Signiant at NAB 2024

There is no elephant in the room. We’ve all talked about it — more files, more complexity, and growing file sizes. Since 2019, content moving internationally is up 60%, the number of files transferred is up 111% and the average file size is up more than 67%. Are you prepared for where your files are moving next? 

If you’ve been following Signiant for a while, you may recall our first SaaS product, Media Shuttle, launched in 2012, making it easy for people to send and share large files fast.  

A few years ago, we added Jet to bring powerfully simple automation to the Signiant Platform. Customers can now manage any content flow operation, whether between people, across systems, with partners or to, from, and between cloud storage endpoints — all from a single platform.   

Last year, we highlighted Media Engine, our media management service that lets you search, preview, and interact with media assets across all your Signiant-connected storage.   

This year is about bringing it all together. We will be showcasing several advancements on the Signiant Platform that highlight how broadcasters, production houses, sports leagues and more are using the platform in new ways to create efficiencies.  

Stop by Booth W1931 to learn how Signiant is enabling content workflows globally with examples from live sports production, post-production, global distribution and more. Signiant adds value and simplicity to even the most sophisticated workflows.
