ETERE teams up with FileCatalyst for seamless workflows25 June 2015
ETERE is pleased to announce a partnership agreement with Filecatalyst for accelerated transfer speeds inside ETERE workflow.
The ETERE system handles high volumes of large format media files. Users may encounter difficulties sending and receiving bigger files and large file quantities can become very slow or unreliable to send, especially over large geographical distances.
To transfer files at the highest speed possible, there is therefore the need for an integrated and workflow-driven solution.
WHY ETERE AND FILECATALYST?
ETERE is offering an essential and innovative solution to the broadcasting industry. This integration helps to deliver additional value for the customer, all in one simple tool. The integration of Etere and FileCatalyst enables you to send your files at maximum rates, without being impeded by network impairments, such as latency and packet loss experienced with TCP/IP. Methods of file transfer like FTP and email are not able to keep up with today’s large media files and often leading to failed or never-ending transfers. The FileCatalyst integration accelerated file transfer protocol offers incredible speed versus traditional methods, allowing user transfers faster than FTP. The FileCatalyst-Etere MAM integration takes advantage of the the advanced accelerated file transfer capabilities offered by FileCatalyst, allowing for more seamless media workflows while minimizing the impact on network bandwidth. This integration is capable of intelligently triggering and monitoring FileCatalyst-driven transfers between storage locations, based on workflow occurences and decisions within the Etere MAM system. The result is the efficient management of digital content that is stored at an accelerated pace, thus enhancing productivity.
As such, you enjoy:
■ A totally user-configurable system
