FileCatalyst Announces a Partnership to Provide Multi-Gigabit Transfer Speeds to Clippn Users


OTTAWA, ON – FileCatalyst, an Emmy® award-winning pioneer in managed file transfers and a world-leading accelerated file transfer solution, has announced a new partnership with Clippn, a global leader in video curation and stock footage monetization.

Clippn is a solution for videographers and production companies who want to monetize their content as stock footage without having to do all the work. Clippn reaches over 50% of the global market via the world’s top sites, giving contributors maximum exposure for their content which optimizes sales. Contributors upload their raw content to Clippn where the footage is clipped, tagged, and processed as ready-for-sale clips. This allows contributors to focus on the content they create.

FileCatalyst has been selected as the underlying technology used to accelerate upload tasks performed by creators submitting content. A browser-based instance of FileCatalyst TransferAgent seamlessly accelerates upload tasks and fully saturates the line, resulting in unprecedented transfer speeds. Clippn CEO Mick Reed spoke on the integration saying, “It was easy to integrate FileCatalyst with our existing upload wizard.”

“The delivery of content and metadata has traditionally been a friction point in the stock footage industry. Even with so many options out there, it is not an easy problem to solve elegantly. Clippn chose FileCatalyst because we need to give our contributors an upload experience that is effortless,” said Mr. Reed. “When our contributors use the Clippn Dashboard for the first time to send us their raw content for clipping and tagging, we want them to say, ‘Wow that was fast’ and ‘Wow, that was easy.’ FileCatalyst gives us the ‘wow.’”

“We have been involved in the media & broadcast vertical for over a decade, and it is refreshing to see a company like Clippn come along and streamline the workflows used to upload stock video content,” said Elton Carneiro, FileCatalyst’s Director of Strategic Partnerships & Cloud Services. “We are happy to provide our acceleration to further streamline the process.”

Mr. Reed added, “The experience our contributors get with FileCatalyst boosts their confidence in our model. The faster they get us their footage, the faster we can process it into clips and start monetizing it on stock footage sites. And the easier it is for them, the more they send.”
