Evertz Launches New ASPEN Community Website
Evertz Technologies has launched a new ASPEN Community website. The ASPEN Community was developed in response to the strong interest and support of the ASPEN framework for IP networks.
The ASPEN Community can be found at www.aspen-community.com.
ASPEN, Adaptive Sample Picture ENcapsulation, has been developed as an open framework to build flexible, scalable, and highly efficient IP facilities. ASPEN allows for video, audio and metadata to be on individual IP multicast streams to provide broadcasters complete flexibility for transport, production, and playout applications.
The ASPEN Community, announced at IBC 2015, has been rapidly growing from its initial members who included Abekas, ChryonHego, Discovery Communications, Game Creek Video, Hitachi Kokusai Electric Limited Inc., NEP Group Inc., PacketStorm, Ross Video, Sony, Tektronix, Time Warner Cable SportsNet, and Vizrt. With the strong industry interest regarding ASPEN, the ASPEN Community website will act as a portal of information. The website will keep the industry updated on the progress of ASPEN development and deployment.
