BVE 2015: Channel 4 is working with Aspera for the transfer of its video content to the cloud for video-on-demand service 4oD.
It announced at BVE today that it is using Aspera on Demand to transfer more than 100 hours of new video content each week - amounting to 100 terabytes of data a year.
Before investing in Aspera On Demand, the broadcaster was delivering content to 4oD via FTP.
C4 broadcast systems engineer Simon Christie said “speed, efficiency and reliability” were crucial elements of the workflow.
Channel 4 will launch All 4, a new home for its digital content, later this year.
