Reflecting the growing trend of global file-based workflows, Signiant announced the wide adoption of their Media Shuttle hybrid SaaS (software-as-a-service) file transfer service and new enterprise-related features that make incorporating Signiant into a large facilities a possibility for more companies. The only hybrid SaaS available today, Signiant focuses on making file transfer scalable, flexible and affordable for everyone.


SIGNIANT FLIGHT
Reflecting a growing confidence and reliance on cloud workflows, Signiant told me about the significant adoption of their hybrid SaaS solution, Flight. Flight accelerates the movement of large data sets into and out of cloud storage with an emphasis on low costs, scalability and ease of use. Flight allows users to upload or download big files at up to 200 times the speed of a standard transfer.

"As cloud adoption continues and file sizes keep growing, organizations are facing increasingly complex decisions about storage and data movement," said Margaret Craig, CEO, Signiant. "They require the flexibility to store files wherever makes the most sense for their business and budget, and the peace of mind that those files are secure. During the last year, our customers have come to rely on Signiant Flight, and we are excited to offer these new features to meet their evolving needs."

At NAB Signiant brought additional features to the service including enhanced encryption and storage independence. With end to end encryption and validation from third parties, Signiant brings new levels of security to the Flight service. And the storage agnostic platform allows customers to choose where their content is stored -- switch cloud vendors, use multiple services, whatever works best for their needs.

Initially developed for Amazon S3, Flight is now available for Microsoft Azure blob storage and will soon be offered for Google Cloud Platform and other cloud platforms.



MEDIA SHUTTLE ENTERPRISE UPDATES
Signiant's Media Shuttle file transfer service has seen a continued wide adoption across the industry, leading the company to introduce more enterprise features. This includes auto delivery, metadata, and Active Directory support. For unattended delivery, Auto Delivery allows content to be delivered without the need to check for it manually. This allows folders for automatic upload or download to exist on each end of the transfer.

With new metadata support, Media Shuttle allows end users to populate predefined fields with information describing the file they are about to send. The metadata remains associated with the file, making it easy for a person or process to take action upon receipt. For example, someone in the media library can archive the file in an appropriate category, or an automated workflow can send it to a particular distribution partner.

And with Active Directory support, single sign on with SAML (Security Assertion Markup Language) allows system administrators to engage a third-party Web identity provider to grant users access to multiple systems. This contemporary approach to enabling the use of a corporate directory for user authentication has benefits for both administrators and end users.



MODERN VIDEOFILM AND HARBOR PICTURE COMPANY ADOPT SIGNIANT
For further evidence of Signiant's growing adoption in the media industry, the company announced the adoption of their service by major facilities Modern VideoFilm and Harbor Picture Company.

Used on USA Network's "DIG", "Grand Budapest Hotel", "Game of Thrones", "St. Vincent" and many others, Signiant Media Shuttle allowed for teams all over the world to quickly move the media created in file-based workflows quickly in a critical part of the workflow.

"We tried many different file transfer solutions but found that none fit our needs. We chose Media Shuttle, which was recommended as a leading solution that offers a client-friendly user experience," said Zak Tucker, President of Harbor Picture Company. "We have now come to rely on Signiant to easily and quickly move all of our content files, and are confident that the solution will continue to scale with us as our business expands."

Kylee Peña's NAB 2016 Review: It's The Little Things

Kylee Peña's NAB 2016 Review: It's The Little Things

This was not an exciting year for the National Association of Broadcasters conference in Las Vegas, says Creative COW Associate Editor Kylee Peña, but that doesn't mean it wasn't important. The “exciting” stuff isn’t what affects post production workflow the most, at least not immediately. Kylee notes that we may not even know NAB 2016's most important announcements for a few more years. After all, it might have been a long time after the introduction of 4K or even HD at NABs past before those mattered to YOU. So as important as NAB is, that's why it's important not to lose sight of the things that matter the other 51 weeks of the year.
