Amagi, a global leader in cloud-based SaaS technology for broadcast and connected TV, today announced the general availability of Amagi ON-DEMAND, its robust content management solution for orchestrating Video-On-Demand (VOD) content workflows. The product has already seen successful deployments from early adopters.
The product uses cloud automation to make every stage of the online content lifecycle – ingestion, transcoding, and delivery to multiple vMPVD, OTT, and Free Ad-Supported Streaming TV platforms – simple for the user. Over the years, Amagi has built more than fifty plug-and-play connectors for various platforms.
What makes Amagi ON-DEMAND unique
Amagi ON-DEMAND is a unique product in the market that offers an ‘ingest-once-for-multiple-deliveries’ option to content owners. Once a content asset is ingested on Amagi ON-DEMAND, it can be stored and normalized for any number of deliveries in the future, considerably reducing the time taken to bring VOD content assets for viewing.
As a preferred platform partner for many OTT/FAST service providers globally, Amagi has extensive knowledge of platform specifications and the capability to customize the delivery accordingly. This capability is further enhanced through Amagi ON-DEMAND, which tailors content formats to suit each platform’s unique requirements, removing the burden of managing disparate delivery specs for content owners.
“The product’s source conversion feature is a tremendous asset for content owners who wish to take advantage of the opportunities in VOD without having to upgrade their technology”, said KA Srinivasan, Co-founder, Amagi. “Add to that the easy access and real time alerts to the workflow metrics that empower content owners to run their operations without any glitches. All these while making their content accessible on all the leading streaming platforms!”
Amagi ON-DEMAND also integrates with Amagi CLOUDPORT, the award-winning broadcast-grade channel playout platform, and Amagi THUNDERSTORM, the dynamic server-side ad insertion platform, providing a unified solution to customers.
Amagi provides a complete suite of solutions for content creation, distribution, and monetization. The company offers wide distribution options with access to over 100 platforms including 50+ FAST platforms. Amagi clients include ABS-CBN, A+E Networks UK, beIN Sports, CuriosityStream, Discovery Networks, Fox Networks, Fremantle, NBCUniversal, Tastemade, Tegna, Vice Media, USA Today, and Warner Media, among others.
