FileCatalyst, TMD partner to accelerate file transfer globally with Mediaflex
June 13, 2014— Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc., a pioneer in managed file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst, a world leading accelerated file transfer solution, is pleased to announce an integration partner agreement with TransMedia Dynamics (TMD), a UK-based company that provides media asset management software solutions and services to the media, broadcast, and archive industries.
As the leading provider of media asset management systems for digital and physical media, TMD is focused on providing an efficient, flexible, and scalable solutions incorporating comprehensive workflows to support business process management. Mediaflex enables broadcast, media, and archive organisations to manage the lifecycle of media from acquisition to archive and everything in between including production, digitisation, storage, repurposing, enrichment, delivery and publishing.
“TMD is committed to remaining at the cutting edge of media, entertainment, and broadcast technologies,” said Carlton Smith, CTO of TMD. “Our software is used by organisations that move large files in large numbers on a daily basis all over the world. We see many issues related to file size and security, network latency, and packet loss. Our clients need to resolve these issues, and FileCatalyst technology does just that. We’re excited to have FileCatalyst integrated into Mediaflex moving forward.”
Moving digital media is unavoidable and as media sizes and digital delivery increase exponentially, traditional methods of file transfer have become noticeably slower and unreliable particularly over geographically diverse locations. However, FileCatalyst’s unique, patent pending UDP-based protocol that is immune to network impairments such as latency and packet loss, accelerates file transfers regardless of size or format, resulting in transfers that take minutes instead of hours or days.
“We are pleased to be a part of TMD’s Mediaflex media asset management system,” said Unlimi-Tech’s Vice President of Business Development, Alan Atkinson. “Partnering with a world-class organisation like TMD is of course good business, but it is also rewarding to see FileCatalyst technology reaching new markets and satisfying new users.”
TMD will be demonstrating the full capabilities of Mediaflex at BroadcastAsia 2014 on Stand 5E4-05 and will also be presenting “How to successfully implement a real-time, file-based workflow” at the Broadcast Engineering and Technology Conference (Track 4) on 19 June as part of the BroadcastAsia Conference 2014.
FileCatalyst will be on booth 5B2-O2 at BroadcastAsia 2014 discussing new product features from June 17-20.
