocol, Elemental gives operators the ability to control, automate and secure high-speed file transfer and significantly reduce the time required to make premium video content available for delivery.

Joint Feature Highlights:

  • Integration with Aspera FASP to optimize file transfers at every point in the video processing workflow
  • Scale out video processing resources in the cloud with reduced barriers to entry
  • Eliminate data transfer bottlenecks inherent to large file uploads
  • Transfer valuable assets securely at high-speed regardless of size, distance, or network conditions using Aspera FASP technology

Description

Elemental provides a complete line of software-defined video processing solutions for live and file-based workflows. For file-based transcoding, Elemental software is ideal for large-scale video applications such as content library conversion and creation of studio-quality assets. In an Elemental workflow, file-based video processing, delivery and management can be deployed on-premise in data centers, in a virtualized environment or in cloud locations spanning the globe. Elemental video processing can also be deployed in a hybrid ground-to-cloud model by coupling dedicated appliances with elastic cloud-based resources, allowing for seamless management of fluctuations in video processing demand.

In any Elemental deployment, server management software is capable of directing content that leverages Aspera FASP high-speed file transfer technology. Together, Elemental and Aspera provide a faster end-to-end workflow for video processing. In a point-to-point model, Elemental video processing and management software reduce transcoding and transport time for large-scale video assets, making media transfer to multiple geographies possible.

In any Elemental deployment, server management software is capable of directing content that leverages high-speed file transfer technology from Aspera. In a point-to-point model, Elemental video processing and management software together reduce transcoding and transport time for large-scale video assets, making media transfer to multiple geographies possible. In a ground-to-cloud (aka cloud bursting) model, Elemental management nodes can be configured to move overflow content to the cloud based on an operator-defined set of criteria. In a common scenario, when resources on the ground are saturated, Elemental directs overflow video processing to server instances in the cloud via Aspera high-speed file transfer.
