The industry’s first virtualized, native live IP media platform
extremely low latency processing
Racks and stacks are over. Now you can spin channels up and down on demand—quickly, easily and cost effectively—to stay relevant and earn viewers as media consumption changes.
Aperi’s app store, software-based IP ecosystem and compute engines provide secure, completely virtualized media processing and delivery.
Media Function Virtualization (MFV) from Aperi
Through IP-based media function virtualization (MFV), FPGA technology and off-the-shelf hardware, Aperi provides truly native live IP video infrastructure.
The Virtualization Stack
Aperi offers instant deployment by starting and stopping software applications using lightweight virtual machines. There’s no need to adapt or change the underlying common off-the-shelf compute and switch platform.
The platform provides the speed, agility and security needed to address today’s changing media consumption with the extremely low latency and high quality needed for live production.
Rather than static, high-cost traditional video hardware, you pay only for what you need, when you need it, and resources can be redirected easily.
ELASTICITY AND SPEED
Spin new channels and workflows up or down as needed to capture viewers in a matter of minutes, not months. New function and format innovations are delivered at the speed of software, thanks to the generic and open server-switch platform and an active app developer community.
A pay-per-use model based on as-needed licensing allows the smartest use of resources and eliminates up-front investment. No costly, risk-heavy hardware or infrastructure adds.
Thanks to IP’s format-agnostic design, you can reach consumers wherever they are—on mobile devices and tablets—with a platform that accommodates 4K, remote production and more.
Aperi, the pioneer of virtualized media production, has closed a round of funding of more than $10 million (USD) as it seeks to scale to meet the growing demand from customers for its unique range of services. Much of this investment has come from a group of global industry-focused venture capitalists led by software and cloud technology experts Merapar, and including Ocom, Manuardeo, Innov8on and Malvern Ventures LLC, which are drawn from the UK, USA, Europe and Asia.
China’s state television broadcaster, China Central Television, known around the world as CCTV, has expanded its implementation of the media virtualization functionality of Aperi’s IP-based live media processing platform. Building on a successful deployment over the past year, CCTV decided to grow the platform globally, equipping its foreign locations with Aperi technologies so it can produce and distribute programming in a much more flexible way.
Growing religious organization extends the scope of its low-latency, cost-effective and flexible network, including technical support.
With Aperi’s software-based live media processing platform, Eagle Brook Church is able to efficiently and flexibly broadcast services over an optical transport network from its main campus in Lino Lakes, MN to its six satellite locations via simulcast.
A brand new stand at IBC2018 will see Aperi – the pioneer of software-driven live remote production – demonstrate the technology that content producers and distributors all over the world are using for faster, more efficient live productions.
On stand 2.C21, Aperi will demonstrate a live 4K production chain that relies on Aperi’s production platform to achieve true remote production. Visitors to the show will see firsthand how deploying a software-based workflow, instead of traditional hardware-only or hybrid architectures, enable broadcast functions that can be turned on or off, as needed.
