NAB Show NY: Aspera To Showcase High-Speed Transfer Innovations
At NAB Show New York (booth #1025), Aspera, an IBM company, will showcase the latest versions of its high-speed file transfer software and workflow automation solutions for the broadcast and media industries.
FASPStream for Live Event Streaming
A new open turnkey video transport solution and winner of this year’s HPA Engineering Excellence Award, FASPStream enables broadcast-quality live streaming over commodity Internet networks, allowing users to stream media globally with glitch-free playout and negligible start-up time. Building on the efficiency of the FASP protocol, the solution outperforms forward error correction over UDP and CDNs by maintaining stream quality over distance without start-up delay. An ideal solution to eliminate expensive and limited satellite-based backhaul, transport, and distribution, FASPStream allows video from anywhere to everywhere using low-cost Internet. At NAB Show New York, FASPStream demonstrations will feature a live video stream from Royal Caribbean ship, Harmony of the Seas.
