Amagi, a leader in cloud-based broadcast infrastructure and targeted TV advertising platforms, has been named as a finalist for the 2016 IABM Game Changer Awards for its CUMULUS cloud broadcast platform. The CUMULUS platform is one of three final candidates in the Playout & Delivery Systems category and was shortlisted based on its ability to virtualize the entire content distribution workflow, including content preparation, management, playout, and monetization. CUMULUS also provides the flexibility to support different delivery models such as cable, satellite, cloud, IP, and OTT. “The IABM Game Changer Awards are a recognition from the industry experts for product innovation. It’s indeed a great honor to be one of the finalists,” said K.A. Srinivasan, co-founder of Amagi. “CUMULUS is the only platform that offers an end-to-end broadcast workflow on the cloud, bringing in flexibility, scalability, and cost efficiencies to broadcast operations.”
Amagi partners with best-in-class providers to stitch together a comprehensive workflow where TV networks can leverage the full power of cloud broadcast. Amagi will be expanding its CUMULUS partner ecosystem in the months to come, providing a wide choice for its customers as they transition to next-generation cloud platforms from existing traditional broadcast models.
Amagi has a track record of introducing game-changing products, winning the IBC Innovation Award and ASBU BroadcastPRO Middle East Innovative Project of the Year Award in the last six months.
The winning entries from the IABM Game Changer Awards will be automatically submitted for the prestigious Peter Wayne Award, which will be announced later this year. IABM Game Changer Award winners will be honored at a ceremony on April 19 at the 2016 NAB Show in room S231 of the Las Vegas Convention Center from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
