Amagi Cloud now fully manages all international services of Vice TV in APAC and EMEA


Vice TV has moved its UK and France linear channel to Amagi Cloud’s fully virtual cloud playout platform.  

This move means that Amagi now fully manages all international services for Vice TV channels in the APAC and EMEA regions.  

For Vice TV, Amagi has deployed Cloudport, a cloud-based channel playout platform that offers broadcast-grade quality with the flexibility of cloud deployment. Using the cloud platform, built on AWS public cloud infrastructure, Vice has been able to expand its channels for the regions – adding an additional seven. It has also taken advantage of the advanced dynamic graphics on offer.  

Tim Bertoli, SVP, Global Media Operations, Vice Media Group, said of the news: “Amagi has been a great partner as we have pioneered adoption of cloud based services to augment our international distribution. The fully virtual playout deployment for our UK and France services, marks a natural transition as we continue to improve efficiencies in our operations.” 

Co-founder of Amagi, Srinivasan K.A., added: “Moving VICE TV to a fully virtualized playout infrastructure was the next logical step in our technology partnership. It helps us to create a robust and scalable broadcast infrastructure for VICE TV with built-in redundancy and security. Through our delivery network, we are able to distribute VICE TV content to a wider audience on a global scale.”
