MASV Integrates with Microsoft Suite

by Ankit Verma | December 7, 2021

With over 250 million subscribers daily active users currently using Microsoft Teams, we are excited to announce that we have integrated our file transfer tooling with the broader Microsoft Suite to improve remote collaboration. This announcement includes support for Microsoft Teams, Microsoft OneDrive, and our existing integration with Microsoft Azure.

Microsoft Teams

First up, notification tracking within Microsoft Teams.

Similar to our Slack integration, Microsoft Teams users can now track the status of MASV file transfers with the Teams app. Users can see all relevant details, including the file name, size, and download/upload status. The Teams integration also supports direct file downloads within a user’s Teams app. Great for Project Managers and Producers who need to track the progress of deliverables.

    Microsoft OneDrive

    Next, one-click downloads directly to Microsoft OneDrive.

    We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: downloading files only to re-upload to a cloud storage is a waste of time.

    With our OneDrive integration, any files received through MASV can be transferred to a user’s OneDrive account by hitting “Save to OneDrive” on the package download page. The files will automatically appear in OneDrive inside of a folder labelled “MASV”.

    Microsoft Azure

    Heavy data users will be pleased to know that MASV supports direct uploads to Microsoft Azure through our 1) Send to Cloud button, and 2) MASV Portal feature. 

    Send to Cloud is for manually sending individual files. A Portal lets users create automations that route any files delivered to a Portal into cloud storage.

    When creating a Portal, simply select Microsoft Azure as a Cloud Connection, enter the appropriate credentials, and hit “Connect”. To learn more about MASV Portals, watch the video below.

    Microsoft SharePoint

    We are currently working on an integration with Microsoft SharePoint that lets MASV users transfer files directly into their SharePoint, similar to OneDrive and Azure. Stay tuned!

    An increasing number of creative professionals, agencies, and production companies have adopted Microsoft products for remote work. We hope this new set of tooling helps MASV users work smarter and more efficiently the next time they need to send files to clients and/or colleagues through Microsoft Suite.

    To set up MASV notifications in Microsoft Teams, follow this brief set-up guide. To connect with Microsoft OneDrive or Azure, log-in to your MASV account. A Microsoft user but not using MASV? Sign-up today and get 100 GB free towards your next transfer.

    A Secure Remote Workflow Checklist for Video Pros

    For filmmakers and other video production professionals, intellectual property (IP) is everything. That’s why most professional studios are cocooned by multiple security layers. These layers often include physical security elements such as guards, fobbed doors, and CCTV cameras; air-gapped RAID arrays and workstations; strict access control to applications and data; and even audited computer sessions that record every click and keystroke in real-time. So how can you maintain a similarly airtight security posture while working with multiple remote stakeholders around the world, each accessing video content via the internet and often using residential WiFi networks? The task may seem daunting. But it is possible. Here’s a secure remote workflow checklist video pros can use to keep prying eyes away from unreleased content.

    How Much Is a Terabyte?

    Anyone who works with large files on a regular basis — like a videographer working with raw 4K footage — is used to the sticker shock of a terabyte (TB). While most consumers still consider a terabyte to be a considerable amount of data, it’s also clear a terabyte ‘aint what it used to be as file sizes and internet usage increase. Either way you look at it, a terabyte is still a monster when it comes to data measurement (just google the origin of the word tera). 👹 A terabyte can hold the same amount of data as nearly a million floppy disks or 1,498 CDs. The first 1 TB external hard drive didn’t even exist until 2007. So, let’s explore the true weight of how much is a terabyte and drill into the nuts and bolts. In this post, I will explore frequently asked questions regarding terabyte...

    Why Are Most Cloud File Transfer Services So Slow?

    It is a poorly-known fact that internet speed does not correlate to high performance in cloud applications. Not enough internet or network congestion can influence your speed but it’s likely that your cloud file transfer service is intentionally throttling your speeds to save on costs and balance other requests.
