Signiant Media Shuttle

One of my clients recently announced at the NAB show,  a new product I had a hand in designing.

Signiant delivers intelligent software solutions that facilitate the movement of file-based media between systems, applications and users  – from pre-production content and mobile news to finished-format movies, trailers and TV episodics.

Unlike fragmented, first-generation file transport solutions that have proliferated ad hoc networks and disparate, unmanaged transport mechanisms, Signiant’s software and services are uniquely tuned for the media enterprise.

Their new product is in their words: “The industry’s only subscription-based software for secure, accelerated file movement, Media Shuttle delivers powerfully simple user interfaces in the cloud, while maintaining content within the secure control of your internal network.”

The UX challenge was to provide a simple upload experience for media professionals on par with any of the currently available file transfer solutions. The solution provides a middle layer of “operations administration”, allowing non-IT staff to act as traffic cop. In their words: “By delegating user administration, Media Shuttle dramatically reduces the level of IT support required for managing users, servers and desktop software.  Yet, unlike many consumer cloud-based services, Media Shuttle provides centralized visibility of transfers, including job status, bandwidth usage and user activity to monitor workgroup content flows.”
