IBC 2007 - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS and OTTAWA, CANADA – September 6th, 2007 - Unlimi-Tech Software today announced that FileCatalyst product is fully integrated with the Omneon MediaGrid active storage system. The Omneon MediaGrid is a highly scalable active storage platform for broadcast and production facilities that simplifies operations by enabling simultaneous access to centrally stored content. The integration of FileCatalyst technology allows the fastest possible transfer of video assets to and from a MediaGrid system over a wide area network.

“It is very exciting for us to have integrated with Omneon’s award winning MediaGrid.” explains Chris Bailey, Unlimi-Tech’s CEO. “Any third party application or workflow that is based on MediaGrid can now plug-in our FileCatalyst technology and immediately see speed gains when transferring files over a WAN.”

"Several of our development partners have built workflow applications based on our MediaGrid and Spectrum servers," said Jason Danielson, senior director of solution marketing for Omneon. "Since many of these workflows span multiple continents, FileCatalyst will help ensure more efficient file transfers and eliminate current bottlenecks."
