posted in: Press Release

Ottawa, ON – FileCatalyst, an Emmy® award-winning pioneer in managed file transfers and a world leading accelerated file transfer solution, has announced that Malayala Manorama Television (MM TV) has chosen to use FileCatalyst to boost productivity and streamline their workflows.

Malayala Manorama has been a successful news publication across India spanning across India for over over a century. They are a multi-magazine publishing house with 25 publications, with many of them as leaders in their categories. In recent years, they have moved into the cyber and television spaces with success.

Belonging to the broadcasting and news industries, reporters, film crews and photographers from various locations frequently feed content to the printing and/or broadcasting centres from remote locations. Prior to choosing FileCatalyst, MM TV reporters transferred and shared content via USB, physical storage, email and FTP. MM TV was challenged when trying to send assets reliably – and on schedule – for every transfer.

To overcome this, MM TV has deployed FileCatalyst Direct, which is a suite of client and server applications that enables point to point accelerated file transfers at speeds of up to 10 Gbps. By installing the client FileCatalyst HotFolder on the journalists’ machines, they now have access to full line speeds from any location. Additionally, the HotFolder provided automation capabilities, so sync tasks can be scheduled for both uploads and downloads.

With FileCatalyst Direct, MM TV reporters can push raw footage from their mobile devices to their chosen destination within minutes, greatly boosting productivity.“Being a news agency, speed of delivery is one of our most crucial requirements for our success. After deploying File Catalyst, we have seen our productivity increase dramatically” says Mr. V. V. Jacob, General Manager Systems of MM TV & Malayala Manorama.

“We strive to empower a number of industries, including broadcasting, with the ability to utilize their line speeds currently in place. We we able to to provide MM TV with maximum efficiency across all of their locations, and we were happy to do so,” says Alan Atkinson, Vice President of Business Development & Marketing for FileCatalyst.
