Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best Media Shuttle alternative?

MASV is a simple, intuitive, and affordable Signiant Media Shuttle alternative that delivers files of any size at incredibly fast speeds.

With MASV, users can get the same (or even better) performance as Media Shuttle without the complex IT environment and long, arduous sales process. Simply sign-up at and send files immediately.

Users can send up to 15 TB per file using their entire internet bandwidth, with built-in encryption, transfer recovery, and client-side acceleration.

And unlike Signiant, which uses UDP, MASV runs on a modified version of TCP which allows files to travel far and fast without running into any firewalls or port-forwarding issues.

How much does Signiant Media Shuttle cost?

Signiant Media Shuttle pricing starts $7500/year for 25 TB of data. That’s approximately $0.30 for every gigabyte. Overages are $0.10/GB beyond 25 TBs. This price does not include file storage.

In comparison, MASV charges a flat $0.25 for every gigabyte downloaded. There is no charge to upload and all files are stored for 7-days free. Extra days can be purchased at $0.10/GB.

Additionally, MASV offers volume pricing at a reduced per GB rate if you plan on sending more than 10 TB a year.

Is MASV faster than Media Shuttle?

MASV and Media Shuttle are both comparable in transfer speed. Signiant Media Shuttle uses UDP to transfer files while MASV runs on a modified version of TCP.

UDP is considered the fastest communication protocol since it soaks up an entire network’s bandwidth to complete its delivery. The problem with this aggressive approach is that it tends to:

  1. Set off firewall flags
  2. Slows down others on the same network
  3. Drop packets of data along the way

IT teams often have to troubleshoot UDP deliveries and implement port-forwarding.

So although UDP might be faster than TCP, it’s not as reliable and leads to multiple transfers of the same file.

MASV’s modified version of TCP will use up to 90% of your overall bandwidth. It has built-in congestion control to monitor traffic and adjust accordingly so to be consideration of others on the same network.

And with MASV’s 300+ worldwide servers, files don’t have to travel far between sender and recipient, which allows for fast, fair, and reliable delivery that safely passes through firewalls.
