Adaptive Sample Picture Encapsulation (ASPEN) has announced that AJA Video Systems is the latest company to join its community.
The group – a collection of industry manufacturers and end-users adopting the ASPEN framework for building IP facilities – follow an open format that was developed to meet the real-world requirements of an IP-centric facility, whilst holding MPEG2-TS standards.
“As the broadcast industry moves towards an IP-based infrastructure, it’s becoming increasingly more important for technology developers to adopt open format standards that will make this transition easier for everyone in the industry,” said Nick Rashby, president of AJA Video Systems.
ASPEN is designed to provide a framework for transporting separated video, audio and metadata as independent IP multicast streams. The community was founded at IBC 2015 to realise and promote the benefits of embracing the open format within IP-based broadcast and media facilities, through the integration and interoperability of ASPEN.
“We are very pleased to have AJA Video Systems join the ASPEN community,” said Mo Goyal, co-chairperson of ASPEN. “The transition from SDI to IP is a major initiative in the industry, and the ASPEN community is providing the leadership for an open framework for building IP facilities.
“AJA Video Systems has extensive experience in the video and media broadcasting industry, which will be invaluable to help media and broadcasting professionals make the transition to IP using ASPEN.”
