In view of this launch, Baskar Subramanian, co-Founder, Amagi, expressed that as large and traditional broadcasters are starting to make cloud as their primary playout and distribution platform, the need of the hour is a complete platform that can accommodate all operational needs of broadcasters on the cloud platform.
