Brevity unveils Desktop app, extending its patented super-accelerated transport, transcoding and compression to everyone

New Brevity Desktop app allows users to use the patented technology for simultaneous transport and transcoding and transfer files to and from any location

New York, NY(07 Nov 2013)

Brevity, a software company that brought to market the first simultaneous transport and transcoding solution and super-accelerated file delivery, announced today the addition of Brevity Desktop to its suite of products. Brevity introduced this free and easy-to-download application to allow users to quickly receive and send video assets to and from any desktop or laptop using file transport acceleration, enabling seamless collaboration with anyone. In conjunction with its newly launched desktop product, Brevity has been awarded a patent on its pipelined protocol technology. 

Brevity Desktop is a solution that provides freedom to deliver or receive large files from any source quickly, while preserving the highest video quality. When combined with Brevity Engines, the Brevity Desktop enables the most cost-efficient delivery of video files to anyone, anywhere—even if they are not a current Brevity customer. 

“Brevity Desktop allows our customers to work with anyone without the need for any special hardware,” said Kevin Norris, President and CEO of Brevity. “Brevity Desktop can send and receive any file to and from a Brevity Engine located anywhere in the world at impressive, accelerated speeds. Utilizing the combination of the Desktop application with a Brevity Engine allows customers to orchestrate complex production, post-production and distribution workflows in just minutes.”

Additionally, Brevity has been awarded a patent for its pipelined protocol, a revolutionary simultaneous and concurrent compression, transmission, and transcoding of files. Now with Brevity Desktop, all users—whether they are Brevity customers or simply working with Brevity customers—can take advantage of this technology to utilize the unique and innovative method for sending and transcoding digital media files.

“We have developed a truly innovative and unique approach for addressing the industry’s most critical workflows,” said Jossi Fresco Benaim, Brevity’s CTO. “Securing a U.S. patent reflects the company’s continuous innovation and unique abilities to deliver value for our customers. With our Brevity Engines, customers can move content from server to server, while simultaneously transcoding to any format, very quickly. With Brevity Desktop they can now send their content to anyone regardless of hardware.”

Brevity deploys a unique pricing model to make its technology easy to adopt and cost-effective for its customers. By instituting usage-based pricing tiers, the Brevity model fits all of its customers’ needs by providing scalable options for delivering large amounts of content in as many formats as required.

“Other pricing models require large, up-front purchases and penalize you based on your bandwidth or the size of your files,” Norris said. “By pricing our solution on hours of content sent, and with no upfront costs, we offer our customers the ability to drive the greatest ROI, while providing them with an unprecedented level of flexibility to scale for the future. Based on initial reactions, we believe we’ve accomplished these goals, while also rewarding customers for their loyalty.”
