BURLINGTON, Mass. & LAS VEGAS -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- SkyDrop, developed by Signiant, is the recipient of one of the industry’s most prestigious technology honors, NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award, presented at the 2014 NAB Show in Las Vegas by TV Technology magazine.
NewBay Media’s Best of Show Awards are evaluated by a panel of engineers and industry experts, and are selected based on innovation, feature set, cost efficiency and performance in serving the industry.
The winners will be featured in TV Technology, read by thousands of broadcast professionals in the United States, around the world and online. TV Technology is the industry's leading magazine for technology news and reviews.
Only a small number of products were chosen for NewBay Media’s Best of Show Award from among hundreds of new products in competition.
Signiant SkyDrop is the first and only commercially available hybrid SaaS solution that accelerates the movement of big data and professional media files into and out of Amazon S3 and Microsoft Azure cloud storage. Unlike other acceleration offerings, Signiant SkyDrop is a genuine cloud-formed solution that leverages managed cloud infrastructure, in contrast to software that customers must deploy and manage.
“We are enormously proud of our Best of Show recipients,” says NewBay Media Broadcast & Video Group Vice President & Group Publisher Eric Trabb. “Recognition with an award at the NAB Show from NewBay Media’s Broadcast & Video Group is a strong vote of confidence and admiration from our leading industry publications.”
Signiant’s intelligent file movement software helps the world’s top content creators and distributors ensure fast, secure delivery of large files over public and private networks. Built on Signiant’s patented technology, the company’s on-premises software and SaaS solutions move petabytes of high-value data every day between users, applications and systems with proven ease. www.signiant.com
