BURLINGTON, MA (July 24, 2012) — Signiant, the market leader in intelligent file movement software for the media and entertainment industry, today announced the release of its new Media Shuttle™ file delivery solution, including a free 14-day trial available at www.mediashuttle.com. Introduced at the 2012 NAB Show, Media Shuttle’s patent-pending cloud connector technology gives media workgroups the convenience and ease of use of public cloud file-sharing services, but without file size limits or security risks associated with storing high-value assets in the cloud. Monthly subscription-based pricing makes Media Shuttle an ideal solution for production projects, and lets organizations easily scale usage as needed.
An effective alternative to FTP or unmanaged, point-to-point file transfer products for sending large media files, Media Shuttle offers the same industry-leading security and acceleration protocols for high-speed file transfers as Signiant’s enterprise infrastructure products. Unlike services that store content in the public cloud, Media Shuttle provides an easy-to-use file delivery interface in the cloud but keeps content within the secure control of the enterprise network – with centralized visibility of transfers, including job status, bandwidth usage and user activity.
“Designed with extensive market feedback, Media Shuttle is the perfect solution for any size media operation – from small post houses with little or no IT staff of their own to large media enterprises looking to reduce the IT support requirements for large numbers of internal and external users,” said Rick Clarkson, Vice President of Product Management at Signiant. “Media Shuttle lets operations managers create powerful file delivery environments with no restrictions on file size while IT professionals have the peace of mind that the organization’s content is safe and secure.”
Media Shuttle is available immediately in two versions: Media Shuttle Standard Edition, a downloadable single-portal solution for project teams up to 50; and Media Shuttle Enterprise Edition, a multi-portal solution scalable to thousands of users. Easy-to-use branding tools allow media operations or project leaders to customize their own file transfer portal with graphics and logos, configure notifications and language settings, and invite users to become instantly productive. Building on the capabilities of Media Shuttle Standard Edition, Media Shuttle Enterprise Edition is designed to ease organizational IT support requirements with added features for delegated administration, pooled user access, storage management and server load balancing to ensure optimal performance across multiple file transfer portals.
