Prime Focus Brings Aspera On Board To Speed Up File Transfers

A global visual entertainment services group, Prime Focus, has chosen Aspera's file transfer management and delivery technology to enable faster and more reliable digital file sharing.
Working in the film, broadcast and commercials industries, some of the credits Prime Focus has to its name include Quantum of Solace, GI Joe: The Rise of the Cobra and Ghajini.
With a 'Global Digital Pipeline' at its heart to enable collaboration on projects across three continents and five different time zones, Prime Focus needed a way of sharing files quickly, securely and reliably with other offices, partners and customers.
Prime Focus Technologies provides customers with CLEAR, a web-based media asset and workflow management platform, which offers the flexibility to share and manage content globally in a secure manner.
The Aspera solution will now be embedded within the CLEAR platform for high-speed files transfers and added security across Prime Focus' facilities in India, the UK and North America - in addition to key customer and partner sites.
Ramki Sankaranarayanan, President of Prime Focus Technologies, said: "Having looked around at competing file transfer technology providers we decided that Aspera was the best fit for our company. The technology and knowledge they demonstrated is second to none and they're willing to really get under the skin of our company."
Michelle Munson, President and Co-Founder of Aspera, said: "Working with Prime Focus in India and across the globe is a great opportunity for Aspera. Prime Focus is a leader in the visual entertainment industry and we look forward to working even more closely with them over time."
