"Aspera is a key enabler of our digital delivery strategy, and we are excited
to expand our use with new capabilities of over-Internet live video using
Aspera's new FASPStream."

Other key product highlights on display include:

* Launch of the next generation FASP 3.6 platform and Direct-to-Cloud Storage
transfer capability designed for secure multitenant, clustered deployments
with elastic automatic scaling of transfer capacity and supporting all
major cloud storage platforms. The platform moves even the largest (4K)
media formats from source directly to object storage destination with
native I/O for SoftLayer Swift, AWS S3, Azure BloB, Akamai NetStorage,
Limelight, and others at line speed with support for server-side encryption
at rest in addition to client side and over the wire. New cluster
management, multitenant access key and API features allow media customers
to combine cloud storage and high speed transport at unlimited scale, with
complete security and cost efficiency across multiple users and
applications. All Aspera client and file sharing products including Faspex
and Shares and the new Aspera SaaS offering, Aspera Files, interoperate
with the new clustered capabilities.
* New Management and Automation of Transfer and Synchronization - The launch
of the ascp4 binary for ultra-fast transfer of large numbers of small
files, the new Aspera Watchfolder, and Aspera Sync enable media
organizations to compute fast synchronization updates, ensure essence and
metadata transfer together and in preferred order, transfer growing files,
and synchronize, watch and move "huge" file systems. Console 3.0 manages
transfer failover and load balancing and expands email notification,
tagging, searching and reporting to provide flexibility, ease and scale as
digital file transfer explodes.
* Advances in Aspera Faspex, Connect, Cargo, Drive and a new Virtual Catcher
add-on allow for interactive and automated distribution of media content
over low cost, high speed Internet from cloud and on premise Aspera servers
to receivers globally replacing expensive legacy satellite distribution
systems. An enhanced Faspex API overlay allows for distributed routing of
packages, automatic release date management, and easy RESTful integration
in other workflows.
* Aspera Orchestrator - The new release of Aspera's web-based workflow
automation platform, Orchestrator 2.3, has undergone major optimizations
across the core system engine to improve performance within high
concurrency environments, with performance boosts in some cases as high as
10x previous versions. The release also adds native installers and a number
of usability improvements for large and multi-tenant environments. New
plug-ins have been added to the library of over 100 third-party
applications that can be invoked within an Aspera Orchestrator workflow.
New inline file validation capabilities added to Aspera server and client
software verify incoming media and metadata formats against ADI and DPP
standards in the most innovative broadcast, file-based VoD distribution and
post-production workflows.
