Broadcast Products and FileCatalyst partnership
May 25, 2017
Broadcast Products, a division of Broadcast Solutions, has recently added FileCatalyst, an Emmy award-winning expert in managed file transfers and a leading accelerated file transfer solution, to its products portfolio. Both companies have announced today that they have developed a new channel distribution partnership with Broadcast Products to distribute FileCatalyst products in the DACH, CIS, Russian, South East Asian and Middle East markets. Broadcast Products will take care of FileCatalyst’s flagship products with sales and support.
“We are excited to add FileCatalyst to our portfolio, as they are a true leader in the accelerated file transfer space,” says Antti Laurila, Product Sales Director for Broadcast Products. “With media assets growing in size, remote production becoming more and more common, and the ever increasing requirement for worldwide collaboration, more and more of our customers see FileCatalyst as a need.”
“We are very excited about this new partnership and we look forward to working with Broadcast Products. They are one of Europe’s biggest system integrators, and we are excited to have them actively promote, sell and support FileCatalyst as a partner,” said Alan Atkinson, Vice President of Business Development & Marketing for FileCatalyst. “We are also looking forward to working closely with their subsidiaries in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East.”
Broadcast Products will sell and support FileCatalyst’s flagship products Direct, Workflow and Central.
FileCatalyst Direct is a suite of server and client applications that accelerates point-to-point file transfers at speeds of up to 10Gbps. FileCatalyst utilises a patented UDP-based file transfer technology that overcomes the issues of slow file transfers caused by network impairments such as latency and packet loss.
FileCatalyst Workflow is a web portal for all your file transfer needs. It simplifies file exchange and boosts productivity by streamlining submission, distribution, and file sharing workflows on the web. By integrating directly into your corporate infrastructure, FileCatalyst Workflow makes receiving files easy by acting as an online file submission inbox for anyone outside of your network submitting files into your organisational workflows. FileCatalyst Workflow also turns file distribution via email into a simple task by enabling users to securely send files to any email address. FileCatalyst Workflow combines three powerful web-based managed file transfer workflows: submission, distribution, and online folders.
FileCatalyst Central is a web application used to monitor and manage an organization’s entire FileCatalyst deployment. Central allows administrators to view ongoing transfers in real time, dig into transaction histories, manage or monitor alarms, manage nodes and initiate node-to-server transfers. Administrators may also edit the configuration of all the connected nodes, including FileCatalyst HotFolder (HF) and TransferAgent (TA). Written in HTML5, Central is firewall friendly and integrates seamlessly with all products in the FileCatalyst suite.
