Solution brings media function virtualization to a large Asia-based service provider

Camarillo, CA, September 11, 2016 – Aperi, the pioneer in bringing software-based real-time IP media processing to live production and networking, today announced a deal to provide a major Asia-based global service provider with its integrated native IP live media processing platform.

Building on recent successful implementations, including a EURO 4K remote production, Aperi, together with Ciena, leading supplier of telecommunications networking equipment, software and services, will help the telecommunications leader achieve its vision of virtualized media and network functions for its expanding media services network.

“It’s gratifying to see a major service provider with a large global footprint embrace Aperi’s Media Function Virtualization as it expands its points of presence,” said Aperi CEO Joop Janssen. “IP-based, virtualized services are critical to adequately addressing future needs of a rapidly changing media landscape and achieving the necessary efficiencies and capabilities to meet consumer demands.”

The Aperi platform, which supports the AIMS roadmap as well as all major standards, provides a seamless migration from SDI to a true native IP live production architecture through Media Function Virtualization (MFV). The system provides broadcasters and service providers with extremely low latency and software-based virtualization for mission-critical media processing functions in live sports, entertainment and news production.

A generic A1105 compute and switch platform includes the company’s latest SDMP microserver technology and a broad set of real-time media processing function software applications – available through Aperi’s App Store. Media providers and broadcasters benefit from more agile media processing that offers major codec applications including J2K, ASI and H.264, more cost effectively, with the ability to easily and economically spin up and down services as needed.

Aperi will demonstrate its platform at IBC (stand 2.C27), including a 4K/VC-2 live remote production between the Aperi and Gearhouse stands. AES67 and JPEG 2000, as well as Multiviewer, SMPTE 2022-1,2,5,6,7 and TR-03 encapsulations, and a powerful test and measurement tool called the IP Packet Generator Analyzer will also be on display.
