April 19, 2017 - Aperi to demonstrate real-word integrated native-IP live production at NAB

Aperi to demonstrate real-word integrated native-IP live production at NAB

Demos will replicate several worldwide deployments and show third-party interoperability

Camarillo, CA, April 19, 2017 – After the company’s official launch at the 2016 NAB Show, Aperi, the pioneer of live IP Media Function Virtualization, will demonstrate its latest technology advancements, new app functionality and third-party integration. The main demo area on booth SU11413 will show two replications of recent customer deployments.

“The NAB Show offers a platform for us to share with visitors the importance of adopting virtualized production workflows and what’s possible with the latest native IP advancements,” said Joop Janssen, Aperi’s CEO. “Our demonstrations at this year’s NAB show will show content producers and their service providers how they can benefit from a truly IP-based infrastructure with instant re-programmable microservices or apps as opposed to an IP-bolstered SDI workflow.”

Customer deployments

As part of its booth demonstration space, which is twice the size last year’s, Aperi will replicate two customer deployments.

The first is a live sports remote production network which demonstrates a real-world project deployment to be announced at the show. Standards-based encapsulated IP feeds from multiple sports venues are locally inspected, filtered and their network addresses translated before being transported to a centralized production hub. Compression codecs and other real-time media processing functions can be switched on or off instantly depending on the programming preferences of the sports broadcaster using the network.

Within this demonstration, show attendees will be able to see Aperi’s full integration with Vidi’s Orchestration and NMS system. This provisions media return channels and secures bi-directional IP-tunneling and diverse path ‘hitless’ protection for data. It also lets operators control the transport of signals like talkback/intercom, CCU camera control and is essential for any live remote production deployment.

The second of its customer installation replications will be a demonstration of protected, secure IP switching facilities. Within this workflow, standards-based IP flows or legacy SDI/ASI signals are fed into the ingress ports of a core IP switch via media gateway, including IP Firewall and processing stages. SDN-controlled switching takes place before signals are handed off to either IP or SDI/ASI domains.

The integration with Skyline’s Dataminer orchestration, control and monitoring system will be fully demonstrated, showing the clear benefits of IP switching functionality.

Advanced technology functionality

Alongside these demonstrations, Aperi will also showcase several new industry partner integrations, including interoperability with the Atos BNCS control system. It will also show a number of new functions and software applications from within the company’s growing community of app developers, bringing even more functionality to the Aperi platform.

Its latest virtualization software stack (V-stack) will be on display, with enhancements that help users manage containerized processing and network software applications on its FPGA-accelerated A1105 platform.

New app developer partnerships provide new functionality including 4K and HD compression adhering to TICO standards, network address translation (NAT) and IP firewalls, a H.264 encoder and decoder and support of SMPTE 2110.

Aperi will also demonstrate new application releases for JPEG 2000, SMPTE 2022-1, -2 and -7 (ASI), uncompressed SMPTE 2022-5, -6 and -7, and a family of test and measurements apps including a packet generator and analyzer.

“Our growing community of app developers is one of our strongest assets at Aperi. We want to build an ecosystem where app-centric production infrastructures become the norm within content creation,” added Janssen. “An open, non-proprietary workflow is the future of live production, which is why developing this open development community is so important and delivers on the speed and scale of innovation that customers need.”

Join Aperi at the 2017 NAB Show, on booth number SU11413, between April 24-27 2017 to learn more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

February 23, 2017 - Aperi’s industry-first native IP processing a highlight at VidTrans 2017

Aperi’s industry-first native IP processing a highlight at VidTrans 2017

Andrew Osmond will present real-world implementations of the technology on February 28

VidTrans (Booth 33), Los Angeles, CA, February 23, 2017 Aperi will present industry-first native IP live media processing and networking at VidTrans 2017, February 28 – March 2, at the Marriott Hotel in Marina Del Rey, CA.

