FileCatalyst Partners with Suitcase TV to Accelerate Digital Workflows
April 8, 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 partnership with Suitcase TV, a media specialist offering market-leading and cost effective products for every stage of the digital workflow.
Suitcase TV, founded in 2000 and based in Ipswich, UK, delivers a complete end-to-end MAM system in a single device. The company offers a full range of broadcast and media products for every stage of the digital and media workflow, including functionality from ingest, QC, metadata capture, transcoding and publish to multiple destinations to intelligent archiving. Suitcase TV’s innovative products ensure complete flexibility, scalability, and significant ROI.
In adding additional value to their complete MAM solution, Suitcase TV sought to offer a faster end-to-end workflow and selected FileCatalyst as an integration partner to accelerate data transfer rates for their users. FileCatalyst's UDP-based file transfer technology moves digital media at maximum rates without being slowed by network latency and packet transmission overhead experienced with TCP/IP. The FileCatalyst accelerated file transfer protocol offers exceptional speed gains versus traditional methods, allowing user transfer speeds that can be up to 100 times faster.
“With the ever increasing size of digital assets along with regional disperse collaboration, the need for a more effective method to transfer files was needed,” said David Atkins, Technical Director of Suitcase TV. “Integrating with FileCatalyst has added new, valuable capabilities of accelerated file transfer for our clients.”
"We’re thrilled to be partnering with Suitcase TV to offer accelerated file transfer through their integrated MAM solution," said Alan Atkinson, Vice President of Business Development at Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc. "The partnership between FileCatalyst and Suitcase TV is a good fit, as the media files the Suitcase TV MAM manages are large in nature and require acceleration to meet the ever-increasing workflow requirements of today’s media producers.”
