The Danish Broadcasting Corporation, DR was searching for a tool for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen, that could fulfil their need to upload and download large media files and subsequently share, edit, and distribute them to production teams and decision makers in all 42 participating countries. Founded in 2003 ioGates developed and matured the professional tools necessary to become the central hub for the Eurovision Song Contest. With this flexible toolset ioGates created unique workflows for each process of the production.

The hosting broadcaster starts in January with preliminary rehearsals that need to be reviewed by each country. After this the main media flow starts with uploading, downloading and sharing of video, audio, stills, word and excel files, etc. Producers, directors, lighting artists, and video producers need to view, comment, and approve all performers with simple and secure workflows.

The workflows were 100% automated, where master files are transcoded from interlaced to progressive, so whatever format the host broadcaster were sent from the participating countries they only received a single progressive format of choice.

As a testament to the excellence of ioGates deep toolset, since 2014 almost every host broadcaster chose ioGates for their production of the Eurovision Song Contest.
