FileCatalyst accelerates quality control workflows for Digimetrics in new partnership
April 7, 2014— Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc., a pioneer in managed file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst—the world’s leading accelerated file transfer solution—is pleased to announce an integration partner agreement with Digimetrics, a leading provider of file-based quality control solutions for the broadcast and streaming video industries.
Digimetrics has been focused on delivering the best in file-based quality control (QC) since 2008, using the latest technologies and innovative new developments. Digimetrics' solutions are used by modern media organizations, including major broadcasters, cable operators, VOD providers, and post-production facilities around the world.
Aurora 5 is Digimetrics’ new generation file-based QC product which is being launched at this year's NAB Show. It offers unrivalled scalable speed and a comprehensive test parameter portfolio for media files, including distribution constraints, metadata tests, and baseband quality metrics, with a particular focus on reducing false positives generated by alternative automated QC processes. Aurora 5 is perfect for use in high volume and 4K production workflows for ingest, post-production, VOD, tape conversion, and archival operations.
FileCatalyst provides users with the ability to send digital content at accelerated data transfer rates, meaning file transfers that previously took hours or days happen in minutes, regardless of size or format. FileCatalyst's UDP-based file transfer technology executes digital media transfers at maximum rates regardless of network impairments such as latency and packet loss. While traditional methods of file transfer are unable to keep up with today’s large media files, the FileCatalyst accelerated file transfer protocol offers incredible transfer speeds up to thousands of times faster than FTP.
“We are pleased work with FileCatalyst to offer our mutual customers a solution to meet their accelerated file-based QC and file transfer requirements.” says Phil Eade, Digimetrics, Director, Global Sales and Marketing. “Aurora 5 is designed for easy integration within wider solutions, and this partnership with FileCatalyst provides our clients with an affordable option for the reliable, secure, and accelerated handling of large volumes of media assets.”
"The Digimetrics and FileCatalyst partnership is a great pairing, as both companies are offering something essential and innovative to the broadcasting industry," says Alan Atkinson, Vice President of Business Development at Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc. “This integration helps to deliver additional value for customers, in one simple package.”
