SEE WHAT'S NEW AT NAB

At this year’s NAB show, Aspera will introduce an extensive set of product updates designed to enable reliable movement of media content with ever increasing speed. New core performance enhancements bring multi-Gbps transfer speeds to both public and private cloud environments. We will also be previewing a breadth of new capabilities in Aspera on Cloud and Aspera Streaming for Video.

See the highlights below, and visit our What's New Spring 2019 page to get all the details

DELIVERING ENHANCED PERFORMANCE ACROSS THE PLATFORM

  • Release of the first microservices-based version of the Aspera High-Speed Transfer Server on IBM Cloud Private.

FACILITATING CLOUD-BASED WORKFLOWS

  • New automation functionality coming soon to Aspera on Cloud enables:
    • users to quickly build and configure event-driven transfer workflows using an easy-to-use graphical workflow designer tool and
    • organizations to streamline content delivery workflows by triggering transfers with an action such as a submission to a shared inbox or folder, or an API call, and generate notifications.
  • Updates to the Activity app in Aspera on Cloud to deliver comprehensive monitoring of transfer events, and significant visualization enhancements.
  • A preview of Aspera on Cloud integrated with IBM Hyperledger, which provides an additional layer of security through the use of blockchain technology to enable a trusted exchange of high-value assets.

EXPANDING THE ACCESSIBILITY OF ASPERA STREAMING

  • A preview of new Aspera Streaming for Video capabilities in a closed beta release that enables full bi-directional communication that allows for flexible substitution for TCP across a variety of deployment environments.
