Signiant to Demonstrate New Technology Enhancements to Accelerate Workflows at HPA Creative Tech UK

Soho all lit up at night.

LEXINGTON, MA – May 31, 2018 – At the 2018 HPA Creative Tech UK, Signiant Inc, a market leader in intelligent file transfer, will demonstrate new, innovative capabilities that expand the value of its products within the media industry.

Signiant has led the way in cloud-native design, offering a category-defining SaaS platform that provides fast, secure global access to high-value media assets stored in on-premises storage or cloud-based storage. New innovations on show at the 2018 HPA Creative Tech UK greatly build on this platform and helps media and entertainment companies of all sizes speed up their operations by leveraging Signiant’s patented file acceleration technology, as well as by automating and simplifying file transfer workflows.

Hosted as a one-day event on June 27, 2018, at the Ham Yard Hotel, Soho, London, HPA Creative Tech UK will bring together the UK media tech community for a symposium focusing on the intersection of leading-edge technology and the frontiers of creativity. The knowledge exchange at HPA Creative Tech UK aims to challenge assumptions and inspire ambitious new projects and collaborations within the ever-changing world of content creation and distribution.

In the Innovation Zone, Signiant will demonstrate technology enhancements to its SaaS platform that allows professional media assets stored on the platform to be played over long distance networks at higher bit rates than achievable with current streaming approaches. The demonstration leverages transfer acceleration technology and cloud-native design to ensure a highly responsive end user experience without additional customer-deployed hardware or software.

“When we first previewed this technology at the HPA Tech Retreat back in February the feedback was fantastic and the industry was able to really see how these innovations have the potential to help users make better and faster decision when transferring media,” said Ian Hamilton, CTO, Signiant. “We’re looking forward to showcasing this technology to a UK audience and highlighting how valuable time and resources can be saved because of it.”

Signiant CTO Ian Hamilton will be on-site at HPA Creative Tech UK to provide a preview of these exciting new innovations, as well as to discuss the breadth of technology and capabilities across Signiant’s entire product line.
