To overcome their challenges surrounding content delivery, Evolphin has integrated FileCatalyst Direct into its flagship Digital Asset Management (DAM) Platform, Zoom. FileCatalyst Direct is a suite of server and client applications that accelerate point-to-point file transfers at speeds of up to 10 Gbps. These speeds are achieved via their patented UDP-based fast file transfer protocol, which overcomes the speed degradation that packet loss, RTT, and latency have on FTP-based file transfers.
This integration allows Zoom users to trigger FileCatalyst-powered transfers within the Zoom platform itself. Users can leverage FileCatalyst’s Emmy award-winning technology to send high-res media either on demand or on ingest, keeping content across multiple locations in sync.
This functionality acts as an addition to Evolphin’s powerful video proxy workflow, which allows remote video editors to access and work with full resolution content. FileCatalyst enhances this process and allows the workflow to perform on a global scale since FileCatalyst’s UDP-based protocol is immune to speed degradation caused by packet loss and latency across long-haul transfers.
