FileCatalyst: A Game Changer
Transfer exceptionally clear images, no matter the file size, faster than ever before with FileCatalyst.
FileCatalyst is a file transfer accelerator used by media professionals to send files from anywhere, to anywhere, in less time than ever before.
As video resolution – and file sizes – increase to make viewers at home feel like they’re in the arena, you need a file transfer solution that can move those images quickly and reliably. If history and the evolution of technology in media and broadcast have taught us anything, it’s that technology is constantly advancing – and that means file sizes keep getting larger.
What started with standard broadcasting has quickly moved to HD to 1080P – and now 4K and beyond. What does each of these increases have in common? As resolution becomes more detailed, file sizes are growing larger as well – and it shows no signs of slowing down. Live event production, especially the sports broadcasting industry, has pushed the envelope even further to give sports fans the best experience possible.
