DigiDelivery Adopted by Major Facilities Around the WorldDigiDelivery 2.0 enhances the file exchange process with Server-to-Server Relay and more (April 17, 2005)
Since launching the DigiDelivery file delivery system, Digidesign has seen major music, post production, broadcast, film, and video game developers around the world incorporate DigiDelivery for fast, secure exchange of digital files. Facilities that have adopted Digidesign DigiDelivery include Warner Brothers, Fox Film, Technicolor, Ascent Media, Universal Music, SDI Media, and Skywalker Sound.
“Harry Potter, Polar Express, and the Matrix series benefited greatly from the time we saved using DigiDelivery,” says foreign language dubbing supervisor Ray Gillon. “We’re all doing better work — and getting more sleep.”
DigiDelivery combines an ultra-simple software utility with an industrial-grade server, giving users the ability to exchange any kind of digital file of virtually any size with anyone in the world. DigiDelivery is faster, easier to use, and more secure than FTP, and it provides a more affordable alternative to overnight delivery services.
Digidesign recently released DigiDelivery 2.0, which includes Server-to-Server Relay: If both the sender and recipient have DigiDelivery servers, Server-to-Server Relay accelerates the delivery process by automatically transferring deliveries from the sender’s DigiDelivery server to the recipient’s. In practical terms, Server-to-Server Relay frees up workstations for more creative tasks and extends the sender’s deadlines. For example, a delivery sent late at night can still be ready and waiting on the recipient’s network when they arrive in the morning.
DigiDelivery 2.0 client software also enables users to create and manage multiple deliveries at once, add them to a queue, prioritize them, even quit and re-launch — DigiDelivery will pick up exactly where it left off. Users can name each delivery, add billing information, view a history of recent deliveries, and save login information for their frequently used accounts. DigiDelivery 2.0 supports Windows XP, Windows 2000, Mac OS X, and Mac OS 9.
“DigiDelivery addresses the growing need for a high performance delivery system that lets you easily exchange any kind of file with anyone in the world, but it is still secure enough for the major studios,” says Gordon Lyon, Product Manager for DigiDelivery. “By eliminating the need to ship disks and tapes, DigiDelivery removes the analog bottleneck from the digital workflow.”
Digidesign also welcomes Kal Dolgin as Worldwide Sales Manager for the DigiDelivery product line. Dolgin brings over 20 years of sales experience in the IT/media services business as well as the pro audio and music products industries. Most recently, Kal was with the media services division at Globix Corp and was a founder of Velocity Group, which specializes in media management solutions and entertainment technologies. Kal will be responsible for managing sales of DigiDelivery through Digidesign’s worldwide network of dealers, as well as developing new DigiDelivery sales channels.
