Signiant Inc will be demonstrating advancements across its entire product line at IBC2018. The company’s SaaS platform, which combines Signiant’s patented network optimization technology with a feature-rich global control framework for the exchange of media, can be readily adapted to support emerging industry standards and practices. Signiant will introduce a new ‘IMF Aware’ interface and demonstrate best practices for cloud ingest portals.
As media enterprises embrace IMF (Interoperable Master Format) to support the increasingly complex challenge of creating, managing, and distributing many versions of a media asset, Signiant is at the forefront of implementing intelligent solutions to support this new standard. The company’s Media Shuttle SaaS solution enables IMF workflows by providing fast, seamless global access to a shared pool of content.
In addition, Signiant will demonstrate the advanced functionality of Media Shuttle. With a simple user interface, built-in acceleration, and metadata capture capabilities, Media Shuttle provides customers with a customizable out-of-the-box cloud ingest portal. With Media Shuttle, there’s no need to deploy or manage software in the cloud, run web servers, or design and maintain bespoke software – resulting in lower total cost of ownership. Combined with patented features such as CloudSpex™ for pre-transfer delivery spec compliance, these factors have contributed to the widespread move away from custom-built, single-tenant cloud ingest portals toward Media Shuttle.
“The media business continues to change at a rapid pace, and Signiant is uniquely positioned to respond rapidly,” said Rick Clarkson, Chief Strategy Officer of Signiant. “Our cloud-native SaaS architecture makes it possible for us to innovate continuously and quickly deliver new functionality to our customers. With this agile model and a very broadly deployed platform, Signiant plays a pivotal role in driving the adoption of new standards and practices across the entire global media supply chain. IMF and cloud ingest are natural use cases for our platform and great examples of its powerful impact on the media ecosystem.”
