Amagi, a broadcast infrastructure specialist, has launched a new cloud-based managed playout service designed to simplify video content preparation, management, and delivery for broadcasters.
By using the end-to-end cloud-based service for content delivery, playout management, ingest, asset and archival management, , traffic and scheduling, and monitoring, broadcasters can increase workflow efficiency and reduce costs, Amagi said.
“Faced with the challenge of delivering more content to an ever growing number of devices, today's broadcasters need scalable, flexible, and cost-effective playout solutions,” said K.A. Srinivasan, co-founder of Amagi. "Our next-generation cloud-based service transforms the way broadcasters handle video content, enabling them to distribute content more efficiently and cost-effectively on a global scale. Building on our successful Cloudport infrastructure, we are now providing automated, technology-driven services, and a partner marketplace to provide a completely managed playout service to TV networks."
