By tapping into its network of Free Ad Supported Television (FAST) platform partnerships, Amagi will also create a delivery strategy for ADN to further increase the channel’s reach.
ADN is a leading SVOD and OTT platform exclusively dedicated to anime and manga. It offers a wide variety of French and Japanese animation series and has over 10,000 episodes and films adapted from the most popular manga. ADN’s subscription model and catalogue serve as major differentiators.
In addition to Amagi Cloudport for channel creation and playout, ADN will also deploy Amagi Live, a UHD ready, cloud-based live orchestration platform for broadcasting live events. Amagi On-Demand, an orchestration platform for VOD) delivery, will deliver ADN’s VOD assets to a multitude of OTT and vMVPD platforms in the future. Amagi will also support ADN’s monetisation efforts through Amagi Thunderstorm, an automated ad detection and OTT dynamic ad insertion platform.
Commenting on the partnership, Julien Lemoine, CEO, ADN, said: “We were impressed by the deep technical capabilities that Amagi’s cloud solutions provided and the reach that Amagi offered through its global FAST platform partnerships.
“Amagi’s local presence in France was a bonus. We are confident that the full suite of technology solutions offered to us by Amagi will help us make inroads into our target segments”.
Srinivasan KA, co-founder, Amagi, added: “Amagi’s unified cloud solutions make channel creation and playout simple and quickly scalable to content creators. Adding our growing platform partnerships to our existing advanced cloud-based technology offerings further amplifies the possibility of the channel’s success.
