Aspera, Inc., creators of next-generation software technologies that move the world’s large data at maximum speed, and Allin Interactive, (http://www.allin.com/) a leading interactive television (ITV) systems and platform provider for the hospitality industry, today announced that Allin has embedded Aspera’s faspÔ (http://asperasoft.com/technology/transport/fasp/) transport technology into its applications to move large movie files from studios to Allin’s labs and on to its customers at maximum speed.
Allin specializes in developing applications that deliver encrypted pay-per-view films and other in-room programs such as restaurant reservations, games, event ticketing and promotional messaging. Allin built an end-to-end digital supply chain from the studios to their labs and on to the hotels using electronic file transfer.
Allin installed Aspera Enterprise Server (http://asperasoft.com/software/transfer-servers/enterprise-server/) software in their office and incorporated Aspera’s Embedded Client (http://asperasoft.com/software/client-options/embedded-client/) into their own application, which was installed at each hotel. Allin was able to leverage existing commodity hardware to deploy Aspera’s transfer software at their own facility as well as at clients’ properties, avoiding the need for expensive hardware installations at each location.
Aspera’s faspÔ transport technology fully utilizes the available bandwidth for each property, regardless of network conditions, leading Allin to garner a 30 to 35% increase in transfer speeds even on the slowest, unreliable connections at remote locations. The technology does not impede other network traffic at the hotels, thus maintaining the guests’ internet browsing experience.
Selecting Aspera has also enabled Allin to leverage the ecosystem of Aspera customers within the media industry to develop business opportunities that have led to additional revenue. “Aspera has enabled us to license higher quality, newer content from the studios because they know and use Aspera, so they trust that our transfers are 100% secure,” said Eric Immerman, Senior Vice President of Software Development at Allin. “We are one of the first ITV companies in the United States authorized to offer first-run high-definition movies from many of the Hollywood studios. Aspera added to our credibility to make this happen.”
“Media distribution platforms such as Allin often experience a wide variety of network types, bandwidth, and conditions at their distribution sites, often times with high latency and packet loss,” said Michelle Munson, CEO of Aspera. “Aspera maximizes bandwidth and achieves maximum transfer speeds on even the most challenging networks, with complete security and reliability ensuring Allin’s customers get the content they need for their guests.”
Allin Corporation is a leading provider of interactive application development, technology consulting and platform integration services. Allin Interactive, based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, specializes in deploying turn-key integrated interactive television and interactive mobile applications to the hospitality marketplace, based on its innovative browser-based DigiManager™ content management solution. Allin leverages its experience and custom development capabilities to deliver the most functionality and flexibility of any ITV solution in the world. The Company maintains offices in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Aspera is the creator of next-generation transport technologies that move the world’s data at maximum speed regardless of file size, transfer distance and network conditions.
