Dot Group To Showcase Unique Approach To Faster Data Transfers

News Image
Dot Group is to showcase its unique approach to faster data transfers at IBC2023 (15 – 18 September, RAI Amsterdam, stand 5.A62).

It will demonstrate DataSprint, its solution for broadcast facilities and media supply chains, powered by IBM Aspera.

IBM Aspera is widely recognised as the industry gold standard for the fastest, most secure media file transfers, and Dot Group is a leading European reseller of the option. Recognising the need for a fully integrated, predictable and cost-effective solution, Dot Group developed DataSprint, which wraps IBM Aspera into a one-stop package.

Within the contracted bandwidth, DataSprint provides unlimited transfers, users and workspaces at a fixed and affordable price. This gives production companies and post houses budget certainty: data transfers are fixed costs, with high speed, reliable and secure connections available when needed. DataSprint includes an intuitive user interface, and the necessary APIs to be integrated into larger automated workflows.

DataSprint is a key service in modern media supply chains with flexible deployment in local, remote, multisite and cloud environments. Recent major customers for DataSprint include Molinare, which exchanges very large files between its facilities around the world; audio specialist Pip Studios which pulls media from Hollywood and other production centres for mixing in London; and FooEngine which uses DataSprint to upload direct to AWS S3 storage as a fast lane for data management.

"The media team at Dot Group are very experienced with IBM Aspera," said Simon Parkinson, managing director of Dot Group. "Their wide experience with media enterprises of all types and sizes made it clear that what the industry needs is the speed and security of IBM Aspera in an easy-to-deploy affordable package. We look forward to demonstrating to the wider audience in the media and entertainment industry at IBC2023."

Dot Group is a leader in data engineering and analytics, and its experts will be on hand at IBC2023 to discuss wider industry challenges such as ESG (Environmental and Social Governance). No business can ignore its responsibilities in controlling carbon emissions and in providing safe and fair workplaces. Compliance reporting is now expected of any organisation: data engineering and analytics are a key tool not only in tracking the information but in developing proactive measures like predictive forecast analyses.

"Legal requirements across the EU now mandate accurate reporting on ESG issues," Parkinson commented. "But the moral imperative is even more important for media businesses. We show that this can be an opportunity not a burden for business, and we look forward to discussing it with visitors to IBC."

The Dot Group team will be discussing ESG, and DataSprint powered by IBM Aspera, on stand 5.A62 at IBC2023.
