At BroadcastAsia 2016, Aspera will showcase its latest high-speed transfer innovations for live streaming, collaboration and workflow automation.
Aspera FASPStream is a new turnkey application software line that represents the first open video transport solution for live streaming of broadcast-quality video over commodity Internet networks with glitch-free playout and negligible start-up time reducing the need for expensive and limited satellite-based backhaul, transport and distribution.
FASPStream software uses Asperas FASP bulk data protocol to transport any live video source (local multicast, unicast UDP, TCP, or growing file source) and provides timely arrival of live video and data independent of network round-trip delay and packet loss. Less than five seconds of start-up delay is required for 50 Mbps video streams transported over 250 milliseconds round-trip latency and three percent packet loss, sufficient for 4K streaming between continents. The solution delivers exceptional video quality, is interoperable with all common stream providers and receivers, secure with encryption in transit and built-in access control policies, and completely interoperable with file-based workflows.
