June 10, 2014—Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc., a pioneer in managed file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst, a world leading accelerated file transfer solution, today announces an integration partner agreement with Media-Alliance, the market leading supplier of media management and workflow solutions.

Established in 2005 by a team of broadcast television and media industry engineers, Media-Alliance is a leader in developing software that empowers broadcasters to produce and manage digital media with multi-platform and multi-format file-based workflows.

Media-Alliance has developed BORNEO (standing for Born-New) as a single integrated and modular application offering media asset management; newsroom; workflow and metadata management; content processing; and archiving and delivery based on a unique blend of new technology and a unique experience in delivering and supporting high value solutions for the world’s most demanding customers.

Media-Alliance FileCatalyst logosFileCatalyst allows users to send digital content at an accelerated rate, providing transfers in minutes as opposed to hours or days, regardless of size or format. FileCatalyst’s patent pending UDP-based file transfer technology enables file transfer at maximum line speed, despite network constraints such as packet loss and latency. Traditional methods of transfer are unable to keep up when managing today’s large media files; by contrast, the FileCatalyst protocol offers incredible transfer speeds up to thousands of times faster than FTP while maintaining reliability and security. Integrating the FileCatalyst technology with BORNEO is a seamless operation, allowing users to accelerate file transfers securely and reliably within a workflow.

“We’ve always prided ourselves in developing complex tools to solve challenges met by media and entertainment professionals,” said Giovanni Soldi, Managing Director at Media-Alliance. “Integrating with FileCatalyst allows us to incorporate fast file transfers while still maintain our values and continuing to provide industry leading solutions to hundreds of clients across the globe.”

“We’re excited to be partnering with Media-Alliance as they strive to improve media management and workflow solutions globally,” said Unlimi-Tech’s Vice President of Business Development, Alan Atkinson. “This partnership is a great pairing, with both companies offering essential services to the media and broadcast industry, enabling added value for customers, who are able to get what they need in one simple package.”
