Amagi, the global leader in cloud-based SaaS technology for broadcast and connected TV, today announced the launch of the latest version of its live orchestration solution, Amagi LIVE. The solution dynamically manages a variety of live events for linear and VOD channels, and is particularly tailored to the needs of news, sports, and other high-quality live content.
Amagi LIVE was one of the key technologies that NBC Sports Group employed for its production of the Games of the XXXII Olympiad in 2021. Since then, several preeminent sports and news content providers have chosen Amagi LIVE to automate their workflows and enhance the quality of their live content display.
Amagi LIVE makes it easy for single operators to manage multiple live segments and outputs simultaneously in real time and deliver worldwide. A unified interface makes the control of multiple feeds, switching of live sources, application of graphics and management of ad breaks efficient and accurate. Additionally, the optimized low latency levels offered by Amagi LIVE provides a seamless up-to-the minute experience for viewers.
The latest improvements include an enhanced user interface that combines functions including playlist view and edit, and management of file based and live content together. The breaks are easily organized within the event. Ordered, segmented breaks can occur without intervention. Various interface elements like current playing, coming up, countdown timers, play/ stop unplanned graphics, missing asset list, and more facilitate fast action operation.

With Amagi LIVE, content owners gain a flexible, high-speed live orchestration platform that delivers broadcast-grade quality at a cost advantage.
