Aspera Mobile iOS Uploader

The Aspera Mobile Uploader brings industry-leading, patented Aspera high-speed file transfer to the iPhone and iPad.

Based on Aspera’s fasp-AIR™ transport core, the Aspera Mobile Uploader achieves transfer speeds up to 100X faster than traditional cellular technologies, maximizing the utilization of available connection bandwidth and breaking the size barrier for the files that can be transmitted from iOS devices. It lets you upload photos or videos from the media library on your iPhone or iPad, or directly from your iPhone’s camera to mobile-enabled Aspera transfer servers (including Aspera On-Demand for Amazon Web Services).

Free-of-charge and available from the Apple App Store, the Aspera Mobile Uploader is the ideal solution for mobile field gathering of still and video media, with immediate, high-performance wireless transfer to an Aspera server.

Use Cases

Remote content submissions

Enable remote news teams to submit content via inexpensive iOS devices, without the need to send out news trucks with expensive and cumbersome satellite transmission equipment. Let “citizen journalists” provide up-to-date footage of unfolding events in real time for immediate playout or distribution.
