Monthly Bulletin: January 2024 

The Signiant Platform is going dark — dark mode that is. Dark mode reduces power, can help reduce eye strain, and is more visually appealing. The Signiant console’s light/dark mode automatically follows your computer’s system settings.  

On-demand play and clipping will be generally available in mid-January! On-demand play feature allows users to play a variety of media formats without having to pre-generate and store proxies — allowing for more diligent reviews before pulling down a heavy asset. Clipping allows users to mark in and out points to select a portion of a media asset. Saving time and egress costs, this ability is generally known as partial file restore in the industry. 

COMING SOON! Blue Ant Media is a rapidly growing content creator and media distributor that faced challenges transferring their large files to remote teams while utilizing diverse storage endpoints. Traditional methods like FTP became impractical as they transitioned to distributing 4K.  

To address this, Blue Ant adopted the Signiant Platform, allowing them to streamline its global content flow, support various storage solutions, ensure timely deliveries, and ultimately contribute to their ongoing success and growth.

Have you ever received a file in the wrong format and hated having to go back and forth to get the right file format which costs YOU time and money?  

CloudSpeX checks the file against a selected specification before a transfer and alerts the user if the file is out of compliance. Learn more about CloudSpeX
