Amagi is working with Little Dot Studios, a digital content studio and broadcaster, to help deliver its expansion into OTT and CTV platforms.
Little Dot Studios is one of the largest distributors of premium television content on YouTube and is now distributing its linear streaming channels and AVOD to over 15 digital platforms. Its digital brands Timeline and Absolute History already generate more than 650,000 unique views a day with Timeline amassing 1.9 million subscribers on YouTube alone.
Little Dot has recently launched four linear channels - Wonder, Real Stories, Real Families and Timeline which are being distributed to audiences in the UK, US and Australia on Free Ad Supported Streaming TV (FAST) platforms such as Samsung TV Plus, Plex and Netgem. The channel delivery is rapidly expanding to other streaming TV platforms and territories.
Little Dot Studios has been using Amagi’s Cloudport cloud broadcast platform to manage and distribute 24/7 broadcast-grade linear channels to streaming TV platforms. The broadcast workflow–ingest, scheduling, playout and delivery can all be configured on the AWS cloud through a simple web UI from any remote location. Further, Amagi Thunderstorm Dynamic Ad Insertion (DAI) helps facilitate the monetisation of content across all the FAST platforms.
Richard Young, director of syndication, Little Dot Studios, said: “Partnering with Amagi has enabled us to schedule and deliver our streaming channels supporting our international expansion on AVOD platforms.”
Srinivasan KA, co-founder, Amagi, said: “Little Dot Studios joins our prestigious list of 400+ channels, bringing premium factual entertainment content to FAST platforms worldwide. We look forward to supporting their continued global roll out.”
