FileCatalyst and Wohler RadiantGrid Business Pair Up for Acceleration in Media Automation Platform
September 14, 2013—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 Wohler Technologies. With its RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform™, Wohler offers the broadcast and media industry innovative solutions for highly automated file-based workflows.
Media organizations and networks worldwide use RadiantGrid solutions to simplify and optimize the tasks and workflows commonly involved in today’s media landscape. The Wohler RadiantGrid Intelligent Media Transformation Platform offers a highly efficient solution for transcoding, standards conversion, and audio processing in applications including loudness correction, quality control, and distribution of media. At the heart of the platform is RadiantGrid’s TrueGrid™ parallel-processing engine, which excels at providing faster-than-real-time content transformation, particularly for long-form content requiring multiple concurrent processes.
By partnering with FileCatalyst, Wohler has been able to integrate accelerated file transfer into its RadiantGrid solutions, in turn offering this capability to the platform’s users. FileCatalyst’s acceleration technology enables RadiantGrid users in broadcast networks, motion picture studios, and other organizations to ingest files quickly and reliably from remote or external locations directly to the RadiantGrid platform for a seamless and uninterrupted user experience.
With the FileCatalyst Java applet, users can upload content directly to the RadiantGrid smart folders for intelligent ingestion and media transformation activities. RadiantGrid platform users also can employ FileCatalyst distribution as an outgoing option for distribution management, leveraging FileCatalyst’s acceleration technology to deliver the content to its final destination.
“Every day, accelerated file transfer is becoming an increasingly essential component of media workflow solutions,” said Kirk Marple, chief software architect for Wohler’s RadiantGrid business line. “By partnering with FileCatalyst, we can offer our customers this critical capability as a seamless part of their overall file-based media preparation and delivery workflow.”
“RadiantGrid offers an innovative and fresh approach to media asset and workflow management.” said Alan Atkinson, vice president of business development at Unlimi-Tech Software. “We are pleased to be working with Wohler to help bring the company’s RadiantGrid solution offering to another level within the media and entertainment space.”
