IBC 2015: Amagi has announced a new managed cloud-based playout service based on a hybrid architecture of cloud-management and edge-playout solutions.

Assets are ingested and transcoded in the cloud into required formats, with the content archived as required.

The service, which will be showcased at IBC, features an automated content ingest workflow with built-in heuristics to prioritise assets scheduled for early playout.

The playout service enables asset management in the cloud and also includes scheduling and traffic capabilities.

Amagi co-founder K A Srinivasan said: “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.”
