How to transfer large data files safe and easy?

By October 20, 2018Blog

As we all know technology is developing faster than we can imagine. Enabling us to work faster, more structured and safely. Working efficiently means saving time and with that saving money.  Simple as that. Filesharing is one of those examples of technology that made our lives easier. However, there are limitations to many filetransfer methods. Example? One of them is having to download your files first before you can view, let alone use them. Limitations like this will cost your company precious time and storage space. How exactly? Keep reading and see if you recognize some of the common problems. You probably will.

Preview your files in the cloud

When working with mediafiles nowadays, the quality and the filesizes get better and better by the day. MediaLab lets you view these files without downloading, so you can save time and save storage space on your computer. So why is this such a good thing? When you operate in a business where you work with large media files, you want to be able to send and receive them as quickly and easy as possible.

The hassle of regular media transfer

But, reality is different. Does this situation sound familiar? You get a notification that someone has sent you a large amount of data. This can be via FTP, a free online file transfer tool or via a link from a filesharing tool. You want to take a quick look and decide if you need to use them right away or if  it can wait until after your meeting. Or maybe you want to check if you received the right files in the first place. Because time is money, remember?

Unfortunately you have to download your files first, before you can have a proper look at them. In many cases you need to get an account to open the link. Or you need to install software before you can actually start downloading. Downloading takes time and it takes up storage space to save them.  When you are finally done, you take a look and find out that you are still missing some files or that these aren’t the files that you were expecting. So now you have to delete those files again and inform the sender that they have to resend their files. Or al least, if you remember to delete them. Frustrating? Yes! If only you could have known that before downloading them all. Like by viewing them without downloading first for instance. Now wouldn’t that be great.

The solution

Maybe you never realised how much of an hassle receiving media files can be, until now. Thankfully, MediaLab provides you with a much easier solution. As mentioned, you can simply view your files without having to download them. Preview your media files in the cloud and go from there. Time saved, space saved, problem solved.
