Tokyo, Japan (PRWEB) March 28, 2013

STORM, the Managed File Transfer protocol developed for use at the Vancouver and London Olympics for Japan’s largest broadcasting networks will debut in the US market at the National Association of Broadcasters(NAB) show in Las Vegas April 8-11, 2013.

STORM is a proven UDP protocol for the two-way transfer of large data files and will initially be available both as a standalone product and as an app for users of Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Azure cloud platform. For broadcasters, UDP provides a number of advantages and benefits, including:

  •     Demonstrated transfer rates between 60-90 Mbps in coverage of major events globally
  •     Reduced vulnerability to packet loss, delays and jitters
  •     Simultaneous packet transfers to multiple locations
  •     Configurable encryption and security protocols to optimize bandwidth use
  •     Operates independently from your network environment
  •     SIMPLE drag and drop operation

The precision of STORM’s packet management protocol means broadcasters can ensure accuracy in having broadcast content delivered across a network of local TV stations simultaneously.

While developed for Broadcasting, STORM is now available for other industries where large data file transfers are required quickly and frequently:

  •     Global Financial Services Businesses
  •     Medical Imaging and other Healthcare applications
  •     Media companies including creative and digital agencies
  •     Data management, analytics and “Big Data” applications
  •     Game Software Development
  •     Film & Cinema Distribution

STORM will be available in the US, both as a standalone product and as an app for users of Microsoft’s Windows Azure platform. Unixon staff are available to meet at the NABShow April 8-11 in Las Vegas. Stop by the booth or reserve a meeting time at http://www.FastStorm.com.
