September 16, 2013—Unlimi-Tech Software, the pioneer in accelerated file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst, the world’s leading accelerated file transfer solution, is pleased to announce an embedded partnership agreement with FocalPoint Server. FileCatalyst’s UDP-based file transfer acceleration technology may now be easily integrated into the leading media management system, allowing for data transfer speeds of up to 10 Gbps.

The FocalPoint Server is a project-based file management system for media companies handling large volumes of digital assets.

FileCatalyst’s integration with FocalPoint Server offers the additional feature of accelerated file transfer, paired with a straightforward user experience for companies to quickly and easily share media files. The file transfer technology behind the FileCatalyst platform enables organizations in the media and entertainment space to quickly transfer large format digital assets, allowing for reduced production cycles and eliminating file transfer bottlenecks.

“FocalPoint’s integration with FileCatalyst was straightforward and easy, providing users with an accelerated file transfer capability,” says Ken Bell, FocalPoint CEO. “FocalPoint Server now offers our customers the fastest file transfers in media in high latency environments.”

“We are excited to partner with FocalPoint Server to offer accelerated file transfer capabilities to their client organizations,” says Alan Atkinson, VP of Business Development at Unlimi-Tech. “As the size of media file continues to grow, large digital assets often send data transfers to a screeching halt when using traditional methods of sending files, like email or FTP. This is why accelerated file transfer is becoming more and more necessary in the media and entertainment industry.”

FileCatalyst will be demonstrating its accelerated and managed file transfer solutions at the upcoming IBC2013 Exhibition at the RAI Amsterdam taking place from September 13 to 17 at stand 7.H40. FocalPoint Server will also be exhibiting at the IBC2013 Exhibition, showcasing its project-based file management system at stand 7.J15c.
