AberFast overview

Aberdeen makes the delivery of long form programming not only possible, but practical! Why send tapes when a digital file can get to us before the mail carrier could even make it to your office? 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.

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 at how we deliver files.

The difference is in the software

We have made quality our chief objective at AberFast and have built our transcoding farm 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 on 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 farm.
