Broadcast Pix is set to acquire cloud-based video production company ioGates.
The companies are currently believed to be finalising the details of the agreement, which has come as a result of the partnership established during the development and recent announcement of Broadcast Pix’s BPNet solution.
Founded in 2003, ioGates brings a ‘proven offering’ designed to enable media producers to share, convert, distribute and archive their media files via the cloud.
According to the company, it has developed ‘exclusive techniques’ important for meeting the requirements of video production workflows that use the cloud, such as accelerated uploading, instant frame-accurate video preview from the web and automated video transcoding.
Jesper Andersen, ioGates CEO, said, “Our goal is to enable digital media producers to create, manage and distribute content anytime, anywhere, using any platform.
“As a leader in the live production market, Broadcast Pix enables us to bring our solution to a much wider audience.”
Broadcast Pix provides tailored solutions for live production environment, from compact mobile units to large-scale solutions, designed to make it easy to optimise and customise workflows.
Kevin Prince, Broadcast Pix CEO, said, “What we achieved with integrated production systems was to create a hub where all the elements of live production come together.
“With the acquisition of ioGates and the release of BPNet, we are making it possible for that effortless orchestration, between people and systems, to exist without the constraints of time and place. ioGates gives Broadcast Pix a proven platform in the cloud.
“Together with our live production systems and video-over-IP knowledge, we are able to present our customers with a clear pathway to the next stage in efficient, cost-effective, and unbounded creative production.”
