Intelligent file transfer software company Signiant will be demonstrating advancements across its entire product line at IBC2018 on stand 14.B23.

The company’s broadly-adopted SaaS platform, which combines Signiant’s patented network optimisation technology with a feature-rich global control framework for the exchange of media, can be readily adapted to support emerging industry standards and practices.

The power of this platform will be evident at IBC2018, where Signiant will introduce a new ‘IMF Aware’ interface and demonstrate best practices for cloud ingest portals – two important use cases that are growing fast.

As media enterprises embrace IMF (Interoperable Master Format) to support the increasingly complex challenge of creating, managing, and distributing many versions of a media asset, Signiant is at the forefront of implementing intelligent solutions to support this new standard. The company’s Media Shuttle SaaS solution naturally enables IMF workflows by providing fast, seamless global access to a shared pool of content.

With more and more IMF assets being migrated into Media Shuttle portals, customers are looking to Signiant to help minimise some of the intrinsic challenges of working with IMF packages. Signiant’s new ‘IMF Aware’ functionality being introduced at IBC2018 streamlines IMF workflows by simplifying the process of accessing the assets required for the creation of a specific version.

In addition, Signiant will demonstrate the advanced functionality that has enabled Media Shuttle to become the solution of choice for cloud ingest portal use cases. As cloud technology becomes mainstream in media, the highly customised ingest applications deployed by early adopters are increasingly being retired in favor of off-the-shelf, multi-tenant SaaS solutions.

With a simple user interface, built-in acceleration, and metadata capture capabilities, Media Shuttle provides customers with a customizable out-of-the-box cloud ingest portal. With Media Shuttle, there’s no need to deploy or manage software in the cloud, run web servers, or design and maintain bespoke software – resulting in dramatically lower total cost of ownership. Combined with unique patented features such as CloudSpex for pre-transfer delivery spec compliance, these factors have contributed to the widespread move away from custom-built, single-tenant cloud ingest portals toward Media Shuttle.
