ioGates accelerates ingest to the cloud with FileCatalyst

posted in: Press Release

iogates filecatalyst partner Ottawa, ON –  FileCatalyst, an Emmy® award winning pioneer in managed file transfers and a world leading accelerated file transfer solution, announced today the addition of ioGates to their growing network of end users.  

IoGates, based in Copen­hagen, Den­mark, is a cloud-based media storage platform that manages media file sharing, converting, and distribution in a comprehensive workflow management service. Over the past 13 years, ioGates has been developed to manage file-based workflows, either as the central MAM or as the in-and-out MAM where a traditional MAM is not flexible enough to handle today’s requirements for multi-format support.

“ioGates has developed a simple solution for handling media files that does not require users to have advanced technical knowledge and can be securely managed from within a web browser or phone app,” said ioGates CEO, Jesper Anderson. “Because of FileCatalyst, our customers can ingest media at top-speed, benefitting from optimized workflows that save their organizations time and money.”

ioGates upload software has all the latest security features and uses FileCatalyst’s User Datagram Protocol (UDP) based solution which is significantly faster than traditional FTP. The ioGates platform allows users to drag and drop files into the upload box where they are transferred at breakneck speeds to their account.

“FileCatalyst is pleased to see the results ioGates customers are having in regards to the speed at which they ingest media to the cloud,” said Alan Atkinson, FileCatalyst, Vice President Marketing & Business Development.

Amongst ioGates many customers include Broadcast Pix, aleading provider of integrated live video productions systems. Broadcast Pix required a custom workflow so their clients could access the cloud directly from their switchers. ioGates responded to their request, creating a workflow where video, audio and stills could be transferred between the ioGates cloud service and Broadcast Pix switchers with the use of FileCatalyst Direct, Central and HotFolder – products in the FileCatalyst suite that work seamlessly together to eliminate slow file transfers and send large files fast.

FileCatalyst will demonstrate the technology used by ioGates at IBC 2016 in Amsterdam, NL from September 8-12.  Schedule a meeting with FileCatalyst to learn more about their suite of products, or stop by FileCatalyst at booth 7.H37 or visit ioGate at the Broadcast Pix booth 7.b27 to learn more.
