The Challenge:

I’m Spending Too Much Time Transferring Files. It’s Distracting Me From My Other Tasks.

To keep your media project moving, you need to send, receive, and store large files between your clients and colleagues. Doing this takes time because:

  1. Media files are notoriously big and susceptible to slowdowns and errors.
  2. Manually initiating and monitoring a file transfer distracts you from more important tasks you could be doing.

The Solution:

MASV — An Accelerated and Automated File Transfer Platform.

MASV Watch Folders UI elements

Save time and boost efficiency with MASV, a revolutionary file sharing app that combines cloud-based file acceleration with automation inside a secure environment for fast media delivery you can depend on.

MASV offers two types of file transfer automation:

  1. Watch Folders to automate uploads and downloads.
  2. a MASV Portal to automatically ingest contributor files to cloud storage.

What Can I Do With Watch Folders and Portals?

A Watch Folder is a folder on your computer that automatically triggers a specific task when you put a new file or folder in it. A MASV Portal is a sharable, customizable way to collect files from anyone, even if they don’t have a MASV account.

You can automate your workflow in these ways:

Send to Recipients

Assign a Watch Folder on your computer to upload files and folders to predetermined email addresses (up to 30 recipients).

Send to Portal

Set-up a Watch Folder to upload to a MASV Portal. If that Portal has integrations to cloud services, any file it receives automatically transfers to those services.

Receive from a Portal

Set a Watch Folder to auto-download files uploaded to a MASV Portal. MASV can even download files from a date prior to the creation of your automation.

NEW: Growing Files

With Growing Files, you can set up a Watch Folder to automatically start transferring in-progress media files from a live camera feed.
