Aperi Delivers Virtualized Media Network


Aperi delivers Virtualized Media Network

Solution brings media function virtualization to a large Asia-Pacific based service provider

Camarillo, CA, September 12, 2016 Aperi, the pioneer in bringing software-based real-time IP media processing to live production and networking, is providing a major Asia-Pacific based global service provider with its integrated native IP live media network and processing platform.

Building on recent successful implementations, including a UHD/4K live IP remote production during the EURO 2016 football championships, Aperi will help the telecommunications leader achieve its vision of virtualized media and network functions for its expanding media services network.

“It’s gratifying to see a major service provider with a large global footprint embrace Aperi’s Media Function Virtualization as it expands its points of presence,” said Aperi CEO Joop Janssen. “IP-based, virtualized services are critical to adequately address future needs in a rapidly changing media landscape and to achieve the necessary efficiencies and capabilities to meet consumer demands.”

Aperi and Ciena recently signed a worldwide agreement whereby Ciena will offer Aperi’s Media Function Virtualization (MFV) ecosystem with its portfolio of converged packet optical and packet switching platforms.

The Aperi platform, which supports the AIMS roadmap as well as all major standards, provides a seamless migration from SDI to a true native IP live production architecture through Media Function Virtualization (MFV). The system provides broadcasters and service providers with extremely low latency and software-based virtualization for mission-critical media processing functions in live sports, entertainment and news production.

A generic A1105 compute and switch platform includes the company’s latest SDMP microserver technology and a broad set of real-time media processing function software applications – available through Aperi’s App Store. Media providers and broadcasters benefit from more agile media processing that offers major codec applications including J2K, ASI and H.264, more cost effectively, with the ability to easily and economically spin up and down services as needed.

Aperi will demonstrate its platform at IBC, the premier annual event for professionals engaged in the creation, management and delivery of entertainment and news content worldwide. Aperi’s demo (stand 2.C27) will include a 4K/VC-2 live remote production between the Aperi and Gearhouse stands. AES67 and JPEG 2000, as well as Multiviewer, SMPTE 2022-1,2,5,6,7 and TR-03 encapsulations, and a powerful test and measurement tool called the IP Packet Generator Analyzer will also be on display. Ciena’s Waveserver™ with 400Gb/s capacity will also be featured.
