Intelligent file transfer software specialist Signiant unveiled Media Engine, which it described as a modern media management service built into the Signiant platform.
Media Engine is designed to allow Signiant’s software-as-a-service 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.
Media Engine will be included with every Signiant SaaS subscription to extend the value of its products — Media Shuttle, Jet, and Flight Deck —beyond file transfer. Signiant noted that the expansion of its core platform provides additional tools to help media companies create workflow efficiencies and streamline operations.
Rick Clarkson, chief product officer, Signiant, said: “Our customers need to easily access their widely distributed content and Media Engine makes that functionality available to any-size business. 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 disruptive new services to market for our SaaS customers — Media Engine is the first of those.”
Media Engine is immediately available to select Signiant customers. General availability is currently scheduled for July 2022.
