videoelec-filecatalyst-partner Ottawa, ON –  FileCatalyst, an Emmy® award-winning pioneer in managed file transfers and a world-leading accelerated file transfer solution, announced a new partnership with Videoelec, a  Colombian Value Added Reseller of high technology software and hardware.

Videoelec will now offer FileCatalyst’s accelerated file transfer solutions to their customers in the television production and post-production industry, which include production houses, private, local, national and regional television stations as well as customers in government and educational institutions across Colombia.

Many large files take hours to send using FTP – with FileCatalyst they can be sent in minutes .”
