Amagi appoints new CEO

Cloud-managed broadcast services company Amagi has appointed former Encompass, Ascent Media, Bharti Airtel and BT executive, Deepakjit Singh, as its new CEO.

Singh has more than 30 years of experience in broadcast technology and will work to grow Amagi, particularly in the US where it launched in late 2017.

“Globally, there is a huge void in the media industry to provide distribution capabilities to content owners for both linear TV and non-linear video consumption market,” said Singh.

“With its technology, Amagi is perfectly positioned to fill this gap, delivering enviable business outcomes to broadcasters addressing their playout operations, management and monetisation needs.”

Amagi is an end-to-end cloud playout and managed services provider that offers broadcast services for TV and OTT.

The company claims to have deployments in more than 40 countries with clients that include Turner, Viceland, Scripps Networks and Cinedigm.
