AJA Video Systems joins the ASPEN Community
The latest addition to the ASPEN Community – a rapidly growing coalition of industry leading manufacturers and end-users who are adopting the ASPEN framework for building state of the art IP facilities – has been announced in the form of AJA Video Systems.
ASPEN (Adaptive Sample Picture ENcapsulation) is an open format that was developed to meet the real world requirements of an IP-centric facility while leveraging proven MPEG2-TS standards. ASPEN provides a framework for transporting separated video, audio, and metadata as independent IP multicast streams. The ASPEN Community was founded at IBC 2015 to realize and promote the benefits of deploying the ASPEN format within IP-based broadcast and media facilities through the integration and interoperability of the open format.
“As the broadcast industry moves towards an IP based infrastructure, it’s becoming increasingly more important for technology developers to adopt open format standards that will make this transition easier for everyone in the industry,” said Nick Rashby, president, AJA Video Systems. “We’re happy to join the ASPEN community and further our commitment to supporting IP-based workflows.”
“We are very pleased to have AJA Video Systems join the ASPEN Community. The transition from SDI to IP is a major initiative in the industry, and the ASPEN Community is providing the leadership for an open framework for building IP facilities. AJA Video Systems has extensive experience in the video and media broadcasting industry which will be invaluable to help media and broadcasting professionals make the transition to IP using ASPEN,” commented Mo Goyal, co-chairperson of the ASPEN Community.
