The partnership, which integrates services between the two companies, will benefit TV networks around the world. They can now rely on guaranteed compatibility between the Amagi Skylight cloud-managed broadcast services platform and STN’s satellite uplink services for channel delivery and distribution.
Commenting on the development, Mitja Lovsin, chief commercial officer, STN, said: “STN is pleased to add Amagi’s cloud-based playout to our growing list of options for service solutions.
“Our customers that choose Amagi will get the scalability and cost savings that come from moving their operations to a full-featured, hardware-light, cloud-based infrastructure.”
K.A. Srinivasan, co-founder of Amagi, added: “We aim to find partners that help our clients strengthen their offerings over the cloud. STN is one of the world’s most used and fastest-growing teleports, with a reputation for reliability, which is what makes it the right kind of partner for us.
“Being able to cross-sell our services will help both companies, but most importantly, by leveraging our synergies, we can provide a world-class broadcast experience for our global TV-network customers.”
