Aperi partners with Macnica for video-over-IP transport technologies
Software-based realtime IP live production company Aperi has partnered with Macnica Technology, a division of the $4B Macnica Group, to offer video-over-IP intellectual property and products.
Macnica is developing branded apps that provide core IP media processing functionality and will be available through Aperi’s App Store. Macnica and Aperi will also jointly develop technologies that will lead to new video transport applications and conform to new SMPTE standards.
“We’re extremely proud that Macnica has elected to develop IP realtime media processing solutions for the Aperi platform,” said Aperi CEO Joop Janssen. “A robust offering of apps from leading developers is critical to Aperi’s business model and to our comprehensive collection of high-quality, all-IP solutions for broadcasters, service providers and content owners worldwide.”
Apps, available from multiple brands in the Aperi App store, are dynamically deployed to Aperi’s compute engines, providing fast, secure media processing and delivery. With the industry’s first virtualised, native live IP media platform, customers can spin channels up and down on demand—quickly, easily and cost effectively—to stay relevant and earn viewers as media consumption habits rapidly evolve.
“Aperi’s open platform has met an urgent need in today’s media landscape for reliable, native IP processing,” said Marc Levy, CTO at Macnica. “The software-based platform integrates the essential components needed to implement IP-based live production workflows supporting the emerging SMPTE standards.”
