NewTek Joins ASPEN Community

ASPEN logoNewTek has joined the ASPEN Community, a coalition of more than 30 vendors and broadcasters that are adopting the Adaptive Sample Picture Encapsulation (ASPN) framework for IP media applications.

At IBC 2015 in Amsterdam NewTek announced its own open IP-for-media protocol NDI, or Network Device Interface, and has since released an NDI software development kit that has been downloaded by hundreds of organizations.

By joining the ASPEN Community, the company is positioning itself to help enable the two IP media protocols and the organizations that support them to work more closely together. (To learn more about NDI, check out my recent Q&A with Cross: NewTek Tackles IP Media Transport with NDI.)

“By working together and allowing collaboration between NDI and ASPEN technologies, we are truly transforming the industry,” said NewTek president-CTO Andrew Cross.

“Enabling the smallest independent Web-casters right up to the highest-end broadcast facilities with products from hundreds of vendors and 100,000s of customers already enabled represents the true promise and future of broadcast IP,” he added.

More information is available on the ASPEN Community website.
