The network will be leveraging its broadcast operations on the CLOUDPORT playout platform from Amagi
As a TV network made specifically for dogs, Dog TV has a footprint spanned across the US, South Korea, Latin America and Europe, as well as direct-to-consumer subscription app available worldwide. In an attempt to focus on content creation, Dog TV has decided to assign Amagi to manage its global broadcast operations.
Dog TV will be utilising Amagi’s CLOUDPORT playout platform, which is designed for the management of content ingest to scheduling, playout, delivery and monitoring.
Omri Uzrad, COO of Dog TV, commented: “Now, we always have a full view and control of our broadcast operations even when Amagi is managing the day-to-day playout and delivery workflows. Amagi gives us the flexibility to scale our operations cost-effectively – be it on digital, satellite or cable.”
The CLOUDPORT advanced playout solution is built on the cloud infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS), and is able to centrally manage the entire playout, and create separate feeds for distribution. Additionally, Amagi provides a managed service encompassing playout, management and multi-mode delivery including satellite, fibre, and IP delivery to different platforms across the globe.
Deepakjit Singh, CEO at Amagi, concluded: “We are delighted to be the chosen partner for Dog TV. Given their world of ad-free content, it’s critical that operational efficiencies make a conscious contribution to Dog TV’s bottom-line. It would be our goal to deliver that service excellence and cost benefits throughout this partnership.”
