(London, UK--October 3, 2012) Signiant and Sohonet today announced that the Sohonet FileRunner Service based on Signiant Media Shuttle file transfer software has been named among this year's "Best of IBC" award winners by TVB Europe magazine. Selected in the Production and Infrastructure category, the service provides easy-to-use tools for moving high-value media assets between the media organizations that use the high-performance Sohonet Media Network.
"Each year we ask our editorial teams to pick out the most innovative new product introductions at the IBC show," said Fergal Ringrose, editorial director, TVB Europe. "We look for new products that clearly show the potential to help end users make money or save money. From the wealth of nominations collated by our editors, we narrow the list down to the very best to name our annual winners, which this year includes Sohonet's integration of Signiant Media Shuttle."
