MUMBAI: B4U Television Network India has signed on Amagi, the cloud-based broadcast infrastructure and targeted TV advertising company, for a range of end-to-end cloud-based playout services.

Through its flagship channel playout platform, Cloudport 2.0, Amagi?s services will include playout, 24/7 monitoring, conditional access and measurement systems leveraging satellite distribution from satellite operator AsiaSat.

The development marks a step in the adoption of cloud-based managed playout services by TV networks in India and Amagi?s growing expertise in this area. It also demonstrates increasing adoption of the Amagi?s next-generation channel playout management services by TV networks worldwide to monetise their content delivery and distribution.

Amagi is known in the Indian market for geo-targeted advertising. It has served over 30 million ad seconds for more than 2,500 clients including names like HUL, Reckitt & Benckiser, Britannia, and Wipro.

?Amagi?s playout services offer us improved flexibility, transparency, and channel control at very cost-effective rates. We are also delighted with the excellent technical support delivered by Amagi in transitioning from our earlier playout infrastructure in just under two months,? said B4U Network chief financial officer Sandeep Gupta.

?With all our content assets on the cloud, we are in a position to efficiently expand to new geographies and target specific markets as the business demands. It also makes us future-ready, as Amagi?s platforms are extendable for content regionalization, ad monetization, and OTT platform integration,? he added.

The content and playlist is contributed by B4U in Mumbai, India, and the United Kingdom, while playout is uplinked in Hong Kong via AsiaSat. The entire workflow is stitched through Amagi?s cloud infrastructure and monitored by Amagi at its headquarters in Bengaluru.

?Cloudport is rapidly becoming the preferred platform of choice for channel playout and management as TV networks look to leverage new efficiencies available through virtualized playout models,? said Amagi co-founder Srividhya Srinivasan.

?By supporting multisite workflows and collaboration, our Cloudport platform dramatically enhances playout and distribution efficiencies for B4U Television Network India while enabling them to deliver a world-class entertainment experience to customers,? he added.

?We are pleased to continue to support our client, B4U, with high availability ground and space integrated monitoring/control and up-linking service from our Tai Po Earth Station in Hong Kong, along with Amagi who provides end-to-end playout services, enabling B4U to enjoy a total transmission solution for access to Asia-Pacific-wide audiences via AsiaSat,? said AsiaSat VP sales and business development Philip Balaam.
