Digidesign DigiDelivery Serv GT DigiDelivery Systems/Exchange
In the increasingly collaborative world of media production, moving digital assets quickly and securely between facilities remains a critical bottleneck. FTP services can be difficult to set up and customize, require extensive account management, and are often unreliable with large file transfers. Overnight delivery services are expensive and involve cutoff times that can interrupt your creativity. Delivery at best is next-day, and longer if your shipment has to clear Customs.
DigiDelivery™ makes easy work of exchanging everything from a single graphics file to a colossal post session by offering the most efficient, secure means yet of transferring digital assets across the Internet. Downloads are as simple as clicking a link in an email - no need to enter IP addresses, usernames or passwords. Reliability is built into the DigiDelivery system so you can count on the robust, consistent performance typical of all Digidesign products. Additionally, each and every digital parcel is protected by the same heavy-duty encryption used by banks and government agencies. Perhaps most valuable, DigiDelivery saves you time and money by eliminating customization costs, service fees, and missed deliveries, while billing your customers becomes a breeze.
The Cornerstone of Collaboration
Based on RocketDelivery™ and RocketServer™ technology, DigiDelivery is the first module of Digidesign's fully integrated collaborative workflow system centered on a choice of two rock-solid Ethernet-connected server appliances that ship preconfigured for easy installation. The Digidesign Serv|LT™ suits small- to medium-sized facilities and stores 20 pending deliveries (up to 80 GB total). This appliance supports one "Standard" account that can exchange deliveries with anyone and unlimited "Guest" accounts that can exchange deliveries with the Standard account. The Digidesign Serv|GT™ has higher data throughput and can store an unlimited number of deliveries (up to 500 GB total). It also features unlimited "Standard" accounts making this the choice for major facilities that can't afford to miss a beat. No matter which version you choose, you get all the advantages above and beyond the standard delivery systems.
Ease of Use
DigiDelivery is one of the most accommodating delivery systems ever devised. Anyone with a basic understanding of computers can configure their DigiDelivery server via its SetUp Wizard. Similarly, the simple client utility makes the quick drag-and-drop process of creating and sending a delivery - of any size - as easy as sending email.
As soon as a delivery is posted, an email notification is automatically sent to the recipient. That message contains details about the delivery, a message from the sender, a link to download the client if necessary, and the encryption key that the recipient simply clicks to securely download the delivery. (For maximum security, the key can be transmitted verbally instead of via email.) No passwords, IP addresses, etc., are needed. Once the recipient successfully downloads the delivery, the sender receives a confirmation email.
While DigiDelivery is optimal for any kind of digital asset transfer, Pro Tools users have extra advantages: Simply drag-and-drop your Pro Tools session icon onto the DigiDelivery interface to "package" and deliver all related files, including audio, video, and plug-in settings (with Pro Tools 5.1 or newer sessions). No need to worry about missing files, time-consuming consolidations, or storage-consuming copies.
Additionally, the DigiDelivery server is self-maintaining. Deliveries that have been successfully downloaded by all recipients are automatically deleted from the server appliance after a waiting period determined by the sender. With DigiDelivery, gone are the days of tying up your disk space with unnecessary files.
Obviously, the safekeeping of your digital assets during any type of transfer is crucial. To that end, all deliveries are encrypted on the client before posting and only the recipients of the secure keys can download and decrypt them, so your media is safe - even if the server is stolen! And unlike FTP sites, senders and recipients never see the contents of the DigiDelivery server, so there's no need to administer account privileges. Recipients require no passwords, greatly reducing the risk of sensitive access information being improperly distributed. What's more, DigiDelivery's special account structure allows you to let other people post deliveries to recipients whom you know, but prevents those posters from hijacking your server to send deliveries to strangers.
Speed and Reliability
DigiDelivery's design includes several measures that ensure maximum efficiency and stability. Proprietary communication protocols guarantee the robust transmission of data between server and client. As an owner of a DigiDelivery system, you upload and download files at LAN speeds, freeing up your workstation much faster than if you were to post to a public FTP site or burn a CD. Lossless compression (optional) reduces the size of the files to be exchanged by as much as 60%, resulting in faster upload and download times, while ensuring a totally bit-accurate copy on delivery.
In the rare case of a lost connection (common with long FTP transfers), DigiDelivery's auto-reconnect feature reestablishes contact and resumes the transfer from where it left off.
Reporting and Billing
Comprehensive reporting and billing functions offered within DigiDelivery provide clear confirmation of delivery and make it a snap to bill your clients. With a standard web browser, you can view all deliveries and even have reports automatically emailed to you daily.
