Wazee Digital Speeds Global Multimedia Workflows With Aspera
“No matter where our business takes us, I’m confident that Aspera will remain a strategic partner that helps us to continue progress and scale because they understand how significant time-to-value is for any business in today’s cloud-centric ecosystem.”
By integrating API’s for its SaaS platform, Aspera on Cloud, rights holders, live event teams, and content recipients can more reliably and securely upload and download new content at high speeds from Wazee Digital’s cloud-native DAM solutions, leading to faster content publication and monetization.

Content creators are consistently delivering multiple terabytes of new content each day. Content can include still images, video, audio, press conferences, poster-art, and other digital assets. To handle this explosion of content being ingested from all over the world, Wazee Digital needed a reliable and secure high-speed data transfer solution which met market expectations – all while remaining in the cloud.
With consumers demanding instant access to content, it was imperative to shorten the window for end-to-end workflow from capture, processing, and delivery to audiences across any device – whether the content involved a specific live event such as a major sporting event or additional use cases ranging from production studios to television programs and networks.
In addition, as content creators were ingesting as much as 1.2 petabytes (PBs) per year while Wazee Digital’s overall content library stands at more than 19 PBs, scalability was another critical factor to account for the growing velocity, volume, quality, and size of new content.
ABOUT WAZEE DIGITAL
How our services bring about success
We work with PacGenesis because they are experts in Aspera and digital file movement. They make the process really simple, and really work with us to design and implement the Aspera solutions to meet our workflow requirements. PacGenesis is always there for immediate support and seem to always solve any of our Aspera transfer and storage issues. They are a trusted partner, and are vital for our team at MGM.
Aspera has been part of our tool kit for years and switching our licenses to PacGenesis made a huge difference. PacGen took the time to learn about our business and understand how we use this tool. They have applied their expertise to ensure we are utilizing Aspera in the most efficient way possible and they provide a level of support we only see from internal partners.
The Aspera deployment created a frictionless experience for both our end users and our external partners, making the exchange of files much easier regardless of size, which has improved overall collaboration.
Lead System Operator
Transfers over the satellite connections are consistently 6-8 Mbps with Aspera (at full available bandwidth capacity) and ramp up to 40 Mbps+ when the vessels move into the WiMAX zone where bandwidth capacity increases, making transfers noticeably much faster
In my 17 years of experience of working on large scale IT projects, the Aspera deployment was the most successful I’ve been involved with and it imposed the least amount of inconvenience to our users and customers.
“Thanks to Aspera, file transfer speeds have improved 144% making it easy to meet court mandated deadlines and better serve our clients.”
Together the solutions significantly accelerate the turnaround time for data processing while at the same time solving the data throughput issue.
We wanted a solution that would work for a broad range of people, not just those with technological expertise. Using Aspera, anyone can upload or download data easily.
We can deliver content faster and more efficiently using Aspera. It would be hard to manage without it.
