Chelmsford, Mass.-based control and automation tech company Broadcast Pix has added cloud-based video production specialist ioGates, the company announced at IBC, folding in a company that helped Broadcast Pix develop its BPNet cloud-based IP media workflow and storage system. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

“IP has been a part of the Broadcast Pix strategy for almost a decade, and our acquisition of ioGates underscores our commitment to cloud-based video production workflows over IP networks,” said Broadcast Pix CEO Kevin Prince, in a statement. “With the architects of BPNet now part of the Broadcast Pix team, we will continue to provide cloud-based solutions for our customers and lead the innovation in this emerging market.”
