FileCatalyst Speeds Up Delivery of Video Footage In Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2013 Coverage

Unlimi-Tech Software, the pioneer in accelerated file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst, the world’s leading accelerated file transfer solution, is pleased to be the file transfer technology provider, as well as a sponsor, of the Adventure4aCure team in the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2013 race across the Atlantic Ocean.

The Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge 2013 consists of teams competing to row more than 3,000 nautical miles across the Atlantic Ocean. The race route involves rowers beginning at San Sebastiean in La Gomera, The Canary Islands and heading west to Nelson’s Dockyard English Harbour, Antigua.

Competing against 16 other teams, Adventure4aCure is comprised of only Andrew Abrahams, completely unassisted, aiming to cross the Atlantic by rowboat in just 46 days to break the current world record. As a current world record holder as the fastest man in the world to ever row 1 million metres on a Concept 2 rowing machine, Andrew is racing to generate awareness and raise $500,000 for Disadvantaged Children.


Real time footage of event coverage will be captured from Andrew’s tiny 24 foot Ocean Rowing Boat with a Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet 2. Andrew will also be using Quicklink and FileCatalyst to send recorded clips of the journey, where he can easily send photos and videos via satellite to a central location for processing and production.

The FileCatalyst core transport technology ensures that Andrew’s video files are delivered at full line speed over a satellite connection, which can often be troublesome for sending large files. FileCatalyst offers incredible speed gains versus traditional methods, allowing user transfer speeds of up to 138x faster than FTP. The footage will then be broadcast via Seven Networks and also the Adventure4aCure website.
