Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning play a larger role in the media industry every day, but many don’t fully understand their mechanisms or benefits. In this webcast, Signiant CTO Ian Hamilton explains that DSP and ML share many common math and technology building blocks.
One of the challenges faced in the M&E business is that it’s not that easy to just “take your work home with you.” This guide shares seven important considerations to keep in mind while implementing a remote working strategy that supports a distributed media workforce.
There are plenty of practical ML and AI applications in use today, and the pace of innovation is moving at a fast clip. Understandably, no business wants to be left behind.
On the surface, it may seem that moving large files from one location to another is relatively simple and that a faster pipe is all you need, but it turns out there’s much more to it. Learn why a bigger pipe doesn’t lead to faster file transfers and how to get the most out of your network.

“Two different networks who want to come to our facility and shoot over the next two to six weeks, one of the first questions they asked was, “What is your COVID-19 policy? I never really thought about that, but we have to come up with one.”
“Time. I think it’s the biggest challenge. It’s been frantic. It’s been so frantic. Every day is just inventive in a way. Trying to get everything done within an unknown timetable and deploying technology at a slightly wider scale than we’ve done before.”
Over the past year, Signiant’s development team has been focusing on a few new significant additions to Manager+Agents. In addition to system-to-system automations, you can now also automate workflows to people and to and from the cloud, as well as support local object storage and growing files.
Signiant’s accelerated file transfer solutions are designed to optimize transfers based on file and storage type, distance, and network conditions, to make sure you get the most out of all available bandwidth. And, the bigger the pipe, the more we can help!
