Horse & Country utilises remote playout management; Breaches the hurdle | Horse & Country TV, the international equestrian sports network, and Amagi, the leader in cloud-based broadcasting platform, successfully aired Rolex Grand Prix Live to homes in the UK using Amagi Cloudport, a cloud-enabled remote playout management platform.
“We have now demonstrated to the broadcast industry that live events can be managed by remote playout systems.” Said Heather Killen, CEO and Chairman of Horse & Country TV. The CHIO World Equestrian Festival held in Aachen, Germany was the first event of the prestigious Rolex Grand Prix, to be broadcast live in the UK. The entire playout was managed remotely by Amagi from its operations centre in Bangalore, India.
“Managing live feeds, inserting graphics and dynamically altering the playlist based on how an event unfolds are complex, especially when the playout is managed remotely. We are breaking new ground with this innovation on the Cloudport platform,” said Srividhya Srinivasan, co-founder and CTO, Amagi Media Labs.
