Aspera has announced that BT Sport and its partner Timeline Television have selected its high speed transfer and automation platform for live sport production workflow.
Timeline Television is providing complete managed services to BT Sport. Aspera plays a key part by providing the orchestration system. The combination of Aspera's high performance transport technology and the Orchestrator workflow automation application delivers scalability and control in high volume workflow automation. It enables secure, practical ingest, transformation and delivery of file-based media, and the execution of workflows across the production process from end to end.
By integrating Orchestrator with EVS' IPDirector production asset management suites, Aspera also offers an integrated solution for high speed data replication between BT's new studio facility and BT Tower, enabling disaster recovery and full redundancy.
"The BT Sport project shows how Aspera can seamlessly integrate multiple, high volume workflows and manage the entire end-to-end processes to improve speed, performance, productivity and reliability," said Bruce Brewer, European sales director for Aspera. "The project was an impressive feat, as it required high-end technology and the dedication of many to meet tough deadlines. Aspera was thrilled to be involved."
