Amagi says three channels from 4K UHD broadcaster Insight TV have been successfully transitioned to its Amagi cloud platform.
Insight TV Lifestyle, InWonder, and InTrouble are currently delivered to the STIRR platform in the United States, with InTrouble being delivered to the UK and Insight TV Lifestyle to Spain on Samsung TV Plus platform. Additionally, Insight TV Lifestyle is also delivered to the Oona TV platform in Indonesia.
Amagi deployed Cloudport to create the linear OTT channels and distribute them to Free Ad Supported platforms/Connected TVs such as STIRR and Samsung TV Plus.
“Choosing Amagi as our back-end cloud technology provider has brought about a remarkable ease to our operations, reducing overall costs and effort,” said Rian Bester, CEO, Insight TV. “Their solutions are already pre-integrated with STIRR, Samsung TV Plus and other leading platforms.
