Latest FileCatalyst® version to accelerate file transfers for digital media.

Unlimi-Tech Software has announced the release of FileCatalyst® Direct version 2.4.2 at The Cable Show 2008, which is held in New Orleans, Louisiana from May 18th-20th. At the booth, the company will showcase the latest FileCatalyst® acceleration technology, which allows cable operators, broadcasters, carriers, post production houses, and digital delivery companies to move multimedia files over the internet at the fastest possible rate.

"We are very pleased to see how the media and entertainment industry is using our solution to move digital content," said John Tkaczewski, President and co-founder of Unlimi-Tech Software. "The latest media client to join our family has been TVN Entertainment. TVN uses our acceleration technology to move 8,000 hours of VOD programming from over 150 different vendors. Our success internationally has also been astounding. Since 2006, Brazil's Rain Networks has been using FileCatalyst® technology to move feature films across the globe to hundreds of digital cinemas."

The FileCatalyst® technology is completely software-based, and is designed to overcome network performance bottlenecks to maximize use of available bandwidth. Improved file transfer speeds combined with incremental transfers and on-the-fly compression provide real-world increases 100 fold over traditional file transfer methods. This acceleration technology is packaged into three distinct products: FileCatalyst® Direct, FileCatalyst® Webmail and FileCatalyst® Web Workflow.

FileCatalyst® Direct is a point-to-point transfer system that offers advanced scheduling and administration features. FileCatalyst® Direct 2.4.2 adds several improvements, including improved data transfer performance, smaller memory footprint, and higher scalability. FileCatalyst® Webmail allows end users to send files of any size to anywhere in the world, using only the recipient's email address. FileCatalyst® Web Workflow combines the patent pending FileCatalyst® acceleration technology with a web interface, offering upload and tracking of digital content as it moves from source to sink.
