Telestream Adds Aspera High-speed Transfer To Vantage Workflow Automation Platform

Combined solution enables end-to-end workflow automation including content ingest and final distribution at maximum speed using Aspera faspexTM

LAS VEGAS—2012 NAB SHOW, Booth SL9716—April 2, 2013Aspera, Inc., creators of next-generation technologies that move the world’s big data at maximum speed, and Telestream®, the leading provider of video transcoding and workflow solutions, today announced the availability of Aspera faspex for Telestream Vantage®, enabling high-speed, secure ingest and distribution of file-based media and metadata managed and automated by Vantage.

Telestream Vantage provides a complete range of world-class video transcoding and intelligent workflow orchestration products – from single-server systems for automating transcoding, to very large, multi-server systems that produce and assemble millions of finished media packages. Vantage brings transcoding, media capture, metadata processing, and analysis into a unified system. With Aspera faspex seamlessly integrated into Vantage, operators can now incorporate secure, high-speed file transfer and delivery of any file or groups of files as part of the unified and completely automated Vantage video workflow process.

The modular nature of Vantage makes it easy for users to create workflows that incorporate Aspera faspex delivery. Direct product integration allows Vantage to create the faspex package and to initiate the high-speed transfer to an Aspera server. Recipients are notified upon package delivery and can download the package with any Aspera faspex client including the Connect browser plug-in, iOS or Android mobile faspex app, Cargo automatic downloader, or the Aspera faspex Add-in for Outlook.

“We are committed to providing an open platform that unifies our tools with third-party solutions into a managed workflow ecosystem, and Aspera is often requested by our customers,” said John Pallett, director of product marketing, enterprise products at Telestream. “Instead of manually initiating an Aspera transfer, now our customers can automatically deliver finished video via Aspera, knowing that the content will be delivered at maximum speed as soon as it is available.”

“With the continuing evolution of our partnership we are very excited that Telestream has integrated Aspera into Vantage,” said John Wastcoat, Aspera VP of business development. “By integrating fasp directly into Vantage, Telestream customers can automate any workflow, including ingest and distribution, enabling large scale, high volume digital processing pipelines.”
