Virtualised media production company Aperi is showcasing its latest innovations at IBC2019 in the wake of securing more than $10m in additional funding.
Joop Janssen, CEO, Aperi, said: “The new funding is obviously great news for us and will allow us to continue developing [multiple facets] of our virtualised production technologies.”
The company’s appearance at IBC2019 certainly underlines the rapid nature of its recent progress. The latest developments include differentiating virtualised IP media edge solutions powered by the container-based V-Stack Software Hypervisor for ultra-low latency media functions, as well as a number of new live broadcast capabilities available in the Aperi App Store.
For instance, newly launched is a multi-format auto-sensing DVB-ASI or SDI to IP gateway function app that delivers standards-based encapsulation of ST 2022-2 and ST 2022-6 flows in an auto-sensing fashion. This allows a variety of content to play directly into IP-based workflows.
Surveying a busy IBC2019 stand, Janssen confirmed that “more and more people are becoming comfortable with moving into a virtualised environment… [the technology behind it] has been well-proven.” In particular, there is a growing awareness of the flexibility it can bring to the fast-paced world of sports contribution, which continues to be a primary market for Aperi.
