NAB Show 2013 Wrap Up: Exciting Announcements and New Releases for the Digital Media Industry!

Last week, the FileCatalyst Team attended NAB Show in Las Vegas. This was a great show with many new, exciting technologies announced (including our own new FileCatalyst Central and FileCatalyst Direct releases) breathing new life into the constantly evolving digital media industry.

Along with showcasing our latest FileCatalyst Central and FileCatalyst Direct releases offering extended integration features and enhanced mobile capabilities, the FileCatalyst Team also demonstrated our 10 Gbps transfers of media files. As discussed by CEO and Co-Founder Chris Bailey while being interviewed at NAB Show, FileCatalyst’s 10 Gbps file transfers address the recent shifts to HD and 4K (and even 8K) video formats, leading to larger file sizes requiring acceleration to be delivered quickly and optimize digital workflows.

During NAB Show, some competitor announcements mentioned they are now sending data at 10 Gbps on brand new chips. We’re happy to say that we’ve have been offering 10 Gbps file transfer speeds to our customers for over 1 1/2 years. Furthermore, we’ve done so using 3 year old chips (Intel or AMD) meaning we can offer our customers the same speeds with half the hardware. Providing a more in-depth look at our file transfer speeds is an independent scientific publication of our protocols by the ex-CEO of one of our competitors.

All in all, NAB Show this year was a great gathering of technology and broadcasting professionals, reflecting recent industry shifts in speaking sessions and exhibitor stands as well. Thanks to all those who stopped by the FileCatalyst booth!
