Using Signiant, NFL Films footage from each game can be uploaded to a secure, shared, digital storage folder to be reviewed and edited by NFL Network employees. These clips are then securely sent across a high-speed, Wide Area Network (WAN) spanning almost 3,000 miles.
NBC chose Signiant software because of its process automation capabilities. After content is successfully delivered, a confirmation of receipt is automatically generated so that the URLs can be published. Because the volume of content was large, automation of workflows, job monitoring and delivery receipts were critical to deliver the Winter Games online successfully.
“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!
