Accelerated Access

At the core of the Signiant Platform is our fast file transfer technology, making distributed pools of content easily accessible and actionable. Via a single unified platform, users can find and interact with their valuable media assets – regardless of storage type and location ⎯ and then move them around the world with speed, reliability, and security. This essential functionality anchors the modern media technology stack, and it’s only available from Signiant.

Deploy & Scale Instantly

A hallmark benefit of Signiant’s cloud-native SaaS products is the ability to scale to any size a business requires – instantly. New tools and services can be up and running today, and your Signiant deployment can dynamically adapt as your business needs inevitably evolve. Do you need more team members on the platform tomorrow? No problem. Need to add and search more storage? Just connect a new content repository and start working with it.

Economies of Scale

Why is the cloud-native, multi-tenant SaaS nature of the Signiant Platform so important to our customers? Simply put, it means our offerings are more affordable, reliable, and easy to deploy. We keep costs low by operating shared large-scale software infrastructure for the entire media industry. We can invest in building a highly resilient system, and we actively monitor and manage the platform 24/7 to make sure services are always available. Everyone wins by sharing these costs.


Open & Modular

The Signiant Platform is an open system populated with modular technology building blocks that customers can pick and choose as needed. You can start using our lightweight, modern media tools for some operations, while also maintaining a legacy MAM or workflow automation system elsewhere… There’s no need for wholesale upfront migration. Simply connect your legacy system to the Signiant Platform via our comprehensive API, and the core file transfer capabilities will be instantly available.

Future-built Architecture

The Signiant Platform is powered by the Software-Defined Content Exchange architecture. SDCX is hybrid SaaS architecture specifically designed to connect media assets with the people and applications that need to access them. SDCX comprises an intelligent cloud control plane for system orchestration and metadata management, tightly coupled to a storage-agnostic data plane for file movement. Modern APIs and a next-generation approach to workflow automation round out the platform.
