Aspera streamlines Sky Deutschland operations
February 15, 2012
Aspera has confirmed that pay-tv provider Sky Deutschland has deployed Aspera’s next-generation file sharing, content distribution and automation frameworks that exploit the company’s patented ‘fasp’ transport platform for high performance automated ingest from global content suppliers, high-speed gathering of breaking news and sports from field reporters and complete VoD orchestration.
“With this new deployment, we are looking to achieve multiple improvements in our content supply chain and shorten lead times on material procurement by automating the entire production process from the ingestion to the delivery,” explained Francesco Donato, Vice President of Broadcast Operations at Sky Deutschland. “We set out to implement high-performance, automated media ingest, delivery and distribution workflows.”
