Signiant was named a winner of the 2014 Emmy Award for Technology and Engineering. Signiant’s work in secure accelerated file movements over IP (including the internet) earned the company the award, which honours excellence in engineering creativity.
Emmy Awards for Technology and Engineering are presented to companies for engineering developments that materially affect the transmission, recording or reception of television.
“An Emmy Award is the ultimate recognition of technical leadership in the media and entertainment industry,” said Ian Hamilton, CTO, Signiant. “We are thrilled to be honoured with this award for our technology innovations. This recognition further validates our pioneering work in developing solutions for the fast, secure movement of large files.”
Signiant’s technology is deployed on a global scale moving petabytes of content daily, and networks, broadcasters, and local stations use the company’s technology to move high-value digital assets. Signiant was the first file transfer technology company, its claims, to include central management and workflow orchestration, allowing large numbers of distributed endpoints to be managed and linked to broadcast workflows.
Most recently Signiant expanded its portfolio to include the SaaS offerings for accelerated file transfer, designed to enable its customers to leverage the cloud for production and distribution workflows.
The upcoming TVBAwards honour excellence in Capture, Workflow, and Delivery of live or recorded broadcast TV content. Four special awards will also be given: Lifetime Achievement, Sustainability, Marketing Campaign and Outstanding Broadcast.
Nominations close at midnight Friday 8 August and can be made via the TVBAwards website.
