Signiant Introduces Mobile File Sharing Apps for Media Exchange

BURLINGTON, MA (January 18, 2012) — Signiant, a global provider of solutions that automate, accelerate and manage the secure transfer of file-based content for the media and entertainment industry, today announced the availability of mobile apps for iPhone® and iPad® users that further extend access to Media Exchange™ (MX), Signiant’s award-winning file transfer solution. Available today from the Apple® App Store at no charge to new and existing MX users, the apps make it easier than ever for authorized users to share important content securely via popular mobile devices.

To download Signiant apps, users authorized on MX servers running version 9.4.1 or higher can search the Apple App Store for “Signiant” or “Media Exchange” and follow the customary download steps. Once downloaded, an MX user logs in with the same credentials as they would use with their browser or desktop client, and can select the channels of content to which they wish to subscribe. Mobile app users receive unattended updates as they become available without having to check for new content or wait for downloads, and can upload content from their iPhone or iPad to users or preselected channels.

“The process of capturing and creating content is increasingly happening on the fly, away from the office — whether it’s a reporter with a smartphone or the producer’s assistant reviewing dailies from home at night,” said Rick Clarkson, vice president of product management at Signiant. “Extending access to popular mobile devices provides unprecedented flexibility in how users access Media Exchange, while ensuring the same level of security and acceleration that media and entertainment organizations require.”
