send large files online

Many businesses today need to send large files online. FTP has been the dominant solution for sharing large files for many years, but FTP has its limitations. Security is one major concern with FTP, but speed and reliability can also be issues with sending large files through the web, especially when you’re talking multi gigabyte files such as media assets.

Signiant’s extreme file sharing solutions are secure, reliable and up to 200 times faster than FTP or other transfer methods. Our patented Media Shuttle software uses UDP acceleration, which dramatically increases the speed of file transfers by maximizing the network pipe and minimizing latency.

Media Shuttle also offers absolute security during the file transfer process as all security protocols move with the file from the point of origin to the final destination. All user email addresses are fully authenticated, the security is based on Public Key Infrastructure, and is managed with built-in certificate authority. Furthermore, all data is encrypted with up to 256-bit AES encryption.

Best of all, Media Shuttle can be installed in parallel to an existing FTP system, so users can enjoy the simple user interface and speed of the Media Shuttle platform to send large files online without having to worry about migrating content. Try Media Shuttle today to send large files fast.

Signiant worked with Epix to help them develop a system to streamline media workflows and automate back-end processes. The kind of multi-platform approach Epix envisioned requires free-flow of large files between in-house studios, cable and online distribution channels as well as multi-screen end users, and Signiant worked with their team to make this vision a reality. Check out the Epix case study below to learn how Signiant and its partners made it possible for Epix to manage several procurement lifecycles using a single automated platform, and other extreme file sharing adventures.

Now you’re speaking my language: localization, dubbing, and file movement

Agility and adaptability in localization swiftly become an even bigger part of a supply chain when that supply chain encompasses international partnerships and multiple versions of a given piece of media that will need to be crafted, tailored, and distributed.

Why M&E businesses are moving away from online file sharing tools for their valuable media assets

Many of our customers employ both Media Shuttle along with online file sharing tools, using the latter for small in-house files. Still, at the end of the day, the bulk of content that drives the M&E industry is simply not suited for online file sharing tools, and using them can jeopardize security, productivity, and overall success.