VidTrans is the Video Services Forum’s (VSF) annual conference and exposition, where this year’s theme is “Making IP Video Production a Reality.”

At booth 33, Aperi, a proud VSF member, will show how it’s working with key global service providers, content producers and broadcasters to seamlessly migrate their production workflows from SDI to a true native IP live production architecture. The platform is based on instant reprogrammable FPGA-acceleration technology, which is now recognized as the best way to deliver software-based virtualization for low latency, high quality live sports, entertainment and news production. The same concept has now been adopted by the world’s largest public cloud providers, including AWS and Microsoft Azure, who have rolled out high computational services based on the same technology in their data centers.

On February 28, Aperi’s Andrew Osmond will present From Theory to Reality: Native IP Live Production Using Media Function Virtualization, demonstrating how virtualization using instant reprogrammable FPGA-acceleration technology and applied data center principles turn hardware into software, and how microservers and apps can provide true Media Function Virtualization (MFV) for live IP production.

Over the past 12 months a number of major service providers and leading broadcasters in Europe, the U.S. and Asia have chosen Aperi for native IP media production and networking. Attendees will hear real-world case studies, including how the technology enabled a remote production in 4K—conceived and fully executed in six weeks—for a high-profile international professional sports event in France.

The application illustrates the extremely fast creation and spinning up and down of services enabled by the Aperi platform, which embraces the Network Function Virtualization (NFV) of the telecommunications industry and Software Defined Networking (SDN) of the data center world.

Apps, available from multiple brands in the Aperi App store, are dynamically deployed to Aperi’s compute engines, providing fast, secure and extremely cost-efficient virtualized media processing and delivery. Flexible floating licenses allow customers to offer the latest required services and functionalities at a fraction of today’s costs.

Aperi means ‘open’ in Latin, a nod to the company’s embrace of true open-source practices and open standards. Leading developers are choosing Aperi’s open platform to develop and publish apps for live media functions. New apps at Aperi’s growing App Store include 4K JPEG 2000 and 4K TICO codecs, Multiviewer, NAT Firewall, SMPTE 2022-1,2,5,6,7 and TR-03 encapsulations.

April 6, 2016 - Aperi to showcase Live IP Media Function Virtualization at NAB'16

Aperi to unveil Live IP Media Function Virtualization at NAB 2016

stand: SU12017

Camarillo, CA, USA, April 6, 2016 – At NAB 2016, booth SU12017, Aperi Corporation, the pioneer in bringing software-based real-time IP media processing to live production and networking, will demonstrate its powerful, industry-first native IP and virtualized platform for live media production.

“Broadcasters and media service providers are looking to make their operations more agile, improve or add new workflows and react much faster and with more cost efficiency to take advantage of new business opportunities such as OTT,’ said Joop Janssen, a member of Aperi’s Board of Directors.

Aperi’s platform not only offers a seamless migration to a true native IP live production architecture, but also provides extremely low latency, software-based virtualization for the most mission-critical media processing functions in live sports, entertainment and news production.

The compute and switch platform includes the company’s latest SDMP microserver technology and a broad set of real-time media processing function software applications (Aperi’s App Store).

Continued Janssen: “Whether you need to spin up or down a channel or change to the latest media format, 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 company has coined the term “Live IP Media Function Virtualization’ (MFV) to describe the technology.

“Aperi in Latin means ‘open’ and our vision in 2013, when we started the company, was to embrace true open-source practices and open standards to provide software-based solutions for the live media production and transport markets without the need for proprietary fixed-function hardware and legacy baseband formats at the core of your architecture’, says Aperi founder and chairman Eugene Keane.

Live demonstrations on the show floor will include real-time IP studio, OB-truck and transport media processing functions such as Multi-Viewer, SMPTE 2022-1,2,5,6,7 and TR-03 encapsulations, JPEG 2000 codecs and a very powerful test and measurement tool called the IP Packet Generator Analyzer.
