Digidesign Exchange DigiDelivery File Exchange System
The Digidesign® DigiDelivery™ file exchange system makes it easy to exchange even gigabytes of digital assets securely and efficiently across the Internet. Send files by dragging them onto the DigiDelivery icon on your desktop and entering the email address of each recipient. Receive downloads simply by clicking a secure link — there’s no need to enter IP addresses, usernames, or passwords. Each and every digital parcel is protected by the same heavy-duty encryption used by banks and government agencies, and dedicated, custom-built hardware guarantees reliability. DigiDelivery eliminates service fees, while automated reporting makes it easy to bill customers. Best of all, DigiDelivery does not require clients or contractors to have special hardware or network connections to use the system, so you can exchange files with anyone in the world.
The Cornerstone of Collaboration
DigiDelivery offers a choice of two rock-solid network appliances, both of which ship preconfigured for easy installation. The Digidesign Serv|LT™ server appliance suits small-to-medium-sized facilities, storing twenty pending deliveries (up to 80 GB total).The Digidesign Serv|GT™ appliance provides higher data throughput and can store an unlimited number of deliveries (up to 500 GB total), making this the choice for major facilities that can’t afford to miss a beat.
No matter which server you choose, the DigiDelivery system provides a wealth of advantages compared with standard delivery systems.
Ease of Use
DigiDelivery offers unparalleled security without sacrificing ease of use. Anyone with a basic understanding of computers can configure a DigiDelivery server using the Setup Wizard. Once the system is configured, the simple client utility makes the process of creating and sending a delivery — of any size — as easy as sending email. To send, simply drag and drop files onto the DigiDelivery icon and enter each recipient’s email address.
As soon as a delivery is posted, an email is automatically sent to each recipient. The email contains the delivery details, a message from the sender, a link to download the client if necessary, and an encrypted key, which the recipient simply clicks to securely download the delivery. (For extra security, senders can transmit the key verbally instead of by email.) No user names, passwords, or IP addresses 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, Digidesign Pro Tools® system users enjoy extra advantages: When you add a Pro Tools session file to your delivery, DigiDelivery automatically finds and includes all related audio, video, and plug-in settings files. There’s no need to worry about missing files, time-consuming consolidations, or storage-consuming copies.
You can also send Pro Tools sessions via an integrated “Send to DigiDelivery” command right within the Pro Tools software. Once you select the command, you’ll be able to choose whether to include audio, video, fade, plug-in setting, and/or timeline files. The DigiDelivery client launches and the login page opens, ready for you to complete the delivery.
The DigiDelivery server is also self-cleaning. Once deliveries have been successfully downloaded by all recipients, the deliveries are automatically deleted from the server. With DigiDelivery, you no longer have worry about tying up disk space with unnecessary files.
Protecting digital assets during any type of transfer is crucial. With DigiDelivery, all files are encrypted on the client before posting, and only the recipients of the secure keys can download and decrypt them. As a result, your media is always safe — even if the server appliance is stolen. And unlike FTP sites, senders and recipients never see the contents of the DigiDelivery server, so there’s no fear of someone getting the wrong files or seeing other clients’ projects. Because recipients do not need to have accounts on your server to receive assets, you save administration time and reduce the risk that login information will be improperly distributed.
Speed and Reliability
DigiDelivery’s design includes several features to ensure maximum efficiency and stability. Proprietary communication protocols accelerate the transmission of data between server and client. An owner of a DigiDelivery system can upload and download files at LAN speeds, freeing up the workstation much more quickly than posting to a public FTP site or burning a DVD. Lossless compression (optional) reduces the size of the files to be exchanged by as much as 50%, resulting in faster upload and download times while ensuring a totally bit-accurate copy on delivery. In the case of a lost connection, DigiDelivery re-establishes contact and picks up the transfer from where it left off rather than starting over again, as an FTP process would.
DigiDelivery offers comprehensive reporting and billing functions to provide clear confirmation of every delivery and to make it easy to bill clients. Using a standard web browser, you can view all deliveries sent and received during the past 180 days and even request daily email reports. Track deliveries by client, project, account, and workorder number; flag deliveries for billing; sort by any criteria and export tab-delimited reports for use in Microsoft Excel or other accounting software.
To prevent the unauthorized abuse so common with FTP servers, DigiDelivery offers Guest Accounts that can exchange files with only your trusted Standard Account holders. That means you can exchange files with anyone in the world without having to worry that someone is using your system to distribute files to people you don’t know. The Serv|LT supports one Standard Account, so all incoming deliveries are sent to a single email account. The Serv|GT offers unlimited Standard Accounts, so each of your trusted users can receive delivery notifications directly via their own email accounts.
If both sender and recipient have DigiDelivery servers, they can use Server-to-Server relay to further accelerate the delivery process, extending deadlines and reducing turnaround time. With Server-to-Server relay, deliveries are automatically transferred from the sender’s DigiDelivery server to the recipient’s, without the recipient having to first initiate the download. For example, a project that needs to be delivered to another facility by the next morning can be transferred late at night and be ready for a rapid download when the recipient arrives.
