Dubsat Selects Aspera Technology to Power MediaPro Extreme
Dubsat, an Omnilab company, has selected Aspera as the core data transfer technology of MediaPro Extreme, the second generation of their MediaPro Mac and PC desktop application that facilitates file transferring, management and delivery of TV, radio, outdoor and online advertising across the Pacific Asia region.
“By incorporating Aspera’s fasp into MediaPro Extreme we are providing more market-leading services to our clients. MediaPro Extreme is free to download for any registered Dubsat user and gives maximum control and quality while saving time and money through added convenience and greater efficiencies,” said Grant Schuetrumpf, CEO of Dubsat. “There are four significant new improvements with MediaPro Extreme including ultra-high speed file transfers; a completely new streamlined interface, a job workflow feature and an incorporated booking wizard. With these improvements, users can now use Media Pro Extreme to manage the entire delivery process of their broadcast advertising.”
Adam Larter, CTO of Dubsat added “Powered by Aspera’s fasp next-generation file transfer technology you can now send your content at much faster rates than ever before. MediaPro Extreme does away with FTP and tapes by allowing you to simply drag and drop files from your desktop onto MediaPro Extreme to begin high-speed file transfers. Users are able to transfer files in the background, prioritize the order, and pause or resume file transfers in progress. With its complete reliability and ease of use, Aspera’s fasp has become the industry standard for the high-speed movement and management of large files or collections of files over wide area networks.”
One of MediaPro Extreme’s unique features is that Dubsat users can immediately preview uploaded content to self-check video, audio, and clapper as required for TVC deliveries, all from their desktop. MediaPro Extreme enables the user to choose a contribution file format that best suits their production requirements, including ProRes, MPEG2 and MPEG4. It also provides the ability to aggregate video and audio streams and clappers, with full support of multiplexed files for video and audio content. MediaPro Extreme is integrated with Dubsat’s online web portal MyDubsat, providing a synchronized connection to online live booking, closed-captioning services, a delivery cost estimation tool, asset archiving, real-time repurposing services, tracking and delivery notifications.
“Dubsat’s MediaPro Extreme is another excellent example of how easily Aspera can be integrated into a great product to make it even better,” said John Wastcoat, vice president at Aspera. “A large and growing percentage of Aspera partners are using our broad set of APIs to embed Aspera into their products and applications. Our partners benefit from being able to quickly integrate and release a product, and end users benefit from needing to make fewer technology choices.”
