Aspera High-Speed Upload for Kaltura

FASP®-enabled high-speed ingest of large digital media files to Kaltura's video platform

Kaltura is a recognized leader in Over the Top TV and in the Online Video Platform, Education Video Platform, and Enterprise Video Platform markets that engages hundreds of millions of viewers at home, in work, and at school. The Kaltura Management Console (KMC) is a rich-media management system that enables users to ingest, manage, publish, distribute, monetize and analyze media – all in one intuitive interface. Kaltura has added a high-speed upload option to its Kaltura Management Console (KMC) based on Aspera's patented  Fast, Adaptive Secure Protocol (FASP®) transport technology. 

The Aspera High-Speed Upload for Kaltura enables integrated, high-speed ingest of large digital media files to Kaltura's video platform. With the FASP transfer technology, this option delivers maximum transfer throughput independent of distance and network conditions, typically achieving speed improvements in the range of 10 to 100 times faster than standard TCP-based transfers such as FTP and HTTP, with end-to-end security and exceptional bandwidth control. 

Joint Feature Highlights:

  • Aspera's seamless integration with Kaltura's Drop Folders' ingestion service preserves the Kaltura workflow
  • Upload video and metadata over wide area network (WAN) at line speed, regardless of distance, fully utilizing the available bandwidth.
  • Allows customers to easily initiate high-speed transfers and monitor real-time progress directly from Kaltura Management Console
  • Achieves high-speed, robust and reliable transfers with guaranteed predictable delivery times 

Description

By adding a high-speed upload option to its Kaltura Management Console (KMC) using Aspera's high-speed transfer technology, Kaltura ensures customers are able to upload their large video files at maximum speed and with exceptional bandwidth control and built-in security features. 

The Aspera High-Speed Upload option is used by content administrators that upload videos to their Kaltura storage and content management console. From there, the content can be published on any website or mobile application. It is particularly useful for large production houses, media companies and news producers that ingest high quality, long-form source files or time sensitive content on a regular basis.

Kaltura's high-speed upload option is enabled by the Aspera Connect Server hosted and managed in Kaltura Data Centers. It is integrated with Kaltura's Drop Folders' ingestion service in a similar way to the usual ingestion flow of uploading files to a Drop Folder hosted in Kaltura.
