Ottawa, ON, March 07, 2013

Unlimi-Tech Software, Inc., a pioneer in managed file transfers and the creator of FileCatalyst, the world’s leading accelerated file transfer solution, is pleased to announce a collaborative partnership with innovative video solutions provider, Venera Technologies, and an integration with their QC Solution, Pulsar Automated Content Verifier.

The Pulsar solution is a comprehensive and versatile automated QC software tool for file based content, enabling today’s content providers to ensure an optimum and uninterrupted viewer experience on multiple platforms. Pulsar allows for content creators to ensure quality in traditional file based media content as well as adaptive bit-rate content in a fast, simple, flexible and integrated manner by automating quality check and control at every stage of the content lifecycle.

Each Pulsar Professional unit can verify up to four simultaneous files and one HD file can be analyzed at an unmatched speed of 4x real-time. This rapid advantage of Pulsar is coupled with FileCatalyst’s UDP-based accelerated file transfer technology. The FileCatalyst integration enables the fast and secure movement of media files, which are typically very large and slow to transfer. Along with being the fastest quality control tool in the market, Pulsar can automatically detect the arrival of new files on the FileCatalyst Server and quickly analyze them based on pre-established user-defined parameters.

“The integration of FileCatalyst technology into Pulsar is a natural fit and perfect collaboration of two systems well suited for any company dealing with media and file-based workflows,” says Fereidoon Khosravi, Senior Vice President, Americas Business Development at Venera Technologies. “Our users can take comfort knowing that Pulsar’s integration with FileCatalyst ensures that delivered files have already been analyzed before the intended person or group even sees the files.”

“We’re excited to be partnering with Venera and be part of the Pulsar solution,” says Alan Atkinson, Vice President of Business Development for Unlimi-Tech. “Their solution is invaluable to content providers, providing a fast, simple and integrated way to quality check and control their important content”
