A new broadcast monitoring facility in New Delhi, India, has been opened by Amagi.
The facility can monitor up to 1,000 channels with around-the-clock support.
The new facility is powered by playout monitoring platform in the cloud, complete with advanced automation capabilities.
Amagi has invested in building automation across the workflow, including live and media ingest, pre-processing of content to explore automated delivery mechanisms, and making operations monitoring-efficient and automated.
The platform is also AI/ML-ready in terms of embracing audio-video-based machine-learning capabilities in driving automation further and reducing human costs and errors over time.
Baskar Subramanian, co-founder of Amagi, said: “As large and traditional broadcasters are starting to make cloud as their primary playout and distribution platform, the need of the hour is a complete platform that can accommodate all operational needs of broadcasters on the cloud platform. In this context, apart from cloud playout, it’s imperative that broadcasters also focus on comprehensive monitoring capabilities as well to manage broadcast operations on the cloud. Amagi’s new monitoring facility is a direct response to evolving needs of the industry.”
Amagi is exhibiting at IBC2019 on Stand 2.B19.
