Dalet Galaxy Integrates Aspera High-Speed Transfer Solutions to Speed Media File Exchange

ARMONK, N.Y., Sept. 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IBM (NYSE:IBM) today announced that Dalet, a leading provider of software-based solutions for media organizations, has completed an integration of FASP® high-speed transfer technology from Aspera, an IBM company, into the Dalet Galaxy enterprise media asset management (MAM) platform. The solution will enhance users' upload experience by reducing transfer times and improving reliability.

Dalet Galaxy unifies the content chain by managing assets, metadata, workflows and processes across multiple and diverse production and distribution systems. Specially tailored for media workflows, this unique technology platform helps broadcasters and media professionals to increase productivity while providing operational and business visibility.

Dalet has partnered with Aspera to enable faster ingest of large digital media files into the Dalet Galaxy platform, with line-speed WAN transfer of any-size files at any distance, using the Aspera FASP transport technology. The solution enables organizations to realize the comprehensive Dalet toolset for multi-site collaboration and remote working, sharing media files and metadata at high speed across the enterprise.

For companies with multiple sites and employees working remotely, fast and reliable exchange is crucial for effective collaboration and productivity. Traditional transfer technologies like FTP can facilitate this exchange, but inherent throughput bottlenecks limit their viability for large file sizes.

Accommodating challenges unique to media workflows using Aspera FASP as the transfer backbone between multiple sites and remote workers, Dalet Galaxy will enable users to initiate high-speed transfers, offering faster import/export and inter-site exchange, and promoting greater collaboration and mobility.

"The fast transfers brought about through the integration of Aspera beautifully complement our advanced multi-site features while offering our customers a solution that meets their needs for speed, reliability and security," said Yoav Stahl, director of product management for Dalet.

"Aspera's high-speed file transfer technology is capable of moving the largest file sizes at the fastest speeds, which significantly enhances the user experience and increases productivity. By speeding the upload of high-res media files, Aspera unlocks access to the versatile Dalet business solutions for media workflows," said John Wastcoat, VP of business development at Aspera.

This new partnership further expands Aspera's broad partner ecosystem, enabling wider access to its high-speed transfer technology and deeper integration into media workflows.

Aspera will be demonstrating its full portfolio of high-speed file transfer and sharing applications at IBC 2015, Hall 7 Stand B27.
