A Game Changer

If history and the evolution of technology in media and broadcast have taught us anything, it's that the present times are short-lived and advancements in technology are constantly evolving.  It started with standard broadcasting that then moved to HD to 1080P and now 4K and soon to be 8K and beyond.  What do they all have in common?  The exceedingly large file sizes that accompany such an ever-evolving technology that shows no signs of slowing down.  Live event production, especially in the sports broadcasting industry has gone beyond mainstream as the desire for exceptionally clear images and the “feel like you are there” goal continues to grow just like the associated file sizes.

FileCatalyst at its core makes the movement and management of these large files easily with our Emmy® award-winning accelerated file transfer solutions that are 100X faster than FTP and which are immune to latency and packet loss.  Based on UDP protocol, our solutions are designed to accelerate and optimize file transfers across global networks at speeds of up to 10Gbps by breaking down large data into manageable chunks that can be sent at full line speeds.

Feel confident with a solution that is fast, reliable, and secure.  Every time!

Remote Editing

Live events require a lot of manpower; from capturing, editing, tagging and so on. Sending all of these people to the event can really drive up costs. With FileCatalyst, you can keep the editing crew at home and enable a remote editing workflow. People capturing the content can send proxy files to the editing crew at home at multi-gigabit speeds, enabling editors to work from HQ and send finished content back for playout at unprecedented speeds.

Track & Monitor

There are a lot of moving parts to consider and be aware of when delivering a live event to the masses, and priorities can change in a flash. FileCatalyst Central allows admins to view every active transfer, adjust their priority on the fly, initiate node-to-node transfers and view alarms all in one centralized, browser-based location.

Automated Workflows

Timing is crucial with live events, the moment a piece of content is captured, it needs to begin moving through the workflow and sent out to audiences. With FileCatalyst Direct, our flagship solution, you can create automated transfer tasks with the client application FileCatalyst HotFolder. Sync schedules can be set up to custom intervals as low as 30 seconds, and after every interval, all content is uploaded and downloaded across every endpoint with a HotFolder.

Transfer Dynamic Media

When capturing content, there are many different files, formats and resolutions, all of which need to be transcoded and rendered before transferring it to its next destination. With FileCatalyst’s fast file transfer solutions, you can send dynamic MXF video files, and any other format, as it is being recorded or changing, removing significant amounts of downtime from your workflow.
