Signiant Software Inspires Arqiva System

Signiant, provider of intelligent file movement software for media and entertainment, has announced that leading broadcast media services company Arqiva established a new content ingest and delivery system based on Signiant's software.
Already in use by BlackBelt TV in the U.S., among other, the new automated playout system gives Arqiva a competitive edge in serving its customers - providing remote content ingest, automated workflows and complete visibility into content delivery.
Signiant's accelerated file movement solutions automate and manage the file-based delivery process enabling Arqiva to streamline its operations, moving content quickly 24/7 from anywhere in the world over existing networks, and reducing the steps needed to send or obtain content for greater efficiency and scale.
"With Signiant, we're enhancing delivery-to-air with exceptional time-savings and control," said Gregory Burns, Workflow Specialist at Arqiva.
"The software, not our operators, now moves content to and between the customer's location and our Media Centre. As we develop new services the platform will also be used to automate the movement of content and metadata between our Media Centre and other platforms such as VOD or IPTV. We are saving time that we can now be applied toward other, more important business-enhancing activities."
"We relied on Signiant software and Arqiva to meet tight deadlines for Blackbelt TV's Africa launch by accelerating the movement hundreds of hours of programming from LA to London," said Adrian Schmotolocha, COO at Blackbelt TV.
"Using Arqiva's intelligent hub as a single playout source lets us reach a range of different markets fast. Signiant's software helped average out our throughput rates to get much faster transmission speeds - and reduce errors, enabling us to confidently meet our compressed operational timeframes.
"For broadcasters, Signiant clears a wide-open traffic lane on a crowded freeway. You look out on the traffic jam and think you could never get to where you need to go on time, and then, with Signiant, suddenly you can."
"Broadcast service providers don't have time, staffing level or budget to keep working in the same old way," said David Nortier, General Manager, Signiant EMEA.
"To stay competitive, they must find new ways to automate traditionally manual processes while ensuring the highest quality. Signiant is delighted to help organisations such as Arqiva and others to enhance efficiency to their operations and to that of their customers."
