Evolphin and FileCatalyst announce partnership

Evolphin Forms Partnership with FileCatalyst to Integrate Fast File Transfer Capabilities into their Media Asset Management (MAM) Platform Zoom

Ottawa, ON – FileCatalyst, an Emmy® award-winning pioneer in managed file transfers and a world-leading fast file transfer solution, has formed a new integration partnership with Evolphin Software to provide fast file transfer capabilities within their Media Asset Management (MAM) platform, Zoom.

Evolphin Software was founded in 2007 with its flagship Zoom platform, which combines a Digital Asset Management (DAM) system and Media Asset Management (MAM) system to streamline the creative workflows of companies working in broadcast video, print, graphic design, manufacturing, and more. Zoom leverages high-performance in-memory content deduplication, allowing users to create, share, collect insights, and publish rich media in the fastest way possible.

Through this new integration partnership, FileCatalyst Direct, a suite of server and client applications that accelerate point-to-point file transfers at speeds of up to 10 Gbps, has been integrated directly into the Zoom platform. This integration allows users to trigger FileCatalyst-powered transfers within Zoom to move high-res media either on demand or on ingest, keeping content across multiple locations in sync.

This functionality complements Evolphin’s powerful video proxy workflow, which allows video editors to work remotely with media and to access the full resolution versions. With FileCatalyst, this process is massively scalable because FileCatalyst’s protocol is immune to speed degradation caused by packet loss and latency.

“Content delivery has traditionally been a friction point in the media and broadcast space. Even with the wide variety of options available, it’s not always an easy problem to solve,” said FileCatalyst’s Director of Strategic Partnerships & Cloud Services, Elton Carneiro. “FileCatalyst is happy to provide our fast file transfer technology to Zoom users and help them overcome this long standing industry challenge of efficient content delivery.”

“When our customers expressed a need for faster and more reliable file transfer capabilities, we knew FileCatalyst would exceed customer requirements,” said Evan Michals, VP Video Product Management at Evolphin. “With their flexible integration options and a decade of experience in fast file transfers, we knew that FileCatalyst would be perfect for organizations looking to keep multiple video production locations in sync. We are thrilled to announce this partnership.”
