Woody Technologies, a specialist in smart ingest and outgest software solutions, has integrated the Aspera FASP high-speed transport protocol into its suite of media processing solutions.
Aspera FASP has been built into Woody in2it, Woody Ingest, Woody Social and Woody Outgest. It allows broadcasters and media industry actors to build end-to-end solutions for ingest and media processing across different sites, taking advantage of the transfer acceleration offered by Aspera FASP protocol.
"The combination of Woody Technologies solutions and Aspera FASP transfer technology is a perfect fit for remote ingest workflows and multi-site collaboration, which are becoming a reality for our customers," said Nicolas Gautron, CEO of Woody Technologies.
FASP transfers achieve speeds that are hundreds of times faster than FTP/HTTP and provide a guaranteed delivery time regardless of file size, transfer distance or network conditions, including transfers over satellite, wireless, and inherently unreliable long distance, international links. It also provides complete visibility into bandwidth utilisation and control over transfer rates and bandwidth-sharing with other network traffic. Security is also built in, including secure endpoint authentication, on-the-fly data encryption and integrity verification.
"Media companies that leverage Woody Technologies solutions can now also benefit from the secure, high-speed transfer of their digital assets, powered by Aspera FASP,” added Mike Flathers, CTO of Aspera. "We are excited that Woody is enhancing their media-processing solutions to incorporate the speed and reliability that Aspera is known for. "
