Internet File Transfer 101

Jonathan Solomon, Senior Sales & System Engineer, Aspera

​Following directly on our presentations at Bits By the Bay about video and IT/IP technology, Jonathan Solomon will elaborate on the challenges of sending large files over the internet.  Delivery of content is no longer just magical voodoo of the TOC and a private circuit.  Now it includes magical voodoo that uses the (often public) internet, the "cloud" and many other mysterious terms.

Compression, Caching, Latency, Acceleration, UDP --  learn what it all means and why what you're using today may not work.  Discuss what solutions exist that DO work.  Bring your questions, and your thirst for knowledge!

With over 20 years of Television Broadcast Engineering experience, Jonathan joined Aspera in late 2014.  Prior to joining Aspera, he was a Senior Engineering Project Manager with WWE where he oversaw the launch of the WWE OTT network, as well as a multi-million dollar state of the art facility upgrade.  Earlier roles included Director of Engineering for a regional sports network, and ten years as an EIC for an OB company.  He pursues innovations and new technology, providing cost savings measures and improving workflows though efficiencies of technology and automation of repetitive tasks.  He is a member of SMPTE as well as SBE, where he holds CSTE and CBNE certifications.  


The NAB building is at the junction of N Street, 18th Street and Connecticut Avenue, just south of Dupont Circle.  There is street parking and garage parking on many blocks in the vicinity - check signs & meters for hours!  The closest METRO stops are Duport Circle (Red Line - 2 blocks) and Farragut West (Orange/Blue lines - 4 blocks)
