Unlimi-Tech Software has launched FileCatalyst Direct 3.5 and is demonstrating the latest updates to its FileCatalyst tools.
The company’s flagship product, FileCatalyst Direct, is a suite of client and server applications that perform point-to-point accelerated file transfers at speeds of up to 10 Gbps. The latest version, FileCatalyst Direct 3.5, offers users new options to transfer files of any size and format, to anywhere around the world.
And, it’s now integrated with — and can save data directly to — Amazon S3 online file storage offered by Amazon Web Services, making it easier for users to share large media files in the cloud.
According to the company FileCatalyst Direct 3.5 also offers extended support for dynamic files. The software compensates for potential file transfer errors, such as those that don’t grow sequentially or are inappropriately modified by certain file formats.
It also claimed that FileCatalyst Direct 3.5 can substantially reduce the wait for file transfer corrections, and can also retransfer portions of a file that have been modified once the primary transfer is complete.
FileCatalyst co-founder and CEO, Chris Bailey, said, “The driving force behind FileCatalyst Direct 3.5 is that media companies of every kind are sharing content globally, and are increasingly using the cloud to do so, but with varying degrees of frustration due to slow, or incomplete, transfers.”
At IBC, FileCatalyst has also been showing updates for TransferAgent, a web browser application for accelerated file transfer with no reliance on a Java plug-in.
