Signiant is launching Media Engine, a media management service built into The Signiant Platform.
The platform enables Signiant’s SaaS customers to easily search, preview and take action on media assets across all their Signiant-connected storage, from anywhere in the world, said the company.
Users can search by keyword and phrase, file type and more to easily find assets across distributed storage. They can also preview any media format and immediately download or send it using Media Shuttle.
According to Signiant, users can perform federated searches across multiple content repositories, both on-premises and in the cloud. Results are immediately actionable via the powerful services available on the platform anchored by the company’s fast file transfer.
The company is making Media Engine available with every Signiant SaaS subscription as a way of extending the value of its products Media Shuttle, Jet, and Flight Deck.
“Our customers need to easily access their widely distributed content and Media Engine makes that functionality available to any-size business,” commented Rick Clarkson, Signiant’s chief product officer.
“Media Engine is a nimble, lightweight service built on the Signiant Platform, which is already widely deployed across the media supply chain thanks to its foundation of fast file transfer. The platform’s unique architecture enables us to bring a variety of powerful new services to market for our SaaS customers with a very disruptive approach — Media Engine is the first of those services.”
