Signiant Wins Emmy Award for Technology and Engineering
National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences honors Signiant for secure accelerated file movement technology
Signiant has won a 2014 Emmy® Award for Technology and Engineering. The company’s innovations in secure accelerated file movements over IP (including the internet) earned it this prestigious award, which honors excellence in engineering creativity.
Signiant is one of a select few companies to be honored with an Emmy Award for Technology and Engineering, and was chosen by dozens of industry experts and peers. The awards are presented to companies for engineering developments so significant or innovative in nature that they materially affect the transmission, recording or reception of television.
“An Emmy Award is the ultimate recognition of technical leadership in the media and entertainment industry,” said Ian Hamilton, CTO, Signiant. “We are thrilled to be honored with this award for our technology innovations. This recognition further validates our pioneering work in developing solutions for the fast, secure movement of large files.”
Signiant’s proven technology is deployed on a truly global scale moving petabytes of content daily. The world’s top networks, broadcasters, and local stations leverage Signiant’s technology to reliably move high-value digital assets. Signiant was the first file transfer technology company to include central management and workflow orchestration, allowing large numbers of distributed endpoints to be efficiently managed and elegantly linked to broadcast workflows. Most recently, Signiant expanded their portfolio to include the industry’s first SaaS offerings for accelerated file transfer that now enable their customers to leverage the benefits of the cloud for their production and distribution workflows.
Emmy Award winners in Technology & Engineering will be honored during the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
