02Our Evolution

The Evolution of ioGates

The History

From FilmFlip to ioGates

Born from Jesper Andersen’s ambition to simplify the digital delivery of video files in post-production, ioGates, initially named FilmFlip, began in 2003 when the proxy preview was still 320x240 (4:3). 

Overcoming Challenges

Despite early hurdles, ioGates persisted. The platform's potential was recognised by significant clients, such as Discovery Denmark, who integrated it into their workflow. The turning point came with a pivotal contract from NATO, demonstrating ioGates' resilience and growing industry trust.

Partnership and Growth

A collaboration with Tobias Steinmann, who joined as CTO and later became a partner, marked a new era for ioGates. In 2011, the platform was relaunched, bringing renewed focus and innovation. This period set the stage for ioGates' current status as a robust, user-friendly solution for media production collaboration.

The Founders

Jesper's vision for ioGates is to continue to grow and enhance the platform with a client-first mentality, ensuring every user's needs are met.

Tobias Steinmann

Tobias Steinmann

Co-Founder & Job Title

Tobias's commitment to ioGates is fueled by his love for technology and creating tools that significantly improve customer productivity.

His involvement with ioGates began as a summer job as a student, initially working on what was then known as FilmFlip. After completing his engineering studies in 2013, he joined Jesper full-time, bringing his technical expertise and innovative ideas to the platform and moving it into its subsequent growth and development stage.

When he's not developing the next ioGates update, Tobias plays the saxophone in two bands: Von Dü, a ska band, and Zirkus, a swing orchestra. For Tobias, music is a way to energise his creative spirit. Learn more at Von Dü and Zirkus Orchestra.

The Partnership

In 2021, ioGates was acquired by LWKS Software Ltd. This collaboration merges the strengths of ioGates’ secure sharing capabilities with LWKS’s expertise in the larger video post-production market. It's a partnership that promises to strengthen the industry's future, offering unmatched tools and opportunities for creative professionals.
