Vancouver, BC / TheNewswire / February 6, 2019 - Eight Solutions Inc. (TSXV:ES) ("Eight Solutions" or the "Company"), a technology company focused on making data easy, today announced that a major league sports franchise in North America has purchased the Cumul8:Jetstream high speed file transfer platform to move its broadcast media content between multiple locations.
The team selected Jetstream after a brief trial period that confirmed the platform would meet its file transfer requirements, namely high speed, security, and ease of use. Another important consideration was the ability to seamlessly integrate other technology solutions with Jetstream to improve workflow efficiencies.
A Media Asset Management (MAM) application is used to organize and track the game and editorial content that the team produces. By integrating a secure high speed file transfer solution with this tool, the team can ensure safe and timely sharing of files between various collaborators. Open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) included with Jetstream simplify the integration process. Moreover, unlike other vendors that can make integration cost prohibitive by charging for API access, Jetstream APIs are freely available.
This sale coincides with the release of Jetstream version 1.7, which introduces new server application functionality with improved security as well as better transfer and bandwidth management. The client software features a revamped workflow design to enhance the user experience.
"We're pleased about the progress Jetstream has made on both the sales and product fronts," said Michael Devine, Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Eight Solutions. "As a major sports franchise, our latest client represents an entry point into another segment of the Media & Entertainment industry and an opportunity to grow sales within their league as well as others. The validation by such a renowned organization bodes well for the continued success of Jetstream in the coming months. We are proud to provide a technology platform that this and any team can trust to move their content securely, reliably, and quickly."
