Monitoring

You can send your schedules in any format. Amagi’s managed services team integrates them with ad schedules, and graphic overlays to create a final, frame-accurate schedule. However, you can still make last minute changes to the playlists, and deliver the feed to operators without any interruptions.

We can directly coordinate with your ad/media agencies to create break lists, and ad schedules. Any schedule format can be picked up as per the requirement of the agencies.

Our MCR professionals with experience of managing a wide range of linear content genres drive editorial decisions. We can help you set up and monitor time-adjusted feeds with unique content in each geography. Amagi’s Live MCR is also capable of handling regulatory edits, and inserting custom graphics and advertisements to maximize promotional opportunities.

Your content and playout can be archived on secure cloud, for re-runs of most watched shows.

Amagi can monitor both transmitted (Tx) and received (Rx) playout 24/7. We can further reduce the possibility of errors by preparing a beta playout ahead of actual transmission, to test the possibility of errors. In case of any errors in actual playout, Amagi’s monitoring team is the first point of contact to resolve errors.
