a major manufacturer and distributor of video and audio systems to the
broadcast, postproduction and professional video markets, announces that
it has become a member of the ASPEN Community
Founded earlier this year, the ASPEN Community is a coalition of
industry leading manufacturers and end-users that are adopting the ASPEN
framework for building state of the art IP facilities.
ASPEN, an acronym for Adaptive Sample Picture ENcapsulation, is a robust
transport format for encapsulating uncompressed Ultra HD/3G/HD/SD over
MPEG-2 transport streams. First released at NAB 2015, ASPEN was
developed as an open framework to build flexible, scalable, and highly
efficient IP facilities. Built to meet the real world requirements of an
IP-centric facility while leveraging proven MPEG2-TS standards, ASPEN
offers ultra low latency with independent video, audio and ancillary
data flows. When combined with existing SMPTE standards, ASPEN provides
broadcasters with a flexible method of transporting video, audio, and
data over scalable IP networks.
"We're pleased to join other top industry manufacturers as a member of
the ASPEN Community," said Jay Shinn, Vice President, FOR-A America.
"ASPEN is leading the way in providing a common, open framework for IP
transport, and FOR-A is happy to be a part of this collaborative
