Digidesign and Emagic always seem to have a stand next to each other at NAMM - and great big luxurious ones they are too. Digi a lot of demo space and an enormous rack of hardware - one item being the new DigiDelivery server, a 1-unit computer that could set "the new standard in secure, global file transfer".
Combining an ultra-simple software utility with an industrial grade server appliance, DigiDelivery enables users to securely exchange any kind of digital file of virtually any size with anyone in the world. With DigiDelivery installed on an Ethernet network, DSL or cable modem, users simply drag and drop files to send a delivery, or click a link in an email to receive a delivery there’s no need for recipients to enter IP addresses, usernames, or passwords. DigiDelivery is faster, more secure, and more reliable than FTP or overnight deliveries.
The application, while obviously dead handy for the ProTools users for transferring sessions and multi-track files hither and thither over the globe, will surely make sense for moving mixes for approval, artwork and videos etc or any large files and could make sense to anyone with the need. The concept is simple, but no doubt behind the placid blue panel, there's all sorts of fiendishly clever stuff going on.
