Soho's Pepper has become the first European facility to integrate Signiant's Digital Media Distribution Management Suite into its workflow. The aim is to help manage, secure, automate and accelerate the movement of Pepper's media files with its client base, including the BBC and HBO.
Shane Warden, joint MD of Pepper commented: "We believe that secure encrypted and receipted delivery of digital assets will become the norm for the broadcast industry in the future. Also our DI projects will benefit from secure, synchronised pipelines that will allow flexibility and guarantees for our clients in a world where protection of intellectual property is king. For this we will partner with Signiant whose knowledge of the media and entertainment market is second to none."
David Nortier, Managing Director of Signiant Europe added: "When you think forward-thinking post production, you think Pepper. Its adoption of Signiant's technology as a means to further improve service to its client base is in itself proof that forward thinking post houses can truly benefit from implementing an integrated media distribution strategy. We are delighted that Pepper will be implementing the Signiant technology and we look forward to working with them and the post production community in the future."
