Aspera, Inc.: Mirriad and Xstream Deploy Aspera High-Speed Transfer in the Cloud

Demand for Aspera On Demand Increases Throughout EMEA Region; Advertising Technology Creator Mirriad and OTT Solutions Provider Xstream Are Among New CustomersARMONK, N.Y., Sept. 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBM (NYSE:IBM) today announced
thatAspera, an IBM Company, continued the momentum in its cloud offerings
with the addition of two new customers, advertising technology
creatorMirriad, and OTT and TV Everywhere solutions providerXstream.

Mirriad

With headquarters in London, UK, and offices around the world, Mirriad works
with leading brands, content owners and distributors in over 20 countries,
delivering native ads seamlessly embedded within premium video content,
including TV shows, movies and music videos.

Mirriad deployed Asperafaspex(TM) On Demand to streamline file exchange
between customers and business partners around the world. For Mirriad's
numerous clients in Asia and Latin America, where poor connections are
common, Aspera's ability to perform even over the worst network conditions
was particularly important. Mirriad is now able to send and receive
high-resolution media assets across global distances quickly, reliably and
securely, regardless of file size, the distance between Mirriad's clients and
the cloud infrastructure, or the conditions of the network.

Mirriad also selectedAspera Cargoto enable the automatic download of media
files upon receipt, saving time and easing collaboration between
geographically dispersed teams. Today, Mirriad receives on average 20 to
100GB, with peaks upwards of 200GB, of large media assets directly to their
cloud storage usingAspera On Demand. The tight integration ofAspera FASPand
the underlying object storage APIs ensures the fastest speeds while adding
transfer management features such as pause, resume, and encryption at rest.

"The Aspera solution enhances our services with media transfer speeds up to
five times faster than legacy solutions. FTP and other legacy technologies
had poor performance over the WAN and difficulty handling large file sizes
for us," said Tim Harris, VP of engineering at Mirriad. "Decreasing overall
project turnaround time is allowing us to meet the increasing demand for
branded entertainment and native advertising in premium high-quality video
content."

Xstream

Copenhagen-based Xstream is the creator of end-to-end solutions for OTT and TV
Everywhere business models. Xstream's video management system, Xstream
MediaMaker(TM) is a modular and easy to use cloud-based service that enables
telcos, cable operators, broadcasters and media companies to create, deliver
and monetize OTT and TV Everywhere solutions.

Though the company initially focused on providing services for its Nordic
customers, Xstream rapidly expanded to global markets and was met with a
growing need for fast and easy collaboration with clients and partners around
the world.

Xstream's customers license tens of thousands of titles from studios and
depend on Xstream to retrieve video files from content owners and deliver
them into customers' systems for streaming. Aspera On Demand enables Xstream
to ingest large volumes of high-end content from studios, distributors and
content owners into Xstream's video processing workflows for packaging,
content protection and CDN delivery. The subscription-based model enables
Xstream to scale up resources as needed to meet growing demand, without large
upfront infrastructure costs.

Xstream embedded Aspera's FASP high-speed transfer technology into the
MediaMaker Loading Dock service, part of Xstream MediaMaker(TM). Studios,
supply chain partners and customers upload video files by simply dropping
content into watch folders, triggering an automatic upload directly to
Xstream's data center hosted in the cloud. Xstream customers benefit from
reduced time spent on the content supply chain, and faster time to market.

"Aspera is a well-known solution in the video industry, which is one of the
main reasons we selected the solution. We use Aspera daily and it greatly
improves the speed and reliability of our file uploads. The results have
exceeded our expectations," said Brynhild Vinskei, CMO at Xstream.

"Continued demand for cloud-based media services and technologies is
encouraging media companies throughout EMEA and beyond to seek new
cloud-ready solutions for file transfer and collaboration. By reducing
transfer times, Aspera empowers companies to provide the quality and timely
service their valued customers deserve," said Bruce Brewer, head of sales at
Aspera for EMEA.
