Amagi Media to tie up with 5 broadcasters

KOLKATA: Amagi Media Labs is gearing to increase its reach. The Bengaluru based technology and media startup that facilitates geo-targeting of television advertisements, is now expanding its services to five more national broadcasters. And all this in the next two-three months.


“We are in discussions with broadcasters who have presence largely in the Hindi speaking markets (HSM),” informed Amagi Media Labs business head LS Krishnan.


Amagi had recently roped in Zee Media as a broadcast partner and in turn added Zee News and Zee Business to its channel roster. “IBN7, CNBC Awaz, Times Now and UTV Movies, among others are our partners,” he said.


The company is also looking at getting the fourth round of private equity funding. “We have signed the paper and expect the funds flowing in the company, anytime sooner,” added Krishnan, without divulging any detail on the amount to be infused in Amagi for further expansion of business.


Krishnan who was addressing the press in Kolkata, stressed on the eastern region becoming an important destination for national brands. “The region is important for brands that are looking for deeper penetration and reach. 45 per cent of viewers in West Bengal are Hindi speaking. The region contributes around 20-25 per cent to our topline. We aim to scale up in terms of advertisers here,” he said.  


Currently, Amagi has around 50 clients in the state. Some of which are: Shalimar, Konark Cement and Keo Karpin. “80 per cent of the revenue comes from the FMCG sector,” concluded Krishnan.
