NEP Group is adding Signiant’s Media Shuttle to its global fleet of OB trucks, studios and flypacks to enable accelerated file-based operations.
The addition will enable NEP’s clients to move media assets and associated metadata from sports venues back to the broadcast facility.
According to the two companies, the addition of Media Shuttle will make it easier for broadcasters to quickly move their content during an event in order to get it ingested into the desired storage or cloud-based platform.
Once there, the content can be distributed to global partners quickly, made available to remote editors and moved to the customer’s own archive systems for future use.
“We’re always looking for smart ways to help our clients and production partners produce and deliver better content. Productions require a more simplified file delivery workflow to make more content available to production stakeholders, who are not necessarily on-site anymore,” said NEP Group’s Jay Deutsch, director of media solutions in the United States.
“Media Shuttle provides the flexibility to work with our newer IP and UHD trucks, plus our compact flypack and studio solutions, all of which can now easily leverage delivery of media to those not on-site at the production. This is a real game changer for our clients looking for more efficient means of content archive than removable hard drives.”
