Media Exchange

Advancements in imaging technology mean that file sizes are growing steadily. At the same time, those files need to be transferred more often throughout the production, postproduction ad distribution process. The result is a greater need for media exchange solutions that enable fast, reliable distribution of large files – without sacrificing content security, acceleration, or ease of use.

The media and entertainment industry has been working to keep up with this challenge for almost 20 years – ever since the transition from tape to file-based workflows began. From the beginning, Signiant has worked alongside the world’s largest media enterprises, developing advanced on-premises file transfer solutions that facilitate accelerated media exchange.

Since then, Signiant has become a pioneer in SaaS solutions in this space, been awarded multiple patents, and even an Emmy. Over the years, our powerful technology has continued to evolve, meeting and exceeding the challenges of secure media exchange posed by the cloud revolution. Our intelligent media exchange software helps the world’s top content creators and distributors ensure fast, secure delivery of large files over public and private networks.

Sending and receiving large files over long distances is generally not possible with standard IP technology. But Signiant’s patented acceleration technology, including on-premises software and SaaS solutions, transfer petabytes of high-value data between users, applications, and systems every day.

Signiant’s media exchange solutions improve on standard Internet transmission speeds – increasing the speed of large file transfer up to 200% when compared to standard methods (such as HTTP and FTP —by eliminating the impact of latency and effectively utilize available bandwidth. And, we’ve continued improving our core acceleration and security technologies as we’ve move into cloud-based software development.

The result? The world’s first SaaS large file transfer solution – Media Shuttle.

Media Shuttle is built upon Signiant’s core acceleration, reliability and security technology. Its contemporary architecture extends and enhances the core transport functionality, creating an easy-to-use, simple-to-deploy solution for large file media exchange.
