ioGates, a provider of cloud-based tools for sharing, converting, and distributing professional media files, has signed a three-year partnership agreement with the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR).
ioGates will provide DR with its own ioGates-powered portal for sharing and exchanging audiovisual content across departments and content partners. The company supplies similar hosting solutions to broadcasters including TV3 Sport, TV 2 Denmark, SBS Discovery, and Nordisk Film Shortcut.
The partnership follows a collaboration during the international Eurovision Song Contest 2014, in which ioGates provided DR with a video-hosting solution allowing the 37 participating countries to exchange complex media files throughout the competition.
Using the ioGates portal, DR users can upload, convert, share, and distribute content in any video format. The broadcaster’s different departments can quickly send clips out to employees in the field, while camera operators can easily send clips back to editorial staff. At the same time, programme-producing departments can send video files and daily rushes to producers, directors, and others involved in new productions in order to make editing and programming decisions without delay.
"Having a partnership with this respected national broadcaster speaks volumes about the ioGates platform's sophisticated simplicity," said ioGates CEO Jesper Andersen. "ioGates not only meets DR's requirement for a professional system that is easy to use, but it also helps accelerate DR's workflow to ensure that it can send content to air as quickly as possible."
