Amagi expands European footprint

Cloud-based SaaS tech provider Amagi has expanded its operations into France, DACH and NL markets as it continues to grow in Europe.

The company said that it has registered a year-over-year quarterly growth of 120% and that it provides support for more than 400 channels with over 1,000 delivery end points. Its clients in the region include Insight TV, Vice TV France, XITE, Sofy TV and Qwest TV. Further afield, the company also provides tech for the likes of WarnerMedia, Discovery Networks, NBCUniversal and A+E Networks UK, along with Fox Networks and CuriosityStream.

Part of this expansion comes with the recent appointment of industry veteran Stefan Niesen as Amagi’s VP of sales. Niesen has more than 20 years of experience in the industry and has held senior leadership roles at Ericsson, Espial and Beenius.

Srinivasan KA, co-founder, Amagi, said: “Europe is our second largest market, and in addition to the UK, France, DACH and NL regions present a strong demand for cloud solutions for live linear broadcast and monetisation across traditional cable and streaming TV platforms.

“We are in the midst of a huge industry transformation as clients are increasingly looking to virtualise their operations in the cloud, and explore new ways of distributing their content. Owing to its technology leadership and global experience, Amagi is well-positioned to be a reliable partner for broadcasters in the region.”
