GENERAL: FileCatalyst, a world leading accelerated file transfer solution represented in Asia Pac by Magna Systems and Engineering, has been selected as a recipient of the 66th Annual Technology and Engineering Emmy® Award for Secure Accelerated File Movement over IP including the Internet.
Technology and Engineering Emmy Awards are presented to a select few organisations that demonstrate extensive improvement on existing methods or are so innovative in nature that they materially have affected the transmission, recording, or reception of television. FileCatalyst was selected by a committee of industry experts and peers as meeting this criteria, and was one of the select few organisations chosen to be honoured with this award.
Secure, accelerated file movement has revolutionised the way media content is shared and collaborated upon. With the transition to digital content several years ago, movement of large files became a major issue for broadcasters and studios. The subsequent evolutionary shift to HD, and now to 4K/UHD, has caused file sizes to explode. High speed networks are commonplace and it is literally impossible to move today’s content at a reasonable speed using dated technologies like FTP. By introducing FileCatalyst in 2005, its creator Unlimi-Tech helped pioneer the secure and accelerated file transfer technology now relied upon by those in the media and broadcast industry.
“We are honoured to have been selected for the Technology and Engineering Emmy® Award and be categorised with such elite company,” said Chris Bailey, CEO of Unlimi-Tech, “It recognises FileCatalyst as a leading acceleration technology for media and broadcast, and is a reflection of the tireless efforts put in by our team over the last several years.”
The 66th annual Technology and Engineering Emmy presentations will be held in Las Vegas at the Bellagio Hotel during the 2015 Consumer Electronic Show.
