easy file transfer

File transfer is an important part of many media businesses. During production and post-production cycles, you need to move media across the globe securely and quickly all while keeping its quality high. FTP has been a standard method of large file transfer, but this 40+ year-old technology is slow and difficult to maintain. Signiant offers excellent FTP alternatives, state of the art software applications to move large file-based media across the internet.

File transfer is at its easiest with our newest product, Media Shuttle. Sending files with Media Shuttle is as simple as dragging, dropping, and clicking a button. Users won’t need a tutorial; Media Shuttle explains itself. To see how easy Media Shuttle is to use, try sending a file.

Signiant is interested in keeping our customers up to date on our latest software and industry information. In the following articles, learn about easy file transfer and why broadcasting and post-production companies like TG4, Envy Post, and IBC all use Signiant software.
