Signiant launches Media Engine
April 6, 2022
Signiant, a specialist in intelligent file transfer software, has announced Media Engine, a modern media management service built into The Signiant Platform.
Media Engine allows Signiant’s SaaS customers to search, preview and take action on media assets across all their Signiant-connected storage, from anywhere in the world. Customers can perform federated searches across multiple content repositories, both on-premises and in the cloud. Results are immediately actionable via the services available on the platform anchored by Signiant’s fast file transfer.
“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.”
“It was just over a year ago that Signiant acquired Lesspain to help enhance the capabilities of the Signiant Platform,” added Margaret Craig, Chief Executive Officer of Signiant. “Media Engine is the result of many months of hard work by our internal development team and our new Lesspain colleagues. We think the results will delight the millions of media professionals who use our software in their everyday work, and our plan is to continue to release other platform services in the future that further address our customers’ pain points.”
