MASV Desktop App – The Most Reliable Way To Send Large Files
We told you there were going to be a lot of product updates coming down the pipe and we have two more to go. The whole MASV team is very excited to announce the MASV Desktop beta for Windows and Mac.
MASV exists to solve the problem of sending your largest RAW footage or proxies to anywhere in the world at speeds faster than shipping hard drives. We set out with this goal but wanted to push ourselves even further and do all of that right out of your browser, with a pay-as-you-go business model, and with no software required. We pushed the browsers to their limits and created a solution that works very well for pretty large deliveries but the truth is the browser isn’t the best suited to handle large 500 GB to multi-terabyte files. Today we solve that problem by adding the optional MASV Desktop to the mix.
MASV Desktop is built from the ground up to be unstoppable. MASV Desktop can handle your network going down, will pick up where you left off if your computer goes to sleep, can handle you closing the lid and changing locations, can ensure you’re getting the fastest possible transfer speed, can handle both uploads and downloads with direct integration to the regular MASV download page, and allows you to avoid ever having to unzip a zip file by enabling you to download folders and files directly to your desired drive sans zipping. Best of all, MASV Desktop uses standard ports and TCP so there’s no fist fighting with firewall settings or needing to throttle your speed so you can check your email. It just works.
MASV Desktop makes it possible for the MASV service to fully realize its original goal of combining convenience, performance, and capabilities to fundamentally solve the problem of delivering the largest files for the post-production workflow. We couldn’t be more excited to make this available to you today and are eager to get your feedback on how we can improve this new addition to the MASV service. We will move quickly to address any issues you find during the beta.
MASV Desktop is available to you at no extra cost and all we ask is that you put it to work with your largest deliveries so we can evolve beyond shipping hard drives.
Andrew Tanenbaum once said:
“Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.”
He captured a point in time that lasted through the ages. We hope this next step makes it possible to take your post-production workflow to the next level.
