Thema picks Amagi for FAST distribution

SaaS leader Amagi has been selected by pay TV channel distributor Thema to distribute channels across international FAST platforms.

Thema’s business is made up of more than 180 channels across EMEA and North America. The company will utilise the broadcast-grade channel playout platform, Amagi CLOUDPORT, and the lightweight content scheduling platform, Amagi PLANNER, for media asset management and distribution. Thema will also deploy Amagi CONTENT PLUS to manage workflows of multiple streaming TV channels and their VOD assets. 

Sylvie Michel, deputy CEO Thema, said: “Having worked with Amagi for an earlier project, we were impressed with their expertise and commitment to deliver as promised. Amagi’s cloud-built solutions, Amagi CLOUDPORT and Amagi PLANNER, have been instrumental in helping us elevate our media asset management and worldwide distribution to FAST platforms such as Xiaomi, LG, TCL, and Roku. As we extend our reach across the globe, we hope to increasingly tap into Amagi’s extensive distribution network and rich expertise in bringing new platforms on board.”

Srinivasan KA, co-founder, Amagi, said: “Over the years, Thema has built an incredible presence, rapidly increasing its footprint across the globe and supporting content providers admirably. We look forward to a fruitful partnership as the world of entertainment evolves to create exciting new opportunities.”
