Signiant Software Enables Leagues To Transfer Valuable Game Content

The Sports Video Group is pleased to welcome Signiant as a corporate sponsor. The Burlington, MA-based company’s software enables high-speed movement of large, valuable files in their entirety over public and private networks.

With acceleration technology to minimize the impact of latency, enterprise-class security, and central control, Signiant software powers most of the world’s media and entertainment companies — from small postproduction houses to Hollywood studios — and is increasingly being adopted for use with satellite imagery, big-data analytics, and genome sequencing.

“Sports production and distribution have undergone an amazing transformation with the advent of mobile devices and Web outlets, and the industry continues to innovate at a rapid pace,” says VP of Marketing Katie Staveley. “As a software supplier to many of the world’s top sports organizations, it is important for us to participate in the dialogue about new technical and operational trends. We’re delighted to sponsor the Sports Video Group and look forward to joining many of our customers and industry colleagues as active contributors.”

Signiant is rooted in on-premises enterprise-software development and has embraced cloud-formed software development with its SaaS file-transfer and cloud storage upload solutions. According to the company, its hybrid SaaS solution, Media Shuttle, is the easiest and most reliable way to send any-size file anywhere fast. Used by the world’s top content creators and distributors as well as by smaller production and postproduction studios, Media Shuttle adjusts to fit the workflow of any-size business.

Over the past year, an increasing number of sports teams — including members of the NFL, NBA, NHL, and the IRB (International Rugby Board) — have adopted Media Shuttle, mainly to transfer game footage to news outlets. Recently, CIO magazine featured an article headlined “NFL Lions Tackle Giant Video Uploads” on the Detroit Lions’ use of Media Shuttle in their print and online publications.
