Venture 3D a stereoscopic 3D conversion production company based in Los Angeles is using its Signian Media Shuttle hybrid SaaS file transfer solution to facilitate collaboration with partners in Hong Kong Beijing Seoul and Korea on an upcoming feature film. Known for its conversion work on Titanic 3D and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader Venture 3D is using Media Shuttle to deliver the film Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons  directed by Stephen Chow of Shaolin Soccer and Kung Fu Hustle fame. What we needed was a tall order: the ability to transfer large files quickly access them anywhere control and track file access and not be limited by the size of the file or the number of people that could access those files said Todd Cogan senior vice president operations Venture 3D. Using Media Shuttle we are able to go outside of our circle of local partners to expand our business in Asia while making the workflow process extremely easy for our clients. Solutions we have used in the past made content delivery laborious and cost intensive but with Media Shuttle we are able to move content efficiently and affordably. Exchanging digital assets of this size and frequency can be complex and Venture 3D needed its delivery solution to be both reliable and effortless for its production partners. Media Shuttle's onboard checkpoint restart feature automatically retries or resumes transfers if they are interrupted for any reason and email notifications alert users when content is delivered. The system's graphical dashboard gives Venture 3D complete visibility into all file transfer activity including average transfer rate file size and speed. The notification feature was a great selling point for us as it takes the onus off the client and makes Venture 3D a desirable collaboration partner Cogan continued. Media Shuttle gives us the freedom to work with partners of our choosing and allows us to work globally regardless of location and file size. Additionally we can now work with the multiple offices of our partners in the region – essentially anyone who needs to partner with us – easily without delays or limitations. Venture 3D is leading the fast-growing market of 3D conversion and with Media Shuttle we are able to stay on the cutting-edge by having the most sophisticated solutions available to ourselves and our partners said Cogan. Being able to defy the constraints of file size and distance and instead focus on creative collaboration we are able to perfect our specialty and in turn advance the industry.
