Signiant will demonstrate best practices for cloud ingest portals and introduce a new 'IMF Aware' interface at IBC2018.
Signiant’s Media Shuttle SaaS solution – which is now used by more than 400,000 professionals – naturally enables IMF workflows by providing seamless global access to a shared pool of content. The company’s new ‘IMF Aware’ functionality being introduced at IBC2018 streamlines IMF workflows by simplifying the process of accessing the assets required for the creation of a specific version.
With a simple user interface, built-in acceleration, and metadata capture capabilities, Media Shuttle provides customers with a customisable out-of-the-box cloud ingest portal. With Media Shuttle, there’s no need to deploy or manage software in the cloud, run web servers, or design and maintain bespoke software. Combined with unique patented features such as CloudSpex for pre-transfer delivery spec compliance, these factors have contributed to the widespread move away from custom-built, single-tenant cloud ingest portals.
“The media business continues to change at a rapid pace, and Signiant is uniquely positioned to respond rapidly," said Rick Clarkson, chief strategy officer of Signiant. "Our cloud-native SaaS architecture makes it possible for us to innovate continuously and quickly deliver new functionality to our customers.
“With this agile model and a very broadly deployed platform, Signiant plays a pivotal role in driving the adoption of new standards and practices across the entire global media supply chain. IMF and cloud ingest are natural use cases for our platform and great examples of its powerful impact on the media ecosystem.”
