Horse & Country TV and Amagi broadcast Rolex Grand Prix live using Cloudport platform

Horse & Country TV, a specialist international equestrian sports and lifestyle network, and Amagi, a leader in cloud-based broadcasting platform, have announced broadcast of the Rolex Grand Prix Live to homes in the UK using Amagi Cloudport, a cloud-enabled remote playout management platform.

“At Horse & Country TV, we strive to be in the vanguard of adopting new and efficient technologies such as the Cloudport infrastructure for broadcasting. Along with our playout partner Amagi, we have now demonstrated to the broadcast industry that live events can be managed by remote playout systems,” said Heather Killen, CEO and Chairman, Horse & Country TV.

The CHIO World Equestrian Festival was held at Aachen, Germany on July 20, 2014. This was the first time that the event was broadcast live in the UK. The entire playout was managed remotely by Amagi from its operations center in Bangalore.

“Managing live feeds, inserting graphics, and dynamically altering the playlist based on how an event unfolds is complex, especially when the playout is managed remotely. We are breaking new ground with this innovation on the Cloudport platform. We are quite delighted with the flawless telecast of the live event on Horse & Country TV,” said Srividhya Srinivasan, Co-founder and CTO, Amagi Media Labs.

Amagi’s Cloudport platform provides feature-rich and cost-effective remote playout of channels across multiple platforms anywhere in the world, while delivering service-levels matching traditional satellite or fiber models. The platform encompasses remote channel management tools, a cloud-enabled delivery and playout management hub, and remote playout servers at the edges.

John Wallace, Founder of Wallace Broadcasting, and technical advisor to Horse & Country TV said, “We chose the Amagi channel playout platform as it gave us the flexibility to cost-effectively manage localised playout of different H&C TV channels in individual countries. We now have the desired flexibility and robustness even for live events. Our teams are quite pleased with the event broadcast.”
