Ottawa, ON

– FileCatalyst, an Emmy® award winning pioneer in managed file transfers and a world-leading accelerated file transfer solution, will exhibit at IBC2017 (7.B21) from September 15-19 at the RAI in Amsterdam.

FileCatalyst will be showcasing all of the latest advancements made to their suite of accelerated file transfer solutions including:

  • Newly updated Graphical User Interfaces (GUI’s) that work with any modern web browser.
  • New consumption based billing, which will be available in per hour and per transferred GB models.
  • FileCatalyst TransferAgent now has the the ability to run on Linux, Windows and OSX as a service, the addition of a two-way file transfer pane, and can now be installed on Windows without the requirement to run as an administrator.
  • FileCatalyst Direct Server now has extended EFS support to OpenStack Swift, CIFS/SMB as well as Oracle Cloud Storage (beta) and improved web-based administration for HotFolder and Server.
  • FileCatalyst Central now the ability to allow users to configure personalized map views of their deployment (either geographical or functional maps), real time time and historical transfer data for all nodes, node-to-node-transfers and TransferAgent support.
  • FileCatalyst Workflow has now integrated TransferAgent for file areas, a video file preview feature, and embeddable upload forms.

“FileCatalyst is entering an exciting period,” says Chris Bailey, Co-Founder and CEO of FileCatalyst.“Our portfolio has not only seen an update to the GUI’s, but we are happy to include a number of new features that our customers have requested. This year has also seen growth within our ISV ecosystem, as well as our channel partner portfolio. We are thrilled that people are seeking out FileCatalyst and that we are seen as an added value to their solutions.”

FileCatalyst has also developed a number of ISV partnerships that include:

Acembly and FileCatalyst have partnered to create Acembly File Accelerator (AFA), Powered by FileCatalyst. AFA accelerates file transfers to and from the cloud, and includes a new consumption (per GB) based model.

The new FileCatalyst Kyno plugin adds the ability to define elaborate acceptance rules for folders monitored by FileCatalyst HotFolder in the blink of an eye. Operators can use criteria including video or audio codec, frame rate, scan type (interlaced/progressive), bitrate, resolution, duration, number of audio tracks and many other technical metadata to define filter rules.

FileCatalyst is now available within Woody in2it, Woody Ingest and Woody Outgest. This integration allows for accelerated file transfers across all 3 solutions. This integration is also available for the usage of Woody products in multi-site architectures, as well as on the field.

The company is also announcing a number of new channel partners including Mediability (Scandinavia), Broadcast Solutions (Germany), GTC (Portugal), Video Signal (Italy), Wecom Global (Middle East), MM Communications (Russia), Tera Adria Technology (Balkans), and Offtech (Belarus).
