transfer big files

Some companies only need to transfer small data documents daily, but there are certain industries that need to transfer big files. Raw video files from long shoots can easily be a terabyte. On dial-up modems, this would have taken years. We’ve come pretty far since the days of dial-up, but moving that big of a file still takes a stable, fast network and a smart file movement process.

If you need to transfer big files regularly, then Signiant’s Managers+Agents offer excellent management capabilities. You can manage and track content movement with guaranteed certified delivery and use file-based workflow modeling and administration to better orchestrate and automate time-consuming tasks. Managers+Agents are flexibile, powerful and reliable—perfect for transferring big files again and again.

Signiant’s newest product for big file transfer, Media Shuttle offers the easiest way to send your big files anywhere. You just drag and drop the file into a custom web page and click transfer. The interface is intuitive, and your big files transfer quickly. The best part of Media Shuttle is that there are no file size limits. You can transfer 10 Gigabyte files, 100 GigaByte files, and even TeraByte size files! Media Shuttle keeps you from worrying about compressing files, breaking them into smaller files, or loading them onto hard disks.

Signiant specifically focuses on extreme file sharing solutions. We want to move big files fast, effortlessly, and securely. We can help you create an advanced automated workflow and transfer big files anywhere at any time. Trust your content with the market leader in intelligent file movement software for media and entertainment. We optimize existing enterprise network infrastructure and provide secure digital media exchanges. Read more about how Signiant has helped companies transfer big files in the following articles.
