​Unlimi-Tech Bows Updated FileCatalyst Direct at IBC

Unlimi-Tech Software is using IBC to debut FileCatalyst Direct 3.5, the latest version of its flagship product which offers users new options to transfer files.

FileCatalyst is also now fully integrated with - and can save data directly to - online file storage Amazon S3, making it easier for users to share large media files in the cloud as opposed to having to store files on premise.

The update offers extended support for dynamic files.  The software compensates for potential file transfer errors, such as those that don’t grow sequentially or are inappropriately modified by certain file formats. The tool can “substantially reduce” the wait for file transfer corrections, and can also retransfer portions of a file that have been modified once the primary transfer is complete. The latter is particularly important for popular file formats used for live sports broadcasts.

“The driving force behind FileCatalyst Direct 3.5 is that media companies of every kind are sharing content globally, and are increasingly using the cloud to do so, but with varying degrees of frustration due to slow, or incomplete, transfers,” said FileCatalyst co-founder / CEO, Chris Bailey. “FileCatalyst 3.5 makes the content sharing process very fast, and much easier with the new transfer tools and user interface we have developed.”

At IBC, FileCatalyst will also demonstrate the next generation of accelerated file transfer tools, including improved features for TransferAgent, a web browser application for highly accelerated file transfer with no reliance on a Java plug-in. Emails, including attachments, can now be sent through TransferAgent and are indistinguishable from a normal email client.

Unlimi-Tech Software is at IBC stand: 7.H37
