Aspera Plug-In Offers Complete Avid Interplay Support
Aspera and Avid today rolled out Aspera fasp Plug-in for Avid Interplay Delivery, enabling high-speed, secure transfers of file-based media and metadata between Avid Interplay Production workgroups for coordinated multi-site content creation. Aspera now provides a complete, fully integrated high-speed transfer solution for the Avid Interplay Delivery service.
Users can share full resolution media and associated metadata between remote Interplay Production workgroups across a wide area network (WAN) by transferring video and metadata at line speed, regardless of distance, fully utilizing the available bandwidth. The Aspera solution is optimized for maximum speed retrieval and storage of media clips on Avid ISIS storage, with line speed WAN transfer at any distance, using the fasp3 transport platform and supports the complete check-out/check-in process required for coordinated transfers and collaboration.
“Interplay Delivery is a media service that links workgroups and enables multi-user / multi-site workflows by smartly handling transfers of media, sequences and shot lists between Interplay Production workgroups,” says Jim Frantzreb, director, media enterprise segment marketing at Avid. “Through Aspera’s high-speed transfer technology integrated with Interplay Production, multi-user production teams can collaborate at global distances from separate remote editing suites, with little-to-no interruption in workflow.”
The complete Aspera solution consists of an embedded Enterprise Server and the new Aspera Plug-in for Avid, which is fully integrated with the Avid Interplay Delivery service APIs. Users trigger full or partial transfers from within the Interplay user interface, and Aspera fasp software performs the high-speed transfer to the remote editing site. All Aspera encryption, privacy and bandwidth control capabilities are fully supported. Interplay Production then re-links the content at the destination for a completely seamless end-user experience.
“Aspera high-speed transfer software enables real-time global collaboration across remote production teams today, moving content securely and at maximum speed,” adds John Wastcoat, Aspera VP of business development. “By integrating fasp with Avid Interplay Delivery service, creative professionals can now initiate high-speed transfers of content and metadata from within Avid Interplay Production for a truly seamless user experience.”
