​Sony’s Crispin TV Networks Accelerates File Transfer

Date Expedition’s software offers fast and reliable content distribution directly between Crispin’s stations across the US.

Sony-owned Crispin has integrated Data Expedition (DEI) MTP/IP (Multipurpose Transaction Protocol) accelerated file transfer software technology into its LoadingDock to streamline content delivery.

According to Crispin’s CTO, Jim Zagrobelny, Data Expedition’s “flexible API, easy integration, and reasonable deployment costs made the decision to incorporate their software into LoadingDock very easy.”

LoadingDock tools give broadcasters and cable operators the capability to automatically acquire content, upload content to the cloud, prep with proxy clips, designate automated workflows for distribution, and more. Designated as ‘primary’ or ‘backup,’ stations can maximize the web-based resources they require by configuring the system based on individual location needs.

For Crispin’s LoadingDock, MTP/IP adds accelerated file transfers within a station group or “dock to dock.” This makes it possible for the ‘primary’ to grant permission to each ‘backup’ LoadingDock for material retrieval, as fast as the network and storage infrastructure can go. LoadingDock also allows stations to configure bandwidth allocation and the automatic distribution does the rest.
