Ottawa, ON – FileCatalyst, an Emmy® award winning pioneer in managed file transfers and a world leading accelerated file transfer solution, announced today the addition of Inala Broadcast to their existing network of channel partners. Inala Broadcast will distribute the entire FileCatalyst suite of products to their client base across Southern Africa.
Inala Broadcast is a privately owned company, registered in South Africa with operations across Africa. As a broadcast system integrator, Inala Broadcast represents a number of leading international manufacturer’s to the Broadcast markets.
“At Inala Broadcast we regularly consult with our customers to discuss improvements in technology and workflows for all aspects of programme making, play-out and transmission,” said Colin Wainer, CEO Inala Broadcast. “The FileCatalyst portfolio of accelerated file transfer solutions will allow us to address yet another piece of the challenges our customers are facing in their production workflows”
Inala has partnered with FileCatalyst to provide the latest in broadcast technology to their clients looking to increase the speed of file transfers without compromising reliability or security. The FileCatalyst platform is immune to packet loss and latency while transferring large files over unreliable bandwidth connections or vast geographical distances, which will be a benefit to Inala’s customer base. While traditional file transfer methods like email and FTP are unable to keep up with increasingly larger file sizes, FileCatalyst ensures the transfer of any file, of any size, at speeds of up to 10 Gbps.
“Up until now, FileCatalyst had a minimal presence in Africa. This new partnership with Inala Broadcast will bridge this gap and greatly enhance our presence in the broadcasting industry in this region,” said Alan Atkinson, FileCatalyst’s VP of Business Development & Marketing. “Inala Broadcast and FileCatalyst are well matched because FileCatalyst’s suite of accelerated file transfer products is widely used by broadcast professionals who transfer massive media every day.”
FileCatalyst will attend IBC 2016 in Amsterdam from September 8-12 where FileCatalyst will showcase FileCatalyst Central v 3.7 – the technology used by NBC Olympics in their production of the Games in Rio.
