Sportradar Selects Aspera to Ensure Reliable Distribution of Live Streams Globally

Reduces end-to-end delay to less than five seconds with no buffering with Aspera FASPStream


Sportradar with headquarters in St. Gallen, Switzerland is an international company that collects and analyzes sports data and digital content including live results and statistics, and offers white-label digital sports content solutions for bookmakers, sports federations and media companies worldwide.

Sportradar faced growing demand for increasingly higher quality streams over IP in real-time, which was further complicated by the need to stream contributed video over longer distances and with encryption, primarily from Asia to Europe and between Asia and Australia. It needed a fail safe solution that would ensure fast and reliable transmission of its live content.

Sportradar deployed Aspera FASPStream, built on Aspera’s patented FASP® bulk data protocol to guarantee the timely delivery of live high-resolution, broadcast-quality video by fully utilizing available bandwidth to ensure glitch-free play out and negligible start-up time, regardless of distance or network conditions. Aspera FASPStream is the first open video transport solution that is capable of high quality, live streaming over commodity Internet WANs.

Now Sportradar is able to ensure that live video streams and data are delivered with less than five seconds of delay, which is especially critical in the sports gambling industry. Additionally, all content delivered with FASPStream is encrypted in transit with tight user access controls using standard public/private key authentication to prevent unauthorized access to live streams from the venues. In addition, Aspera FASPStream enables Sportradar to quickly test and evaluate new live streams and other content providers, which allows them to more easily expand their growing library of premium quality content received from all over the world.
