Media-optimised

FileRunner is designed to work with your existing workflow and toolsets. It uses multithreaded parallel TCP uploads which maximises the throughput of your available bandwidth no matter what you’re sending. Whether you’re transferring directories of frame sequences or large, individual files, we’ve got you covered.

Hassle-free

Getting your team set up on FileRunner is fast and simple. There’s nothing to download or install on your machine to get started, and no expensive server installs to invest in: all you need is a web browser and a basic internet connection. It’s simple to use, so most users won’t require any training at all.

“We explored the options really carefully for security reasons. All the major studios are understandably super conscious of confidentiality. Gentle Giant is Marvel and Disney-approved because of the way we have set up our cloud-based storage and delivery systems”

Kim Lavery
