Faster content ingest with FASP transfers for Grass Valley® STRATUS®


Reliable, secure, and rapid ingest of data is essential for production workflows. Grass Valley has worked with Aspera to add FASP high-speed and secure transfer capability to enable customers to ingest production data into their GV STRATUS platform. The integration of Aspera technology allows customers to get productions running quicker and smoother than ever before.

Joint Solution Highlights

  • GV STRATUS customers achieve faster content ingest through FASP high-speed transfers
  • Content transfers may be automated through the use of Aspera hot folders
  • Aspera tools allow customers to monitor and manage transfers


Grass Valley customers in the Entertainment, On-Air Operations, and News markets use GV STRATUS to create a personalized workflow that allows them to integrate massive volumes of content, assets, and modular program features into highly complex media workflows.  Customers turn to Grass Valley to have a standardized, consistent, and easy-to-use interface into their media workflow that allows users to work with and edit assets in place without having to have them on their local machine.

To get up and going faster with GV STRATUS, Grass Valley has teamed with Aspera to integrate FASP technology into the GV STRATUS workflow, enabling rapid content ingest, monitoring of transfers, and automation.  The Aspera integration with GV STRATUS dramatically shortens content ingest times and enables faster, more effective production workflows.
