Amagi has announced the upgraded version of its broadcast-grade channel playout platform, Amagi Cloudport.
Amagi Cloudport is designed to reduce the complexity of workflow management. With support for HD and UHD video quality, captioning, advanced graphics, low latency and ad placement, the solution offers a choice of redundancy levels to ensure channels never go down.
