Live Linear OTT Playout from Amagi

Amagi has announced CLOUDPORT OTT for live linear playout from the cloud.

The platform switches live feeds, supports graphics functions including digital video effects and is equipped with a live MCR capability. The entire OTT playout workflow can be managed remotely using a web-based UI.

"CLOUDPORT OTT has all the features that traditional TV networks need. It is built on a secure, reliable, and scalable Amazon AWS cloud infrastructure, complete with an in-built feature to block geo-specific content to manage content rights obligations," said K. A. Srinivasan, co-founder of Amagi. "The platform seamlessly integrates with Amagi's server-side OTT ad insertion solution, Thunderstorm, to monetise content effectively. This way TV networks and content owners have access to an integrated platform for OTT playout and monetization, simplifying overall operations."
