Through an embedded partnership with FileCatalyst, ToolsOnAir is able to add further efficiency and time savings to client workflows by integrating the FileCatalyst UDP-based acceleration technology into its just:control application. ToolsOnAir just:control is a control and monitoring application enabling failover control when using redundant playout. Incorporating FileCatalyst’s core transport technology within just:control enables accelerated file transfers, at rates of up to 10 Gbps, while also ensuring the reliable and secure delivery of customers’ digital content. The FileCatalyst accelerated file transfer protocol offers incredible speed gains versus traditional methods, allowing user transfer speeds of up to 138x faster than FTP.

“The FileCatalyst core transport technology is a valuable addition to many of our clients in the media and broadcast industry” said Walter Kuntner, CEO of ToolsOnAir. “By partnering with FileCatalyst, we are able to continue to offer our customers the latest and most valuable solutions, and meet their workflow demands for increasingly powerful, sophisticated technology.”
