5 Things to Know About Media Engine

In a world where content is more widely distributed than ever, media and entertainment professionals need unfettered access to their media files — wherever they might live. You don’t necessarily know or even need to know exactly where your content is, you just need to know how to find what you need when you need it.

Enter Media Engine, a new lightweight platform service that offers powerfully simple media management capabilities, without the fuss of ‘over featuring’ that’s common to so many existing media asset management (MAM) solutions.

Media Engine allows companies already on the Signiant Platform to easily search, preview and take action on media assets across all their Signiant-connected storage, from anywhere in the world.

1. Instant Access

A subscription to any Signiant SaaS product — Media Shuttle, Jet, or Flight Deck — gets you access to Media Engine. We recognize that our tools work better in concert with each other.

There’s no organizational or technological changes necessary to your current set-up either. Just tell Media Engine which storage to index, and those files become immediately searchable.

2. Federated Search Across All Your Storage

Media Engine lets users search by keyword and phrase, file type, and more to easily find assets across distributed storage. This means that users can perform federated searches across multiple content repositories whether they’re on-premise or in the cloud.

When you do find your file, Media Engine lets you preview it regardless of media format. And since Media Engine is directly integrated with Media Shuttle, you can immediately download and/or send it to collaborators.

3. Take Action

Once you’ve found the asset you are looking for and confirmed it’s what you want, you can download that asset to your desktop or send it anywhere in the world. Signiant’s proprietary acceleration technology makes it easy to send any-size file, from any storage repository anywhere with speed and reliability.

4. Secure

Security is deeply ingrained in our way of thinking about software development and operational procedures which is why Signiant is a preferred vendor for Hollywood studios, broadcasters, sports leagues and more

Media Engine conforms to the same access permission set as Media Shuttle which has more than one million subscribers today. When you turn on Media Engine, customers can expect the same rigorous adherence to security standards found in all our products.

5. Availability

Media Engine is ready today! If you’re on the Signiant Platform, you have Media Engine and following a simple activation process, you can start searching!.

Media Engine is a platform service built for today’s media industry where distributed teams, distributed storage and complex supply chains are the norm and where time is always a valuable commodity.
