AberFast for Video Producers

Aberdeen makes the delivery of long-form programming not only possible but practical! Our way of receiving clients' files, embedding closed captions into station-specific codecs, and transferring the finished file to stations around the globe is a system we call  AberFast. 

You need AberFast because we'll... 

  • Save you time 
  • Save you money 
  • Give you the best quality video possible 

How It Works

  1. Client exports from their edit system and uploads file via AberFast HotFolder or S3 Web uploader. 
  2. The file is transferred to Aberdeen and notifications of receipt are e-mailed.
  3. Aberdeen does the captioning and/or language work if required.
  4. Client video is transcoded to a station-specific codec with closed captions.
  5. Files are QC'd and transferred via HotFolder to TV stations with e-mail notifications.

Faster Than FTP 

Our file transfer solution maintains high data speeds over long distances for dependable connections and transfer times up to 80% faster than traditional FTP.  AberFast's  automated transfers provide email notifications for receipt and delivery to ensure every client knows exactly when their program has been successfully delivered. See more details on  how we deliver files.

The Difference Is in the Software 

We have made quality our chief objective at AberFast  and have built our transcoding platform and automation around maintaining and delivering the same image quality that our clients see on the monitors in their edit bays. As part of our setup process, we also provide broadcast consulting and post-production support so our clients' files are as professional as possible. Being the offshoot of a closed-captioning company has provided  AberFast  with a significant edge in station deliverables – we can embed captions in the native codec of any station's play-server file of choice. By creating a custom file for each station, we limit the amount of encoding a digital master goes through before it hits the air, making the delivery of the highest quality programs possible. 

Phone Number Inserts Made Easy 

Sending to multiple stations? Would you like a different phone number for each program? Just send us a single master file without a phone number and we can make this happen for all your deliverables. Just another way we use technology to make your life easier. See more details at our transcoding platform.
