MASV is a cloud-based file sharing solution that enables professionals to upload, transfer and download documents from one system to another. The solution is offered on a usage-based pricing model.
MASV’s file transfer module enables business managers to transfer large data files to help teams process documents. The solution also creates history logs of all the documents shared that enables tracking and monitoring of file sizes, transfer date and data consumed.
The solution secures file transfers with the help TLS encryption to prevent data theft and data leakage. Users are billed on a monthly basis and the system is suited to both individual users as well as large enterprises. Support is provided through a knowledge base and FAQs.
Fair per-GB pricing avoids the massive licensing costs of the closest competitors. The In-browser, no-plugin system is much easier for our clients and partners to use. Their unique "portal" system makes managing multiple brands / companies / projects very easy. As a user since Beta the system has constantly improved over time. The system has generally been reliable and required significantly less technical assistance on our end than competing solutions. The design is clean and understandible, with fast, good-looking custom branding options. Perhaps most important the MASV team has been *incredibly* responsive to constructive feedback, feature requests, and has been appreciatively transparent when there's (rare) issues.
The highest praise I can give is the number of other companies I deal with who upon seeing and using MASV to send us large files, have moved away from FTP and enterprise file-transfer solutions, and are now using MASV as well. I have told the team before that this is literally the file transfer system I have been (loudly) complaining that someone needed to make - and can't recommend it highly enough now that someone has.
There have been some occasional network reliability and browser / OS quirks through development (I've been a user since Beta) but, to be fair, MASV has been very good at transparency and acknowledging issues. The latest "2.0" major revision (which moved to an entirely new infrastructure provider) seems to have addressed all the major quirks, and (on our end) has been completely issue-free since release.
There are a couple of features which we would very much like to see implemented ASAP (primarily automatic downloading of received packages) which are on the roadmap - but have been pushed back given the large infrastructure changes that (understandably) took priority to stabilize the core platform.

Very simple uploading process and multiple times downloading option. Which is great for my scenario.
Erwin from bigEbox Pro Audio
Its easy and simple to use. Fast and friendly customer support. Right price for the service. Quack quack said the duck!!
Email correspondence does not auto-fill when typing based on contact list or previous emails used. Also not drag and drop of files. Don't like that you have yo choose if its a single file you want to upload or a folder with content in it. It should be a simple upload dialogue box regardless of files or folders you want.

A great "pay as you use" way to send massive video files. Plus, I really like our return "portal" which gives clients and others a way to send large files back to us.
MASV Rush is a simple to use and powerful way to send our large video files to our clients and outside producers. It's notification and tracking tools allow us to confirm files have been uploaded and delivered. When your business relies on sending and receiving 50-gigabyte files or larger, MASV Rush is a no-brainer.
Pay for what you use, no subscription.
Much Easier to use than similar software.
Responsive technical help, especially when you are in a pinch.
MASV is a young company. They cannot get you into every corner of the World, yet!
You pay more when there are multiple recipients.
Not knowing ahead of time, whether a sent file will travel to the selected destination.
Arno from Magic Sound Studios
I love that now you can have a portal and give the link to your clients so they can send you files very easily and securely without having to put in my email address manually.
I would live to be able to save some of the client email addresses that I use constantly so I don't have to manually write them every time. One of my clients wanted to send me a file and they typed my email wrong and it went to someone else, this feature will eliminate the typo problem and to have to go to your contacts and copy paste email addresses...!! Or maybe to have the option to import contacts into your account!
Jonathan from Heritage Films International
The speed is up there with the likes of Aspera, FileCatalyst, Media Shuttle etc but at a fraction of the cost. No minimum monthly costs is a huge bonus, only pay for what we use. Since implementing this in our business, we've delivered over 1.2TB to clients and broadcasters around the world without any issues.
I do wish there was flexibility around the expiry time for packages and the ability to extend this after initially sending the package. Adding support for passphrase authentication on packages would also be a plus. Lastly, the option to hide hidden files when dragging in folders.
José from Blit
Simple to use and very objective. Very fast upload and download with the right ISP.
A very fair price for such create quality in service.
- It doesn't support resume concerning file upload and no realtime info of download progress on the recipient end.
- Concerning link validation, there is no option to upgrade the date of delete.
- It's no possible to retain a partial upload and download.

I can send large video files.. pay as you go.. and very fast.. its changed the jobs I can do.. I would not be able to do shoots that needed large files to be sent by internet.. now I can and its super fast.. even if Im send the main footage as a HDD by fedex.. I can also send the footage by MASV as back up and an extra service .. makes me look good..
That there is no size limit.. and pay as you go..and easy to use..and FAST..!! it has allowed me to take on shoots I wouldn't have before.. I don't want to FPT directly to slow client computers and I don't have edit software to edit or compress files.. and the speed with Accelerator is amazing
The one thing that would make it 101% for me would be that it could transfer empty folders to keep my SxS card folder structure..
Andi from Andi Wardrop Films
As a freelance videographer & editor I spend a LOT of time transferring files back and forth between clients. MASV rush is easy to use, transfers files faster than any other platform and has amazing customer service.
A few times my clients haven't understood the expiry date on files - I've had to tell them separately
that the files will expiry and have had to resend files in a few instances.
Paul from Paul Apito Freelance Design + Motion
A straight forward "push" of larger files, with notification. Fast and straightforward. I like the pay as you go structure.
Philipp from Philipp Rittermann Photography
Simple uncluttered interface, and the best reliability I have encountered so far.
No need to compress files prior to sending.
Excellent and responsive customer service.
Pay as you go.
I would like to be able to retrieve previous recipients more easily, as in auto-populate the recipient email field.
I would like to see the history archive not expire so quickly. It is useful to be able to verify past transmissions without having to sift through email verifications.
It would be useful to have a simple way to add recipients once something has been uploaded. Or, receive a link I can forward to additional recipients.
