IBM Aspera is showcasing advancements to its Streaming for Video Solution. Building on the success of its FASPStream protocol, Aspera continues to disrupt the status quo with exciting new capabilities. This latest evolution enables live and near-live video streaming at the highest quality with no added latency over commodity internet with low-touch deployment and centralized administration using existing video infrastructure.

Aspera Streaming for Video, powered by FASPStream enables centralized, real-time production of high bit-rate programming, eliminating the need to co-locate costly production staff at remote venues. It also supports in-line transcoding, packaging and delivery to accelerate live video delivery and facilitates open file workflows for real-time editing and production. By lowering the production costs for all kinds of events, especially tier 2 and tier 3 events, broadcasters can create and deliver new content targeting new audiences.

Stream Manager — Automatically discovers Aspera FASPStream-enabled devices on a network, making deployment, configuration and management amazingly simple. It reduces the cost and effort of traditional setup at the steam origin (e.g. remote venues) while increasing visibility and control at the point of production (e.g. broadcast center). It also provides a new, easy-to-use interface that enables administrators to control remote devices, create and manage multiple streams, as well as view device and stream status.

Other enhancements include multiple multicast streams that can now concurrently transfer to the same multicast IP address or multicast port, and full support for IBM Aspera Proxy to enable secure streaming transport over public Internet in firewall-controlled environments.

    In 1977, DC Comics unveiled a superhero named Black Lightning, hoping to fill an obvious void with a token character who, inspired somewhat by the characters in blaxploitation cinema, exhibited a lot of street sense on the blighted side of Metropolis. Black Lightning, a wholehearted and energetic live-action revival of the character on CW. It is a fine example of what television might look like once we move past the more ceremonial aspects of diversity. This is a black show on a network filled with white superheroes, and it displays no insecurity or self-consciousness about that.

    In Amazon's Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, the creator of Gilmore Girls introduces another brainy, mouthy heroine, this time in the male-dominated comedy world of the 1950s.

    A reassuring example of older means getting better, Will & Grace struts back to NBC bolder, brassier and bawdier. Some like it tart, and this frisky frolic delivers. After eight seasons, the beloved sitcom felt faded at its fade-out in 2006. Eleven years later, the revival packs a joyous kick in the first three episodes. Here is an absolutely fabulous return with four irrepressible stars who are at their very best. Will & Grace is no gay dinosaur.

    Wonderstruck, overstuffed, corny and stirring, Star Trek: Discovery stands tall alongside the best-regarded incarnations of the Trek franchise even as it raids elements from all of them (including the recent J.J. Abrams film series, which Paramount says is set in an alternate timeline that has nothing to do with this one). Though handsomely produced, the show’s imagination seems to have been slightly reined in by commercial mandates — namely, reinvigorating Trek as a TV property and serving as a marquee title that would lure customers to CBS All Access, the network’s subscription-only service.
