Aspera and other little-known players keep video moving

While consumer video content is front and center in the IP entertainment revolution, other critical but perhaps lesser-known content service providers have been growing in the background. One is Aspera, whose software enables infrastructure-agnostic, high-speed transport of large amounts of data from one location to another. The software has allowed TV and movie productions true geographic independence, slashing the costs of getting content back to post-production facilities. Aspera's technology is also used for live newsgathering, with customers using its mobile client to send images back to the newsroom rapidly. Additionally, on the distribution side, Aspera, which was founded in 2004, helps support live sporting events like the FIFA and UEFA Cups. Aspera isn't the only game in town when it comes to transport, though. EVS and Nevion also have a strong presence in media and entertainment, particularly with live broadcast, and have been in business for 20 and 25 years, respectively.
