EL DORADO HILLS, CA - November 19, 2015 - Dorado Software, a global provider of integrated Resource Management, Performance Monitoring and Service Orchestration software, and Aperi, the leading provider of Virtualized Broadcast Functions and Microservers, today announced they have integrated their virtualization capabilities to offer recomposable broadcast services to end-users. The integration of Dorado's comprehensive orchestration and management platform, Redcell, with Aperi's complete ecosystem of virtualized TV content networking and processing functions, allow TV Content Providers to optimize their operations while minimizing their costs and time-to-market.
Aperi brings data center economics to live TV content production. Their broadcast function virtualization technology enables contribution networking and live production workflows to be orchestrated on demand as software Apps to run on lightning-fast networked MicroServers.

In addition, Dorado's performance monitoring capabilities allow service providers to evaluate their service state and proactively adjust service behavior as required.
"Dorado Software is focused on providing software to orchestrate, monitor, configure and manage IP network infrastructures, wireless IP and virtualized network functions for communication and video service providers," said Chris Simon, VP, Service Providers and NFV Business Unit at Dorado Software. "Our customers understand the value in the agile management of functionally rich virtualized functions. Partnering with Aperi provides us with the opportunity to offer industry leading broadcast functionality to our joint customers."
"Aperi is pleased to add comprehensive multi-vendor service orchestration and management to our product offering," said Andrew Osmond, VP Business Development at Aperi. "We believe that Aperi offers a clearly differentiated software ecosystem to our customers but recognize that the ability to dynamically orchestrate control and monitor these capabilities in their current networks is a key to broad utilization of our products. Dorado's Redcell product provides that flexibility.
