Amagi to manage DogTV’s global broadcast operations

MUMBAI: DogTV, the world’s first television network that is made especially for dogs, has chosen Amagi to manage its global broadcast operations. DogTV has a global footprint across the US, South Korea, LatAm and Europe as well as Direct-to-Consumer subscription worldwide app.

Central to Amagi managed services is its award-winning cloud playout platform, Cloudport. From content ingest to scheduling, playout, delivery and monitoring, Amagi has created a cloud-led 24×7 service framework that is highly flexible and transparent.

“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. A clear orientation towards service quality with 24×7 service layers and industry-leading SLAs from Amagi has allowed us to focus on content creation and research rather than getting distracted by operational challenges,” said DogTV COO Omri Uzrad.

Leveraging its Cloudport advanced playout solution that is built on the cloud infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Amagi is able to centrally manage the entire playout, and create separate feeds for distribution. Amagi provides a fully managed service encompassing playout, management and multi-mode delivery including satellite, fiber and IP delivery to different platforms across the globe.

“DogTV is a one-of-its-kind TV network that has a huge potential for global expansion, insulated by geographical and language barriers. It’s imperative that they are supported by a service provider who can scale their operations on demand, test new markets cost-effectively, and stay at the forefront of broadcast technology innovation,” said Amagi CEO Deepakjit Singh.

“We are truly delighted to be the chosen partner for DogTV. Given their world of ad-free content, it’s critical that operational efficiencies make a conscious contribution to DogTV’s bottom-line. It would be our goal to deliver that service excellence and cost benefits throughout this partnership.”

Amagi has deployments in 40+ countries and delivers more than 160 channels to audiences worldwide. In addition to DogTV, Amagi clients include industry heavyweights such as Turner Broadcasting, Viceland, Discovery, Viacom18, Quest TV, Cinedigm, TYT Network, Zee TV, B4U Network and more.
