A&E Networks UK has moved its playout and service delivery for its 30 European channels to Amagi’s Cloud platform running on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
The channels consist of 23 from A+E Networks UK, based in London and seven from A+E Networks Italia based in Rome.
Amagi has deployed CLOUDPORT, its Cloud platform built on AWS Cloud infrastructure to support end-to-end broadcast workflows and managed playout services.
Over 50,000 hours of content has been ingested on to the Cloud, with playout and delivery of the 30 channels managed over IP, satellite and fibre infrastructure. The service is equipped with an SLA-driven 24×7 monitoring using advanced technology tools, and L1, L2 and L3 support personnel.
“This partnership is an important milestone in our goal to create an effective, scalable and future-facing operation in the Cloud that is well positioned in our supply chain,” said Matt Westrup, VP of technology and operations, A+E Networks EMEA. “It allows us greater flexibility to manage our evolving EMEA portfolio. With the level of visibility, agility and control that the Cloud offers, we can now manage our broadcast operations in EMEA remotely and this has been a huge advantage for us especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.”
