Large capacity, high-performance file transfer — but without the headache


said no one ever

File Transfer is uniquely challenging for Media & Entertainment

Don't get slowed down by a solution that is not tailored to your needs

From production to post-production to VFX, media companies have highly-specialized requirements when it comes to sharing and transferring files with remote collaborators.

Un­common­ly Huge Files

Moving multi-gigabyte or terabyte-sized files is still tricky

Chang­ing Traffic Demands

Some days, your file transfer load is steady-state. Other days, it’s a deluge.

Lots of Collab­ora­tors

Your project team is growing inside your office (or hemisphere) and outside.

Content Security

With so many collaborators and prying eyes, moving your precious content both quickly AND securely is challenging

There are a number of software and cloud-based solutions to these challenges. But they can be slow, consume network bandwidth, or require elaborate software and server installations that are expensive to implement and secure. And many of these products would not easily meet the rigorous audit standards of the major studios and M&E trade organizations.

And sure, you could also consider overnighting hard drives through a courier services too. But would that really help you sleep at night?
