“Elements no longer need to wait to be copied and packaged on hard drives and sent via couriers or truck from location to location,” explains Anthony Magliocco, who was recently hired as director of media products for AboveNet. “JabNet community members just make a few clicks and the files are moving at Gigabit per second speeds.” This equates to about 500 times faster than most home modems.

Instead of looking at tiny proxy images sent over the Internet, JabNet members can now send high definition – or larger – content, which can be viewed on large screens.

Infrastructure is currently set up to support the production and post communities in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York and London. Members subscribe to the service and can then exchange media with other JabNet members.
