Founded in 1999, Outpost is the largest independent Picture Post production company based at Pinewood Studios in the UK. They specialize in managing Film and Television post-production projects from shoot to delivery.
One critical challenge faced by the Outpost TEAM was slow data transfer speeds, especially when moving large digital content. Outpost needed to distribute finished video content to their users who are scattered mostly in Europe and USA. The size of files is usually between 100 and 1000GB. The file transfers were lengthy, taking many hours, and sometimes days, to successfully complete. Outpost realized that it was necessary to find a file transfer solution to handle their complex workflows.
With the assistance of Raysync Fast Transfer server, Outpost’s worldwide clients transfer their video content to Raysync admin console via the Raysync user console. Outpost distributes the video content to their clients using the accelerated Raysync file transfer protocol. From installation to configuration, the process was quick, simple, and had no downtime. Outpost’s existing FTP server was connected to the Raysync service. All the file transfers are now at full internet connection speed – transferring securely from end to end.
