MASV (, which offers fast large file transfer for broadcast, sport, and live event video professionals, has announced support for the transfer of in-progress files, accelerating the upload of enormous content.

A ‘Growing File’ refers to a file that is simultaneously being written and read or accessed. In live sports and broadcast, an event’s recording continuously increases in size until the event ends, potentially resulting in hours (and thus many GBs) of content.

Awaiting transfer until file finalisation takes a long time and keeps expensive technical staff, trucks, and equipment on site. By shortening upload times, MASV’s support for in-progress files is a major time- and cost-saver. Most important, MASV Growing Files support lets broadcast staff wrap earlier so they can get home faster to the people they love.

MASV supports all major growing file codecs, including MXF and MOV, the two most popular options among editorial workflows. Growing File uploads are available now at Download of Growing Files will soon follow.

“IABM has cited the talent crunch and macro-economic pressures as two key threats to the MediaTech industry. MASV’s lower costs and growing array of cloud automations represent the most immediate way for media companies to respond to these pressures,” said Greg Wood, CEO at MASV. “Anyone can open a free MASV account and within minutes upload an unlimited volume of content via secure, highest-speed delivery pipeline, all billed on a predictable usage basis.”

MASV APIs, developer tools, and integrations with more than 25 cloud platforms allow MASV to fit into existing workflows and empower broadcasters to move away from insecure on-premises transfer software, FTP, and less performant cloud tools.
