When you’re working with video files, you know they’re going to be large. Getting them from the video shoot location to the editing room, or from your computer to your client’s, needs to be fast and accurate, with no margin for error. Every film production professional understands the importance of file quality and you can rely on our platform to guarantee the best results.
Six ways Digital Pigeon can help your Film, TV & VFX Studios:
Video files are often massive. Digital Pigeon’s instant media previews mean your client can stream your video directly in their browser, saving time and headaches. It also allows you to get feedback sooner, so you can complete projects (and send invoices) quicker.
Previews are available in resolutions up to 1080p.
Send, share and receive files up to a whopping 200 GB in size.* Never miss a deadline because the file was "too big."
* (Even larger limits available on request).
Sending and receiving big video files with software that’s user-friendly
You don’t have to be an IT expert to use our services and the simple interface ensures that virtually anyone can send and receive large files. Regardless of whether you’re a technical whizz or can barely send an email, if you can click a mouse you can use Digital Pigeon. Simplicity is the key to making sure that you and your clients, regardless of computing proficiency, can transfer files effectively.
How do Film, TV & VFX Studios use Digital Pigeon?
Studios can quickly and securely assemble examples of work to pitch for new business. Full-screen previews allow simple navigation, branded presentation, and instant access.
Production teams on location can send the dailies back to the studio for feedback from the teams. In fact, Rampant, a NYC based post-production studio switched from Hightail to Digital Pigeon so that they could transfer 30-40GB per day to the editor of a feature film.
Film crews can deliver masters and other full-resolution file formats (4K, 8K, etc) without hassle. International businesses use our Content Delivery Network to get files from side of the globe to the other, quickly and reliably.
TV Studios around the world receive audition submissions for various reality TV shows. Using our feedback tool, they can easily shortlist, share and provide internal feedback with team members - all in one system.
Location scouts can take shots of potential locations then share their findings with their team and studio heads, who can send instant feedback - while someone is still on location.
RECEIVING FOOTAGE FROM STRINGERS
News networks (TV, online news, etc) can receive breaking news captured from independent operators in the field without fear of missing a story due to an unreliable file transfer service. Our Geomatch technology ensure that Stringers can quickly and reliably get footage to a news network - wherever they are in the world.
Production and post studios use us for transferring large video files.
Sending large files as FTP to Government and corporate customers has been a challenge in the past. These guys block Dropbox. Digital Pigeon goes straight through and I love that I can see when the customer opens the file too.
In our business, if it’s not working, we look elsewhere for a solution. We tried Dropbox, WeTransfer and a few others… they didn’t do the job we needed. That’s how we found Digital Pigeon. We no longer need to keep looking.
Digital Pigeon has so much more to offer. Ultimately for me, it’s an efficiency thing. Digital Pigeon makes getting files to and from my clients effortless and near instant, which is something that my clients have really come to value. Digital Pigeon is a match made in heaven—a true tool for power users.

I love everything about it! I cannot imagine my work without it! How otherwise could I distribute my show on so many TVs in a blink of an eye? How could I not be amazed by the fact that I’m instantly noticed when each one of these access my file? And I know that they appreciate the possibility to preview the file before downloading it!
