December 18, 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 a partner agreement with MOG Technologies, a file-based broadcast workflow solutions provider.
For over a decade, MOG has provided IT solutions to broadcasters to increase the overall performance of workflows while migrating to file-based environments and ensuring high interoperability between systems and formats.

In today’s broadcast and post-production environments, there is the need to constantly handle a great amount of files that are spread over large geographical distances or between different organizations. Since the fast and reliable delivery of files is crucial for these workflows, MOG will be addressing its customer needs by adding FileCatalyst unique acceleration capabilities to mxfSPEEDRAIL file-based workflows.
This partnership will allow MOG Technologies’ to further automate delivery/reception capabilities of its current file-based Ingest, SD-HD/SDI capture, digital delivery and real time playback solutions. The aim is to enable users to achieve the highest performance in their workflows, whenever there is the need to transfer vast amounts of media files at blazing speeds, eliminating any bottleneck on the file transfer during the delivery/reception process.
FileCatalyst's UDP-based file transfer technology executes digital media transfers at maximum rates without being impeded by network impairments, such as latency and packet loss experienced with TCP/IP, meaning a perfect complement to mxfSPEEDRAIL innovative features.
