ASPEN is an open framework that enables flows for video, audio, and metadata in an IP‐based broadcast and media facility. ASPEN expands on the MPEG‐2 Transport Stream standard to include uncompressed UHD/3G/HD/SD video over TS. The ASPEN framework also utilizes open standards for transporting audio and metadata. SMPTE 2022‐2 is used to encapsulate the transport streams into IP.
