We are all probably familiar with the Guardian. As a traditional news organization that’s known for keeping up with — if not defining — digital media trends, the Guardian has been through many technology phases.
The latest one involves Signiant technology. As they look to incorporate more and more video into their content, large video file transfers have become a critical need.
We were happy to have the chance to interview Head of Applications Matt Whiting about the Guardian’s use of Signiant technology.
“The problem we have with video is that it’s sourced all over the world, and of course video files are massive,” says Whiting. “We need to get them back to our base in London as soon as possible in order to put them through our publishing systems.”
