Signiant and Sohonet Win Best of IBC 2012 Award
The Sohonet FileRunner Service, which is based on Signiant Media Shuttle file transfer software, has been named as one of this year’s Best of IBC award winners.
TVB Europe magazine has selected FileRunner in the Production and Infrastructure category for its easy to use tools, which enable users to move high-value media assets between the organisations that use the high-performance Sohonet Media Network.
The world’s largest private media and entertainment network, Sohonet’s members include some of the biggest names in film, TV and advertising. FileRunner is an embedded feature of the new Sohonet Hub, which enables global members to find, communicate and share information and digital content with each other quickly and securely.
Signiant’s Media Shuttle featured a patent-pending cloud connector technology which enables a convenient subscription-based file transfer service without any file size limits or security risks, so providing an effective alternative to FTP or other file transfer products for moving large media files across the globe.
“Each year we ask our editorial teams to pick out the most innovative new product introductions at the IBC show,” said Fergal Ringrose, editorial director, TVB Europe. “We look for new products that clearly show the potential to help end users make money or save money. From the wealth of nominations collated by our editors, we narrow the list down to the very best to name our annual winners, which this year includes Sohonet’s integration of Signiant Media Shuttle.”
