HYBRID MULTICLOUD WORKFLOW AUTOMATION

SECURE EXCHANGE OF MEDIA ASSETS

Add another layer of security to the exchange of media assets using blockchain and digital watermarking.

  • Tap into the open source framework created by a network of supply chain partners to build a blockchain-based distributed ledger that creates an immutable chain of custody for your content.
  • Add Irdeto digital watermarking technology to your content directly from Aspera on Cloud. 

CLOUD-NATIVE ARCHITECTURE

Transfer, stream, sync, and share your content using Aspera's containerized, scalable software optimized to run on Red Hat OpenShift. 

  • The Aspera High-Speed Transfer Server is now certified to run on Red Hat OpenShift and has been included in the IBM Cloud Pak for Integration, a complete solution for hybrid cloud integration.

UPCOMING WEBINAR: AUTOMATED MEDIA WORKFLOWS IN THE CLOUD

Across media and entertainment, more organizations are moving to modern, cloud-based applications to meet growing demands for scale and flexibility. As a complement to the scale and efficiency of high-volume cloud-based IT operations, process automation can greatly streamline media workflows.

Join us on Tuesday, 3 September at 7:30 am PDT / 3:30 pm GMT for an IBC365 webinar to learn how the new Automation functionality available in IBM Aspera on Cloud can transform routine processes. BASE Media Cloud will join IBM Aspera to describe purpose-built cloud workflows for digital media companies, including automated quality control and content distribution.
