February 13, 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 embedded partner agreement with Cambridge Imaging Systems Ltd provide ultra-fast, secure and reliable delivery of files across the internet for media publishing.
Based in the United Kingdom, Cambridge Imaging Systems has served both corporate and government clients including the Ministry of Defence, the Police, BFI, the BBC, ITN, IMG, Endemol, the Imperial War Museum and British Pathe. Cambridge’s archive management system Imagen enables users to manage audio, video and image files online from accession and ingest all the way through to publishing online in a secure, branded web interface. Imagen enables users to manage very large collections of media files for libraries and museums, commercial clip libraries, photo, sound and film collections.
As a FileCatalyst integration partner, FileCatalyst's UDP-based file transfer acceleration technology has been integrated into the Imagen platform to speed the transfer of digital assets within the tool. This integration eliminates slow digital media transfers and ensures the reliable and secure delivery of all media files, a feature ideal for organisations such as news agencies wishing to quickly aggregate and publish video content from reporters based in remote locations, and broadcasters with multiple departments and satellite offices wishing to securely upload media to a central media asset management store.
“The efficient transfer and management of media files is a top priority for today’s digital media professionals,” said Tom Blake, CEO. “FileCatalyst’s integration into Imagen gives the best of both worlds for our users in terms of media archiving and delivery, while also providing a seamless user experience for additional user efficiency.”
