Complex workflows often involve diverse teams of partners and collaborators exchanging files in the fastest time possible. FTP no longer delivers the speed and operational simplification needed so we must now turn to acceleration technology geared towards media file transfer to meet the demands of modern media workflows.

The internet has been the saviour for many people needing to work from home. Through remote working, cloud computing and virtualization, they’ve been able to complete many, if not all of their tasks without needing to travel to the studio or production facility. However, much of the work involves file transfer for huge and complex media files that do not lend themselves well to traditional IT protocols.

Security, accuracy of delivery, and high transfer speeds all demand an easy-to-use integrated solution that encourages and supports collaboration and remote working. Providing forensic audit trails are a necessity for any studio or post-production facility working with high-value content, rights owners need to know where their content is, who has it, and what they’re doing with it.

This Core Insight, sponsored by Signiant, discusses the intricacies of file transfer and delivery in modern broadcast and post-production facilities. It describes workflows, working practices and how secure and high-speed file transfer is achieved.

Download this Core Insight now if you are a remote worker, engineer, technologist, their manager, or somebody who needs to improve workflow efficiencies for high-speed and secure file transfer.
