Reliable + Efficient
With SkyFile Video sending video files from any place to anywhere in the world is easy and often more efficient and quicker than placing a phone call or dispatching additional field staff to a remote site. SkyFile Video provides a unique solution tailored to meet the requirements of a wide range of users, including NGO correspondents, government and military units, and the maritime industry. The transmission protocol is completely secure and reliable. If disconnection occurs during transmission, your data will be saved. Automatic reconnection is initiated until the transmission is entirely complete. Even if your video transmission is not completed, a recipient can still play the video files.

Easy to install and easy to use, SkyFile Video does not
require IT knowledge or any other technical competences. In a few clicks mobile workers such as engineers, maintenance officers or NGO aid workers, equipped with a computer, any video source and a communication link can easily capture, edit, compress and send videos from anywhere on the globe.

There are no investment or maintenance costs associated with having your FTP service, as it is provided free of cost by Vizada. The SkyFile Video server is hosted on our SkyFile® Access, which offers you dedicated FTP space that can be managed remotely via web interface or FTP Client software. Together with SkyFile Video, it provides you a complete and seamless video service.

The high level of compression is one of the most important benefits of the software. It uses encoded Windows Media 9 file, encapsulated in Microsoft WMV file format, or PAL or NTSC standard. Customers can select among four compression pre-setting rates provided by the software.
