Aspera and Akamai Honoured With TVBAward for Sky Italia ‘TV Anywhere’ Installation

Aspera, an IBM company, and Akamai Technologies, Inc. were honoured for their technical innovation at the TVBAwards. In a ceremony held in central London, the companies were presented with the TV Anywhere Solutions award for improving and simplifying Sky Italia’s workflow with Akamai’s Media Delivery solutions.

Since their launch in 2012, Sky Go and Sky on Demand have quickly become some of the most popular video content services in Italy with more than three million combined active users. Faced with this demand, and an increasing amount of content offered via mobile devices, Sky needed to accelerate content upload into its storage systems to grow the breadth and quality of its offerings. This required the right partner to help Sky improve their offerings without additional infrastructure investments.

With a 2500-movie library, almost five million subscribers to the broadcaster’s satellite channels, and more than two million weekly downloads, it was important that Sky Italia is able to offer new content in the fastest and most effective way without affecting quality. Combining the leading high-speed file transfer solutions from Aspera, and Akamai’s NetStorage cloud-based storage platform, Sky realized an increase in file upload speed by up to 650 percent.

The TVBAwards, organized by industry publication TVB Europe, celebrates the success stories in the production, management and delivery of media content.
