LEXINGTON, MA — Signiant, Inc. (www.signiant.com) launches three major platform advancements at NAB 2017. Focused on aligning with customers’ top technical and operational priorities, the company showcases new developments in accelerated transport to the cloud, universal access for the entire ecosystem and storage choice. These capabilities further Signiant’s mission to provide the distributed media enterprise with fast, secure, reliable global access to their content — no matter where it is created or stored.
Signiant unveils what it’s calling a “revolutionary” new transport architecture that brings the company’s acceleration technology to standard HTTP(S) transfers. Designed for a cloud-centric, standards-focused world, the recently patented scale-out architecture delivers multi-gbps throughput to cloud storage, over any distance. This standards-based approach allows customers to easily accelerate transfers via familiar interfaces such as Web browsers or CLIs and SDKs from cloud vendors. A further benefit is the ability to seamlessly optimize delivery of either file-based content or live video feeds over the same link, ensuring speed, reliability and security for all media transfers – as well as compatibility with emerging IP production environments.
For the broadest possible access to content, Signiant is also introducing functionality that enables authorized users to access their files from anywhere, on any device, without any special software on the user’s computer. While most users engage with Signiant systems via an installed application or browser plug-in to take advantage of accelerated transport, there are some situations where this is impractical. By accommodating users who want to use a mobile device or are unable to install software, Signiant enables adoption across the entire media ecosystem. System administrators can maintain full control and visibility of every transfer, while all end users enjoy a simple, uniform experience.
