MediaBeacon Integrates with Aspera FASP

High-Speed Asset Transfer using Aspera FASP into and out of MediaBeacon’s DAM solution


MediaBeacon is an enterprise-class Digital Asset Management (DAM) platform for searching, tagging, and manipulating assets from anywhere in the world.  MediaBeacon's enterprise search engine and automated workflows are perfectly suited for managing all media and document types in single or distributed high-availability environments. MediaBeacon’s flexible interface is integrated with Aspera FASP technology, enabling users to upload and download assets at high-speed from the MediaBeacon web interface. The integration combines the power of MediaBeacon’s search tools with Aspera’s high-speed file transfer ability to enable users to find and immediately access large media assets over the web.

Joint Feature Highlights:

  • Store assets anywhere in the world and access them using MediaBeacon’s web interface.
  • Transfer assets at high speed using Aspera FASP directly within the web interface to upload or download media assets.
  • Increase productivity by rapidly finding assets and retrieving them at maximum speed.


MediaBeacon’s enterprise digital asset management (DAM) solutions are used by customers to manage all kinds of rich media in a single site or across multiple, distributed locations with granular security and high availability. MediaBeacon's widget-based interface brings the desktop experience to the browser, allowing the creation of powerful DAM-centric web sites that support customer-centric workflows using a simple drag-and-drop interface.

By adding Aspera FASP technology, MediaBeacon’s platform is able to support high-speed transfer of media assets throughout the globe on customers’ existing networks. Assets can be uploaded or downloaded securely into or out of MediaBeacon’s DAM at maximum speed, regardless of file sizes or distance.

MediaBeacon’s customers can use the lightweight, install-on-demand Aspera Connect web browser plug-in that seamlessly integrates with the browser to enable high-speed transfer of large files.  The Aspera Connect web browser plug-in also provides real-time transfer monitoring and control to enable users to adjust the bandwidth usage of individual transfers, if needed.
