Allin Interactive embeds Aspera fasp high-speed transport in DigiHD™ ITV for rapid and secure delivery of HD content to hospitality industry
EMERYVILLE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Aspera (News - Alert), Inc., creators of next-generation software technologies that
move the world's large data at maximum speed, and Allin Interactive, (http://www.allin.com/)
a leading interactive television (ITV) systems and platform provider for
the hospitality industry, today announced that Allin has embedded
Aspera's faspÔ (http://asperasoft.com/technology/transport/fasp/)
transport technology into its applications to move large movie files
from studios to Allin's labs and on to its customers at maximum speed.
Allin specializes in developing applications that deliver encrypted
pay-per-view films and other in-room programs such as restaurant
reservations, games, event ticketing and promotional messaging. Allin
built an end-to-end digital supply chain from the studios to their labs
and on to the hotels using electronic file transfer.
Allin installed Aspera Enterprise Server (http://asperasoft.com/software/transfer-servers/enterprise-server/)
software in their office and incorporated Aspera's Embedded Client (http://asperasoft.com/software/client-options/embedded-client/)
into their own application, which was installed at each hotel. Allin was
able to leverage existing commodity hardware to deploy Aspera's transfer
software at their own facility as well as at clients' properties,
avoiding the need for expensive hardware installations at each location.
Aspera's faspÔ transport technology fully utilizes the available
bandwidth for each property, regardless of network conditions, leading
Allin to garnera 30 to 35% increase in transfer speeds even on the
slowest, unreliable connections at remote locations. The technology does
not impede other network traffic at the hotels, thus maintaining the
guests' internet browsing experience.
Selecting Aspera has also enabled Allin to leverage the ecosystem of
Aspera customers within the media industry to develop business
opportunities that have led to additional revenue. "Aspera has enabled
us to license higher quality, newer content from the studios because
they know and use Aspera, so they trust that our transfers are 100%
secure," said Eric Immerman, Senior Vice President of Software
Development at Allin. "We are one of the first ITV companies in the
United States authorized to offer first-run high-definition movies from
many of the Hollywood studios. Aspera added to our credibility to make
"Media distribution platforms such as Allin often experience a wide
variety of network types, bandwidth, and conditions at their
distribution sites, often times with high latency and packet loss," said
Michelle Munson, CEO of Aspera. "Aspera maximizes bandwidth and achieves
maximum transfer speeds on even the most challenging networks, with
complete security and reliability ensuring Allin's customers get the
content they need for their guests."
