Aspera High-speed File Transfers for Avid Interplay | MAM


Avid, a media technology leader and creator of the Avid Everywhere vision and Avid MediaCentral Platform, addresses the production needs of the media industry, with solutions ranging from industry-leading creative tools, to ingest, collaboration and management systems, and high-performance storage and delivery solutions. As a cornerstone of Avid’s broad offerings, Interplay | MAM is a comprehensive system trusted by top broadcast, news, and post-production facilities to manage the entire content lifecycle

For large media transfers over wide area networks (WANs) between systems and contributors located hundreds or thousands of miles apart, Avid needed a joint partner solution to deliver the best available file transfer performance to meet the time-critical demands of its customers. To cater to worldwide audiences who demand faster access to higher quality content, Avid integrated Aspera FASP high-speed transfer technology to enable more complex and geographically dispersed production workflows.

Joint Feature Highlights:

  • Aspera FASP is deeply integrated with Avid Interplay | MAM to seamlessly provide high-speed file transfer capabilities.
  • Access to production and archived media assets stored across multiple local and remote systems for every in-house and remote contributor.
  • Enables an end user or an operator to centrally monitor the Aspera transfer jobs in Avid MediaCentral | UX with the deep API-based integration.


Using Avid’s powerful, highly scalable, and fully customizable media asset manager, Avid customers can make production and archived media assets—stored across multiple local and remote Interplay | MAM systems—accessible to every in-house and remote contributor, an essential requirement for organizations to achieve success in an ever-changing media landscape.

By enabling Interplay | MAM with the new Aspera File Acceleration Integration kit, Avid customers can connect their existing or new Aspera Enterprise Server or Point-to-Point Clients and easily extend high-speed file transfer capabilities to any BPM process running within the Interplay | MAM orchestration engine. 

The deep API-based integration ensures the entire rich set of high-speed file transfer features available with Aspera FASP are supported and can be used directly within Interplay | MAM for a completely seamless user experience. End users and operators can easily monitor any Aspera transfer job in Avid MediaCentral | UX, the common front-end user interface of the Avid MediaCentral Platform. Users can also initiate high-speed file transfers between local and remote systems accessible to in-house and remote contributors, or initiate an Interplay | MAM Export to transfer any Interplay | MAM asset to a target system. All Aspera encryption, privacy and bandwidth control capabilities are fully supported.
