Vice TV moves to Amagi cloud

Vice Media’s Vice TV network has migrated its UK and French channels to Amagi’s virtual cloud playout platform. The move means that all international services of Vice TV channels covering APAC and EMEA are now fully managed by Amagi.

For Vice TV, Amagi deployed Cloudport, its cloud-based channel playout platform. Using the Amagi cloud platform built on AWS public cloud infrastructure, Vice TV was able to deliver seven channels globally, expanding on its existing channel bouquet for the regions, according to Amagi.

Amagi clients include A+E Networks UK, Curiosity Stream, Discovery, Fox Networks, MGM, NBCUniversal, People TV, Tegna, and Warner Media.

“Amagi has been a great partner as we have pioneered adoption of cloud based services to augment our international distribution. The fully virtual playout deployment for our UK and France services, marks a natural transition as we continue to improve efficiencies in our operations”, said Tim Bertioli, SVP, global media operations, Vice Media Group.

“Moving Vice TV to a fully virtualized playout infrastructure was the next logical step in our technology partnership. It helps us to create a

robust and scalable broadcast infrastructure for Vice TV with built-in redundancy and security. Through our vast delivery network, we are able to distribute VICE TV content to a wider audience on a global scale”, said Srinivasan K.A., co-founder, Amagi.
