LONDON--(http://www.asperasoft.com/) creators of next-generation software technologies that move the world’s data at maximum speed, has partnered with Metaglue (http://www.metaglue.com/), an Emmy award-winning provider of interoperable file transfer and metadata standards solutions, to integrate AMWA AS-11 and Digital Production Partnership (DPP) media file format validation into Aspera’s high-speed file transfer software and workflow orchestration platform.)--Aspera, Inc., (
“Aspera transfer solutions are widely used throughout the media industry as part of complex file-based workflows that inherently require an efficient, automated mechanism to verify that media content conforms to standards”
Metaglue tools integrate systems and data to help organisations manage and validate standard and custom metadata schemes used industry wide. With expert knowledge of European broadcaster requirements, Metaglue has added support for the emerging AS-11 and DPP standards. The new Aspera plug-in-for Metaglue, demonstrated at IBC 2012, fully integrates the Metaglue analysis engine, and is available as a plug-in for Aspera Orchestrator (http://asperasoft.com/software/automation-management/orchestrator/), Aspera’s workflow orchestration solution. With Orchestrator, broadcasters can conveniently insert file format validation at any step within complex, distributed workflows, including ingest, transformation and distribution.
Additionally, with new software interfaces in Aspera’s fasp 3TM platform, the Metaglue plug-in can now integrate inline Aspera fasp transfer sessions. The fasp 3 transfer platform brings new software interfaces that will allow users to add any file validation step in line with the Aspera fasp transfer session, with fully integrated control, allowing the transfer session to complete or fail depending on whether the validation is successful. Success and failure conditions will be reported through the Aspera client interfaces, Aspera Console (http://asperasoft.com/software/automation-management/aspera-console/?L=0) centralised management interface and APIs, ensuring digital content in the correct format is delivered as efficiently and reliably as possible.
“Aspera transfer solutions are widely used throughout the media industry as part of complex file-based workflows that inherently require an efficient, automated mechanism to verify that media content conforms to standards,” said Ian Baker, managing director and co-founder at Metaglue. “We’re delighted to have partnered with Aspera to offer Metaglue format validation as a plug-in to Aspera’s orchestration solution and now as an integrated feature within Aspera software.”
“Aspera transport technology is critical to many of today’s broadcast workflows. Working with Metaglue to create efficient, trouble-free content supply chains for our joint broadcast customers was an obvious choice,” added Bruce Brewer, EMEA sales director at Aspera.
