FileCatalyst partners with Vizrt for secure, reliable and accelerated file transfers
September 3, 2014—Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc., a pioneer in managed file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst, an Emmy® Award winning accelerated file transfer solution, is pleased to announce an integrated partner agreement with Vizrt, a leading digital media solutions provider.
Headquartered in Bergen, Norway, Vizrt provides real-time 3D graphics, studio automation, sports analysis, and asset management tools for the broadcast industry. Vizrt provides customers with complete packages, including hardware, professional services, installations, and support.
Vizrt’s Viz One media asset management system is capable of using FileCatalyst to receive and ingest media. Transfers are monitored using FileCatalyst's API and media can be automatically imported into the system upon receipt. The Viz One web-based and highly-scalable architecture allows for system deployments across large geographic regions - with many users connecting remotely. The combination of FileCatalyst's UDP-based file transfer technology with Viz One’s flexible asset management capabilities expand the distributed and remote workflow options for Viz One users. Users can now transfer files 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 many times faster than FTP, and in some cases over hundreds of times faster.
“We’re committed to remaining on the leading edge of media and broadcast technology,” said Petter Ole Jakobsen, CTO at Vizrt. “Our customers submit, share, and transfer large files regularly, often around the globe. Integrating FileCatalyst provides them with a reliable and secure solution that works fluidly with the packages we provide.”
“We’re excited to integrate with Vizrt and be part of their packages,” said Alan Atkinson, Unlimi-Tech’s Vice President of Business Development. “This partnership is a good fit, as the media and broadcast companies Vizrt works with are large, global in nature, and require acceleration to meet their ever-increasing requirements.”
