VIRTUALIZATION STACK

How it works

Aperi uses service-oriented architecture (SOA) software design, allowing virtualized media functions to be dynamically piped between one another for aggregate workflows (e.g. Live Remote Production). Microservers (SDMPs) and their virtualized functions can be ‘strung together’ within a single A1105 or between multiple racks using IP.

Media Function Virtualization (MFV) from Aperi

Through IP-based media function virtualization (MFV), FPGA technology and off-the-shelf hardware, Aperi provides truly native live IP video infrastructure.

The Virtualization Stack

software defined

SOFTWARE DEFINED

Aperi offers instant deployment by starting and stopping software applications using lightweight virtual machines. There’s no need to adapt or change the underlying common off-the-shelf compute and switch platform.

Realtime

REAL TIME

The platform provides the speed, agility and security needed to address today’s changing media consumption with the extremely low latency and high quality needed for live production.

native IP

NATIVE IP

Rather than static, high-cost traditional video hardware, you pay only for what you need, when you need it, and resources can be redirected easily.

Your Benefits

Flex

ELASTICITY AND SPEED

Spin new channels and workflows up or down as needed to capture viewers in a matter of minutes, not months. New function and format innovations are delivered at the speed of software, thanks to the generic and open server-switch platform and an active app developer community.

cost

COST SAVINGS

A pay-per-use model based on as-needed licensing allows the smartest use of resources and eliminates up-front investment. No costly, risk-heavy hardware or infrastructure adds.

future ready

FUTURE READY

Thanks to IP’s format-agnostic design, you can reach consumers wherever they are—on mobile devices and tablets—with a platform that accommodates 4K, remote production and more.
