Signiant’s Chief Technologist Ian Hamilton to Present at BroadcastAsia2012

Session on “Moving Global Content Exchanges to the Cloud” to Focus on Emerging Cloud Architectures for Ensuring Seamless and Secure File Movement

SINGAPORE and BURLINGTON, MA (June 4, 2012) – Signiant, the market leader in intelligent file movement software for the media and entertainment industry, today announced that Ian Hamilton, the company’s Chief Technology Officer, will be a featured speaker at the upcoming BroadcastAsia2012 International Conference. His session entitled “Moving Global Content Exchanges to the Cloud,” will compare today’s private, public and hybrid cloud architectures for enterprise file transfer, including important considerations for content security, acceleration and control.

“In today’s interconnected digital environments, media enterprises of all types have one thing in common: the requirement to move very large content files rapidly, securely and in a carefully controlled fashion,” said Hamilton. “The advent of globally dispersed content supply chains, multiplatform workflow complexities and shrinking distribution windows has stimulated vast digital content flows, and resulted in the need for greater content security and differentiated levels of service for users inside and outside of media organizations. With the emergence of private, public and hybrid cloud technologies, there is no shortage of options.  The key to a successful solution is the ability to understand the differences.”

A featured session in this year’s Cloud Broadcasting track, Hamilton’s presentation will explore the realities of various cloud architectures to help attendees pinpoint the best solution for their organization.  Attendees will also learn how various systems are designed to manage authentication, authorization, data integrity, data confidentiality and non-repudiation for added security at the content, user and network levels.

As an innovator and entrepreneur with decades of industry experience, Hamilton has played a critical role in architecting infrastructure solutions for faster, more secure and managed media file exchanges. Working with some of the broadcast industries’ largest media organizations including BBC, NBC, Deluxe Digital Studios and many others, he has helped Signiant customers devise flexible strategies for maximizing the efficiency and security of file-based media acquisition, automation and distribution.
