Amagi can directly coordinate with your ad/media partner to integrate with any ad server of your choice for effective monetization of your content. Amagi can also set up ad insertion platform that can dynamically insert personalized ads.

Our MCR professionals with experience of managing a wide range of live and linear formats for OTT. Amagi’s team can make expert editorial decisions to switch from live to non-live, insert ads and graphic etc.

Amagi can record live content, and convert it into VOD-ready packages. An episode of a popular show in your linear feed can be converted into an accessible VOD segment, or simply archived for later usage.

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.
