Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) April 8, 2008

Unlimi-Tech Software, the leader in accelerated file transfer software, announced today that it will be demonstrating its industry-leading FileCatalyst technology at the upcoming NAB 2008 trade show in Las Vegas. The FileCatalyst family of products offers broadcasters, carriers, telecoms, post production houses, and digital delivery and system integration companies a software solution that is able to maximize transfer speeds as well as offer a complete web-based workflow solution for submission, tracking and distribution of digital content.

"The media and entertainment industry is in dire need of an accelerated file transfer solution that is not only fast but also easy to install and use," says Chris Bailey, CEO of Unlimi-Tech. "We are often contacted by M&E companies that are not satisfied with other file transfer solutions because of configuration difficulties, inflexible licensing and poor performance."

FileCatalyst Direct can be deployed in under 20 minutes to offer line speed transfers with no extensive configuration. It can also be deployed as part of a web portal, meaning no end user installation or configuration is required. The central licensing model allows one license to serve an entire enterprise. There is no need to constantly procure new licenses to accommodate the ever-changing landscape of your business.

FileCatalyst technology is easily integrated into existing workflow and media asset management solutions. It is one of the leading data movers to integrate with the IBM Media Hub Solution Framework, IBM's services oriented architecture (SOA)-based solution for the media and entertainment industry. The solution is designed to manage the increasing complexity of running a content-focused business from the point of creation to the distribution of digital content. Media Hub enables media and entertainment companies to streamline file-based workflows, allowing them to reduce costs and distribute new products and services to consumers more rapidly. IBM will be demonstrating the solution at NAB 2008 in Las Vegas.

"The IBM Media Hub Solution Framework enables media companies to fully automate and streamline the flow of digital content," said Steve Canepa, vice president of Media and Entertainment at IBM. "FileCatalyst provides a key component to accelerate the digital workflow further by removing file transfer bottlenecks."
