Basque Media Group EiTB Selects RocketStream™ Data Transfer Acceleration Suite for its Video Transfer Workflow
BILBAO, Spain and MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – RocketStream, Inc., a subsidiary of Voyant International Corporation (OTC-BB: VOYT) and a developer of technologies and solutions to accelerate digital content delivery over IP networks, announced that Basque media group EiTB has selected the RocketStream™ data transfer acceleration suite to speed and streamline the aggregation of video content for Euskal Telebista. Based in Bilbao, Euskal Telebista is the leading television broadcast service in the Basque Country.
RocketStream is a software-based file transfer acceleration tool capable of transferring files over IP networks, including the Internet, at speeds up to 200 times faster than conventional file transfer protocol (FTP). RocketStream not only overcomes the detrimental effects of network latency on file transfers, but it also features on-the-fly compression and encryption, both of which are extremely important to the broadcast industry. When combined with RocketStream’s file transfer automation features, these attributes make RocketStream the ideal way to transfer large amounts of data over the Internet.
EiTB will use RocketStream to transfer video from journalists throughout the world to its headquarters, regardless of the journalists’ distance from Bilbao. Currently, these journalists transcode the video into a compressed format and then use FTP to slowly transfer this content to headquarters, where it is retranscoded back into the original format.
With RocketStream, journalists use a simple and intuitive RocketStream graphical user interface (GUI) to speed the video files in their native format to headquarters. RocketStream applies its acceleration and compression techniques without requiring any manual intervention and ensures that no data corruption occurs during transit.
“The speed and simplicity of RocketStream are fantastic,” enthused Iban Garcia Andreu, EiTB’s multiplatform media technical coordinator. “Rolling this platform out to our journalists is just the beginning. We see the potential for even more workflow improvements as our worldwide business partners adopt RocketStream to exchange production, promotional, and advertisement content with our headquarters.”
“We are pleased to do our part to assist Euskal Telebista, the leading Basque television company, in furthering its mission of bringing the best in news, sports, and entertainment to the Basque Country, America, and the rest of the world,” said William Chen, RocketStream’s vice president of enterprise sales. “With the global nature of today’s video content, RocketStream’s speed and ease of use make it a powerful tool for increasing the operational efficiency of broadcast companies worldwide.”
RocketStream develops and markets software-based data transfer acceleration solutions that make Internet data transfers fast, easy to use, secure, and reliable. RocketStream is the ideal way to transfer large data over long-distances, without requiring additional spending on new hardware. Available in client/server and point-to-point architectures, the RocketStream suite is capable of speeds up to 200 times faster than traditional methods. The powerful RocketStream Protocols overcome the detrimental effects of network latency on file transfers and operate over any IP network - private line, VPN, or Internet - regardless of whether the physical medium is electrical, fiber, satellite, or wireless. RocketStream is a subsidiary of Voyant International Corp. (OTC-BB: VOYT). More information can be found at http://www.voyant.net and http://www.rocketstream.com.
