Omneon, Aspera partner on content distribution solutions
Omneon and Aspera have agreed on a broad partnership in which Aspera will acquire the Omneon Castify content distribution business unit, and the two companies will collaborate on making CDN solutions more widely available to broadcast and technology markets.
Omneon will continue to market the ProCast CDN product, with Aspera assuming ongoing engineering development and operational responsibility for the technology, with the goal of creating a more powerful and complete content distribution platform for customers. Aspera expects to integrate its fasp transport technology with ProCast and the Omneon APIs to create a highly manageable and high-performance solution for moving content between Omneon systems.
