Broadcast Pix Releases Free ioGates Desktop App

With the new ioGates Desktop App, any member of your workflow can now view and browse files, as well as upload and exchange content, within an ioGates cloud account—for free.

ioGates, a Broadcast Pix company, has announced the release of its new ioGates Desktop App that makes it possible to distribute large content files via its secure cloud-based video management service.

And best of all, it’s free.

As Jesper Andersen, COO of ioGates, explained to me during our exclusive pre-NAB 2018 interview direct from Copenhagen, not only is the app free to download from the App Store or Google Play, but Andersen told me you can also apply for a trial account if you want to test drive the system before committing.

“The app runs on either iOS or Android cell phones,” Andersen told me, “or it can be installed on Mac, Windows, and Linux operating systems. That means everyone in your workflow chain, no matter where they are located around the globe, can have access to this storage.”

The app even takes care of file format conversion. You just drag-and-drop your video file, select the format(s) you need, and ioGates handles the rest.

“That means the system can download NLE-friendly files, such as native Avid files,” Andersen said, “while maintaining the original folder structure. And the share link lets crews in the field review dailies on location. It’s like a gearbox for content delivery and receiving.”

Once you’ve decided your production wants to use this cloud-based management system, you pay for the account on a sliding scale that is competitive with most other storage pricing, starting at about $15/month including a proxy preview of the upload video and audio.

“Security is very high with the use of two-factor authentication both for admin login and sharing login,” Andersen assures us, “so your ioGates is 100% protected under two-factor protection.”
